Opening interest in Infinera calls ahead of earnings

Opening interest in Infinera calls ahead of earnings. The stock up 14c to $8.68 and Aug 10th 9 calls trade across the exchanges for 49 and 50c. 2K changed hands against 263 open interest. The company is due to report after the closing bell and the stock, which is heavily shorted (short to float ratio of more than 10%), is a big earnings mover: the average daily post earnings move over the previous three quarters is 25.7%.

Infinera upgraded to Outperform at Northland on added Coriant opportunity
As reported earlier, Northland analyst Tim Savageaux upgraded Infinera to Outperform from Market Perform with a $12 price target, saying the calculus of his March downgrade changes with the acquisition of Coriant, giving the company a double-digit market share in 100G+ optical systems. The analyst also sees the deal price as "attractive" at 0.6-times revenue and the model as "viable" even with conservative synergy assumptions and Infinera's prior acquisition integration challenges.

Positives of Infinera deal 'meaningfully' outweigh risks, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Dmitry Netis believes the positives of Infinera's (INFN) acquisition of Coriant "meaningfully" outweigh the risks. If nothing else, the deal takes out a "nonsensical price disrupter from the market," Netis tells investors in a research note. The deal could be also very accretive, if management can execute, which is "no slam dunk," the analyst adds. His first cut pro forma model yields pro forma earnings per share of 78c by 2020 and $1.25 by 2021. Using a 15 times multiple on $1.25 in EPS in 2021, discounted back three years at 15%, yields a fair value of Infinera shares in the low- to mid-teens, Netis writes. He keeps an Outperform rating on Infinera. He also believes Ciena (CIEN) will trade up on the news while Acacia Communications (ACIA) may be pressured given customer consolidation, potential for greater discounting through longer-term price contracts, and risks of vertical integration by Infinera.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Mosaic (MOS) double upgraded to Buy from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Steve Byrne saying he believes 2018 will mark a bottom in global phosphate utilization rates and now believes there is more upside risk to consensus estimates as the cycle improves. 2. Live Nation (LYV) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Brandon Ross saying he is now more convinced that the company will outperform expectations amid inflecting growth rate with an added possibility of M&A. 3. Infinera (INFN) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Northland with analyst Tim Savageaux saying the calculus of his March downgrade changes with the acquisition of Coriant, giving the company a double-digit market share in 100G+ optical systems. 4. Baker Hughes (BHGE) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Ken Sill saying the EPS miss was due to higher interest expense and taxes, as well as an asset charge that is "hopefully non-recurring." 5. Werner (WERN) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ken Hoexter saying Q2 freight demand in One way Truckload was much stronger than normal and revenue per load mile was up 13.3% year-over-year, the strongest level in more than 20 years.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Whirlpool (WHR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Longbow with analyst David MacGregor calling its quarter "disappointing across most dimensions of the business." 2. Gogo (GOGO) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Ric Prentiss saying he expects several more quarters of "turbulence" given potential dilution/rollover risks from 2020 bond convertible bond maturities, churn pressures, continued negative free cash flow, and the airline industry shift to directed pricing. 3. Marriott (MAR) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Thomas Allen saying he is more bullish on the Gaming REITs, given their attractive, dependable yields, and has become more cautious on Lodging, he tells investors. 4. Infinera (INFN) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Raymond James. 5. Hasbro (HAS) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Monness Crespi.
