General Mills call volume spikes on diagonal spread ahead of earnings

General Mills call volume spikes on diagonal spread ahead of earnings. Shares near $47.43 this morning with call volume 19x normal after a large diagonal trades on the PHLX where a customer paid 68c to roll nearly 15K April 47.5 calls out to October 50s. Trade history shows the trader opened the April 47.5 calls last September when shares fell about $4 after earnings, paying $1.56 vs $43.80 stock. Today's roll books small gains on those, and renews a long view over the next six months. Earnings tomorrow morning, straddle implies move near 3%, below the median and well below year-ago 9% gap. Spread tied to 180K shares $47.35.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Garmin (GRMN) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Longbow with analyst Nikolay Todorov saying its upside potential is limited by valuation following a 17% rally in the stock price yesterday. 2. Biogen (BIIB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Paul Matteis saying the stock has been "remarkably resilient" in the wake of two recent events - Roche's (RHHBY) crenezumab futility and Tecfidera's inter partes review institution. However, both these events "imply elevated risk to the long-term bull case." 3. Faro Technologies (FARO) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Craig-Hallum with analyst Greg Palm citing increasing risks to the company's near term growth and margin targets. 4. D.R. Horton (DHI) and Lennar (LEN) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush. 5. General Mills (GIS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Standpoint Research. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Deutsche Bank upgrades General Mills to Buy on stabilizing base business
Deutsche Bank analyst Rob Dickerson upgraded General Mills to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $54 from $43. Although the stock is up 20% year-to-date, pressure still exists in the company's snack bar and soup categories, and divestment dilution risk looms, Dickerson tells investors in a research note. However, he believes the core U.S. base business at General Mills "seems to have stabilized" and that the opportunity with Blue Buffalo "remains underappreciated." He sees some reluctance by investors to buy General Mills' shares despite strengthening U.S. retail data trends and margin-accretive distribution and share gain potential with pet at Walmart. The analyst believes share upside potential exists.

Snap (SNAP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Richard Greenfield citing the "surge in spending in North America on Snapchat from advertisers," who are increasingly focused on its "compelling" return on investment. 3. Hilton (HLT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying the company should see above-peer-average earnings growth over time thanks to its "asset-light business model, in which it franchises rather than owns hotels." 4. Forum Energy (FET) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Scott Gruber saying the company has made free cash flow a priority and believes it can generate $100M annually. 5. Petrobras (PBR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at HSBC. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
