AHAM 6 appliance shipments drop 6% in March, says Buckingham
The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers reported March appliance shipments were down 6% while total appliances were down 4%, Buckingham analyst Megan McGrath tells investors in a research note titled "AHAM Data for March Continues To Reflect Tariff." The overall unit decline was generally in line with the analyst's expectations, but she notes that weakness in the month extended beyond the Laundry category, which she calls "somewhat surprising." McGrath maintained her 4% North America revenue growth estimate for Whirlpool's Q1, as she continues to expect the company to outperform industry data and benefit from higher pricing. The analyst keeps a Neutral rating on Whirlpool with a $135 price target.

Longbow says NA margin fears misguided, upgrades Whirlpool to Buy
As previously reported, Longbow analyst David MacGregor upgraded Whirlpool to Buy from Neutral stating that he sees earnings upside from better than expected North American margin performance, a "gradually improving" environment in the EMEA and a favorable cyclical turn in Latin America. The stock is pricing in a substantial 2019/2020 EPS deterioration, but he views this as overly bearish and thinks the bear thesis built on expectations for deteriorating NA margins is "misguided." MacGregor, who raised his EPS forecasts for Whirlpool, set a $178 price target on the shares.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. 3D Systems (DDD) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Paul Coster noting the stock is down 25% this week after posting "lackluster" Q1 results. 2. Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Andrew Rosivach saying the company's earnings declined in Q1 due to tough comps, but this should reverse quickly. 3. Ford (F) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst John Murphy stating the company's earnings are starting to hit a "sustainable inflection" due to favorable product cadence in the North America market and its restructuring efforts. 4. Whirlpool (WHR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Longbow with analyst David MacGregor seeing earnings upside from better than expected North American margin performance, a "gradually improving" environment in the EMEA and a favorable cyclical turn in Latin America. 5. Anthem (ANTM), Centene (CNC), and UnitedHealth (UNH) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Ralph Giacobbe the magnitude of the selloff in managed care stocks on fears of Medicare for All has been "extreme and overdone".
