American Airlines pilots to test Boeing 737 MAX software fix, Reuters says

Pilots from American Airlines (AAL) are scheduled to test Boeing's (BA) 737 MAX software fix on simulators this weekend, says Reuters, citing comments from the pilot union. "Boeing has been working on a software upgrade for an anti-stall system and pilot displays on its fastest-selling jetliner in the wake of the deadly Lion Air crash in Indonesia in October," added the Reuters report.

American Airlines should look to buy Hawaiian Airlines, says Wolfe Research
Wolfe Research analyst Hunter Keay made the case for American Airlines (AAL) to acquire Hawaiian Airlines (HA), telling investors in a research note that a deal would give back to American the domestic share it's lost since 2015. Keay sees a purchase price of $40 per share for Hawaiian, with American funding a deal through a mix of cash and stock. He thinks American could finance a $3.1B acquisition with $1B in stock and $1B in cash, and thinks a purchase would give American an inside track on bids for slots at Tokyo's Haneda International Airport and better access to a high value vacation market frequented by high income travelers.

Morgan Stanley says 737 MAX grounding shouldn't hurt long-term fundamentals
Morgan Stanley analyst Rajeev Lalwani noted that most major countries and airlines that operate Boeing's (BA) 737 MAX, except for the U.S. and Canada, have placed restrictions around the plane and his expectation is for a grounding of the fleet globally. In that base case, he said there is likely to be disruption to Boeing's deliveries and order activity that ultimately create a buying opportunity over the coming quarters as he thinks the issue should not impact fundamentals in the long run. In regard to suppliers such as Spirit AeroSystems (SPR) and United Technologies (UTX), Lalwani believes disruption will be limited, contrary to market reactions. Among U.S. airlines who operate the 737 MAX, Lalwani said Southwest (LUV) screens as most exposed versus American Airlines (AAL) and United Continental (UAL). For aircraft lessors like Air Lease (AL) and AerCap (AER), a global grounding scenario has "mixed implications," added the analyst. Though he remains comfortable with his Overweight rating and $500 price target on Boeing shares, Lalwani thinks clarity on the path ahead for the 737 will be needed for shares to resume their upward trend.

American Airlines shares offer attractive risk/reward, says Imperial Capital
Imperial Capital analyst Michael Derchin says shares of American Airlines offer an attractive risk/reward opportunity and current levels.

United Continental shares offer unfavorable risk/reward, says Imperial Capital
Imperial Capital analyst Michael Derchin says shares of United Continental Holdings (UAL) offer an unfavorable risk/reward opportunity at current levels. United's unit revenue momentum is likely to slow meaningfully and possibly inflect to negative territory by the second half of 2019, Derchin tells investors in a research note. The shares are trading at nearly a 40% premium to American Airlines (AAL) on fiscal 2020 earnings estimates despite relatively similar margin outlooks, adds the analyst. He keeps an Underperform rating on United Continental with a $78 price target.

Argus sees MAX investigation capping Boeing multiple, downgrades to Hold
As previously reported, Argus analyst John Eade downgraded Boeing to Hold from Buy, stating that he believes company management has not been particularly proactive in its response to two fatal crashes involving the 737 Max jet. He thinks the investigation is likely to cap multiples, and that earnings forecasts are likely to decline, as the probe plays out. While his dividend discount model points to a fair value above $460, Eade sees the shares as subject to downward pressure as the investigation continues, he tells investors.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. ImmunoGen (IMGN) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jessica Fye saying the failure of Forward I is a "meaningful setback" for the mirvetuximab development program. 2. Vertex (VRTX) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at SVB Leerink with analyst Geoffrey Porges citing the slower ramp of the company's cystic fibrosis products in Europe, the already high expectations priced into the stock and the limited near-term opportunities and catalysts from the company's pipeline. 3. iRobot (IRBT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Needham with analyst James Ricchiuti stating the market appears to be pricing in expectations of "meaningful upside" to the company's 2019 guidance after the run-up in its stock price this year. 4. Yum! Brands (YUM) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst John Ivankoe saying the 9% year-to-date run in shares leaves little upside to estimates. 5. Boeing (BA) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst John Eade stating that he believes company management has not been particularly proactive in its response to two fatal crashes involving the 737 Max jet.

Southwest price target lowered to $49 from $54 at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Catherine O'Brien lowered her price target on Southwest (LUV) to $49 and kept her Sell rating, saying there is increased risk to the company's 2019 earnings outlook. The analyst cites the company's contract issues with the the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association, which she estimates to have reduced capacity by about 1.5% for the airline due to maintenance related cancellations. O'Brien also notes that Southwest has lost revenue from the recent grounding of Boeing's (BA) 737 Max8 aircraft.
