FTC officials seem to spotlight Facebook, Amazon for scrutiny, says Cowen
After FTC Chairman Joe Simons and Competition Bureau Director Bruce Hoffman spoke at the American Bar Association's annual antitrust conference on Friday, Cowen analyst Paul Gallant said his read of some of Simons' comments on "consummated mergers" is that they seem directed toward Facebook (FB) deals like Instagram and Whatsapp and/or Google's (GOOGL) past ad tech acquisitions. Hoffman "also seemed to lean forward on tech," said Gallant, who sees some of Hoffman's comments on a prior ruling about American Express (AXP) as making Amazon (AMZN) more of an antitrust target than he expected. The analyst also noted that Sarah Oxenham-Allen, Chair of the State Attorney Generals Task Force on Antitrust, spoke at the event and he sees her comments as underscoring that state AGs are a "legitimate threat" on antitrust and privacy for Facebook and Google.

Airlines needed some good news, and Delta delivered, says Stephens
With investor sentiment on the airline space negative, the group was in need of some good news and Delta Air Lines delivered a positive surprise this morning, Stephens analyst Jack Atkins tells investors in a research note. The airline pointed Q1 RASM growth to the upper-end of its initial guidance range, lowered its Q1 CASM excluding fuel expectation and raised its Q1 earnings guidance range, says the analyst. Atkins finds it encouraging that Delta noted underlying passenger demand remains solid and that the business market led the way during the quarter. Further, the company announced an extension of its credit card partnership with American Express (AXP), which is expected to double the revenue contribution to $7B by 2023 versus 2018 levels, he notes. Atkins reiterates an Overweight rating on Delta with a $63 price target. The stock in midday trading is up 7% to $55.64. Other names in the airline space include Alaska Air (ALK), American Airlines (AAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV), Spirit Airlines (SAVE) and United Continental (UAL).

Honeywell weakness offers buying opportunity, says Argus
Argus analyst John Eade kept his Buy rating and $180 price target on Honeywell, saying the stock's recent weakness offers a buying opportunity. The analyst notes the recent 10% slide from the highs in the shares because of tariff related concerns, but believes that the company can "generate low double-digit earnings growth over the next five years", benefiting from "diverse product lines as well as presence in the commercial aerospace and commercial construction markets." Eade adds that while China infrastructure growth is slowing, Honeywell's "mid-market" product sales in the country are growing.

GE risk/reward unfavorable into Q4 report, says JPMorgan's Tusa
JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa says the risk/reward on shares of General Electric (GE) is unfavorable into the company's Q4 earnings report. GE shares have bounced over the last month, outperforming the group by over 3,000 basis points, Tusa writes in a research note previewing earnings reports for the group. He believes the recent stock move "is built upon an expectation of more certainty in the path forward." Tusa thinks the focus on the earnings call should turn back to fundamentals, where he continues to see "disconnect with high level analyses from those who apparently ignore the mechanical headwinds from dilutive asset sales, a key aspect as to why FCF remains so weak." The call will "reinforce the Bear case that there is no concrete silver bullet plan, and much remains fluid, also negative," Tusa contends. He recommends Honeywell (HON) and Emerson Electric (EMR) as longs into the quarter and tells investors to avoid Johnson Controls (JCI), 3M (MMM) and Rockwell Automation (ROK). Tusa has a Neutral rating on General Electric.

Deutsche Bank makes 'Catalyst Call' to buy Honeywell, sell 3M
Deutsche Bank analyst Nicole DeBlase is making a "Catalyst Call" to buy shares of Honeywell (HON) and sell shares of 3M (MMM). The analyst sees continued potential for earnings beats and full year guidance raises from Honeywell given its "attractive exposure" to late-cycle end markets. These include, according to the analyst, aerospace and defense and non-residential construction, along with secular growth drivers such as warehouse automation. On the other hand, DeBlase forecasts a "substantial" 4% earnings miss in Q1 for 3M. The company is exposed to a number of end markets that have faced quarter-over-quarter deterioration, including automotive and electronics and China, the analyst tells investors in a research note. She does not view even the low end of 3M's guidance as achievable. Moreover, she points out that 3M is the most expensive stock she covers. DeBlase has a Buy rating on Honeywell with a Sell rating on 3M.

Ally buyback approval significantly higher than estimated, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck noted that Fed CCAR instructions released on February 5 exempted banks with assets between $100B-$250B from the 2019 stress test, which meant that Ally Financial did not need to wait for Fed approval in June to announced that its board authorized the repurchase of up to $1.25B in common stock for 3Q19-2Q20. This $1.25B authorization is significantly higher than her $560M estimate, said Graseck, who raised her 2020 EPS estimate for Ally by 14c, or 3.5%, in response to the news. Graseck keeps an Equal Weight rating on Ally shares.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Exact Sciences (EXAS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs by analyst Patrick Donnelly, who said the current momentum of the Cologuard commercial ramp provides "strong basis" for the company's premium valuation while the combination of positive Cologuard catalysts and new product roll-outs provide upside to current levels, even after the stock's 75% rally since the beginning of 2018. Exact Sciences is a "must-own growth stock" given the "clean runway forward that is largely in its control with potential for discovery value in the pipeline outside of Cologuard," the analyst said. 2. Siemens (SIEGY) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst Andreas Willi, who sees a relative valuation opportunity after the stock's 27% underperformance over the past two years. He believes investor sentiment can improve "after a period where the story has drifted." 3. Kadmon (KDMN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi by analyst Robyn Karnauskas, who assigned a 50% probability to KD-025 in chronic graft versus host disease with an unadjusted ~$900M market opportunity. However, upside to the stock will depend on quality of the data likely, Karnauskas said. 4. EverQuote (EVER) upgraded to Buy following Q4 beat at BofA/Merrill by analyst Mat Schindler, who said user growth has re-accelerated, supporting evidence of a turnaround, and thinks estimates are conservative and views the risk/reward as attractive. 5. Ally Financial (ALLY) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Sandler O'Neill by analyst Christopher Donat, who said he believes Ally's near-prime auto finance book is "meaningfully less risky" than Santander Consumer's (SC) book or the unsecured credit cards of Discover (DFS) and Capital One (COF), yet all four stocks trade at similar multiples.

The analyst, who also thinks a potential C-Corp conversion could unlock value in 2019, keeps an Overweight rating and $42 price target on Blackstone, adding that he thinks the shares could trade near $38 in the near-term if the market begins to assign higher odds to such a C-Corp change.

The analyst states that Blackstone is seeing "sees considerable growth in real estate, private equity, infrastructure, tactical opportunities and credit assets", adding that while the $1T target is "aggressive", it is also achievable, requiring "continuing cooperative economic environment and fundraising efforts". Biggar also anticipates Blackstone's "fee-related earnings component to grow significantly over the next two years" as its flagship funds reach key milestones, helping reduce earnings volatility and yielding "more consistent" dividend payouts.

Mizuho initiates security software with top picks Palo Alto, CyberArk, Rapid7
Mizuho analyst Gregg Moskowitz initiated coverage of nine Security Software companies. In his industry update note, titled "Welcome to the New Age of Software - Part II," he noted that "macro concerns remain very prevalent and 4Q tech fundamentals were uneven," but added that he expects "security companies will navigate these issues well, due in part to the fact that cybersecurity consistently ranks at or near the top of IT spending priorities by CIOs." The analyst concluded that "while hardly immune, we would expect security spend to be relatively resilient." Moskowitz noted that global security revenue is currently well in excess of $40B, and growing at a roughly high-single digit CAGR. However, Moskowitz also noted that the security market is very fragmented and contains many sub-segments. He sees four security themes that he believes will become increasingly important, and should help to underpin healthy growth in the sector in the coming years -- Zero Trust, Identity Management, Next-gen Endpoint, and Machine Learning/Automation. The analyst expects to see "generally similar levels of security M&A activity in 2019," although he noted that one variable that could cause this to skew higher would be a large security vendor takeout, which is a historical rarity. Moskowitz initiated three stocks with Buy ratings -- Palo Alto Networks (PANW), CyberArk Software (CYBR), and Rapid7 (RPD) -- and six stocks with Neutral ratings -- Check Point Software (CHKP), FireEye (FEYE), Fortinet (FTNT), Okta (OKTA), Proofpoint (PFPT), and Symantec (SYMC).

Further, Eyal points out that cloud continues to garner greater mindshare via CloudGuard/Dome9, easier year over year comps still provide a decent set-up, and Check Point's momentum seems supported by a still healthy IT spending environment.

While loan growth has begun to improve from the lows, a lack of additional interest rate hikes, along with more exposure to consumer deposits continuing to re-price higher, likely means that the company's margins will begin to compress beyond Q1, Nash tells investors in a research note. He believes this will "pressure" consensus estimates. In the Regional Banks space, the analyst is most upbeat on Signature Bank (SBNY), Citizens Financial (CFG) and Cadence Bancorp (CADE) into Q1. He's less optimistic on First Horizon (FHN) and Huntington Bancshares (HBAN).

JPMorgan's Tusa maintains $6 price target on GE after BioPharma sale
JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa says there is no change to his $6 price target on General Electric (GE) following the company's BioPharma unit sale to Danaher (DHR). He keeps a Neutral rating on GE, which closed yesterday up 26c to $10.66. While the BioPharma deal "adds incrementally" to the sum-of-the-parts, it also helps to "unmask the underappreciated enterprise cash burn," Tusa tells investors in a research note. He sees the company's cash burn at sustainably in the $2B range now, and a run rate on earnings that "supports a stock well below standing levels." Further, the analyst's "quick initial read" on GE's annual filing suggests "there is more than enough to support" his "standing view on the numbers." Tusa admits, however, that the sale to Danaher is a better after-tax price than he would have expecte, "though certainly not outside the realm of possibilities." However, it leaves a Healthcare asset "that is short on growth," Tusa says, with an implied total enterprise value that is below what he had in his most recent sum-of-the-parts analysis.

Barclays double downgrades Robert Half to Underweight with $58 target
Barclays analyst Manav Patnaik double downgraded Robert Half International (RHI) to Underweight from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $58 from $72. The analyst says that recession or not, he's more cautious about the outlook further out in 2019 for Business Services "as we enter into the late stage of the business cycle." While the U.S. might still be better off than Europe, in both cases growth is more likely to slow versus accelerate, which makes positioning for both Robert Half and Manpower (MAN) "very hard," Patnaik tells investors in a research note. He now has Underweight ratings on both names.

Skechers price target raised to $37 from $32 at UBS
UBS analyst Jay Sole raised his price target on Skechers to $37 from $32 following its latest earnings report. The analyst said the last two reports indicated the company is entering a long-awaited phase of margin improvement due to a better geographic and channel mix, less discounting, and SG&A control. The analyst noted consensus is modeling EBIT margins to be flat, suggesting the market does not recognize Skechers' margin upside. Sole reiterated his Buy rating on the shares.

Skechers upgraded to Positive on signs of increased momentum at Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst Sam Poser upgraded Skechers to Positive from Neutral, stating that his checks with family footwear and independent retailers and recent results from wholesalers point to increased momentum for its brands. Given the signs he sees that its business is at the beginning of a positive inflection, Poser said he is confident that Skechers' operating margin is "on the road" back to its prior peak level of 11.5%. He raised his price target on Skechers shares to $37 from $32.

Barclays upgrades three P&C Insurers, downgrades RenaissanceRe
Barclays analyst Jay Gelb upgraded Travelers (TRV), Arch Capital Group (ACGL) and Progressive (PGR) to Overweight while downgrading RenaissanceRe to Underweight from Equal Weight. Travelers, Arch and Progressive are among the best managed companies in the Property and Casualty Insurance sector with "sustainably robust earning power, strong balance sheets, and increasingly attractive valuations," Gelb tells investors in a research note. He believes the recent share pullbacks have provided an attractive opportunity. And although he also views RenaissanceRe as well managed company, he thinks the stock's valuation is full and that reinsurance market conditions are unlikely to tighten.

Neutral
Cincinnati Financial upgraded to Neutral at Credit Suisse
As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Michael Zaremsk upgraded Cincinnati Financial (CINF) to Neutral from Underperform due to stronger-than-appreciated P&C pricing power relative to large-cap peers Travelers (TRV) and Chubb (CB), lower forecast non-catastrophe weather losses in 2019, and less exposure to workers' compensation business, for which he forecasts underlying margin deterioration through 2020 due to mandated pricing decreases. The analyst also raised his price target on Cincinnati Financial's shares to $90 from $75.
