Barclays boosts Tesla delivery forecast, still predicts 'ongoing losses'
Barclays analyst Brian Johnson raised his Q2 delivery forecast for Tesla to 85,000 from 75,000 to reflect the quarter-end push hinted at in leaked Elon Musk emails as well as a likely subsidy-fueled boost in Canada. While we recognizing the "swing trade" in Tesla shares returned, the analyst expects the stock now reflects a delivery beat. He reiterates an Underweight rating on the name with a $150 price target. Johnson still predicts Tesla will post "ongoing losses."

Credit Suisse starts Tesla at Underperform, sees 'niche automaker'
Credit Suisse analyst Dan Levy last night initiated coverage of Tesla (TSLA) with an Underperform rating and $189 price target. The stock closed yesterday down 49c to $219.27. While Tesla currently leads in areas that will likely define the future of car making, the company faces "risks ahead" and is "likely to settle as a niche automaker," Levy tells investors in a research note. Volkswagen's (VWAGY) "strong push" on electric vehicles highlights the competition Tesla faces from larger, better capitalized players, according to the analyst. He believes Tesla lacks the same scale as other automakers and that the company has struggled with the basic "processes" of the auto industry. If Tesla can't maintain "healthy" margins, then its edge in the differentiating aspects of the auto business will be a "moot point," says Levy.

Tesla unlikely to hit aggressive delivery target, says Wedbush
In the midst of the final week of Q2 for Tesla, Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives believes all eyes on the Street will be focused on whether the company can deliver enough vehicles over the goal line in the coming days to hit its aggressive target for 90k-100k units, which he sees as an unlikely event. As such, the analyst is lowering his unit delivery numbers for the quarter from 88k to 84K units to better reflect his view of demand this quarte. Ives continues to believe the biggest overhang around the story is Tesla's ability to hit its overall unit guidance for 2019 of 360k to 400k units as this will be the telling tale of demand trends as Tesla is now a "demand story" rather than a production story. Hitting the 360k-400k unit demand guidance for 2019 is going to be an "Everest-like task" opinion as 350k is likely "the line in the sand," he contends, adding that hitting 275k Model 3 delivery units for the year would be viewed as a success and ultimately put the company on more stable ground heading into 2020. Ives has a Neutral rating and $230 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. General Mills (GIS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Rob Dickerson saying although the stock is up 20% year-to-date, pressure still exists in the company's snack bar and soup categories, and divestment dilution risk looms. 2. Snap (SNAP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Richard Greenfield citing the "surge in spending in North America on Snapchat from advertisers," who are increasingly focused on its "compelling" return on investment. 3. Hilton (HLT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying the company should see above-peer-average earnings growth over time thanks to its "asset-light business model, in which it franchises rather than owns hotels." 4. Forum Energy (FET) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Scott Gruber saying the company has made free cash flow a priority and believes it can generate $100M annually. 5. Petrobras (PBR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at HSBC. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Petrobras (PBR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Luiz Carvalho saying the new CEO brings a new mindset and Carvalho cites the two main pillars of his investment case, namely production growth and deleveraging. 3. TriNet (TNET) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at William Blair with analyst Timothy McHugh saying he views the current valuation multiple, at 16 times price-to-earning and 9.8 times EBITDA, as reasonable. 4. Evergy (EVRG) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith saying management's buyback plans support 6%-8% earnings growth, which is not reflected in valuation. 5.

LexinFintech, Qudian to benefit if China issues licenses, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank said that China's Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission has announced its regulation drafting schedule for 2019, noting that the plan includes regulation intended for online micro lending businesses. The firm believes that getting a proper online lending license is a key upside event for listed online lenders in China, pointing to LexinFintech (LX) and Qudian (QD) as "key beneficiaries" in the event licenses get issued. The firm raised its price targets for both stocks as it factors in a 50% chance of obtaining an online lending license with lower cost of equity assumptions. Deutsche Bank maintains a Buy rating on LexinFintech and a Hold rating on Qudian.

Morgan Stanley says Qudian 'attractive enough' to upgrade to Overweight
Morgan Stanley analyst John Cai said he views concerns about Qudian's regulatory and macro risks as overdone and believes the valuation of his top pick in online lending has become "attractive enough" to warrant an upgrade to Overweight from Equal Weight. Cai, who forecasts 2019 year-over-year net profit growth of 37% for Qudian, lowered his price target on the stock to $7.20 from $10.50.
