Kansas City Southern price target raised to $132 from $127 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Rick Paterson raised his price target on Kansas City Southern to $132 and kept his Buy rating. The analyst models a 3% volume growth for 2018, which is in-line with the reduced 3-4% outlook from the company in its earnings update on Friday, but adds that some of the intra-Mexico intermodal traffic may experience less discounting and higher margins than anticipated.

Kansas City Southern upgraded to Outperform on Mexican trade agreement at Cowen
As reported previously, Cowen analyst Jason Seidl upgraded Kansas City Southern to Outperform from Market Perform. The analyst cited the U.S.-Mexico trade agreement, noting that he views Kansas City as having the most exposure to Mexico. He said the shares appear poised to return to their pre-Trump multiple and he sees the company as well positioned to benefit from Mexican energy reform and chemical growth. Seidl raised his price target to $138 from $124 on Kansas City Southern shares.

Loop Capital analyst Rick Paterson raised his price target on Kansas City Southern to $140 and kept his Buy rating, citing yesterday's progress in finalizing the U.S.-Mexico bilateral trade agreement. The analyst notes that while there are still "a lot of things" that can go wrong in the discussions and there is a "tight timeframe" for the deal to be enacted before the new Mexican president takes office in December, the worst case for the company - "no NAFTA and 20% or more in tariffs" - is much less likely. Paterson further states that in spite of yesterday's 4.7% rise in the stock price, Kansas City Southern remains the cheapest railroad stock in its peer group.

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. OPCO UPGRADES TESLA TO OUTPERFORM: Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch upgraded Tesla (TSLA) to Outperform from Perform with a price target of $385 following Wednesday night's Q2 results. Gross margin performance on the Model 3 will carry the stock over the next 12-plus months, Rusch said. With higher volumes and slower spending, Tesla has "reached a critical inflection point in its development," the analyst added. He noted that despite some recent price pressure, Model S and X average selling prices have remained at relatively elevated levels. Rusch said he would not be surprised to see a similar scenario play out for the Model 3. SUNTRUST STARTS MAGNOLIA WITH A BUY: SunTrust analyst Neal Dingmann initiated Magnolia Oil & Gas (MGY) with a Buy rating and a price target of $18. The analyst noted that the company is a "unique E&P" with top-tier assets in the Eagle Ford and low leverage on its balance sheet. Dingmann is also positive on Magnolia's strong free cash flow and experience in transactions management. MORGAN STANLEY SAYS FERRARI SELLOFF A BUYING OPPORTUNITY: Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas upgraded Ferrari (RACE) to Equal Weight from Underweight, stating that the stock's 10% selloff presents an opportunity to increase exposure with the stock now reflecting a more balanced assessment of the risks to the 2022 EUR2B EBITDA target. He raised his price target on Ferrari shares to $120 from $110. BARCLAYS CUTS HANESBRANDS: Barclays analyst Chethan Mallela downgraded Hanesbrands (HBI) to Equal Weight and lowered his price target for the shares to $19 from $22. The analyst sees a lack of visibility into the second half of the year following the company's Q2 results. WENDY'S CUT TO NEUTRAL: Kalinowski Equity Research analyst Mark Kalinowski downgraded Wendy's to Neutral from Buy ahead of the Q2 report on August 7. Kalinowski' checks indicate July same-store sales growth is trending below the 1.5% level and were the worst checks since February 2012. As a result, the analyst lowered his Q3 system-wide North American same-store sales growth forecast to a new consensus low of 1.5 from 2.5%. Kalinowski believes McDonald's (MCD) and Burger King, owned by Restaurant Brands (QSR), could become more "assertive" on promotions and discounting, making it difficult for Wendy's to right the ship.

Also, Louis Camilleri has a reputation for strong business execution and value creation and Jonas sees reasons for shareholders to have confidence in him, the analyst tells investors.

As reported earlier, RBC Capital analyst Darko Mihelic upgraded Bank of Montreal to Outperform from Sector Perform and raised his price target to CAD 124 from CAD 120. The analyst cites expectations of strong earnings growth relative to BMO's peers thanks to rising revenues and cost controls, even though P&C exposure is relatively smaller. Mihelic still contends that the valuation of Bank of Montreal is "attractive" and its risk profile is "favorable" amid concerns over Canadian housing and other macro risks.

Stifel analyst David Ross upgraded Marten Transport to Hold with a $21 price target citing valuation following the recent pullback in the shares. Shares of Marten have fallen nearly 7% since the end of the second quarter, but its earnings came in better than expected, Ross tells investors in a research note. With his estimates going higher, the analyst sees limited downside from current share levels. Further, he believes the fall will be a strong freight season.

The analyst finds the stock's valuation as "undemanding" at current share levels. Further, he sees the potential for more inflows into cruise stocks for the balance of 2018 as comps get tougher across sectors like lodging, retail, and Macau, but "relatively easier" for Royal Caribbean.

The analyst sees a "significant disparity" between Royal Caribbean's valuation and fundamentals.

Cruise demand and pricing momentum continue, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Joseph Greff recently surveyed August pricing for cruise itineraries marketed in the U.S. for select Carnival (CCL), Royal Caribbean (RCL) and Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) brands. On a global basis, forward gross ticket prices remained strong for Royal and Norwegian, while Carnival prices rebounded sequentially, though continue to underperform, Greff tells investors in a research note. According to the survey, on a forward 12-month basis, average prices for Carnival brands Carnival, Princess, and Holland America were up 1.0%, down 4.9%, and down 1.2%, respectively. Royal brands Royal Caribbean and Celebrity were up 14% and up 8.9%, and Norwegian was up 6.8% year-over-year. In general, cruise demand and pricing momentum continue, Greff contends. The analyst likes shares of Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Line.

Carnival price target lowered to $71 at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Stephen Grambling lowered his price target on Carnival (CCL) to $71 from $73 and kept his Neutral rating as part of his broader research note on the leisure cruise sector. The analyst states that despite the company's Q2 earnings beat driven by strong close-in bookings across geographies, he expects higher fuel and FX headwinds to more than offset the company's raised net yield growth estimates. Grambling also raises his estimate of direct cruise cost growth to 1.5% in FY18 vs. Carnival's guidance of 1%. As part of his research note, the analyst also lowers his price target on Royal Caribbean Cruises (RCL) to $134 from $140 and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH) to $63 from $66 to reflect the risks around "fuel prices, inflation/deflation in other input costs or FX, exogenous events, and pricing power."
