United Technologies buys analytics firm Predikto, Dow Jones says

United Technologies has acquired Predikto, "a software platform that automates much of the work involved in predicting industrial equipment failure, including complex data integration and algorithm development," says Dow Jones. Predikto is an analytics firm that can help the conglomerate "anticipate when jet engines and other industrial machinery might fail," added Dow Jones.

General Electric downgraded to Hold at Argus on disappointing Q2
As reported earlier, Argus analyst John Eade downgraded General Electric to Hold from Buy, saying that despite his expectations of a turnaround, Q2 results were a "step in the opposite direction" suggesting the company will struggle to meet its FY18 guidance. Eade also lowers his FY18 EPS forecast to 97c from $1.03, adding that GE will need to show at least two quarter of progress before he would reconsider his rating. The analyst further states that while he expects the company to look different in 2-4 years, the outlook for its its core business segments - Power and Renewable Energy - is bleak, saying he prefers other large industrials Such as Illinois Tool Works (ITW), United Technologies (UTX) and Boeing (BA) over General Electric.

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. STIFEL SAYS SELL PAPA JOHN'S: Stifel analyst Chris O'Cull downgraded Papa John's (PZZA) to Sell from Hold and cut his price target for the shares to $38 from $50. The outlook for Papa John's is "growing dimmer" after recent media reports indicated a "fraternal corporate culture," O'Cull told investors. The reports reinforce the consumer perception that Papa John's is not a trusted brand, the analyst added. His recent channel checks indicate the company's domestic same-restaurant-sales are running down in the mid-teens since last week's media report about the company's founder using a racial slur. Papa John's is in a "precarious position," as it needs a "strategic savior" but is struggling to find one "willing to underwrite a transaction given the brand damage," O'Cull contended. Papa John's shares are down 7% in midday trading BTIG SAYS BUY SPOTIFY: BTIG analyst Rich Greenfield initiated Spotify (SPOT) with a Buy rating and a price target of $230, saying that awaiting a better entry on the stock price "has not worked." The analyst contended that the company will be a "long-term winner" in the subscription music category that remains in its infancy and will "grow significantly for years to come." DEUTSCHE RAISES QUALCOMM TARGET TO $60: Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Seymore raised his price target for Qualcomm (QCOM) shares to $60 from $55 after concluding that removal of the uncertainty from the NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) deal likely leads to incremental upside in either scenario. The analyst said he has no way of assigning probabilities of deal approval given the politically charged nature of the pending regulatory ruling from China's State Administration for Market Regulation. Seymore kept Hold ratings on both Qualcomm and NXP. ARGUS CUTS GE TO HOLD: Argus analyst John Eade downgraded General Electric (GE) to Hold from Buy, saying that despite his expectations of a turnaround, Q2 results were a "step in the opposite direction" suggesting the company will struggle to meet its FY18 guidance. Eade lowered his FY18 EPS forecast to 97c from $1.03, adding that GE will need to show at least two quarter of progress before he would reconsider his rating. The analyst prefers other large industrials such as Illinois Tool Works (ITW), United Technologies (UTX) and Boeing (BA) over General Electric, he added.

United Technologies offered 'plenty' to stay positive, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Deane Dray writes that in his investor meetings with United Technologies, the company offered "plenty of reason" to stay positive on the stock. Specifically, the analyst cites the management's confidence in concluding the Rockwell Collins acquisition in September as well as the progress in the geared turbofan, or GTF, development. Dray adds that he was also surprised with the management's candid discussions of the pros/cons of a three-way portfolio break-up.
