Porsche CFO sees potential IPO reap Ferrari-like multiples, Bloomberg reports

Porsche (POAHY) CFO Lutz Meschke said a share sale of Volkswagen's (VLKAY) most profitable unit could unlock value similar to Ferrari's (RACE) successful public offering and assist the automaker in raising funds if needed, Bloomberg reports, citing Meschke. The CFO said Porsche could easily be valued between EUR60B-EUR70B, or $69.4B-$81B, applying multiples for luxury-goods producers, such as Ferrari, and a partial IPO would contribute financing flexibility as the auto industry faces "the biggest transformation ever", however the company said in a written statement that it is not pursuing plans for a listing.Reference Link

VW acquisition scenario supports $53 Navistar target, says Jefferies
Recent news flow regarding a separation of Volkswagen's (VLKAY) Truck and Bus business and the potential for full ownership of Navistar (NAV) has driven Navistar shares up 13% relative to the S&P 500 over the past month, Jefferies analyst Stephen Volkmann tells investors in a research note. After examining potential synergies and valuation scenarios for a tie-up, the analyst has increased confidence in his high-on-the-Street $53 price target for Navistar shares.

Jefferies lists buys on 'wildly overdone' electric truck concerns
The ramp of electric trucks amp may be slower than in passenger cars, and incumbent truck makers are likely to remain key players, Jefferies analyst Stephen Volkmann tells investors in a research note. To a much greater extent than in passenger vehicles, commercial vehicle sales rely on uptime and return on investment, and are driven by brand relationship and dealer support, Volkmann adds. He views the "terminal multiple" concerns for established truck players as "wildly overdone" and recommends buying shares of Paccar (PCAR), Navistar (NAV), Volkswagen (VLKAY) and Volvo (VOLVY).

As VW appointment drives Navistar speculation, Jefferies sees eventual buyout
Noting that Navistar (NAV) shares are rising amid broader market weakness today following a Reuters report that Volkswagen (VLKAY) has appointed a new CFO noted to be an M&A expert, Jefferies analyst Stephen Volkmann said he continues to believe Volkswagen will pursue full ownership of Navistar, although he calls the timing of such an event "highly uncertain." He maintains a Buy rating and "Street high" price target of $53 on Navistar shares.

E-tron may not be 'Tesla killer,' but still a 'real risk,' says Vertical Group
After attending Audi's (AUDVF) launch event for its e-tron SUV, Vertical Group analyst Gordon Johnson said he sees Audi's foray in the EV space as "a real risk" to Tesla (TSLA) and other EV auto makers including Chevy (GM) and Ford (F). The Electrify America charging network, owned by a JV of Audi parent Volkswagen (VLKAY) and funded by "Dieselgate," positions Audi's fast-charging ambitions among the most robust, if not the most robust, in the U.S. currently, added Johnson. He does not see Audi's forthcoming e-tron as a "TSLA Killer," but does not "see it a stretch to think of it as a potential TSLA Model X killer," he concludes in his note to investors. Johnson keeps a Sell rating on Tesla shares.

Ferrari upgraded to Hold on revised mid-term plan at Societe Generale
As previously reported, Societe Generale analyst Stephen Reitman upgraded Ferrari to Hold from Sell, stating that the final version of the mid-term FY22 plan shared by new CEO Louis Camilleri in September broadly repeats the key financial goals first stated in February, but the manner as to how these will be achieved appears to have fundamentally altered. Given his favorable view of the revisions to the plan and the company's cash tax savings steps, Reitman raised his FY18, FY19 and FY20 EPS forecasts by 21%, 46% and 44%, respectively. He also increased his price target on Ferrari shares to $130 from $94.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Discovery (DISCA) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Doug Mitchelson saying he has reviewed the company's Nielsen ratings trends in detail, discussed the company's ad execution with industry contacts and recalibrated distribution trends leading to an increase in his U.S. revenue forecast and increased confidence in his above-Street EBITDA estimates. 2. McDonald's (MCD) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Guggenheim. 3. Ferrari (RACE) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Societe Generale with analyst Stephen Reitman saying the final version of the mid-term FY22 plan shared by new CEO Louis Camilleri in September broadly repeats the key financial goals first stated in February, but the manner as to how these will be achieved appears to have fundamentally altered. 4. Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst JP McKim saying a survey of doctors from various specialties came back favorable for robotics and confirms that robotic surgery penetration is going "much higher." 5. Tile Shop (TTS) assumed with a Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Geoffrey Small saying the hard-surface flooring sector is attractive given its favorable growth profile, highly-fragmented structure and because it carries very little threat of e-commerce disruption.

Jefferies analyst Philippe Jean Houchois downgraded Ferrari to Hold and lowered his price target for the shares to $132 from $155. The analyst re-based his expectations lower to reflect higher upfront investments and a lower quality of earnings as management's new strategy of less volume and more exclusivity takes hold.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Huntington Ingalls (HII) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Noah Poponak saying the company's pace of growth may not support current valuation levels. 2. Ferrari (RACE) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Philippe Jean Houchois saying he re-based his expectations lower to reflect higher upfront investments and a lower quality of earnings as management's new strategy of less volume and more exclusivity takes hold. 3. Valero (VLO) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Tudor Pickering. 4. TransDigm (TDG) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird with analyst Peter Arment saying the Esterline (ESL) deal is a shift in the company's strategy in buying a "fixer-up asset" with significantly below average returns that will take time to improve. He believes it will be an overhang on the stock near-term. Arment maintained his $365 price target on TransDigm shares. 5. Tata Motors (TTM) downgraded to Hold from Buy at HSBC with analyst Amyn Pirani saying while the company's India business has surprised positively, Jaguar Land Rover's volumes have continued to decline.
