Overweight
Utilities sector upgraded to Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley equity strategist Michael Wilson noted that year-to-date performance across assets shows large divergences in performance across the risk spectrum, arguing that it is "probably not too early" to start shifting out of some of the extreme cyclicals and picking up more defensively oriented names given the "ever tightening" financial conditions. He upgraded the Utilities sector to Overweight, citing expectations of peak 10 Year Treasury yields and improving relative earnings breadth. The firm has individual Overweight ratings on American Electric (AEP), FirstEnergy (FE), NextEra Energy (NEE), NextEra Energy Partners (NEP), PG&E (PCG), PSEG (PEG) and Xcel Energy (XEL).

Morgan Stanley shakes up utility ratings, upgrades Atmos, downgrades Xcel
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Stephen Byrd upgraded Atmos Energy (ATO) to Overweight from Equal Weight as he laid out his favorite ideas in regulated utilities based on his estimates of their 2020 earnings power. Byrd believes Atmos' 5% discount to the gas utility group undervalues its "best-in-class" growth outlook and attractive regulatory environment, he tells investors. Byrd also downgraded Xcel Energy (XEL) to Equal Weight from Overweight, telling investors that he sees modest level of upside remaining in the stock and few near-term catalysts for outperformance. In shifting his focus to 2020 earnings power, Byrd also identifies FirstEnergy (FE), PSEG (PEG), American Electric (AEP) and NextEra Energy (NEE) as stocks in the group with undervalued growth.
