Aon plc upgraded to Buy at MKM Partners on good organic growth
As previously reported, MKM Partners analyst Harry Fong upgraded Aon to Buy from Neutral and raised his price target to $200 from $155. The analyst cites the company's "good organic growth" of 6% reported in Q4 as well as its "very strong" free cash flow generation. As its restructuring program phases out, Fong believes that Aon may be on a path toward " upward sloping glide for earnings and cash flow," adding that the company's valuation profile has also improved.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. ConocoPhillips (COP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Neil Mehta citing better than expected Q4 results to reflect better long-term differential assumptions outside of the U.S., a reduced operating cost outlook given recent trends, higher oil volumes in the Lower 48, Alaska, Asia to reflect project-by-project builds and slightly higher Australia LNG distribution payments up to Conoco. 2. Aon plc (AON) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at MKM Partners with analyst Harry Fong citing the company's "good organic growth" of 6% reported in Q4 as well as its "very strong" free cash flow generation. 3. Intercept (ICPT) upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Steven Seedhouse citing his "unusually high amount of conviction in REGENERATE" trial data, noting that all the attempts to test his confidence in the investment story have only made him more bullish. 4. Intuit (INTU) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Keith Weiss saying new products, tax code changes and a more benign competitive environment position the company to exceed conservative revenue expectations in FY19. 5. Addus HomeCare (ADUS) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst Matthew Gillmor saying he believes secular drivers will support attractive growth and bullish fundamentals for the home care sector.

Deutsche Bank upgrades Willis Towers Watson to Hold, boosts target to $164
Deutsche Bank analyst Joshua Shanker last night upgraded Willis Towers Watson (WLTW) to Hold from Sell and raised his price target for the shares to $164 from $149. With 2018 coming to a close, the free cash flow content of Willis Towers Watson's earnings has improved to a point where the "valuation discount to its peers is no longer materially under-representative," Shanker tells investors in a research note. A deeper valuation gap for Willis relative to peers shares Aon plc (AON) and Marsh & McLennan (MMC) "seems unmerited at this time," adds the analyst.

Wells Fargo not convinced Willis Towers Watson deal with Aon would work
After Bloomberg reported that Aon (AON) is considering a bid to buy Willis Towers Watson (WLTW), Wells Fargo analyst Elyse Greenspan said the movements in both stocks following the report do not indicate to her that the market thinks a deal is coming. Overall, she sees regulatory issues being a big overhang for a deal that would combine the second and third largest insurance brokers and she is not convinced such a deal could get completed. If she were to be wrong, and such a deal comes together, Greenspan said she believes the net winner would be Arthur J. Gallagher (AJG), as they can take advantage by either buying additional businesses or taking people that want to leave or business that gets lost. Wells Fargo has Market Perform ratings on Aon and Willis and an Outperform rating on Gallagher shares.
