Gap issues apology for selling shirt with 'incorrect' map of China, Reuters says

Gap (GPS) has apologized for selling a T-shirt which it said had an incorrect map of China, adding it would implement "rigorous reviews" to prevent a repeat mistake, Reuters reports. Gap's apology came after a person posted pictures of the shirt on Chinese social media network Weibo, saying that Chinese territories, including south Tibet, the island of Taiwan and the South China Sea, were omitted from the map. In a statement posted on its Weibo account, Gap said it "respects the sovereignty and territorial integrity of China. We've learned that a Gap brand T-shirt sold in some overseas markets failed to reflect the correct map of China. We sincerely apologize for this unintentional error." Other U.S. companies which have issued apologies for similar incidents include Delta (DAL) and Marriott (MAR). Reference Link

Gap price target raised to $33 from $30 at Oppenheimer as firm stays sidelined
Oppenheimer analyst Anna Andreeva raised her price target on Gap to $33 from $30, telling investors in a research note that she is staying "sidelined" on Gap and expects a "skewed recovery" in the business in the second half of 2018. Andreeva, who has a Perform rating on Gap, said despite "impressive" momentum at Old Navy, she expects challenges at the Gap division to continue and sees pressures from promotions and inventory imbalance through the first half of the year. In order for shares to "work," the analyst said an inflection at Gap and Banana Republic is necessary, but doesn't see this happening until the second half "at the earliest."

Gap price target raised to $35 from $27 at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Roxanne Meyer raised her price target on Gap to $35 after the company's Q4 results showed better than expected comps and a "significantly higher gross margin increase". Meyer adds that the comps at each segment accelerated on a 2-year stock, while traffic trends were also improved. The analyst keeps her Neutral rating on the stock, preferring to wait for better visibility that the strength of Old Navy and the shift toward higher performing concepts will "unlock earnings power" this year.

Gap price target raised to $35 from $29 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst John Morris raised his price target on Gap to $35 after the company's Q4 beat on earnings, revenue, and gross margins. Morris keeps his Market Perform rating on the stock however, pointing to a 9% rise in inventories and warns that gross margins could be pressured in the near term as the company works through its "sizable inventory overhang of likely out-of-season product". Among the positives, the analyst cites the company's use of data analytics to develop a "customer moat" in product and also points to Gap's digital channel growth of 30% in Q4.

Delta Q1 report shows initiatives producing 'impressive' results, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Jack Atkins said that Delta's Q1 report demonstrates that the company's segmentation, co-branding initiatives, and efforts to improve international performance are producing "impressive" results. The analyst, who thinks Delta is undervalued given the company's strong revenue, earnings and cash flow momentum, reiterates his Overweight rating and $71 price target on the airline's shares.

Delta Air Lines deserves premium multiple, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Rajeev Lalwani noted that Delta currently trades at an average multiple versus peers of about 8x 2019 consensus EPS estimates. However, given his belief that Delta deserves a greater premium to account for a host of above average metrics and his view of the potential for a moderately higher multiple being assigned to the U.S. Airlines group, Lalwani raised his price target on Delta to $72 from $66. He maintains an Overweight rating on the stock.

Overweight
Spirit Airlines upgraded to Overweight from Underweight at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Jamie Baker double upgraded Spirit Airlines (SAVE) to Overweight from Underweight with an unchanged price target of $46. The stock closed Friday up 9c to $35.49. Down 20% year-to-date, Spirit's shares are the sector's worst performer, Baker tells investors in a research note. The selloff took place despite the removal of the pilot overhang and the unexpected lease-to-purchase swap "which negates much of the pilot impact on CASM," the analyst adds. Further, Baker now sees a "more plausible" path back to the $4 earnings per share range next year. The analyst this morning also downgraded shares of JetBlue (JBLU) to Neutral. He still likes the risk/reward profile on the "Big Three" relative to the discounters, and maintains Overweight ratings on American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL) and United Continental (UAL).

Stifel says Alaska, JetBlue may be targets if 'Big 4' think they can consolidate
Stifel analyst Joseph DeNardi said in a note to investors prior to the open that the proposed merger of Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS), and the related approval process, is the first major test of the Trump administration's view on consolidation. Depending on how this case plays out, management teams at the "Big 4" airlines would have significant interest in acquiring Alaska Air (ALK) or JetBlue (JBLU) if they think they could be successful in doing so, he contends. He believes the current consensus in the industry is that Alaska will serve as buyer and consolidator within its segment, but should the Big 4 believe that they could be permitted to be buyers, the M&A outlook would likely change, DeNardi tells investors.

Morgan Stanley analyst Thomas Allen downgraded Hilton (HLT) to Equal Weight from Overweight despite raising his price target to $84 from $81, saying he sees fewer "idiosyncratic bull case drivers" for it versus Marriott (MAR) and La Quinta (LQ). He also said he is concerned around HNA's 25% Hilton stake, which could become a greater overhang if HNA begins unwinding other investments.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Chipotle (CMG) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Stifel with analyst Chris O'Cull saying that his opinion of the company's fundamentals has not changed, but sentiment has improved and he believes investor optimism will likely outweigh fundamentals in the near-term. 2. Hyatt (H) and Marriott (MAR) were upgraded to In Line from Underperform at Evercore ISI. 3. Flowserve (FLS) upgraded to Sector Perform from Underperform at RBC Capital with analyst Deane Dray citing his expectations of an announcement of a turnaround plan from the new CEO and believes the stock may have bottomed, since the fourth quarter operating miss and "low-balled fiscal 2018 outlook" did not produce new selling pressure. 4. UPS (UPS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Edward Jones. 5. Universal Display (OLED) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Needham with analyst James Ricchiuti saying he has been looking for the right entry point on the stock since the summer, and the recent 25% selloff from the high offers that opportunity. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
