American Express recommends shareholders reject Baker Mills 'mini-tender' offer

American Express Company announced that it has received notification of an unsolicited "mini-tender" offer by Baker Mills to purchase up to 45,000 shares, or approximately 0.005%, of the outstanding common stock of the company as of July 18, 2018, at a price of $82.00 per share. Baker Mills' offer price is 20.41% less than the $103.03 closing price per share of the company's common stock on August 17, 2018, the last trading day before the mini-tender offer commenced. American Express does not endorse Baker Mills' mini-tender offer and recommends that the company's shareholders do not tender their shares in response to the offer because the offer is at a price significantly below the current market price for the company's shares and subject to several conditions. The company also recommends that any shareholders who have tendered shares to Baker Mills withdraw those shares by providing the notice described in the offering documentation before the expiration of the offer, which is currently scheduled for 5:00 p.m. New York City time on September 18, 2018. American Express is not associated in any way with Baker Mills, its mini-tender offer or the mini-tender offer documentation. American Express urges its shareholders to obtain current market quotations for their shares, review the conditions to Baker Mills' mini-tender offer, consult with their brokers or financial advisors and exercise caution with respect to Baker Mills' mini-tender offer.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. American Express (AXP) upgraded to Buy from Hold at DZ Bank. 2. Duke Energy (DUK) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi with analyst Praful Mehta saying Duke has dealt with his primary concern about its credit following tax reform with its recent deals. 3. Anixter (AXE) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Longbow with analyst Shawn Harrison citing checks which showed that North American enterprise spending accelerated as the second quarter progressed while industrial spending grew in the high-single to low double digits. 4. RLI Corp. (RLI) upgraded to Sector Perform from Underperform at RBC Capital with analyst Mark Dwelle saying the company has "resolved reserve and margin concerns" that previously drove his negative view, with the re-emergence of growth placing its earnings and return on equity on a more "favorable track." 5. Beacon Roofing (BECN) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens with analyst Trey Grooms pointing out that his industry checks show distributors have been able to make up some lost ground over the busier selling months and noting that roofing manufacturers have pushed through three separate price increases year-to-date and plan for another in the August/September time frame. This list is just a portion of The Fly's analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

American Express selloff on WSJ article 'probably overdone,' says Keefe Bruyette
Keefe Bruyette analyst Sanjay Sakhrani says the selloff today in shares of American Express is "probably overdone." The analyst has an Outperform rating on the stock with a $125 price target. The Wall Street Journal this morning reported that American Express recruited business clients, mostly small and mid-size businesses, with low currency-conversion rates before raising their prices without notifying customers. The stock in morning trading is down 3%, or $3.11, to $100.74.

GreenSky price target lowered to $30 from $35 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey lowered his price target on GreenSky (GSKY) to $30 after its Q2 earnings, saying that while the company offers strong volume growth and good profitability trends, competitive concerns and unit economics uncertainty weighed on the stock after the results. Jeffrey keeps his Buy rating on GreenSky and recommends that investors use yesterday's weakness as a buying opportunity, with a positive view on the company's gross margin expansion and its strategic alliance with American Express (AXP).
