On The Fly: What to watch in Ford earnings report

Ford (F) is scheduled to report results of its second fiscal quarter after the market close on July 25, with a conference call scheduled for 5:30 pm EDT. What to watch for: 1. GUIDANCE: When Ford reported its Q1 results on April 25, it affirmed its FY18 adjusted earnings per share guidance of $1.45-$1.70, against an analyst consensus of $1.56 at that time. Ford also said it expected FY18 revenue growth modestly higher than FY17. On May 9, Ford affirmed its adjusted EPS view once more. Consensus estimates were $1.55 at that time. 2. GENERAL MOTORS RESULTS: General Motors (GM) reported its Q2 results before the market opened this morning. GM reported Q2 adjusted EPS $1.81 and revenue $36.8B, against analyst estimates of $1.78 and $36.73B, respectively. GM also cut its FY18 adjusted diluted EPS view to approximately $6.00, lowered from the "mid-$6" range. 3. FORD AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES: Ford announced it has created Ford Autonomous Vehicles LLC, a new organization charged with accelerating its AV business to capitalize on market opportunities. The company also detailed key organizational changes designed to improve its operational fitness and drive profitable growth. The company said it is organizing its self-driving business into Ford Autonomous Vehicles, which will include Ford's self-driving systems integration, autonomous vehicle research and advanced engineering, AV transportation-as-a-service network development, user experience, business strategy and business development teams. The new LLC, which is structured to take on third party investment, will be primarily based at Ford's Corktown campus in Detroit and will hold Ford's ownership stake in Argo AI, the company's Pittsburgh-based partner for self-driving system development. Ford expects to invest $4B in its AV efforts through 2023, including its $1B investment in Argo AI.

Visteon downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst David Tamberrino downgraded Visteon (VC) to Neutral from Buy, citing potential near-term risks given its high exposure to Ford (F), high 2019 consensus revenue growth expectations, and risk for its DriveCore AV/ADAS platform. Tamberrino, who thinks 2019 may be a "gap year" for revenue growth, cut his price target on Visteon shares to $142 from $150.

JPMorgan says buy GM, sell Tesla into Q2 earnings reports
JPMorgan analyst Ryan Brinkman forecasts lower than consensus Q2 earnings for Ford (F) and higher than Street earnings for General Motors (GM). Both companies are likely to be impacted by higher commodity costs during the quarter, although the decline in spot prices subsequent to the quarter should limit impact to the full year, Brinkman tells investors in a research note previewing the Q2 earnings for the automakers. The analyst is also concerned about the potential for a "large loss and accompanying large cash outflow" at Tesla in Q2 to "make the bridge" to GAAP profitability and positive cash generation in the second half of the year. Brinkman maintains Overweight ratings on GM and Ford, with a preference for GM shares. He also keeps his cautious Underweight rating on Tesla shares, seeing 44% downside to his $180 December 2018 price target.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. BOFA CUTS YUM CHINA TO UNDERPERFORM: BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Chen Luo downgraded Yum China (YUMC) to Underperform from Neutral and cut its price target to $34 from $44.30. Luo said he expects Yum China to continue to underperform given a likely peak in KFC trends amid China's weakening macro environment, a likely prolonged turnaround at Pizza Hut combined with heavy costs, a slowdown in Chinese consumer consumption, and RMB depreciation. Yum China is down 4.8% in late morning trading. CREDIT SUISSE CUTS FIVE BELOW TO NEUTRAL: Credit Suisse analyst Judah Frommer downgraded Five Below (FIVE) to Neutral from Outperform, telling investors that he is moving to the sidelines as he sees risk/reward balanced at current levels given the stock's material outperformance and back-half comp acceleration that he believes is priced into shares. Frommer keeps his $110 price target and says Five Below remains one of the most differentiated concepts in retail. Five Below is down 4.4% in late morning trading. BAIRD MORE CAUTIOUS ON DRUG SUPPLY CHAIN: Baird analyst Eric Coldwell downgraded Express Scripts (ESRX), AmerisourceBergen (ABC), and McKesson (MCK), all to Neutral from Outperform, citing the heavy political attack in recent weeks against pharmacy benefit managers and members of the drug supply chain. Among them, he said AmerisourceBergen remains his preferred name, but he cannot justify putting new money to work in these names in the current environment. SUNTRUST STARTS VIKING WITH A BUY: SunTrust analyst Edward Nash initiated Viking Therapeutics (VKTX) with a Buy rating and a price target of $14, saying its VK2809 drug for lipid disorders "has the potential to become a promising treatment by addressing multiple metabolic issues" associated with the non-alcoholic steatohepatitis disease, or NASH. Viking is up 8.3% in late morning trading. JPMORGAN SAYS BUY GM, SELL TESLA INTO EARNINGS: JPMorgan analyst Ryan Brinkman forecast lower than consensus Q2 earnings for Ford (F) and higher than consensus earnings for General Motors (GM). The analyst is also concerned about the potential for a "large loss and accompanying large cash outflow" at Tesla (TSLA) in Q2 to "make the bridge" to GAAP profitability and positive cash generation in the second half of the year. Brinkman maintained Overweight ratings on GM and Ford, with a preference for GM shares. He also kept his cautious Underweight rating on Tesla shares, seeing 44% downside to his $180 December 2018 price target.

General Motors outperforming Ford in China, says Piper Jaffray
While both would suffer in a trade war, it is clear that General Motors (GM) is outperforming Ford (F) in China, Piper Jaffray analyst Alexander Potter tells investors in a research note. The analyst views GM's China business as stable, with a growing presence in luxury. He thinks Cadillac represented 16.7% of GM's Q2 revenue in China, versus 13.6% in 2017, which should boost margins. Until its "new product blitz gains momentum, Ford's China business will likely continue bleeding," Potter contends. He notes the company's Ford's retail sales in China declined by 38% year-over-year in June. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on GM and a Neutral rating on Ford.

General Motors price target raised to $53 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Joseph Spak kept his Outperform rating on General Motors (GM) and nudged his price target to $53 from $52, saying the recent $2.25B investment by Softbank (SFTBF) adds validation to the company's GM Cruise robo-taxi offering plans. Aside from the validation, Spak notes that the investment "provides capital to reach scale commercialization, affords GM capital allocation flexibility, and unlocks GM share price value as Cruise around $7 per share."
