Energy Transfer targets raised on consolidation benefits at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Tom Abrams raised his price target on Energy Transfer Equity (ETE) to $21 from $19 and increased his target on Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) to $27 from $22 as he said simplification has improved Energy Transfer's cost of capital and he believes the proposed consolidation of the partnership should improve cash dynamics. Going forward, he sees pro forma Energy Transfer having several themes driving longer term performance, such as the Permian, exports, and NGLs, and views it as one of the better positioned MLPs, Abrams tells investors. He keeps an Overweight rating on Energy Transfer Equity and an Equal Weight rating on Energy Transfer Partners.

MUFG analyst Barrett Blaschke initiated USA Compression (USAC) with an Overweight rating and a price target of $22, saying the company has taken a "top spot in one of the less noticed business sub-sectors of the midstream universe following a recent acquisition" of CDM compression assets from Energy Transfer Partners (ETP). The analyst believes that the deal will further reduce the company's leverage while also anticipating a "relatively stable cash flows" thanks to expected rolling renewals of its near-term contracts. Blaschke further states that USA Compression's order backlog is at "historically high levels and the lead time for large horsepower compression units continues to increase".

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Micron (MU) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Mark Delaney seeing weaker fundamentals for DRAM and NAND in calendar Q4 and the first half of 2019. 2. NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Stifel wit hanalyst Tore Svanberg arguing that multiple recent industry data points seem to suggest the analog and mixed-signal semiconductor markets are peaking. 3. Snap (SNAP) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Richard Greenfield saying his previous assumption that "communications apps were sticky and would protect engagement" was incorrect. 4. Acuity Brands (AYI) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Brian Lee seeing three key issues emanating around margin risk: mix, costs, and pricing power. 5. CenterState Bank (CSFL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Sandler O'Neill with analyst Stephen Scouten saying further near-term upside "appears minimal" from current valuation levels.

NXP Semiconductors upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Vivek Arya upgraded NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) to Buy and raised its price target to $120 from $110 based on a potential sales growth recovery driven by new auto/IoT products, a stronger balance sheet, free-cash-flow growth and buybacks, and insider purchases. Arya also believes management is fully re-engaged following the two year distraction from the Qualcomm (QCOM) deal.

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. GOLDMAN CUTS MICRON TO NEUTRAL: Goldman Sachs analyst Mark Delaney downgraded Micron Technology (MU) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $50 from $68. The analyst, who is not making a call on the upcoming fiscal Q4 results on September 20, sees weaker fundamentals for DRAM and NAND in calendar Q4 and the first half of 2019. Delaney expects Micron's gross margin to decline sequentially from Q4 of 2018 through mid-2019, and he notes that the stock is historically well correlated with the company's gross margin. His view of margin declines is due to lower memory average selling prices, both from more "challenging" DRAM conditions and also NAND oversupply. Micron is down 5.8% in late morning trading. GOLDMAN CUTS LAM RESEARCH TO NEUTRAL: Goldman Sachs analyst Toshiya Hari downgraded Lam Research (LRCX) to Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $180 from $224. The analyst also lowered his coverage view on the Semiconductor Capital Equipment space to Neutral from Attractive. Hari reduced his 2018/2019 memory capex expectations following "early signs of excess supply" in DRAM combined with further weakness in NAND pricing. STIFEL CUTS NXP SEMI, OTHER SEMI COS: Stifel analyst Tore Svanberg downgraded NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) to Sell from Hold, arguing that multiple recent industry data points seem to suggest the analog and mixed-signal semiconductor markets are peaking. He is particularly concerned, given the peaking industry condition, that rising interest rates raise the risk for debt-heavy firms, he added. Svanberg cut his price target on NXP shares to $84 from $99. Svanberg also downgraded Macom (MTSI) to Sell, and Power Integrations (POWI) and Maxim Integrated (MXIM) to Hold. ANALYSTS NEGATIVE ON SNAP: BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield downgraded Snap (SNAP) to Sell from Neutral with a price target of $5, saying his previous assumption that "communications apps were sticky and would protect engagement" was incorrect. The analyst notes that while he waited for "management to figure out monetization", the stock has lost over half of its value. Greenfield believes that the pain is likely not over, stating that he is now "tired" of the company's excuses for missing numbers and adding that the anticipated product innovation ability of CEO Spiegel has been disappointing. Additionally, Citi analyst Mark May lowered his price target for Snap to $8 after removing his takeover premium assumption. The analyst had assumed a 50% probability of a takeout at a 35% premium to his fundamental value of $8 per share. However, he now sees less likelihood of a near-term takeover due to Snap's recent operational challenges. The analyst kept a Sell rating on the shares.

STMicroelectronics shares pullback 'now overdone,' says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Anthony Stoss believes STMicroelectronics' (STM) shares pullback in the last month is "now overdone" and shares are "too cheap" at current levels. Moreover, at the Apple (AAPL) event yesterday, the tech giant announced all three iPhones will come equipped with eSIM technology, as the analyst had predicted. Stoss thinks this is "a big deal" and believes STMicroelectronics knocked out NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) as the NFC supplier to Apple with this combo chip. He reiterates a Buy rating and $28 price target on STMicroelectronics shares.

U.S. banks 'in very good shape,' says Oppenheimer, favorites include BofA, Citi
Oppenheimer analyst Chris Kotowski tells investors in a research note that the U.S. banking group is on solid footing with balance sheets less risky than at any time over the last 33 years the firm covered the group and says his favorite bank stocks are Outperform-rated Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), CIT (CIT) and Goldman Sachs (GS). However, Kotowski notes that banks are trading at an average relative P/E of just ~66% relative to the S&P 500 and returning to a historical avg valuation of 73%-80% range would imply over a thousand basis points of outperformance by the group. In his view, the U.S. banks are, on the whole, in "very good" shape.

Bank of America, Morgan Stanley top ideas into Q2 earnings season, says Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Richard Ramsden expects Bank of America (BAC) and Morgan Stanley (MS) to beat consensus estimates in Q2. The analyst argues that both appear best positioned, while he sees risk for U.S. Bancorp (USB) and JPMorgan (JPM). Ramsden highlights Bank of America given the material valuation dislocation that looks to support the stock over time. Additionally, the analyst expects an expense and NII beat for Morgan Stanley.
