Volkswagen upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Philippe Houchois upgraded Volkswagen to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to EUR 220 from EUR 180. The analyst likes the recent management changes but says what matters most is the "generational change at Porsche SE," which he views as VW's "most promising agent of change." The analyst is "convinced" that VW-Porsche have what it takes to be the next FCA-Exor.

VW acquisition scenario supports $53 Navistar target, says Jefferies
Recent news flow regarding a separation of Volkswagen's (VLKAY) Truck and Bus business and the potential for full ownership of Navistar (NAV) has driven Navistar shares up 13% relative to the S&P 500 over the past month, Jefferies analyst Stephen Volkmann tells investors in a research note. After examining potential synergies and valuation scenarios for a tie-up, the analyst has increased confidence in his high-on-the-Street $53 price target for Navistar shares.

Jefferies lists buys on 'wildly overdone' electric truck concerns
The ramp of electric trucks amp may be slower than in passenger cars, and incumbent truck makers are likely to remain key players, Jefferies analyst Stephen Volkmann tells investors in a research note. To a much greater extent than in passenger vehicles, commercial vehicle sales rely on uptime and return on investment, and are driven by brand relationship and dealer support, Volkmann adds. He views the "terminal multiple" concerns for established truck players as "wildly overdone" and recommends buying shares of Paccar (PCAR), Navistar (NAV), Volkswagen (VLKAY) and Volvo (VOLVY).

As VW appointment drives Navistar speculation, Jefferies sees eventual buyout
Noting that Navistar (NAV) shares are rising amid broader market weakness today following a Reuters report that Volkswagen (VLKAY) has appointed a new CFO noted to be an M&A expert, Jefferies analyst Stephen Volkmann said he continues to believe Volkswagen will pursue full ownership of Navistar, although he calls the timing of such an event "highly uncertain." He maintains a Buy rating and "Street high" price target of $53 on Navistar shares.

Ford upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Philippe Houchois upgraded Ford Motor to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $14 from $13. The stock closed Friday down 11c to $11.51. The company is getting no credit for its "ambitious but credible" cost targets and "strategic levers" to improve market and product exposure, Houchois tells investors in a research note. The analyst thinks Ford is early among global carmakers in reevaluating how it allocates capital. Ford is his top pick among U.S. car manufacturers.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ford (F) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Philippe Houchois saying the company is getting no credit for its "ambitious but credible" cost targets and "strategic levers" to improve market and product exposure. 2. Roku (ROKU) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Benjamin Swinburne saying the shares are now down over 25% year-to-date while the company's "core fundamentals," such as ARPU and user growth, have been consistently coming in ahead of his prior expectations. 3. Phillips 66 (PSX) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Roger Read saying the IMO 2020 low sulfur marine fuel rule in his estimation will be a positive for the U.S. Independent Refiners. 4. Agnico Eagle (AEM) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Andrew Kaip saying the company stands to benefit from "solid production growth" of 30% through 2020 following the addition of Meliadine assets into the pipeline and an improving free cash flow profile. 5. Occidental Petroleum (OXY) upgraded to Overweight from Equalweight at Capital One. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Morgan Stanley says Softbank stake in Cruise significant 'far beyond' just GM
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas said Softbank's (SFTBF) recently announced investment in GM Cruise "carries significance far beyond" General Motors (GM), arguing that the increasingly conspicuous involvement of "outside validators" such as large-cap tech firms and prominent investors can accelerate perception change in the capital markets about "Auto 2.0." He envisions the possible formation of two different companies currently held under one automaker's roof, which he dubs an Auto 2.0 "Yieldco" and an Auto 2.0 "Growthco." Converting car owners into monthly subscribers could open up significant revenue, profit, and value opportunities for traditional automakers, argues Jonas in a note to investors. Other automaking "OEMs" include Ford (F), Daimler (DDAIF), Toyota (TM), Honda (HMC), Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) and BMW Group (BAMXY).

Morgan Stanley questions if Ford has a 'business problem or a marketing problem'
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas estimate that Ford's F-Series pickup truck will produce $42B of revenues in 2018 and produce net income of approximately $6.5B. Excluding Ford Motor, he believes the F-Series franchise would rank #72 on the Fortune 500 list by revenues and that the F-Series ranks "well inside the top 50 companies" in the U.S. in terms of profitability. Given these estimates, Jonas wonders in his note to investors whether Ford has "a business problem or a marketing problem," questioning if the stock market just does "not appreciate the extremely large value of the F-Series business" or if it offsets this large value with "an implied large negative value" of over $10B for the rest of Ford's business. Jonas maintains an Overweight rating and $16 price target on Ford shares.
