Coca-Cola energy drink launch in Europe negative for Monster, says Wells Fargo
Coca-Cola (KO) yesterday announced plans to launch its first ever energy drink in Europe, Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog tells investors in a research note titled "KO Unleashes Its Own 'Monster' with Coke Energy in Europe." Importantly, the announcement came despite the fact that Coca-Cola's ongoing arbitration with Monster Beverage (MNST) has not concluded, says the analyst. She believes this "clearly signals" that Coca-Cola is increasingly confident that it will prevail in the arbitration process. Herzog views the development as a negative for Monster "given that a Coca-Cola-branded energy drink represents yet another source of competition." She thinks the risks are increasing for Market Perform-rated Monster "from multiple vantage points" and maintains his cautious view on the stock.

Morgan Stanley downgrades Keurig Dr Pepper to Underweight on coffee risk
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Dara Mohsenian downgraded Keurig Dr Pepper to Underweight from Equal Weight as he sees a negative risk-reward despite a "well telegraphed" Q1 earnings beat on strong pricing at heritage Dr. Pepper Snapple. Based on the firm's recent AlphaWise survey, the analyst sees risk to coffee growth, noting that his forecast of around 1.5% is below the market-implied 4% long-term coffee topline growth, which is a key driver of his EPS forecast by 2021 being 5% below consensus. Additionally, Keurig Dr Pepper shares trade at a premium to the average of beverage peers Coca-Cola (KO) and PepsiCo (PEP) despite lower expected long-term topline growth, Mohsenian noted. He cut his price target on Keurig Dr Pepper shares to $24 from $27.

If the "brands that pay the bills" hardly grow and the ones that grow aren't profitable enough, "convincing bottlers to believe" gets harder, said the analyst, who contends that "if the bottlers aren't happy, nobody's happy." The analyst, who also cites valuation given Coca-Cola's new flat EPS guidance, lowered his price target on Coke shares to $50 from $64.

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.

U.S. HVAC may be at 'now or never' moment for consolidation, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analysts Joshua Pokrzywinski and Rajeev Lalwani said they believe the U.S. heating, ventilation, and air conditioning industry may be at a "now or never" moment for consolidation, noting that United Technologies (UTX) has started "negotiating in public" given CEO Greg Hayes' comments on his view on valuation, timing and a structure for any deal for its Carrier business. The analysts said they believe that antitrust concerns limit the discussion to two potential transactions, namely combining Carrier with Johnson Controls (JCI) or with Lennox (LII). While both scenarios could unlock value, they view the path to a deal as easier for Lennox and see United Technologies shares as "the best way to play" this consolidation theme. Including a Carrier transaction in their sum-of-the-parts valuation would point to a United Technologies share price of up to $170, versus their price target on the stock of $155, noted the analysts.

Jefferies still prefers Facebook in social, calls Twitter 'reasonably valued'
Social stocks have outperformed year-to-date, up ~55% versus the Nasdaq's rally of 20%, with Snap (SNAP) being the top performer up 120% after lagging the group in 2018, Jefferies analyst Brent Thill tells investors in a research note. The analyst continues to prefer share of Facebook (FB) in social with a Buy rating and $200 price target. He sees upside in average revenue per user and operating expenditure growth. Meanwhile, Thill is "incrementally positive" on Snap's "encouraging momentum," but says the company is "not out of the woods yet." If Snap can deliver on daily active user growth in Q1 it should be a catalyst for shares, however with the stock trading at nine-times 2019, these improvements are largely priced in, Thill tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. And while the analyst remains "fundamental fans" of Twitter, he views the stock as "reasonably valued." Further, Twitter faces tough comps for international in the first half of 2019 and for the U.S. in the second half of the year, Thill points out.

Further, relief that the Toys "R" US disruption of 2018 is over and a lowering of near-term financial expectations have "cleared the way for investor sentiment to improve," adds Johnson. The analyst, however, still sees risk to Hasbro's financials and believes the company could underperform Street expectations for 2019 and 2020.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. PPG (PPG) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying PPG shares have been drifting higher in 2019 as the market continues to prefer higher quality and less cyclical materials companies, however general economic business conditions are "arguably weaker than they have been because of decreased rates of economic growth in China and in Europe." 2. Sherwin-Williams (SHW) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas citing valuation. 3. Booking Holdings (BKNG) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush with analyst James Hardiman stating that he believes the company's dominant position in Europe will be favorable in the long term, but is likely to represent a liability in 2019 as it is could amplify risks of earnings revisions and multiple compression. 4. Biogen (BIIB) downgraded to Underweight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Matthew Harrison citing the failure of two Alzheimer's disease trials and noting that his optimism on Alzheimer's was "completely wrong." 5. Lululemon (LULU) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush with analyst Jen Redding saying that while she continues to see lululemon as best in class among specialty retailers, she is moving to the sidelines in anticipation of potentially less margin upside ahead, based on insights from proprietary data products.

Banc of California a sale candidate, just not today, says Piper Jaffray
Banc of California (BANC) will ultimately end up in the hands of someone else, just not today, Piper Jaffray analyst Matthew Clark tells investors in a research note. The analyst does not believe the hiring of Jared Wolff, with an M&A background at PacWest Bancorp (PACW), as CEO, and the involvement of long-time bank investor Rich Lashley on the board is coincidental. Clark says the "unexpected decision" by CEO Doug Bowers to resign and not see his three-year plan come to fruition reinforces his view. He likes the risk/reward on Banc of California shares and keeps an Overweight rating on the name with a $20 price target.

Banc of California downgraded to Neutral at DA Davidson after CEO change
As previously reported, DA Davidson analyst Gary Tenner downgraded Banc of California to Neutral from Buy and kept his $27 price target. The analyst says that yesterday's surprise CEO change announcement ended the market speculation about a potential sale of the company following its recently cancelled events, which he attributes to being the key driver of the gains in shares in recent weeks. Given the management change, expectations of a challenging deposit environment, and a 27% rise in the stock price from the lows, Tenner sees risk-reward on Banc of California as balanced.

Banc of California CEO resignation a negative, says B. Riley FBR
B. Riley FBR analyst Steve Moss views the resignation of Banc of California CEO Doug Bowers as a negative given his relatively short tenure into the company's turnaround. The analyst is concerned that the resignation, in part, could reflect the significant challenges Banc of California faces to improve its franchise. Further, he believes an acquisition "would be difficult to undertake," given a relatively low tangible book value valuation. Moss views the shares as fully valued and keeps a Neutral rating on the name with a $14 price target.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades

Regions Financial (RF) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Sandler O'Neill with analyst Stephen Scouten saying he does not believe there is more than 3%-5% of potential downside to 2021 numbers if there are not a couple of Fed rate reductions in 2020. 2. TAL Education (TAL) and New Oriental Education (EDU) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley. 3. First Bancorp (FBNC) and MidSouth Bancorp (MSL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Sandler O'Neill. 4. Lexicon (LXRX) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Gabelli with analyst Kevin Kedra citing the company's announcement that the FDA had issued a complete response letter for sotagliflozin to treat type 1 diabetes, consistent with his expectations. 5. Hibbett Sports (HIBB) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

New Oriental Education price target raised to $115 from $80 at TH Data Capital
TH Data Capital analyst Tian Hou raised his price target for New Oriental Education to $115 from $80 ahead of the company's fiscal Q3 results on April 23. New Oriental's Q3 revenue is likely to be better than consensus, Hou tells investors in a pre-earnings research note, citing his firm's data and analysis. The current major risk for education companies is government regulations, specifically for online education, as regulations for offline occurred in 2018, says the analyst. However, Hou expects demand for off-school education to "remain strong," whatever the policies may be. He maintains a Buy rating on New Oriental Education.
