Sherwin-Williams, Huntsman, Ferro 'top ideas' in Chemicas, says KeyBanc

KeyBanc analyst Michael Sison previewed the Chemicals sector and told investors in a research note that earnings growth for the Chemicals Universe is "heading in the right direction" for 2018, though the sector is off to a relatively flat share price performance through Q2 vs. the S&P 500 +2%. Sison says his checks suggest demand for chemicals remains robust and expects to see mid-single digit organic growth during Q2 and 2H given pricing progress this year. He says his top ideas include Sherwin-Williams (SHW), Huntsman (HUN), Versum Materials (VSM) and Ferro (FOE).

Sherwin-Williams price target lowered to $470 from $490 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Arun Viswanathan lowered his price target on Sherwin-Williams to $470, citing worse than expected results for Americas and below-consensus comps in Q1. The analyst keeps his Outperform rating however, noting that the soft quarter was due to adverse weather and exogenous factors while forecasting better results in Q2-Q3. Viswanathan recommends that investors acquire Sherwin-Williams shares on weakness amid recovering growth and the expected reversal in price to input costs trends in the second half.

U.S. paint demand seeing modest deceleration in Q2, says Longbow
Longbow analyst Dmitry Silversteyn said his checks indicate that the domestic paint market is seeing a modest deceleration in demand to low-single digit levels in Q2, which may make it more difficult for PPG (PPG) and Sherwin-Williams (SHW) to beat expectations. However, Silversteyn maintains Buy ratings on both PPG and Sherwin-Williams shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Oracle (ORCL) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill and to Hold from Buy at Stifel. 2. Huntsman (HUN) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Nomura Instinet with analyst Aleksey Yefremov saying he believes the shares are unlikely to outperform until demand for MDI-based polyurethanes markets finds a bottom. 3. Signet Jewelers (SIG) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Lorraine Hutchinson saying Signet lacks growth visibility near-term and lowered estimates to reflect a weak base business, credit transition issues, and a loss of EBIT from subprime credit outsourcing. 4. Dominion (D) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith saying the latest FERC policy changes is a headwind to Dominion's dropdown desire into Dominion Midstream (DM) and could impact valuations of midstream assets. 5. Essex Property Trust (ESS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust with analyst Michael Lewis saying the stock's recent outperformance has narrowed its discount to NAV to the smallest margin among its peers, even though its leverage and earnings growth rate are comparable to those of peers.

Huntsman price target raised to $43 from $35 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Laurence Alexander raised his price target for Huntsman to $43 saying the company's "solid end" to 2017 bodes well for 2018. Huntsman last night announced that although its Performance Product segment EBITDA would be hindered by the unplanned outages and weather issues in the Gulf Coast, this would be more than offset by MDI tightness in Q4, Alexander tells investors in a research note. The analyst raised his estimates and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

TSMC 'hiccup' should be considered transient, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Chris Kapsch said Taiwan Semiconductor's (TSM) below-consensus Q2 outlook and reduced full-year sales guidance is primarily due to near-term smartphone demand and seasonality, which should be considered transient. He still thinks bigger picture secular trends and drivers - including strong memory chip demand, as well as future growth tied to IoT, AI and 5G communications - remain in place. While TSMC's view for weaker than previously anticipated Q2 results increases risk for electronic chemical stocks Versum (VSM), Entegris (ENTG) and Cabot Micro (CCMP), Kapsch said he remains comfortable with his favorable views on Entegris and Cabot. He is more cautious on Versum, given more risk associated with the capital equipment cycle and his belief that its earnings growth may trail key peers. Kapsch keeps Buy ratings on Entegris and Cabot and a Hold rating on Versum.

Versum Materials upgraded to Buy at Argus on stronger environment, new products
As reported earlier, Argus analyst David Coleman upgraded Versum Materials to Buy from Hold with a price target of $44. Coleman says the company should continue to benefit from its separation from Air Products amid a "stronger industry environment and the launch of new products". The analyst also points to its recent earnings beat and raised FY18 outlook. Coleman further notes that the valuation on Versum is in line with the industry peers at 16.9-times forward earnings, but contends that the company's favorable growth prospects warrant a higher multiple.

Versum Materials upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Laurence Alexander upgraded Versum Materials to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $50 from $39. Logic and memory demand coupled with demand for new, higher-performance materials create an attractive environment for the company, Alexander tells investors in a research note. He believes Versum has a "more resilient growth profile" while trading only at a market multiple.
