Southwest to stop serving peanuts on flights on August 1, CNBC reports

Southwest Airlines (LUV) will stop serving peanuts starting August 1, CNBC reports. The decision comes after Southwest and other airlines have grappled with passenger allergies, which can cause severe and even life-threatening reactions. American (AAL) and United (UAL) do not serve packaged peanuts on board but they warn passengers that other foods and snacks they serve can contain nuts or other foods to which some passengers may be allergic. Delta (DAL) will not serve peanuts on board if a passenger notifies the airline of an allergy. Reference Link

Southwest downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus
As reported earlier, Argus analyst John Staszak downgraded Southwest Airlines to Hold from Buy, saying that despite being well managed and financially strong, its focus on the domestic market will lead to slower relative growth based on better expected performance in the international space. The analyst also anticipates Southwest to experience reduced near-term demand following the April accident which led to the death of one passenger, even as 2018 revenue benefits from the "sale of boarding slots, improvements in the frequent-flier program, a new reservation system, and a new credit card agreement with Chase". Staszak also lowers his FY18 EPS forecast to $4.70 from $4.90 and FY19 forecast to $5.20 from $5.50.

Evercore ISI analyst Duane Pfennigwerth added Southwest to the firm's Core Ideas List following "encouraging" investor meetings with senior leadership, citing the stock's underperformance year-to-date, depressed investor sentiment, the company's network strength and its capital return and revenue improvement potential. He maintains an Outperform rating and $62 price target on Southwest shares.

Deutsche downgrades three airlines on 'headline risk' from trade dispute
Deutsche Bank analyst Michael Linenberg downgraded his ratings on American Airlines Group (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL) and United Continental (UAL) to Hold from Buy. The analyst cut his price target for American to $43 from $60, for Delta to $53 from $64 and for United to $74 from $81. In a world of "heightened" macroeconomic and geopolitical risks, economically-sensitive, high beta stocks such as airlines typically underperform the broader market, Linenberg tells investors in a research note. The possibility that the current trade dispute between the U.S. and its global partners could become something bigger is problematic for the airline industry's sales growth, the analyst adds. Further, Linenberg argues, the growing trade dispute may cause U.S. companies to reconsider their spending and employment plans, which would adversely impact corporate travel. As a result, the analyst sees "headline risk" and a lack of near-term catalysts for the airline stocks. He keeps Buy ratings on Alaska Air (ALK), Allegiant Travel (ALGT), JetBlue Airways (JBLU), Southwest Airlines (LUV), Spirit Airlines (SAVE) and SkyWest (SKYW).

Watsco (WSO), Fastenal (FAST), and Grainger (GWW) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird with analyst David Manthey saying he thinks the cycle and individual company results could remain solid for quarters or years to come, but he believes the cycle is in its later stages, thereby elevating risks to gross margins, rising labor costs, and earnings deceleration in 2019.

Delta Air Lines price target lowered to $65 from $70 at Citi
Citi analyst Kevin Crissey lowered his price target for Delta Air Lines (DAL) to $65 after management revised yesterday the company's Q2 guidance. Unit revenue is now expected at the higher end of the previous range, but predictably, fuel prices will also be higher, Crissey tells investors in a research note. "Somewhat disappointingly," Q2 non-fuel unit costs were guided upward but full-year 2018 CASM ex guidance was held at 0%-2%, the analyst adds. He remains a buyer of Delta shares but sees more upside in United Continental (UAL).
