Agriculture has faster rebound potential than rest of materials, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Mark Connelly noted that the entire materials sector, including agriculture inputs, has been pressured by the escalation of trade tension. However, he thinks the ag sector has the potential for a faster rebound given his view that food price inflation is "among the most politically dangerous issues that government's face" and the fact that China cannot fill its soybeans needs without U.S. imports. Ag stocks Connelly mentions include Nutrien (NTR), Mosaic (MOS), FMC Corporation (FMC), DowDuPont (DWDP), CF Industries (CF), Intrepid Potash (IPI) and Compass Minerals (CMP).

Nomura Instinet downgrades Westlake Chemical ahead of Q2 results
Nomura Instinet analyst Aleksey Yefremov downgraded Westlake Chemical (WLK) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $120 from $125. The analyst expects softer demand to weigh on cyclical stocks and reduced his estimates for seven names in the Americas Chemicals space. He sees more challenging outlooks for the second half of 2018 compared to the first half due to easing demand in certain commodities/materials, inflation in raw materials and other costs, and less favorable currency. Yefremov now sees Westlake's risk/reward as more balanced given his more cautious stance on U.S. caustic soda prices, especially in the near term. The analyst likes DowDuPont (DWDP) and FMC Corporation (FMC) the most among his Buy-rated names.

FMC pullback is a 'buying opportunity', says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Chris Kapsch says the pullback in FMC stock after its Q2 earnings represents a buying opportunity. The analyst notes that FMC's reaffirmation in its core Agriculture Solutions sales growth expectations of about 9% in 2018 is "quite impressive considering the global Crop Protection market's growth may reach just 1-3% this year". Kapsch lowers his FY18 EPS view to $6.05 from $6.10, but keeps his Buy rating and $119 price target on FMC.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. HD Supply (HDS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Keith Hughes saying the current valuation on the stock is too low at 10.7-times enterprise value to EBITDA, with his new price target taking that valuation to the upper middle of the distribution group range. 2. Viacom (VIAB) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Needham with analyst Laura Martin saying the stock's forward PE valuation at 8.2-times is 15%-30% below peers mainly due to Paramount's losses. 3. Akamai (AKAM) upgraded to Sector Weight from Underweight at KeyBanc with analyst Brandon Nispel saying Akamai's ability to expand margins is greater than he anticipated and that fears surrounding growth are "unlikely to come to fruition near term." 4. Aon plc (AON) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs while Willis Towers Watson (WLTW) was upgraded to Neutral from Sell. 5. Exxon Mobil (XOM) upgraded to Buy from Reduce at HSBC.

Aon plc initiated with a Neutral at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Michael Zaremski started Aon plc with a Neutral rating and $154 price target. The analyst's positive view of the insurance brokerage space driven by increasing pricing power, a stable positive-territory P&C pricing outlook, demand for consulting services and an incremental investment income tailwind leads him to forecast Aon posting 10%-11% EPS growth for the foreseeable future. However, despite the positive backdrop, his EPS estimates still fall slightly below the consensus forecasts.

JPMorgan mobile launch a catalyst for industry consolidation, says Deutsche
Deutsche Bank analyst Brian Bedell believes JPMorgan's (JPM) reported rollout of online trading to its 47M customers next week should be a catalyst for online broker industry consolidation. The analyst believes the news supports his TD Ameritrade (AMTD), E-Trade (ETFC) merger scenario thesis. He points out that his model already includes "substantial" trade price compression.

JPMorgan mobile trading platform 'another salvo' on online brokers, says Citi
JPMorgan's (JPM) reported zero cost mobile trading service to be launched next week is "another salvo" in the war on broker dealers' fundamentals, Citi analyst William Katz tells investors in a research note. JPMorgan's move further underscores the commoditization risk to pricing across the retail broker dealer complex, particularly online brokers, the analyst adds. Further, he believes the new product adds an additional degree of difficulty to pricing a potential E-Trade (ETFC) acquisition or other retail broker deals. The analyst's work suggests negative 3% and negative 1% earnings risk to TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and Charles Schwab (SCHW), respectively. However, Katz believes much of the negativity is already priced into Ameritrade following yesterday's selloff. For Schwab, he believes continued pressure on Investor Services presents further downside risk in the stock from here.

Jefferies says JPMorgan service could impact discount broker new account growth
Following news that JPMorgan (JPM) will soon be offering a digital brokerage service that offers 100 free trades, Jefferies analyst Daniel Fannon said he does not view this as much a threat to existing clients at TD Ameritrade (AMTD), E-Trade (ETFC) or Charles Schwab (SCHW), but he does think it may have an impact on new account growth over time. He thinks TD Ameritrade and E-Trade will take a "wait and see approach" and that Schwab is most likely to be looked to for a competitor response. Both TD Ameritrade and E-Trade are materially more dependent on trading as a percent of total revenue than Charles Schwab, added Fannon.

Wells Fargo's next few earnings reports likely to be 'choppy,' says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Chris Kotowski maintained a Perform rating on Wells Fargo (WFC) after recent meetings with CFO John Shrewsberry. In a research note to investors, Kotowski says there was nothing that shakes his view that the next few quarterly earnings reports are likely to still be "choppy," and notes that Shewsberry "readily acknowledged" that there was much work to be done to get the consent order lifted. At the same time, the analyst contends that shares are not trading at much of a discount versus other high performing banks like JPMorgan (JPM) and PNC (PNC) and says he favors companies that have lower but rising ROTCEs that are trading near TBV, especially Citi (C), CIT (CIT) and Goldman (GS).

As previously reported, Stephens analyst Farha Aslam upgraded Andersons to Overweight from Equal Weight, citing her view that the company is well positioned to benefit from tight global supplies of wheat given global trade disruptions. She also contends that fertilizer earnings should benefit from rising prices. Aslam raised her price target on Andersons shares to $44 from $40.

BMO Capital analyst Kenneth Zaslow raised his price target on Andersons after a Q4 earnings beat that reflected a rebound in grain and ethanol performance. The outlook for FY18 is also positive on improving grain business from recovery in Lansing and better ethanol, though accounting changes and higher tank car expenses are set to pressure rail, the analyst contends. Zaslow keeps his Market Perform rating on Andersons while the company undergoes an "operational evolution".
