Underperform
Jefferies says sell L Brands 'aggressively' after analysis shows elevated promos
Jefferies analyst Randal Konik says his updated analysis of Victoria's Secret and Pink discounts shows elevated promotion levels "that indicate share loss is mounting." Victoria's Secret panty prices are at record lows, bringing back swim is not the answer, and key products are continuing to be promoted, Konik tells investors in a research note. The analyst's estimates for L Brands remain below consensus and he continues to believe Victoria's Secret and Pink will continue to erode while Bath & Body Works "is rolling over." Konik would "sell shares aggressively" and keeps an Underperform rating on L Brands with a $16 price target.

L Brands separation not best path to shareholder value, says Barclays
After Barington Capital suggested L Brands consider a potential spin-off of Victoria's Secret or an initial public offering of Bath & Body Works, Barclays analyst Chethan Mallela says he does not think a separation is the best path to achieve value creation for shareholders. The analyst, however, continues to view L Brands as undervalued and sees "ample opportunity for value creation." His sum-of-the-parts analysis suggests a possible multiple arbitrage benefit, but with potentially "sizeable risk." Even "without aggressive multiples," he calculates a potential sum-of-the-parts range of $26-$36 per share. However, Mallela believes a separation comes with "significant transaction risk." He sees a combined L Brands as better positioned for value creation. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the name with a $31 price target.

UPGRADE

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Hertz (HTZ) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays with analyst Brian Johnson saying strength in used car and rental car prices creates a favorable backdrop for Hertz to refinance its corporate debt. 2. L Brands (LB) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Chethan Mallela saying the company's fiscal 2019 guidance should establish an earnings "floor," which creates an "increasingly positive" risk/reward for the shares. 3. Kraft Heinz (KHC) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Societe Generale. 4. Edison International (EIX) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith saying he sees progress by the California legislature to address utilities' current status of "insurer of last resort," potentially allowing a recovery in Edison shares. 5. Expedia (EXPE) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak citing the company's "strong" Q4 results, anticipated 10%-15% adjusted EBITDA growth in 2019, the management's optimism about continued international expansion, and its attractive valuation at 17.9-times his expected forward earnings. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
