General Electric initiated with a Neutral at Credit Suisse

Credit Suisse analyst John Walsh initiated General Electric with a Neutral rating and $14 price target, telling investors in a research note that new CEO Larry Culp continues to simplify GE and says Aviation, the largest source of future earnings, continues to hold margin despite the LEAP ramp. However, Walsh notes that there is no easy fix for Power, as natural gas power markets are "fundamentally challenged."

Outperform
GE shares worth $15-$17 without Power, extra $4 with, says William Blair
The appointment of new CEO Larry Culp and likely write-down of $23B of GE Power goodwill is likely to be the final of three chapters in General Electric's transformation announcements, William Blair analyst Nicholas Heymann tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes Culp's "exceptional" reputation and performance contract tied to GE's share appreciation, along with a final Power goodwill write-down, is likely to shift investors' focus to value GE based on its potential sum-of-the-parts valuation from the recent focus on near-term adjusted earnings, free cash flow generation, and dividend sustainability. Assuming no value for GE Power, Heymann estimates that GE's sum-of-the-parts valuation currently could be about 7%-23% above the current share price, or approximately $14.60-$16.78 per share. If GE Power were assumed to be worth its $48B book value, GE's sum-of-the-parts valuation might be closer to $20.10-$22.30 per share, or 48%-64% above the current share price, the analyst adds. Further, he believes that if GE were to sell a large minority stake in GE Digital for $10B, this could be closer to $21.25-$23.45 per share. Heymann thinks that from a "very conservative perspective," using only 50% of GE Power's estimated $48B in book value and no GE Digital minority stake sale, GE's sum-of-the-parts value might be about $17.35 to $19.55 per share, or roughly 28% to 44% above its current share price. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on General Electric.

Underweight
GE turbine user feedback suggests issues worse than thought, says JPMorgan
Recently published feedback from a General Electric H-frame user group event suggests more serious technology issues with the new flagship product, JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa tells investors in a research note. While most of the focus has been on the technology around the blades, the event indicates a "myriad of shortfalls in other parts of the turbine that we find hard not to consider 'technology flaws,'" Tusa writes in a research note partially titled "Turbine Users Feedback Suggests Depth of Technology Issues Worse Than Initially Thought." He feels the commentary is a reminder of the hurdles to a "fix" for a Power business that is already set to lose money on a GAAP basis. Further, the consensus "seemingly continues to ignore on-the-ground realities in exchange for hope around a new CEO, if the $23B goodwill charge, guide down, and CEO change," the analyst contends. Tusa keeps an Underweight rating on shares of General Electric.

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. MCDONALD'S UPGRADED TO BUY: Guggenheim analyst Matthew DiFrisco upgraded McDonald's (MCD) to Buy from Neutral with a $200 price target as he believes the shares valuation discount to large cap peers has widened to an "unjustifiable" level given his outlook for stable to improving same-store sales and greater free cash flow generation. DEUTSCHE CUTS CONSUMER STAPLES STOCKS TO SELL: Deutsche Bank analyst Steve Powers downgraded Clorox (CLX), Church & Dwight (CHD) and Kimberly-Clark (KMB) to Sell from Hold and lowered his price targets to $123, $51, and $99, respectively. While investor appetite for defensive names remains elevated, the fundamental challenges facing Consumer Packaged Goods companies are "somewhat underappreciated," Powers believes. The analyst believes currency and emerging market volatility will pressure numbers in the near-term, while structural competitive and retail pressures will challenge momentum longer-term. PIPER STARTS MICRON AT NEUTRAL: Piper Jaffray analyst Harsh Kumar initiated coverage of Micron Technology (MU) with a Neutral rating and $48 price target. The analyst awaits more clarity surrounding the mid-term dynamics of the memory cycle before getting more constructive on the shares. The memory market as a whole has experienced favorable trends over the last few years, Kumar said. However, given the cyclical nature of the memory market, the analyst prefers to remain on the sidelines until he has a better grasp of the cycle. JPMORGAN ADDS DROPBOX TO FOCUS LIST: JPMorgan analyst Mark Murphy added Dropbox (DBX) to his firm's Analyst Focus List while keeping an Overweight rating on the shares with a $35 price target. While not convinced the "seven-day-old growth tech selloff is over," the analyst sees an improving risk/reward on Dropbox shares and potential for 30%-50% outperformance. He believes investors are "underestimating the stability and consistency of the Dropbox engine," and are overlooking the launch and adoption of its Premium plans. JPMORGAN SAYS GE TURBINE ISSUES MAY BE WORSE THAN THOUGHT: Recently published feedback from a General Electric (GE) H-frame user group event suggests more serious technology issues with the new flagship product, JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa said. While most of the focus has been on the technology around the blades, the event indicates a "myriad of shortfalls in other parts of the turbine that we find hard not to consider 'technology flaws,'" Tusa said. Tusa kept an Underweight rating on shares of General Electric.

Neutral
General Electric may see more downside before climbing, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Winoker said GE Capital continues to weigh on the shares of General Electric, but he believes that new CEO Larry Culp will work toward closing the balance sheet gaps through a combination of a deeper dividend cut, possibly of over 90%, and possibly a one-time capital raise to add some cushion for future investment. The analyst said turning the company around will take years, but he has every confidence that Larry Culp is the leader for the job. He said based on his valuation metrics, he could see near-term downside in the share before they begin climbing. Winoker maintained his Neutral rating and $13 price target on General electric shares.
