Kellogg price target lowered to $74 from $85 at Argus

Argus analyst Chris Graja lowered his price target on Kelogg to $74, saying that while the company's Q3 results were in-line, its outlook for FY18 was disappointing with a cut in earnings growth. The analyst also lowers his FY18 EPS view to $4.35 from $4.50 to reflect the management's plans to step up its business investment but keeps his Buy rating on the shares, calling Kellogg valuation as "very reasonable". Graja also anticipates that Kellogg will benefit from its recent acquisitions and cost-saving initiatives.

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. LULULEMON UPGRADED TO OUTPERFORM: Wells Fargo analyst Ike Boruchow upgraded Lululemon (LULU) to Outperform from Market Perform, stating that while the brand's current strength is "evident to essentially everyone," his recent meetings with management lead him to believe that its "industry leading" momentum is likely sustainable through the second half of this year and well into 2019. While admitting to being "late to the party," Boruchow said he sees meaningful outperformance and upward revisions being ahead for the athletic apparel company. He raised his price target on Lululemon shares to $200 from $144. In late morning trading, Lululemon shares are higher by 2.3%. NOMURA UPGRADES BROADCOM TO BUY: Nomura Instinet analyst Romit Shah upgraded Broadcom (AVGO) to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $300 from $225. The analyst says the "so many positive takeaways from earnings" have forced him to take a more constructive stance on the shares. GOLDMAN SWAPS CONVICTION BUY ON MASTERCARD, VISA: Goldman Sachs analyst James Schneider added MasterCard (MA) to his firm's Conviction List while maintaining a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst also upped his price target for the stock to $260 from $230. Goldman Sachs analyst James Schneider removed Visa (V) from his firm's Conviction List but maintains a Buy rating on the shares with an unchanged price target of $160. The analyst, who continues to see upside to Street estimates, cites the recent share outperformance for the removal. MORGAN STANLEY INITIATES CONSUMER STAPLES: Morgan Stanley analyst Dara Mohsenian assumed Kraft Heinz (KHC) with an Underweight and $52 price target, as he believes it topline growth will likely trail food peers. In late morning trading, Kraft Heinz shares were down almost 2%. The analyst also assumed coverage of Mondelez (MDLZ), General Mills (GIS), and Kellogg (K) with Equal Weight ratings. KEYBANC SEES CANNABIS AS DRIVER FOR SHOPIFY: KeyBanc analyst Monika Garb said she is a buyer of Shopify (SHOP), as the company has "ample" growth opportunities ahead, and she sees potential upside to her above-consensus estimates. She expects that recreational sales of cannabis in Canada could be a GMV and revenue driver and further benefit Shopify's business momentum. Garb maintained an Overweight rating and $182 price target on the shares.

Kellogg price target lowered to $74 from $79 at Piper Jaffray
Kellogg is seeing improving organic growth momentum but also margin headwinds as it accelerates brand spending and deals with higher costs from capacity constraints, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Lavery tells investors in a research note titled "Pain Now, Gains Later: Medium-Term Snacks Outlook Is Strong." The analyst lowered his 2018 earnings per share estimate to $4.30 from $4.50 and 2019 estimate to $4.40 from $4.80 following the company's Q3 results. He also dropped his price target for the shares to $74 from $79. Lavery, however, believes single-serve snacks is an attractive long-term opportunity and reiterates an Overweight rating on Kellogg.

Kellogg removed from U.S. Focus List at Citi
Citi analyst David Driscoll lowered his price target for Kellogg to $79 from $87 and removed the shares from his firm's U.S. Focus List following the company's Q3 results. While the earnings report "clearly highlighted revenue momentum," Kellogg is now facing some short-term profit headwinds related to co-packing and logistic costs driven by greater than expected demand in U.S. single serve snacks, Driscoll tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, views yesterday's stock pullback as overdone and keeps a Buy rating on Kellogg.

The analyst notes that the company is faced with increased margin and earnings pressure coming from co-packing and brand building expenses, adding that while investments may be fuelling consumer demand, he also wonders "when profitable sustainable growth will return".
