Atlantic sees better entry point into S&P Global, upgrades to Overweight
As previously reported before the open, Atlantic Equities analyst John Heagerty upgraded S&P Global (SPGI) to Overweight from Neutral, stating that the 20% decline in the shares since July has provided a better entry point into the stock. He lowered his EPS forecasts for both S&P and Moody's (MCO) to account for the fact that corporate debt issuance was "very weak" in Q4. However, he also noted that high yield spreads have narrowed quickly since the beginning of the year, which he believes should provide a steadier platform for issuance in 2019. Also, debt refinancing requirements, particularly for high yield issuers, continue to increase, noted Heagerty, who has a $210 price target on S&P shares.

Moody's price target raised to $172 from $164 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Jeffrey Silber raised his price target on Moody's to $172, saying the miss in its Q4 earnings came from the MIS segment decline that was offset by strong expense efficiencies and margin expansion. The analyst also cites the company's better than expected guidance "driven by new products to offset slower MIS trends", accelerating buybacks, and cost controls. Silber keeps his Market Perform rating on Moody's, noting that while its "entry into private company information should diversify the business", it remains "mostly exposed to debt issuance trends."

Moody's price target raised to $182 from $172 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Jeffrey Silber raised his price target on Moody's to $182 after meeting with its management and discussing the company strategy. The analyst says that while he has gained greater appreciation for the company's non-rating business - Moody's Analytics - following the meetings, he is still keeps his Market Perform rating on the stock given the "sluggish near-term debt issuance" environment.

Piper boosts S&P Global price target to $242, Moody's target to $205
Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Appert raised his price target for Overeight-rated S&P Global (SPGI) to $242 from $220 and for Neutral-rated Moody's (MCO) to $205 from $178. Debt issuance in Q1 was a "mixed bag," with "impressive" strength in investment grade and high yield issuance balanced by weaker performance in the loan and structured finance categories, Appert tells investors in a research note. The analyst's increased price targets reflect confidence in the secular growth story and higher multiples in the peer group. He remains a fan of the rating agency business model with a "modest preference" for S&P Global over Moody's given its "more diversified business mix and greater margin upside."
