Repeat option activity in Ford as shares roll higher

Repeat option activity in Ford as shares roll higher. The stock up 19c to $11.52 and 40K Jan 12 calls trade for 59c when bid-ask was 57 to 59c. It appears to add to a similar block bought for 55c just before the weekend and, like Friday, tied to 1.7M shares. Two days of call buying in the Jan19s expresses confidence that shares can move higher during the second half of 2018 after the 7.7% decline seen YTD thus far.

Ford downgraded to Neutral with $12 target at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Alexander Potter downgraded Ford Motor to Neutral from Overweight and reduced his price target for the shares to $12 from $14. The analyst says that while stock's valuation still appears low, relative to other stocks he covers, he's less convinced that Ford "can find compelling revenue drivers to offset secular threats." With U.S. vehicle sales slowly eroding, investors are looking for more fundamental changes from Ford, Potter tells investors in a research note. The analyst thinks Ford may capture its share of the $1 trillion-plus market for autonomous rides, but he notes the company isn't a leader in the market.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ford (F) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Alexander Potter saying that while stock's valuation still appears low, relative to other stocks he covers, he's less convinced that Ford "can find compelling revenue drivers to offset secular threats." 2. aTyr Pharma (LIFE) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst Joel Beatty saying a lack of clinical data and early stage of understanding for lead agent ATYR1923 create a low probability of success. 3. ClearOne (CLRO) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at B. Riley FBR. 4. Travelport (TVPT) downgraded to Neutral on valuation at BofA/Merrill with analyst John King citing relative valuation. 5. W&T Offshore (WTI) downgraded to Sell from Hold at KLR Group with analyst Gail Nicholson citing the stock's out-performance of the SPDR Oil Exploration and Production Fund (XOP) by about 54% over the last month.

Ford transformation to push earnings, shares higher, says JPMorgan
After meeting with management, JPMorgan analyst Ryan Brinkman believes Ford is "in the process of pulling the trigger, or soon to pull the trigger, on walking away from previously core but loss-making aspects of its business." The analyst suggests investors "pull the trigger on Ford shares now," believing its earnings and valuation multiple are likely to inflect higher as the company undergoes its transformation. He keeps an Overweight rating on Ford with a $15 price target.
