Underperform
GE could shift to GAAP accounting, causing stock drop, says Gordon Haskett
New General Electric (GE) CEO Larry Culp likely has every intention of establishing a 2019 guidance framework that the company can actually achieve, which would be welcomed by investors after years of "non-credible GE guidance, perpetual exaggerations, opaque disclosure and aggressive accounting," Gordon Haskett analyst John Inch told investors earlier in a research note titled "Move to GAAP could drive stock hit." The analyst has an Underperform rating on General Electric with a $7 price target. The stock in morning trading is down 33c to $8.83. He believes Larry Culp, in contrast with previous CEO John Flannery, is going to want to set a guidance bar that GE "can at least hit." In turn, while GE may not be able to adopt more conservative accounting while under government investigation, a move to GAAP would at least demonstrate Culp's directional willingness to abandon the "inflated and exaggerated earnings presentation practices of the past," says Inch. However, if GE were to move to GAAP accounting, its share price would move lower, driven by a lower GAAP impact on consensus, the analyst contends. Further, GE's accounting could still be viewed as aggressive under a GAAP presentation framework, adds Inch. As such, he thinks subsequent future restatements from the adoption of more conservative accounting "could readily ensue." Inch also sees risks in GE's revised deal with Wabtec deal (WAB).

Hold
Wabtec initiated with a Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Saree Boroditsky started Wabtec (WAB) with a Hold rating and $80 price target. The analyst views Wabtec as a "solid" long-term industrial, but is cautious on entering the stock given the potential negative impact on equipment demand from Precision Scheduled Railroading adoption and the "technical overhang" created by the GE (GE) Transportation merger closing next week.

UBS boosts General Electric target to $13, sees fading leverage concerns
UBS analyst Peter Lennox-King raised his price target for General Electric (GE) to $13 from $12 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. The stock closed yesterday up 6%, or 65c, to $10.82. With net proceeds of $20.5B from the BioPharma unit sale to Danaher (DHR), $2.9B in cash from Wabtec (WAB), $3.8B in new Wabtec shares, and $13B in Baker Hughes (BHGE) shares, GE has assets "well beyond" the $30B of Industrial debt reduction targeted last month, Lennox-King tells investors in a research note. This comes while the company retains ownership of ~$3B in Healthcare EBITDA, adds the analyst, who now could even envision a scenario of year-end 2020 leverage of below two times. As leverage concerns fade, Lennox-King expects investor focus to shift to GE's "fundamental turnaround."

Overweight
GE free cash flow outlook 'battered but largely intact,' says Barclays
Despite lowering his headline and free cash flow estimates for General Electric following the company's 2019, Barclays analyst Julian Mitchell still thinks $6.5B-$7.0B of Industrial free cash flow looks attainable for 2021. However, GE's equity value is likely to remain volatile given the range of expectations, Mitchell tells investors in a research note titled "FCF outlook battered but largely intact; Divestments cover Capital risk." The analyst hopes that the evaluation of "all options" to de-risk GE Capital leads to more meaningful outcomes than the stated effort to "leverage EFS capabilities to enable Industrial orders." He keeps an Overweight rating on shares of General Electric with an unchanged price target of $13.

JPMorgan's Tusa downgrades General Electric to Underweight with $5 price target
JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa downgraded General Electric to Underweight from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $5 from $6. The stock in premarket trading is down 6.5%, or 65c, to $9.36. With the stock up 38% year-to-date, many investors are underestimating the severity of the challenges and underlying risks at GE, while overestimating the value of "small positives," Tusa tells investors in a research note partially titled "Risk/Reward Reset." The analyst believes the Street is "significantly over projecting" the bounce in free cash flow at GE in the coming years, off levels that he calculates at zero currently. Power/Renewables "remains weak," General Electric Capital Services "will likely consume material cash for the foreseeable future," Aviation fundamentals, as per underlying free cash flow, are "weaker than meet the eye," contends Tusa. Further he believes GE's "lingering sector high leverage" leaves it "vulnerable to liquidity issues in the event of a recession."

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. General Electric (GE) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Stephen Tusa saying with the stock up 38% year-to-date, many investors are underestimating the severity of the challenges and underlying risks at GE, while overestimating the value of "small positives." 2. Starbucks (SBUX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Dennis Geiger saying the risk/reward on shares "appears balanced" with the stock up 55% since June. 3. Boeing (BA) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ronald Epstein citing the company's announcement that it will cut 737 production rates to 42 per month from 52 per month, which he takes to likely mean that the 737 delay could last longer than previously expected. 4. Micron (MU) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen with analyst Karl Ackerman saying his field work indicates Micron's profitability will decline again in calendar year 2020. 5. Roku (ROKU) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst Mark May saying the stock is up 110% year-to-date and near all-time highs.
