Neutral
Caterpillar Q2 results good, but not good enough, says Baird
Baird analyst Mig Dobre said Q2 results for Caterpillar featured solid incremental margins, robust orders, a raise in material operating guidance, and a new $10B share repurchase authorization. The analyst noted the shares sold off as investors feared peak earnings in 2019 along with the tariffs/trade war. Tarantino said the valuation contraction will likely provide a better opportunity to get more aggressive on the shares, but he maintained his Neutral rating and $155 price target on Caterpillar.

Caterpillar price target lowered to $185 from $195 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Joel Tiss lowered his price target on Caterpillar to $185 after its Q2 results while also rolling out his model to 2020 with a 12.5-times forward earnings multiple - a "conservative" outlook relative to its historical peak valuation range of 12-14-times. Tiss is also keeping his Outperform rating on Caterpillar, noting that investors are likely underappreciating its progress on profitability and diversification with little evidence that any of the company's markets are positioned for a correction.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. CBS (CBS) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen with analyst Doug Creutz saying the combination of the legal fight with National Amusements, the potential for a recombination with Viacom (VIAB) and the allegations of sexual harassment against CEO Les Moonves create "too many unquantifiable variables." 2. Caterpillar (CAT) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays with analyst Adam Seiden saying the company's largest end-markets are no longer at trough. Further, he believes Caterpillar's second half of 2018 price initiatives, directed towards offsetting supply chain and materials cost increases, will limit its ability to expand margins. 3. WisdomTree (WETF) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst William Katz saying he believes WisdomTree's price-to-earnings multiple can further contract amid mixed flow dynamics and flat earnings growth prospects out to 2020. 4. Adient (ADNT) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley. 5. Tupperware Brands (TUP) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Argus with analyst Deborah Ciervo citing the company's disappointing Q2 revenue and reduced outlook for FY18. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

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. JEFFERIES UPS RATING, TARGET FOR CHIPOTLE: Jefferies analyst Andy Barish upgraded Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $550 from $400. Barish believes Chipotle is one of the better positioned companies to benefit from the ongoing shift to digital/off-premise. The company's operations are now poised to again handle increased volume and throughput, the analyst contended. Further, he believes new management's plans are "credible" and should help drive results in 2019 and beyond. The analyst called the stock a top mid-cap pick. NOMURA UPGRADES TWITTER TO NEUTRAL: Nomura Instinet analyst Mark Kelley upgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Neutral from Reduce with an unchanged price target of $31. After selling off 27% since the Q2 earnings report on July 27, expectations have been appropriately reset, Kelley told investors. The analyst believes Twitter's investments to clean up the platform will prove a longer term positive and lead to a more engaged user base. BARCLAYS PREFERS DEERE TO CATERPILLAR: Barclays analyst Adam Seiden downgraded Caterpillar (CAT) to Equal Weight from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $155 from $170. The company's largest end-markets are no longer at trough, and the analyst believes Caterpillar's second half of 2018 price initiatives, directed towards offsetting supply chain and materials cost increases, will limit its ability to expand margins. The analyst prefers shares of Deere (DE) and CNH Industrial (CNH), which he says are at similar valuations but are earlier in their market cycles. CITI SAYS SELL WISDOMTREE: Citi analyst William Katz placed a low probability on Franklin Resources (BEN) acquiring WisdomTree (WETF), and downgraded WisdomTree to Sell, lowering his price target for the shares to $7 from $10. The analyst downgraded the shares to Neutral on July 13. Katz believes WisdomTree's price-to-earnings multiple can further contract amid mixed flow dynamics and flat earnings growth prospects out to 2020. JPMORGAN SAYS GOPRO MAY SEE SHORT SQUEEZE: JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster believes "muted" expectations and elevated short-interest could position GoPro (GPRO) shares for a "short squeeze" rally after the company's Q2 results. The analyst expects the company to post an in-line quarter. GoPro must entice existing users to upgrade to a new flagship camera expected to be released in early Q4, and convert new users for a product category that "feels a bit long in the tooth now," Coster said. He lowered his price target for GoPro shares to $7 from $8 and kept a Neutral rating on GoPro.
