BofA/Merrill reinstating Oilfield Services coverage with Halliburton as top pick

BofA analyst Chase Mulvehill reinstated coverage of U.S. onshore and diversified oilfield service, or OFS, saying he has a bullish near-to-medium term view on the sector. The analyst notes that OFS should outperform thanks to rising oil prices that should lead to "solid" cash flows across the sector. Mulvehill further anticipates investment to increase across the industry, with North America land E&P spending surprising to the upside and U.S. onshore D&C spending rising nearly 20%. The analyst also sees "Permian pipeline relief" adding to the benefits with exposure to the basin. Mulvehill's Top Pick is Halliburton (HAL), and his other Buy-rated names include Baker Hughes (BHGE), C&J Energy Services (CJ), FTS International (FTSI), Keane Group (FRAC), Nabors Industries (NBR), Nine Energy Service (NINE), Patterson-UTI Energy (PTEN), ProPetro Holdings Corp (PUMP), and Schlumberger (SLB).

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. WALMART UPPED TO BUY AT DEUTSCHE: Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell upgraded Walmart (WMT) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $113 from $89. The retailer is reaping returns on the many years of investment in e-commerce and customer service, Trussell said. The analyst believes Walmart is now in position to accelerate market share gains in grocery while also growing EBIT dollars and expanding return on investment. He believes Walmart's portfolio of assets is differentiated in the "rapidly changing" retail landscape. In late morning trading, Walmart is up just over 2%. KROGER CUT TO SELL AT DEUTSCHE: Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell downgraded Kroger (KR) to Sell from Hold and lowered his price target for the shares to $24 from $30. Kroger's strategy to aggressively expand e-commerce capabilities, optimize space within current footprint, and compete on price "will likely be significantly more costly than the company and consensus are currently forecasting," Trussell said. The analyst, while believing Kroger may be one of the winners in food retail over the long term, thinks the "period of rapid change" in the grocery sector will likely make it challenging for the company to grow profits "while playing from a position of weakness." JEFFERIES UPGRADES BAKER HUGHES TO BUY: Jefferies analyst Brad Handler upgraded Baker Hughes (BHGE) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $38 from $34. Earnings power of $4 per share next decade "seems tangible," as is free cash flow conversion of greater than 90% of estimated earnings, Handler said. Further, he thinks General Electric (GE) "fire-sale" risk is small. MACQUARIE STARTS TESLA WITH AN OUTPERFORM: Macquarie analyst Maynard Um initiated Tesla (TSLA) with an Outperform rating and $430 price target, stating that he sees the company having unique potential among carmakers to be a leader in in-vehicle ecosystem platforms. In the near-term, Um also thinks Tesla has enough levers to get over its "debt maturity hump," including cash flow from ZEV credits and Model 3 sales, access to $1.2B unused debt commitment, and the potential for credit amendments. MOFFETTNATHANSON SAYS SNAP WILL NEED TO RAISE CAPITAL: MoffettNathanson analyst Michael Nathanson said he is skeptical, despite Snap (SNAP) CEO Evan Spiegel's internal memo, that the company can hit his stated 2019 goal of achieving full year positive free cash flow and profitability. Snap "is quickly running out of money," contends Nathanson, who thinks the company will need to raise capital by the middle to end of 2019. The analyst lowered his revenue estimates for 2019 and 2020 as he anticipates slower DAU and ARPU growth ahead and maintained his Neutral rating on Snap shares, though he cut his price target to $6.50 from $8.

Given his view that Permian constraints will "dominate the narrative" through the Q2 earnings season, and his belief that the Permian's regional weakness has potential to transmit to other basins, Lynagh recommends decreasing completions exposure and increasing land drilling exposure.

Societe Generale cuts Weatherford to sell amid oil services rating shake-up
As previously reported, Societe Generale analyst Edward Muztafago made several ratings changes in the oil services space as he recommended rotating more fully into offshore and reducing U.S. land exposure. He views U.S. activity being poised for constrained growth following an anticipated recovery from "the current frac malaise," while believing offshore activity appears set to inflect, Muztafago tells investors. With that backdrop view, he upgraded Ensco (ESV), Noble Corp. (NE) and Oceaneering (OII), all to Buy from Hold, downgraded Halliburton (HAL) to Hold from Buy and lowered his rating on Weatherford (WFT) to Sell from Buy. Current U.S. challenges and the "stock market meltdown" create risk to Weatherford's asset divestiture plans that investors are so concerned about and "stumbles may not be well received," Muztafago stated.

Jefferies analyst Brad Handler downgraded Hi-Crush Partners (HCLP) and Smart Sand (SND) to Underperform from Hold as well as Covia (CVIA) and U.S. Silica (SLCA) to Hold from Buy citing "sinking" Northern white sand demand and prices. The analyst sees the weakness spreading to regional/in-basin sand and ultimately to box/silo-based last-mile solutions as "supply adds overtake demand growth." He also expects the Q3 earnings season to drive downward estimate revisions. Smart Sand, Covia and Hi-Crus have the highest Northern white sand exposure, Handler tells investors in a research note.

He is most concerned about the sand market, which is deteriorating faster than he expected, Lynagh tells investors. Given the industry's supply/demand set-up, Lynagh sees it as hard to believe investors will bet on a rebound, he added. The analyst cut his price target on Covia shares to $9 from $11 and lowered his target for U.S. Silica to $18 from $25.
