GE Lighting converts Walmart shoppers to LED

GE Lighting (GE) has helped pave the way to shave 1.2 billion kWh of electricity use in consumer homes by converting Walmart (WMT) shoppers from traditional light bulbs to energy-efficient LEDs over the last two years. Not only has this shift supported Walmart's Project Gigaton, a Walmart supplier initiative aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions by one gigaton by 2030, the shift is also leaving a measured impact on consumer's energy expenses. LEDs use 70 to 90 percent less energy than traditional lighting options and last 15 to 25 times longer. GE Lighting encourages consumers to use October, Energy Action Month, as motivation to make the switch. To help, GE offers more than 100 energy-saving LED products at Walmart, including 36 ENERGY STAR LEDs, all $2 to $4 bulbs; ensuring consumers can make the switch to an ultra-efficient LED at every-day low prices.

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. GE UPGRADED AT RBC, WOLFE: RBC Capital analyst Deane Dray upgraded General Electric (GE) to Outperform from Sector Perform and raised his price target for the shares to $15 from $13. The analyst believes a floor has been put in the shares following news of Larry Culp being named Chairman and CEO. Additionally, GE was upgraded to Outperform from Peer Perform at Wolfe Research. DEUTSCHE SEES HEIGHTENED RISKS TO FACEBOOK ESTIMATES: After attending the first day of AdWeek, Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley sees heightened risk to the Q3, Q4 and 2019 consensus estimates for Facebook (FB). The analyst said he's starting to hear more cautious feedback and that Facebook seems on the defensive, particularly following last week's data breach disclosure. Walmsley, however, continues to view Facebook as attractively valued and kept a Buy rating on the shares with a $205 price target. JPMORGAN ADDS WEIGHT WATCHERS TO FOCUS LIST: JPMorgan analyst Christina Brathwaite added Weight Watchers (WTW) to her firm's America's Analyst Focus while keeping an Overweight rating on the shares with a $120 price target. The stock's 30% pullback from its peak on June 20 presents a "compelling entry point for investors who missed the stock's appreciation the first time around," Brathwaite said. Despite the post-earnings selloff, the analyst believes the Q2 print was actually indicative that Weight Watchers' growth story remains on track. Further, she believes the changes announced last week, including its new rewards program, as well as the company's Invite a Friend program, will help drive member recruitment and retention going forward. AMBEV DOUBLE DOWNGRADED BY UBS: UBS analyst Alan Alanis double downgraded Ambev (ABEV) to Sell from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to R$17 from R$23. AmBev trades at a 25% higher valuation than parent company AB InBev (BUD), which is unwarranted, Alanis believes. He believes Ambev shares at current levels are more than pricing in the company's favorable outlook. Further, he expects consensus estimates to come down due to a tougher competitive environment, a "tepid" Brazilian economic recovery and currency headwinds. DEUTSCHE DOWNGRADES METAL STOCKS: Deutsche Bank analyst Jeremy Kliewer downgraded Century Aluminum to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $15 from $20, stating that Century's margins could remain pressured for longer due to alumina supply disruptions. Meanwhile, Deutsche's Chris Terry downgraded Reliance Steel (RS) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $90 from $100, and downgraded U.S. Steel (X) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $35 from $47. The analyst said his view on the steel sector is "moderating post peak pricing." Most positive data points and catalysts have now largely played out, Terry believes.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Discover (DFS) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Richard Shane saying the company appears on track to execute a "soft landing" as loan growth stabilizes. 2. At Home Group (HOME) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Matthew Fassler saying recent sales misses, tariff concerns, and macro data have created investor concerns and a "steep discount" in the shares relative to other growth retailers. 3. Nestle (NSRGY) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Martin Deboo saying he's more bullish on the new CEO and the shares into the second half of the year. 4. Urban Outfitters (URBN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley FBR with analyst Susan Anderson saying she expects high consumer confidence to support strong same-store-sales for Urban and she views the shares as undervalued. 5. General Electric (GE) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Deane Dray saying he believes a floor has been put in the shares following news of Larry Culp being named Chairman and CEO.

GE management change bigger than $23B impairment, says Citi
Yesterday's announcement of Larry Culp being named Chairman and CEO is a "new beginning" for General Electric, Citi analyst Andrew Kaplowitz tells investors in a research note. The analyst says that while the Power business is "dramatically worse" than he thought, a "proven outside leader" can immediately accelerate the pace of change and execution. Management change is bigger and more forward looking than the $23B non-cash impairment the company will take on its Power business, Kaplowitz contends. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on General Electric.

Walmart merchandise news negative for GameStop, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Curtis Nagle notes that Walmart (WMT) announced that it is rolling out a dedicated section of pop culture merchandise to over 3,500 stores starting the week of October 15th, which will include an exclusive relationship with Loot Crate and merchandise from Funko (FNKO), McFarlane Toys and CultureFly. This follows a successful partnership with Target (TGT) and Funko last Holiday, he adds. The analyst views this as a negative for GameStop (GME) given that collectibles are the only category that is consistently growing for the company. Furthermore, Nagle was already concerned over how much collectibles distribution could move into mass channels, as collectibles already show signs of deceleration. Nagle reiterates an Underperform rating and $10 price target on GameStop shares.

Walmart, Kroger to see margin pain from 'war of attrition,' says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman said food retail disruption is accelerating as both grocers and consumers head online and he projects that industry EBIT margins, which are "already slim at 3%," could shrink by nearly a third by 2023. He is incrementally more cautious on Kroger (KR) and has "meaningfully" lowered his EBIT and EPS forecasts, stating that while the company and Walmart (WMT) can both take share, "margin pain" is likely in the process of their "war of attrition" in grocery with Amazon (AMZN), each other and a number of additional competitors. Consensus estimates expect stable margins at Kroger and Walmart, which appears challenging to Gutman, he tells investors. The analyst keeps Equal Weight ratings on both traditional retailers and an Overweight rating on Amazon, arguing that it should be able to leverage Prime and its fast-growing high-margin businesses to invest more heavily while still driving higher profitability.

Hostess Brands initiated with a Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Alexis Borden started Hostess Brands (TWNK) with a Neutral rating and $13 price target. The analyst sees a "host of questions" over Hostess' near-to-medium term outlook due to the recent revenue headwinds from lost Walmart (WMT) display space, heightened cost inflation pressures and continued "sluggish" Sweet Baked Goods category growth. As such, Borden is cautious on the shares near-term.

Walmart Q3 comps trending above consens, says at Cleveland Research
Cleveland Research analyst Scott Bender's checks indicate sales trends remain strong for Walmart's Q3-to-date and appear to be trending above consensus expectations with fairly steady trends in grocery despite tough comps. The analyst is modeling Q3 US comp store sales of up 3.5%-4%, versus consensus of up 2.8%.
