Arthur J. Gallagher initiated with an Outperform at Credit Suisse

Credit Suisse analyst Michael Zaremski started Arthur J. Gallagher with an Outperform rating and $84 price target. Between ongoing back-office expense efficiency initiatives, a strong M&A pipeline, his view that P&C pricing will remain fairly stable, an increasing talent recruitment pipeline, and upside optionality once the company amasses enough data/scale overseas to create its own higher-margin facilities, the analyst sees clear skies for low-double-digit earnings growth in the years to come.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Akamai (AKAM) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan, with analyst Sterling Auty saying management is embracing the right strategy proposed by activist investor Elliot Management by focusing on margin improvement, cybersecurity, and capital return. 2. Arthur J. Gallagher (AJG) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at William Blair, with analyst Adam Klauber saying an inflection point in funding mix should be a catalyst for the shares. 3. Williams (WMB) and Williams Partners (WPZ) were upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan. 4. 58.com (WUBA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Benchmark, with analyst Fawne Jiang citing its strong operating leverage, which is leading to "robust" earnings growth. 5. Kohl's (KSS) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen, with analyst Oliver Chen saying he likes its improving fundamentals, modest valuation and sees mixed sentiment on the stock.

Arthur J. Gallagher initiated with a Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Yaron Knar initiated Arthur J. Gallagher with a Buy and $81price target telling investors he expects organic growth to remain stable in the 4% range through 2020, combined with further efficiency measures, should continue to drive margin expansion of roughly 50bps per year despite investments in the platform and talent. Knar believes Arthur J. Gallagher shares are undervalued given consistent utilization of free cash flow to supplement organic growth with acquired revenues.

Boeing, Tesla, Nvidia make Morgan Stanley 'key man risk' list
Morgan Stanley equity strategist Mark Savino noted that about 12% of CEO jobs among S&P 500 companies turned over in 2017, noting that this was the highest level of CEO departures since before the financial crisis. The 59 stocks of S&P 500 companies that had CEOs depart in 2017 underperformed the market by 11% over the next 12 months, or since the departure for instances that were less than 12 months ago, noted Savino. In cooperation with the firm's U.S. analysts, Savino and his team identified the companies in each sector they believe face the greatest level of "key man risk," which includes: Boeing (BA), Tesla (TSLA), ADT Inc. (ADT), Moody's (MCO), TransUnion (TRU), Arista Networks (ANET), Church & Dwight (CHD), Coca-Cola (KO), Monster Beverage (MNST), Coupa Software (COUP), Salesforce (CRM), FireEye (FEYE), MongoDB (MDB), Microsoft (MSFT), New Relic (NEWR), XPO Logistics (XPO), Hilton (HLT), Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Best Buy (BBY), Ulta (ULTA), Aflac (AFL), Athene Holding (ATH), Lincoln National (LNC), Arthur J. Gallagher (AJG), Chubb (CB), Amazon.com (AMZN), Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Facebook (FB), Alphabet (GOOGL), Apple (AAPL), Terex (TEX), Cleveland-Cliffs (CLF), Freeport McMoRan (FCX), FleetCor (FLT), Global Payments (GPN), Square (SQ), Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ), Cheesecake Factory (CAKE), Broadcom (AVGO), Nvidia (NVDA), Chegg (CHGG), DXC Technology (DXC), Medidata (MDSO), Pluralsight (PS), RealPage (RP), Shopify (SHOP) and T-Mobile (TMUS).
