Huntington Ingalls awarded $197M contract modification for submarine

Huntington Ingalls (HII) Industries announced that its Newport News Shipbuilding division has been awarded a $197M modification to a previously awarded contract from General Dynamics (GD) Electric Boat to provide long-lead-time material and advance construction activities for the first Columbia-class ballistic missile submarine. The advance procurement funds will be used to purchase major components and commodity material and to begin advance construction on Columbia. Newport News is a major subcontractor for the construction of the new class of ballistic-missile submarines, which are being designed to replace the Ohio-class submarines. "This contract modification is critical in engaging the submarine industrial base as we continue our efforts to support starting full construction in Fiscal Year 2021," said Jason Ward, Newport News' vice president for Columbia-class construction.Construction of the 12-submarine Columbia class is expected to begin in Fiscal Year 2021 with the first delivery to the Navy in 2028.

Goldman calls Huntington most expensive in Defense, downgrades to Sell
Goldman Sachs analyst Noah Poponak downgraded Huntington Ingalls Industries to Sell from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $208 from $220. Poponak says Huntington is now the most expensive stock in his Defense coverage on economic, price-to-earnings and free cash flow yield. The analyst believes the stock could underperform Defense peers in the medium-term given the valuation. Further, he sees risks to each of revenue growth, margin levels, and free cash versus market expectations, and expects Huntington's earnings to decline in 2019.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
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.

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. JPMORGAN UPGRADES LUMENTUM AFTER SELLOFF: JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee upgraded Lumentum (LITE) to Overweight from Neutral with an unchanged price target of $80. The 19% stock decline from the highs in late August, driven by concerns relative to U.S.-China trade, over-appreciates the "modest risks" for Lumentum, Chatterjee said. He believes this creates an "attractive buying opportunity" to capitalize on the near-term improvement in the earnings outlook. GOLDMAN CUTS HUNTINGTON TO SELL: Goldman Sachs analyst Noah Poponak downgraded Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) to Sell from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $208 from $220. Poponak said Huntington is now the most expensive stock in his Defense coverage on economic, price-to-earnings and free cash flow yield. The analyst believes the stock could underperform Defense peers in the medium-term given the valuation. JEFFRIES STARTS HERBALIFE WITH A BUY: Jefferies analyst Akshay Jagdale started Herbalife Nutrition (HLF) with a Buy rating and $65 price target. After a period of "muted growth," Herbalife's sales looked poised to accelerate to a more normalized range of 5%-9%, Jagdale believes. He thinks the company should be able to grow at least in line with its total addressable market growth rate of 6%. This, coupled with margin expansion and accretive free cash flow usage, should drive "significant" earnings upside and support a "growth company valuation," Jagdale said. JPMORGAN RAISES PRICE TARGET ON NY TIMES: JPMorgan analyst Alexia Quadrani raised her price target for New York Times (NYT) to $32 and reiterated an Overweight rating on the shares ahead of the company's Q3 results. The analyst said that while quarterly subscriber growth may continue to be volatile, the company's longer-term trends are positive. She expects New York Times' growth to "remain at elevated levels for the foreseeable future." SNAP PRICE TARGET CUT AT GOLDMAN SACHS: Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry lowered his price target for Snap (SNAP) to $11 from $17, while reiterating a Buy rating on the shares. With Snap shares down 50% since the company reported Q2 results, beyond the broader weakness in social media, the analyst believes investors are clearly focused on the impact competition is having on the company's user growth, ability to monetize, and capital needs. Terry continues to believe that a Twitter-like (TWTR) turnaround is possible, particularly as the new Android app comes out of Alpha later this quarter. However, it is unlikely that Q3 results will show any signs of that as reported DAUs decline and engagement is negatively impacted by the redesign/competition, he said.

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. UBS SAYS BUY AT&T: UBS analyst John Hodulik upgraded AT&T (T) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $38 from $33, noting that the stock is trading near all-time low valuations and at its widest valuation gap to Verizon (VZ). The Time Warner transaction and accounting changes "have compounded [other] issues, leading to a loss of visibility for investors," but his work indicates that AT&T will return to EBITDA growth in the second half of 2018, after a 6% decline in the first half, due to growth in Wireless and WarnerMedia as well as slower declines in Entertainment. JPMORGAN GOES TO BULL FROM BEAR ON NOVAVAX: JPMorgan analyst Eric Joseph double upgraded Novavax (NVAX) to Overweight from Underweight saying the risk/reward is favorable into the report of Prepare trial data in Q1 of 2019. The trial is assessing the efficacy of the company's RSV F Vaccine for infants via maternal immunization and the analyst believes the shares can hit a range of $2.00 to $2.25, he told investors. JPMORGAN SUGGESTS BEING SHORT COPART, LONG KAR: JPMorgan analyst Ryan Brinkman downgraded Copart (CPRT) to Underweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $47 from $48. The company reported softer than expected Q4 results this week but trades at "near record multiples" of earnings and EBITDA, Brinkman told investors. The analyst sees a potential pair trade in going long KAR Auction (KAR) shares, and short Copart shares, to capitalize on the "valuation disconnect." LOOP SETS $8.25 TARGET ON HARMONIC: Loop Capital analyst James Kisner initiated Harmonic (HLIT) with a Buy rating and $8.25 price target, saying he believes Harmonic can "drive robust revenue growth on its Cable Edge business as cable operators like Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) adopt its virtual CCAP/CMTS solution," and that the company's video business with stabilize. 'DON'T PANIC' OVER DOD PROPOSAL: Morgan Stanley analyst Rajeev Lalwani attributes the underperformance in Defense stocks over the last two days compared to the broader market to heightened concerns around a month old proposal from the Department of Defense to adjust progress and performance payments down to 50% from 80% of cost, which would effectively slow the timing of cash flow receipts closer to when a project is complete. He sees a number of reasons not to panic, mainly because he believes that the Administration will not move forward with a proposal industry-players will paint as being anti-business and anti-defense spending. Publicly-traded defense contractors include General Dynamics (GD), Huntington Ingalls (HII), L3 Technologies (LLL), Lockheed Martin (LMT), Northrop Grumman (NOC) and Raytheon (RTN).

General Dynamics price target lowered to $200 from $210 at Stifel
Stifel analyst Joseph DeNardi lowered his price target for General Dynamics to $200 from $210 following mixed results as revenue guidance softens. The analyst views the supply chain issues affecting General Dynamics as fixable, while demand at Gulfstream and GD's defense business remains healthy. However, General Dynamics is going to be "treated differently by the market relative to its purer-play defense peers when cycle-related selloffs materialize like today," he contends. DeNardi reiterates a Hold rating on the shares.

General Dynamics price target lowered to $210 from $250 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Sam Pearlstein lowered his price target for General Dynamics to $210 from $250 due to the overall multiple compression in defense stocks. The analyst believes the stock's post-Q3 sell-off had several causes, including a slight EPS miss, a lower Aerospace backlog, and downward revenue revisions in three segments. Still, Pearlstein believes General Dynamics' core defense business is positioned for solid growth, while Gulfstream volumes should improve as soon as Q4. He reiterates and Outperform rating on the shares.
