Agilent pullback a buying opportunity, says Jefferies

Jefferies analyst Brandon Couillard recommends using the post-earnings pullback in shares of Agilent Technologies as a buying opportunity. Guidance was maintained, despite dilution from Lasergen, and does not yet capture accretion from the pending AATI deal, Couillard tells investors in a research note. He sees no reason to alter his positive thesis and keeps a Buy rating on Agilent with a slightly reduced price target of $80.

Goldman upgrades Agilent to Buy ahead of Q1 earnings season
Goldman Sachs analyst Patrick Donnelly upgraded Agilent Technologies (A) to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $77 from $73. Heading into the Q1 earnings season, the analyst sees an attractive fundamental backdrop across Tools. He believes, however, that the favorable backdrop is well understood by investors with valuations that "remain well-above 10-year highs." The analyst prefers the "idiosyncratic drivers of growth" for Agilent in the out years and views the stock's relative valuation as attractive. He coupled the upgrade with a downgrade of Mettler-Toledo (MTD) to Neutral.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. General Motors (GM) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Adam Jonas saying he sees room for positive earnings revisions for GM, Ford (F) and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) as investors better understand the impact on U.S. pick-up truck sales from a potential passage of a U.S. infrastructure bill. 2. TD Ameritrade (AMTD) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Michael Carrier saying he views TD Ameritrade's near-term outlook as attractive given healthy new net asset growth, higher interest rates, and strong DARTs. 3. Comerica (CMA) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Peter Winter saying he sees several levers that should drive above average earnings per share growth over the next two years, including margin expansion, potential resumption of loan growth, and above average capital returns. 4. Agilent (A) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Patrick Donnelly saying he sees an attractive fundamental backdrop across Tools. 5. Discover (DFS) and Ally Financial (ALLY) were upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Stephens. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Outperform
Agilent core growth slowing, but underlying business healthy, says Baird
Baird analyst Catherine Ramsey Schulte said Agilent's Q2 growth hit the guidance midpoint, but fell short of expectations due to unforeseen headwinds in China and ICP/MS shipment timing. She noted management remains bullish on end-market outlooks and she still believes they are being conservative with guidance. Although the company's core growth is slowing, she said the underlying business is healthy. Schulte reiterated her Outperform rating and lowered her price target to $77 from $78 on Agilent shares.
