Stephens reiterates Union Pacific as a best idea for 2019 after pre-announcement

After Union Pacific upwardly revised its margin expectation for 2018 following the close yesterday, Stephens analyst Justin Long called the pre-announcement "another encouraging development" after Monday's news of the hiring of PSR veteran Jim Vena as its new COO. Long reiterated the stock as his best idea for 2019 and keeps an Overweight rating and $170 price target on the shares.

Stephens says Vena hire should ease concerns of those skeptical of Union Pacific
After Union Pacific (UNP) announced that it has named Jim Vena, who most recently served as EVP and COO at Canadian National (CNI), as its new Chief Operating Officer, Stephens analyst Justin Long said he views the hiring positively and believes it will help ease concerns of those who were skeptical about Union's ability to successfully execute its new plan. Long, who said Vena's hiring increase his confidence that Union Pacific can deliver on its new Unified Plan 2020, keeps an Overweight rating and $170 price target on the stock, which he maintains as his 2019 Best Idea.

Seaport Global upgrades Union Pacific to Buy after COO hiring boosts confidence
As previously reported, Seaport Global analyst Mark Levin upgraded Union Pacific to Buy from Neutral after the company announced that it had hired Jim Vena as COO to help implement precision scheduled railroading. "While Vena may not be Hunter Harrison," the pioneer of PSR, his addition at Union Pacific significantly increases the likelihood of a successful transformation to PSR, Levin tells investors. Greater investor confidence that Union will eventually reach a 55%-60% operating ratio should help propel the stock, added Levin, who set a $165 price target on the shares.

UPGRADE

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Voya Financial (VOYA) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs analyst Alex Scott saying the company is well positioned to manage through the pullback in equity markets and still hit its targets of 10%-plus earnings growth. 2. Cheesecake Factory (CAKE) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Brian Vaccaro citing better than expected industry sales. 3. Union Pacific (UNP) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen, to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital and Scotiabank, and to Buy from Neutral at Seaport Global. 4. Monster Beverage (MNST) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst William Chappell saying after the recent declines in input costs and the "successful U.S. pricing actions," consensus expectations for the stock are too low, while the concerns over its partnership with Coca-Cola (KO) and challenges around growth in China are "overblown." 5. Molina Healthcare (MOH) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at both JPMorgan and MUFG. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
