KKR Real Estate Finance upgraded to Outperform with $22 target at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Donald Fandetti upgraded KKR Real Estate Finance (KREF) to Outperform from Market Perform and raised his price target for the shares to $22 from $20. The company is gaining traction through leveraging KKR (KKR) for both originations and unique financing vehicles, Fandetti tells investors in a research note. Further, he sees multiple expansion for the commercial mortgage REITs as "equity markets catch up with spread tightening in the debt markets." In addition, lending markets are "healthy" despite the rise in 10-year U.S. Treasury yields, Fandetti contends.

Morgan Stanley says Blackstone valuation gap with KKR unjustified
With KKR (KKR) up 41% in the last twelve months, the shares of Blackstone (BX) are now trading at their lowest relative valuation to the former, which Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys said he views as unjustified. He attributes a mix of C-corp conversion, CRSP index inclusion, and strong asset gathering and fee growth at KKR for the strength, but also believes Blackstone's upcoming investor day on September 21 could be a catalyst to fix the "valuation disconnect." While he doesn't expect a C-corp conversion announcement in the near-term, Cyprys wouldn't be surprised to see Blackstone follow KKR's lead and shift toward a cash earnings approach from reporting on a more volatile mark to market basis, he tells investors. The analyst, who could see a $50 valuation for Blackstone if the stock re-rates to its historical premium to KKR, keeps an Overweight rating and $42 price target on Blackstone shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Vipshop (VIPS) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Alex Yao saying as the "tough competitive environment and harder-than-expected synergy generation," Vipshop is likely to adjust its strategy to re-focus on core off-season apparel distribution and prioritize profitability over sales growth. 2. International Paper (IP) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs while WestRock (WRK) was downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy. 3. Clorox (CLX), Church & Dwight (CHD), and Kimberly-Clark (KMB) were downgraded to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank. 4. Sherwin-Williams (SHW) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst P.J. Juvekar saying "tough" market comments from companies like H.B. Fuller (FUL), PPG (PPG) and RPM (RPL) suggest that coatings companies are likely to be challenged by rising raw materials costs and slowing growth in key end markets, including China. 5. KKR (KKR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Michael Carrier citing valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
