Williams reports Q4 adjusted EPS 19c, consensus 24c

Williams reported Q4 adjusted EBITDA of $1.197B, a $37M increase from Q4 of last year. Its current guidance for 2019, originally announced on May 17, 2018, remains unchanged with the exception of growth capital expenditures. Growth capital expenditure guidance has increased from prior guidance of $2.6B to $2.7B-$2.9B primarily due to timing shifts from 2018 to 2019. The company said, "Once again in 2018, our consistent natural gas-focused strategy delivered as expected with solid and predictable growth. In fact, our 2018 Adjusted EBITDA was a new record even in the face of asset sales totaling $4.6 billion over the past two and a half years that dramatically reduced commodity exposure and improved leverage metrics for WMB. Thanks to strong execution by our teams, we again delivered at the top end of the range for nearly all of our key guidance metrics for the year. Bringing the Atlantic Sunrise project online and dramatically increasing gathering volumes in our Northeast G&P segment were just a couple of the many achievements during the year. The quality and predictability of our cash flows, even in times of commodity swings, combined with the accelerating demand for natural gas, point to continued growth for us in 2019 as we enjoyed strong execution on all of our major projects in 2018 and the beginning of 2019."

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. MetLife (MET) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Jay Cohen saying quality concerns are diminishing as management addresses past issues and believes the business mix has notably changed for the positive following the Brighthouse spin. 2. ING Group (ING) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Societe Generale. 3. Williams (WMB) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays analyst Christine Cho saying the company is now positioned to reduce leverage at an accelerated pace and internally fund incremental growth projects and/or return capital to shareholders in a more meaningful way. 4. Accenture (ACN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Ashwin Shirvaikar saying against a backdrop of rising political and policy risks, a more defensive Information Technology Services stance is appropriate. 5. Nutanix (NTNX) and Teradata (TDC) were upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Hold
DCP Midstream downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Christopher Sighinolfi downgraded DCP Midstream (DCP) to Hold, from Buy, citing valuation following early year-to-date gains. While he is still bullish on U.S. Midstream, he favors defensive names with contracted 2019-20 cash flow growth supported by pending asset in-services, such as Williams (WMB), Equitrans Midstream (ETRN) and Enterprise Products (EPD), Sighinolfi tells investors.
