Neutral
Southwest initiated with a Neutral at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Catherine O'Brien started Southwest Airlines with a Neutral rating and $61 price target. The analyst believes it will be difficult for the company to expand margins in 2019 amid productivity driven cost tailwinds. She also launched coverage on the U.S. Airlines sector with an Attractive coverage view. Stronger revenue trends in 2019 coupled with a focus on cost control should drive higher industry operating margins for the first time since 2015 despite fuel headwinds, O'Brien tells investors in a research note.

Buy
Southwest benefiting from increased travel spending, says Tigress Financial
Tigress Financial analyst Ivan Feinseth kept his Buy rating on Southwest Airlines, saying the company continues to "benefit from increased consumer spending on travel" and sees the latest pullback in the stock price as a "buying opportunity". The analyst adds that the airline's positive performance trends are being driven by the management's "no-frills" operating strategy. Feinseth further cites the positive macro backdrop of a "strong economy, low unemployment, and increases in consumer spending".

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. LabCorp (LH) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst Jasper Hellweg saying the company is faced with pressure from "lower lab testing payment rates mandated by the Protecting Access to Medicaid Act of 2014" along with business disruptions and the impact of acquisitions which resulted in lowers margins for the quarter. 2. E-Trade (ETFC) downgraded to Outperform from Strong Buy at Raymond James with analyst Patrick O'Shaughnessy saying the recent board decision not to sell the business and remain a standalone company takes a sales scenario off the table. The analyst remains positive on shares ans believes there is plenty of upside as management executes on its operating plan. 3. Southwest (LUV) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan while United Continental (UAL) and Spirit Airlines (SAVE) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight. 4. Flex (FLEX) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst Jim Kelleher citing the expected impact from the "shutdown of Mexican operations with key customer Nike (NKE), which he expects to be fully unwound," as well as the retirement of the company CEO Mike McNamara who had presided over the company's business expansion. 5. Elevate Credit (ELVT) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at JMP Securities and William Blair. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

JPMorgan downgrades three airlines, upgrades JetBlue to Overweight
JPMorgan analyst Jamie Baker continues to believe that a "trading trifecta" has formed for U.S. Airlines in investors' favor. The case for industry margin expansion remains the best we've seen in four years, and most stocks are within 10% of their autumnal lows, "suggesting seasonal trade-winds may lift equities as they often do," Baker tells investors in a research note. He thinks the industry remains on a path towards margin expansion for the first time since 2014 amid lower year-over-year capacity, "robust" demand, "disciplinary" fuel, and no immediate risk to labor cost assumptions. After making changes to his estimates and price targets, Baker downgraded United Continental (UAL) and Spirit Airlines (SAVE) to Neutral from Overweight, downgraded Southwest Airlines (SAVE) to Underweight from Neutral, and upgraded JetBlue Airways (JBLU) to Overweight from Neutral. Southwest and United entered the year as underperformers, but appear poised to potentially exit as winners, says Baker. From here, he'd rather focus on the "names that haven't worked than pound the table on the two that have." For Southwest, the analyst does not envision significant downside potential, but rather views the stock as "stalled at current valuation levels until such time a trajectory towards higher margins can better be established." Meanwhile, JetBlue is the "cheapest" of the domestic airlines and its target multiple is the lowest, Baker says. He sees over 20% upside potential in the shares.
