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.

Atmos Energy downgraded to Neutral on valuation at UBS
UBS analyst Shneur Gershuni last night downgraded Atmos Energy to Neutral from Buy with an unchanged price target of $106. The current valuation reflects the company's "best-in-class metrics," Gershuni tells investors in a research note. Year-to-date Atmos Energy's stock price has outperformed the gas distribution average by 512 basis points out, the analyst points out.

Atmos Energy supported by rising demand for natural gas, says Argus
Argus analyst Gary Hovis kept his Buy rating and $101 price target on Atmos Energy, saying the company stands to benefit from "the nation's increasing demand for natural gas." The analyst is also positive on the company's track record of "successful" acquisitions and integration of gas utilities, along with its "low operating costs, improved rate structures, and profitable non-regulated operations." Hovis further cites his expected benefits to Atmos from the more favorable gas rate regulation backdrop and its "growing customer base", raising his FY19 EPS view by 10c to $4.25 per share.

Encana downgraded to Equal Weight on Newfield deal risk at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Benny Wong downgraded Encana (ECA) to Equal Weight from Overweight, stating that he gives 50% credit to the targeted $250M in synergies the company outlined in its announcement of its deal to buy Newfield Exploration (NFX), but not the other half since Encana's Cube approach has not been tried before in the STACK/SCOOP play. The OKC play comes with concern around inventory quality and higher gas-oil ratios, added Wong, who now views Encana as a "show me" story. He lowered his price target on Encana shares to $15 from $19 and also raised his price target on Newfield shares to $31 to $23.

Mizuho initiates seven 'exciting' E&P stocks
Mizuho analyst Paul Sankey expanded his coverage of the E&P, or exploration and production, sector with the initiation of seven U.S.-focused, liquids-weighted E&Ps. Sankey initiated Concho Resources (CXO), Continental Resources (CLR), and Diamondback Energy (FANG) with Buy ratings, and Cimarex Energy Company (XEC), Encana Corporation (ECA), Parsley Energy (PE), and WPX Energy (WPX) with Neutral ratings. The analyst views each of these names as quality operators at varying stages in the transition to "Renaissance E&P." He believes "sustainable cash return growth is the key to making E&Ps competitive, not just relative to their history, but to the broader market," and sees his three Buy-rated names as the furthest along this process.
