Clorox enters partnership with AutoNation

Clorox Professional Products (CLX) is proud to announce that it has partnered with AutoNation (AN) to introduce PrecisionCare powered by Clorox Total 360, a revolutionary sanitizing system designed to enable cleaner, healthier, safer vehicles. The innovative system uses patented electrostatic technology combined with Clorox products to quickly and easily kill 19 of the most common illness-causing germs. American drivers spend an average of more than 47 minutes each day and 294 hours each year behind the wheel, but few realize that vehicle interiors can be hotbeds for germs. In one report, swab-testing found more microorganisms on seat belts, door handles and window buttons in rideshare vehicles and on the steering wheel, gear shift and seat belts in rental cars than on public restroom surfaces. Even in private vehicles, researchers have found an average of 700 bacteria per 10 square centimeters in car interiors, more than eight times the average found on public restroom surfaces. Through the partnership, PrecisionCare powered by Clorox Total 360 will be available to customers at more than 240 AutoNation locations coast to coast. PrecisionCare powered by Clorox Total 360 will also be available to auto dealers, repair shops, rental car companies, professional fleets and livery services through AutoNation's Wholesale Parts Network, which provides both OEM and aftermarket solutions to its customers. The introduction of the product in the marketplace will begin in the first quarter of 2019.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. MCDONALD'S UPGRADED TO BUY: Guggenheim analyst Matthew DiFrisco upgraded McDonald's (MCD) to Buy from Neutral with a $200 price target as he believes the shares valuation discount to large cap peers has widened to an "unjustifiable" level given his outlook for stable to improving same-store sales and greater free cash flow generation. DEUTSCHE CUTS CONSUMER STAPLES STOCKS TO SELL: Deutsche Bank analyst Steve Powers downgraded Clorox (CLX), Church & Dwight (CHD) and Kimberly-Clark (KMB) to Sell from Hold and lowered his price targets to $123, $51, and $99, respectively. While investor appetite for defensive names remains elevated, the fundamental challenges facing Consumer Packaged Goods companies are "somewhat underappreciated," Powers believes. The analyst believes currency and emerging market volatility will pressure numbers in the near-term, while structural competitive and retail pressures will challenge momentum longer-term. PIPER STARTS MICRON AT NEUTRAL: Piper Jaffray analyst Harsh Kumar initiated coverage of Micron Technology (MU) with a Neutral rating and $48 price target. The analyst awaits more clarity surrounding the mid-term dynamics of the memory cycle before getting more constructive on the shares. The memory market as a whole has experienced favorable trends over the last few years, Kumar said. However, given the cyclical nature of the memory market, the analyst prefers to remain on the sidelines until he has a better grasp of the cycle. JPMORGAN ADDS DROPBOX TO FOCUS LIST: JPMorgan analyst Mark Murphy added Dropbox (DBX) to his firm's Analyst Focus List while keeping an Overweight rating on the shares with a $35 price target. While not convinced the "seven-day-old growth tech selloff is over," the analyst sees an improving risk/reward on Dropbox shares and potential for 30%-50% outperformance. He believes investors are "underestimating the stability and consistency of the Dropbox engine," and are overlooking the launch and adoption of its Premium plans. JPMORGAN SAYS GE TURBINE ISSUES MAY BE WORSE THAN THOUGHT: Recently published feedback from a General Electric (GE) H-frame user group event suggests more serious technology issues with the new flagship product, JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa said. While most of the focus has been on the technology around the blades, the event indicates a "myriad of shortfalls in other parts of the turbine that we find hard not to consider 'technology flaws,'" Tusa said. Tusa kept an Underweight rating on shares of General Electric.

Clorox price target raised to $160 from $145 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Lee Herzog raised her price target for Clorox to $160 from $145 to reflect a higher ''flight to quality'' premium multiple after the company hosted a meeting for sell side analysts. The analyst notes that management's tone was positive and she came away with a better appreciation of Clorox's solid execution as it appears to be controlling what it can control by aggressively leading with pricing, leaning into cost savings, and delivering a strong F2H innovation slate. Nonetheless, Herzog reiterates a Market Perform rating on the shares as she sees few near-term catalysts to drive valuation higher.

Clorox price target raised to $175 from $165 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Shannon Coyne raised his price target on Clorox to $175 and kept his Outperform rating after its Q2 earnings beat and affirmed FY19 guidance. The analyst notes that the company's gross margin expansion was "faster than expected" and sees the management's outlook as "conservative" in light of the "softening commodity pressures and low expectations in Household" sector. Coyne also raises his FY19 EPS outlook to $6.40 from $6.32 to reflect the latest results.

Carvana price target cut to $40 at Craig-Hallum after CarMax omni-channel news
After CarMax (KMX) announced a new omni-channel offering to allow consumers to buy a car completely from home, in-store or a combination, Craig-Hallum analyst Steve Dyer said he believes the hybrid brick-and-mortar and e-commerce platform could be the "ideal solution" for changing consumer demands. He also believes the news could put pressure on Carvana (CVNA) shares in the near-term. CarMax, which Dyer notes is the largest used vehicle retailer, is the latest competitor to increase focus on e-commerce following recent investments by Lithia (LAD) in Shift and AutoNation (AN) in Vroom, the analyst added. Dyer keeps a Hold rating on Carvana and lowered his price target on the stock to $40 from $48 to account for greater competitive threats.

AutoNation initiated with an Underweight at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Rajat Gupta started AutoNation with an Underweight rating and $40 price target. The analyst initiated coverage on the U.S. Auto Dealership sector with a balanced view on the industry but a more constructive view on the stocks. However, he says AutoNation trades at a "premium" valuation despite the potential for "heavy investments" to weigh on earnings. Gupta also believes the company offers "relatively less downturn resiliency" versus peers.
