Walmart hiring 'hundreds' of truck drivers, raising salaries, CNBC reports

Walmart is hiring "hundreds" of truck drivers to fill out its fleet in 2019, CNBC reports. As the low unemployment rate and the job's challenging on-the-road lifestyle mean there are fewer workers interested in taking these roles, Walmart is upping the ante by raising driver salaries to $87,500, on average, beginning next month, according to the report. Walmart is also offering drivers three weeks of paid time-off in a driver's first year and quarterly bonuses for safe driving, CNBC says. Reference Link

Outperform
Synchrony upgraded to Outperform at Oppenheimer
As previously reported, Oppenheimer analyst Dominick Gabriele upgraded Synchrony (SYF) to Outperform from Perform, with a $43 price target. Even with the stock trading up 10.73% on the Sam's Club renewal, a segment of Walmart (WMT), the analyst still sees one of the most depressed relative valuations in his coverage due to the "going out of business effect." Thus, Gabriele expects a prolonged trend of relative outperformance in the shares given clearer EPS visibility and ROE trajectory. Synchrony could trend back to at least its average relative P/E discount to financials of about 74%, which implies a "stunning" 46% upside, he contends.

Overweight
Stephens says Capital One purchase of Walmart portfolio likely positive for TSYS
Capital One (COF) previously announced last quarter that it would issue new Walmart cards, but its announcement last night that it will buy the Walmart card portfolio from Synchrony (SYF) should mean that cards will be re-issued and that interchange and other fees associated with spending on those cards will, once converted, accrue to Capital One, explained Stephens analyst Brett Huff. As Capital One's card issuing processor, the news is likely a positive for TSYS (TSS), added Huff, who estimates this could equate to $15M a year, or about 40bps, of extra TSS net revenue growth and 4c, or an extra 1%, of pro forma EPS growth. While noting that he has worries about TSYS' guidance for FY19, Huff reiterates an Overweight rating and $96 price target on TSYS shares.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Walmart (WMT) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Simeon Gutman citing his belief that Walmart U.S. can now generate sales growth without sacrificing margins, unlike most retailers. 2. Teva (TEVA) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS and to Neutral from Underweight at Piper Jaffray. 3. D.R. Horton (DHI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Mizuho with analyst Haendel St. Juste saying stock selectivity is becoming more important in these latter stages of the housing cycle and larger platforms with price point diversification and strong balance sheets will be rewarded. 4. Logitech (LOGI) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan and to Hold from Sell at Maxim. 5. Lamb Weston (LW) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Christopher Growe saying he is confident in the "growth profile of the business continuing amidst the very strong operating conditions in the category." This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Outperform
Capital One price target lowered to $102 from $109 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Moshe Orenbuch lowered his price target for Capital One (COF) to $102 from $109 following quarterly results. The analyst views the high level of expenses without revenue visibility as negative, and management establishing an overhead ratio target excluding marketing as allowing for too much variability in estimates. On the positive side, Orenbuch is encouraged by the acquisition of the Walmart (WMT) portfolio, which should be able to drive revenue and earnings upside starting from 2020, while offering Capital One "tremendous" credit protection. He reiterates an Outperform rating on Capital One shares.
