Weight Watchers' refresh could be 'major' positive catalyst, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Alex Fuhrman reiterated a Buy rating and $120 price target on Weight Watchers. In a research note to investors, the analyst says he believes the upcoming Weight Watchers brand refresh, which is expected to be unveiled before the end of the year and possibly before the early-November Q3 report, could be a major positive catalyst for shares. Fuhrman says Weight Watchers' brick and mortar locations could be rebranded as "WW Studio," which he calls a "significant upgrade" from the current "meetings" offering and sees the likely renaming of the "OnlinePlus" offering and the corporate wellness offering. Additionally, Fuhrman expects that the company's "underutilized" B&M locations may be put to more use, including possibly introducing regular operating hours for some of its higher-traffic locations.

Overweight
Weight Watchers added to America's Analyst Focus at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Christina Brathwaite added Weight Watchers International to her firm's America's Analyst Focus while keeping an Overweight rating on the shares with a $120 price target. The stock's 30% pullback from its peak on June 20 presents a "compelling entry point for investors who missed the stock's appreciation the first time around," Brathwaite tells investors in a research note. Despite the post-earnings selloff, the analyst believes the Q2 print was actually indicative that Weight Watchers' growth story remains on track. Further, she believes the changes announced last week, including its new rewards program, as well as the company's Invite a Friend program, will help drive member recruitment and retention going forward.

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. GE UPGRADED AT RBC, WOLFE: RBC Capital analyst Deane Dray upgraded General Electric (GE) to Outperform from Sector Perform and raised his price target for the shares to $15 from $13. The analyst believes a floor has been put in the shares following news of Larry Culp being named Chairman and CEO. Additionally, GE was upgraded to Outperform from Peer Perform at Wolfe Research. DEUTSCHE SEES HEIGHTENED RISKS TO FACEBOOK ESTIMATES: After attending the first day of AdWeek, Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley sees heightened risk to the Q3, Q4 and 2019 consensus estimates for Facebook (FB). The analyst said he's starting to hear more cautious feedback and that Facebook seems on the defensive, particularly following last week's data breach disclosure. Walmsley, however, continues to view Facebook as attractively valued and kept a Buy rating on the shares with a $205 price target. JPMORGAN ADDS WEIGHT WATCHERS TO FOCUS LIST: JPMorgan analyst Christina Brathwaite added Weight Watchers (WTW) to her firm's America's Analyst Focus while keeping an Overweight rating on the shares with a $120 price target. The stock's 30% pullback from its peak on June 20 presents a "compelling entry point for investors who missed the stock's appreciation the first time around," Brathwaite said. Despite the post-earnings selloff, the analyst believes the Q2 print was actually indicative that Weight Watchers' growth story remains on track. Further, she believes the changes announced last week, including its new rewards program, as well as the company's Invite a Friend program, will help drive member recruitment and retention going forward. AMBEV DOUBLE DOWNGRADED BY UBS: UBS analyst Alan Alanis double downgraded Ambev (ABEV) to Sell from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to R$17 from R$23. AmBev trades at a 25% higher valuation than parent company AB InBev (BUD), which is unwarranted, Alanis believes. He believes Ambev shares at current levels are more than pricing in the company's favorable outlook. Further, he expects consensus estimates to come down due to a tougher competitive environment, a "tepid" Brazilian economic recovery and currency headwinds. DEUTSCHE DOWNGRADES METAL STOCKS: Deutsche Bank analyst Jeremy Kliewer downgraded Century Aluminum to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $15 from $20, stating that Century's margins could remain pressured for longer due to alumina supply disruptions. Meanwhile, Deutsche's Chris Terry downgraded Reliance Steel (RS) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $90 from $100, and downgraded U.S. Steel (X) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $35 from $47. The analyst said his view on the steel sector is "moderating post peak pricing." Most positive data points and catalysts have now largely played out, Terry believes.

Weight Watchers price target cut to $90 from $115 at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma backed an Overweight rating on Weight Watchers but cut his price target to $90 following the company's quarterly results, telling investors in a research note that the company is seeing an accelerated shift to digital, which he thinks will be positive long term, but creates some near-term "noise."
