Murphy Oil upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Mizuho

Mizuho analyst Paul Sankey upgraded Murphy Oil (MUR) to Neutral while lowering his price target for the shares to $41 from $42. The Gulf of Mexico joint venture with Petrobras (PBR) is "nicely accretive" and affords Murphy "optionality," Sankey tells investors in a research note. He continues to have concerns about "unconventional inventory running room," but thinks these issues are now more addressable than before.

Mizuho names 'Apple of oil' EOG top pick in Oil & Gas sector
Mizuho analyst Paul Sankey last night initiated 10 names in the Global Oil & Gas group with five buys, four neutrals and one underperform. He also maintained a Buy rating on Occidental Petroleum (OXY) and Neutral rating on ConocoPhillips (COP). The analyst put Buy ratings on EOG Resources (EOG), his top pick in the group, Anadarko Petroleum (APC), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD), Noble Energy (NBL) and Suncor (SU). Sankey calls EOG the Apple (AAPL) of oil. The company has been a pioneer in unconventional oil development in the U.S. and its technology-driven, innovation-focused approach will continue to drive peer-leading rates of return and oil growth, the analyst contends. He put Neutral ratings on Devon Energy (DVN), Hess Corp. (HES), Marathon Oil (MRO) and Apache (APA). Lastly, Sankey initiated Murphy Oil (MUR) with an Underperform rating and $36 price target. While the stock trades well below peers on both mid-cycle free cash and discount to net asset value, there is not enough potential upside to justify a Neutral at this point, Sankey told investors in a research note.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. General Electric (GE) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Julian Mitchell saying while he does not yet know the magnitude of the 2018 guidance cuts, his talks with investors suggest they are braced for earnings per share of 75c for 2018, free cash flow of 50c, and a dividend cut of 75%-plus. 2. Conagra Brands (CAG) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Steven Strycula saying Conagra at current share levels offers the best risk/reward in Food. 3. Willis Towers Watson (WLTW) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Michael Zaremski saying he has been puzzled by the stock weakness post what was admittedly a confusing Q2 EPS report, because peers have re-rated upwards. 4. CenterPoint Energy (CNP) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Sarah Akers saying she is attracted to the company's post-merger outlook, and his sum of the parts valuation supports a 13%-14% total return proposition. 5. Petrobras (PBR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Santander, to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill, and to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Petrobras upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Frank McGann upgraded Petrobras to Buy from Neutral citing the strong showing of Jair Bolsonaro in winning the presidential election's first round in Brazil. Although there is still significant energy policy uncertainty and limited clarity as to how the new government will deal with Petrobras, McGann sees Bolsonaro's victory lowering the perceived policy risk than had been priced into Petrobras's stock, he tells investors. He raised his price target on the ADRs to $20 from $17.
