Emerson to buy General Electric Intelligent Platforms unit, terms not disclosed

Emerson (EMR) announced it has agreed to acquire Intelligent Platforms, a division of General Electric (GE). Intelligent Platforms' programmable logic controller, or PLC, technologies will enable Emerson, a leader in automation for process and industrial applications, to provide its customers broader control and management of their operations. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition expands opportunities for Emerson in machine control and discrete applications across process industries and target hybrid markets, such as metals & mining, life sciences, food & beverage and packaging. By interfacing Intelligent Platforms' PLC technology with Emerson's leading distributed control systems, customers will be able to connect "islands of automation" within the plant to further enhance operational performance, safety and reliability. The acquisition is expected to close in the first half of fiscal 2019, subject to regulatory approvals, GE's consultation with employee representatives where required and other customary closing conditions.

Emerson has differentiated relative organic growth and fundamental earnings upside coupled with a "still robust" balance sheet, Tusa tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.

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. BAIRD UPGRADES CATERPILLAR TO OUTPERFORM: Baird analyst Mig Dobre upgraded Caterpillar (CAT) to Outperform from Neutral. The analyst believes demand growth should continue into 2019. While some markets like China are close to peak, most of its demand is still at or below mid-cycle levels, said Dobre, who raised his price target to $191 from $155 on Caterpillar shares. Caterpiller is up 1.5% in late morning trading. PIPER CUTS STITCH FIX TO NEUTRAL: Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy downgraded Stitch Fix (SFIX) to Neutral while raising her price target for the shares to $43 from $29. The analyst cited valuation for the downgrade. With shares nearing $50, market expectations do not provide any margin of error, Murphy said. She believes the "smallest hint" of pressure could be a significant negative catalyst for the stock. Further, the analyst notes that Amazon's (AMZN) Prime Wardrobe is now advertising in key NFL slots and that the company is testing a personalized recommendation service for certain categories. In late morning trading, Stitch Fix is lower by over 13%. COWEN CUTS SKECHERS TO MARKET PERFORM: Cowen analyst John Kernan downgraded Skechers (SKX) to Market Perform from Outperform citing growing inventory levels, particularly as foreign exchange headwinds in key markets build. He also believes consensus forecasts for operating expansion are too optimistic. Kernan lowered his price target to $28 from $32 on Skechers shares, which are down 4.7% in late morning trading. JPMORGAN CUTS GE'S PRICE TARGET: JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa lowered his price target for General Electric (GE) to $10 from $11 and kept an Underweight rating on the shares. The impact on "asset value" from a failure at GE's U.S. H-frame launch customer, while tough to estimate, represents a negative development for a company that has little wiggle room for more "shoes to drop," Tusa said. MORGAN STANLEY POSITIVE ON APPLE IPHONE DUAL-SIM ADDITION: In EMEA and Asia, smartphones with dual-SIM capabilities have become the status quo, noted Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty, who believes that Apple adding dual-SIM to the new iPhones is an underappreciated feature with the potential to drive upside to shipments in FY19. Huberty kept an Overweight rating and $247 price target on Apple shares.

General Electric price target lowered to $13 from $15 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Deane Dray lowered his price target on General Electric to $13, reflecting the 9% downdraft in its stock price over the past two weeks. The analyst says the decline suggests that the company has yet to reach a point where bad news does not make the stock decline, arguing that the bottom has not yet been reached. In light of GE's "radio silence" ahead of its earnings, Dray adds that his investment focus remains around the company's negatives. Dray states that these now include the "new disclosures of defective gas turbine fan blades" and the prospects for new charges associated with the issue. The analyst also cites the "ongoing SEC and DoJ investigations, potential dividend cut, and price-cost pressures compounded by US-China tariffs and the trade war fallout".

GE 'negative surprise' raises questions about serious issues, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa said the timing and format of GE's (GE) CEO change announcement is a negative surprise that raises questions as to whether there are "serious issues at play." While the selection of ex-Danaher (DHR) CEO Larry Culp is a positive for investor confidence and the change brings the company a step closer to a real reset, the details on how potentially bad things actually are have not been shared and Tusa sees a dividend cut and potential equity raise as likely, he tells investors. The analyst maintains a $10 price target and Underweight rating on GE shares, which are up 97c, or 8.5%, to $12.26 in afternoon trading.
