United Continental downgraded to Underperform from In-Line at Imperial Capital

Imperial Capital analyst Michael Derchin downgraded United Continental Holdings (UAL) to Underperform and lowered his price target for the shares to $73 from $110. Following Delta's (DAL) Q4 update, further declines in fuel prices and recent market volatility, the analyst reduced his valuations and unit revenue expectations "across the board to reflect conservatism." Among his baseline industry assumptions is the expectation for fewer fare increases by low cost carriers due to lower oil prices. United's unit revenue momentum is likely to slow meaningfully through fiscal 2020, resulting in shares trading at similar valuations as American Airlines (AAL), Derchin tells investors in a research note.

ExpressJet sale 'hugely positive' for SkyWest shares, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Helane Becker says SkyWest's (SKYW) sale of ExpressJet to United Airlines joint venture ManaAir will remove a "significant overhang" for SkyWest as ExpressJet has been a drag on profitability for since the acquisition. The sale is "hugely positive" for SkyWest shares, Becker tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees improved profitability of the company going forward. She also views the transaction as neutral for United Continental (UAL) shares. SkyWest is up 4% to $46.64 in early trading while United Continental is up 3% to $88.63.

AMD addition to Nasdaq-100 a 'small near-term positive', says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mitch Steves notes the addition of AMD (AMD) to the Nasdaq-100 index announced late on Friday, which also contained the inclusion of lululemon (LULU), NetApp (NTAP), United Continental Holdings (UAL), VeriSign (VRSN) and Willis Towers Watson (WLTW) and the subtraction of Express Scripts Holding (ESRX), Hologic (HOLX), Qurate Retail (QRTEA), Shire (SHPG), Seagate Technology (STX) and Vodafone Plc (VOD). The analyst believes that the change - which will become effective before the market open on December 24th - could act as a "small near-term positive" for AMD shares, even though it does not change its fundamentals. Longer term, the analyst keeps his Outperform rating and $34 price target on AMD, but warns that the company is faced with a crypto currency downdraft in the Gaming segment and that he is also cautious on the hyperscale spending trends next year which he estimates in the low single digits. Steves adds that the notable investor debate is also taking place around the AMD server average selling prices, which he sees coming in around $5,400 - the higher end of the more bullish forecasts of $5K-$6K vs. the bears' estimate around $4K.

Morgan Stanley analyst Rajeev Lalwani said that contrary to the reaction in Delta Air Lines' shares, the company did not have a bad investor day. The market may have anticipated more aggressive FY19 EPS guidance, but he views the company's outlook of $6.00-7.00 as being "realistic and achievable," said Lalwani. The analyst, who sees a number of initiatives and improvements ahead on the revenue side and believes Delta's cost management efforts are on track, reiterates his Overweight rating and $68 price target on Delta shares.
