General Electric downgraded to Hold at Argus on disappointing Q2
As reported earlier, Argus analyst John Eade downgraded General Electric to Hold from Buy, saying that despite his expectations of a turnaround, Q2 results were a "step in the opposite direction" suggesting the company will struggle to meet its FY18 guidance. Eade also lowers his FY18 EPS forecast to 97c from $1.03, adding that GE will need to show at least two quarter of progress before he would reconsider his rating. The analyst further states that while he expects the company to look different in 2-4 years, the outlook for its its core business segments - Power and Renewable Energy - is bleak, saying he prefers other large industrials Such as Illinois Tool Works (ITW), United Technologies (UTX) and Boeing (BA) over 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. STIFEL SAYS SELL PAPA JOHN'S: Stifel analyst Chris O'Cull downgraded Papa John's (PZZA) to Sell from Hold and cut his price target for the shares to $38 from $50. The outlook for Papa John's is "growing dimmer" after recent media reports indicated a "fraternal corporate culture," O'Cull told investors. The reports reinforce the consumer perception that Papa John's is not a trusted brand, the analyst added. His recent channel checks indicate the company's domestic same-restaurant-sales are running down in the mid-teens since last week's media report about the company's founder using a racial slur. Papa John's is in a "precarious position," as it needs a "strategic savior" but is struggling to find one "willing to underwrite a transaction given the brand damage," O'Cull contended. Papa John's shares are down 7% in midday trading BTIG SAYS BUY SPOTIFY: BTIG analyst Rich Greenfield initiated Spotify (SPOT) with a Buy rating and a price target of $230, saying that awaiting a better entry on the stock price "has not worked." The analyst contended that the company will be a "long-term winner" in the subscription music category that remains in its infancy and will "grow significantly for years to come." DEUTSCHE RAISES QUALCOMM TARGET TO $60: Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Seymore raised his price target for Qualcomm (QCOM) shares to $60 from $55 after concluding that removal of the uncertainty from the NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) deal likely leads to incremental upside in either scenario. The analyst said he has no way of assigning probabilities of deal approval given the politically charged nature of the pending regulatory ruling from China's State Administration for Market Regulation. Seymore kept Hold ratings on both Qualcomm and NXP. ARGUS CUTS GE TO HOLD: Argus analyst John Eade downgraded General Electric (GE) to Hold from Buy, saying that despite his expectations of a turnaround, Q2 results were a "step in the opposite direction" suggesting the company will struggle to meet its FY18 guidance. Eade lowered his FY18 EPS forecast to 97c from $1.03, adding that GE will need to show at least two quarter of progress before he would reconsider his rating. The analyst prefers other large industrials such as Illinois Tool Works (ITW), United Technologies (UTX) and Boeing (BA) over General Electric, he added.

United Technologies offered 'plenty' to stay positive, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Deane Dray writes that in his investor meetings with United Technologies, the company offered "plenty of reason" to stay positive on the stock. Specifically, the analyst cites the management's confidence in concluding the Rockwell Collins acquisition in September as well as the progress in the geared turbofan, or GTF, development. Dray adds that he was also surprised with the management's candid discussions of the pros/cons of a three-way portfolio break-up.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Under Armour (UA, UAA) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Macquarie with analyst Laurent Vasilescu citing weaker North America revenues, flat Connected Fitness revenues, international revenues of up 21% year-over-year, gross margin pressure, and higher SG&A assumptions. 2. Verizon (VZ) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at MoffettNathanson. 3. Lockheed Martin (LMT) and Rockwell Collins (COL) were downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo. 4. Spirit Airlines (SAVE) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Joseph DeNardi saying he believes Spirit will benefit this year from an improving demand and revenue environment, but that its higher revenue risk relative to potential competitive responses to its expected capacity growth is not fully reflected in the stock at current levels. 5. Finisar (FNSR) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Doug Clark saying risks of oversupply and competition are heating up in the optical component landscape.

United Technologies sum-of-the-parts worth $150/share or more, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Sam Pearlstein continues to thinks United Technologies' (UTX) sum-of-the-parts is worth $150 or more per share. With the close of the Rockwell Collins (COL) acquisition around mid-year, the analyst updated his proforma estimates to reflect the combined entity. Either the stock will begin to reflect the fundamentals or the expected strategic review likely leads to realizing that value, Pearlstein tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Outperform rating on United Technologies.
