UPS price target lowered to $121 from $130 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Fadi Chamoun lowered the price target on UPS to $121 after the company's worse than expected Q1 core operating earnings that were driven by weaker results in the U.S. Domestic segment. The analyst does note "several positives" in the reported quarter, including robust demand and pricing environment as well as easing pressure on the U.S. operating margins. Chamoun keeps UPS rating at Market Perform amid constructive outlook on demand countered by investments in the domestic network remaining a source of pressure on operating margins in the near term.

Deutsche sees last mile competition having 'muted' impact on XPO
Deutsche Bank analyst Amit Mehrotra highlights a Reuters report saying UPS (UPS) and Werner Enterprises (WERN) are in in talks to partner on a new in-home delivery service for bulk goods. This development follows Ryder's (R) acquisition last month of MXD Group, Mehrotra tells investors in an intraday research note. The analyst sees implications for XPO, noting the company's last mile delivery of heavy goods is one of its fastest growing businesses. Despite the headline risks, fundamental implications for XPO are likely "muted," Mehrotra contends. He believes XPO has built a competitive advantage around its owned service center model and sees the heavy goods last mile market, estimated at $13B per annum and growing at 10%-15%, as allowing for more entrants without much impact to existing players. XPO in morning trading is down 2% to $93.89. Mehrotra has a Buy rating on the shares with a $133 price target.

UPS upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA analyst Ken Hoexter upgraded UPS to Buy and raised its price target to $144 from $120. Hoexter thinks UPS's Network Transformation plan that will be launched in a couple months will improve its cost structure and margins, and could prove to be the turning point for the company and drive the multiple back toward historical levels.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. UPS (UPS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ken Hoexter saying he thinks UPS's Network Transformation plan that will be launched in a couple months will improve its cost structure and margins, and could prove to be the turning point for the company and drive the multiple back toward historical levels. 2. FMC Corporation (FMC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Robert Koort saying the solid first quarter report convinced him to change his rating as pro forma orgnaic growth rates were very strong, and earnings contribution from the DowDuPont (DWDP) acquisition far exceeded his expectations. 3. L Brands (LB) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Paul Lejuez saying he acknowledges this is "not an 'all's clear' type of call," and that things may get worse before they get better, however, he feels consensus sentiment has become so bearish and the stock's valuation is "just too cheap to ignore." 4. Lear (LEA) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst Chris McNally saying he sees double digit earnings growth through 2020 with earnings growth set to accelerate in 2019 on the back of the GM truck launch and acceleration of E-Systems given megatrends in Electrification & Connectivity. 5. CSX (CSX) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Matt Reustle citing better risk/reward following successful execution of Q1 network initiatives.
