United's Kirby sees average airfares improving, Bloomberg reports

As U.S. rivals offer fewer bargain-basement ticket prices, United Continental is seeing improved average airfares, according to Bloomberg, citing an interview with the company's President Scott Kirby. "It's not really that fares have gone up much, it's that the $25, $30 fares that were prevalent a year ago are much more narrow today,'' the chief executive said. According to Kirby, the improvement is helping the airline weather higher fuel costs, the report noted. Reference Link

United Continental price target raised to $106 from $96 at Buckingham
Buckingham analyst Daniel McKenzie raised his price target on United Continental to $106 and kept his Buy rating after its better than expected Q2 unit revenue and Q3 outlook. The analyst says the management "succinctly articulated a "no-excuses" EPS goal of $11-$13 in 2020", adding that even in the event of an economic downturn, the airline has "plenty of capacity flexibility". McKenzie further notes that United Continental's raised earnings guidance "adds credibility" to the business plan, stating he is confident that the airline can continue executing on top-line growth, with industry supply up just 2.9% and demand on the rise.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Square (SQ) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse WITH analyst Paul Condra saying he believes its growing product eco-system is increasing its ability to penetrate larger merchants, positive data points on Cash-App adoption validate Square's two-sided platform strategy to grow both merchant and consumer use-cases, and growth investing should support strong revenue trends driving upside to revenue forecasts in the out-years. 2. Discovery (DISCA) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Drew Borst saying Discovery's acquisition of Scripps creates "meaningful" cost and revenue synergy opportunities. 3. Grainger (GWW) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at UBS with analyst Steven Winoker saying the company's strategic initiatives, including its pricing reset and e-commerce platform development, reposition it to gain market share through 2019. 4. Hilton (HLT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Berenberg. 5. United Continental (UAL) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Southwest would be good strategic fit for Berkshire, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Kai Pan noted that Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) has shifted tone in recent years and become a top three shareholder of the "Big Four" U.S. airlines, including Southwest (LUV). Media reports from Forbes, CNN and others have discussed a possible acquisition by Berkshire of the airline, added Pan, who said he has no knowledge of any M&A discussions and noted that the airlines have not commented. Given that background, he analyzed a theoretical acquisition and came to the conclusion that Southwest could be a strategic fit for Berkshire and the advantages could also be compelling for the airline. Pan estimates Berkshire could pay a 20-40% premium, or $70-80 per share for Southwest, in such a hypothetical takeover situation, in which he also thinks Berkshire would divest its current holdings in American Airlines (AAL), Delta (DAL) and United Continental (UAL). Pan has an Overweight rating and $67 price target on Southwest shares.
