JPMorgan upgrades WW to Neutral on stabilizing subscriber trends

JPMorgan analyst Christina Brathwaiteu upgraded WW to Neutral from Underweight and raised her price target for the shares to $22 from $17. The company's subscriber trends have stabilized, which is supportive of its ability to reach 2019 guidance, Brathwaiteu tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes investors are beginning to look past the expected ~50% earnings decline this year and focusing on WW's potential growth opportunity in 2020 following the launch of a new diet program at the end of this year. Brathwaiteu thinks the stock's risk/reward is now more balanced.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Asset managers BlackRock (BLK), Eaton Vance (EV), Ivesco (IVZ), Affiliated Managers (AMG) and Legg Mason (LM) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank, with analyst Brian Bedell saying their fundamentals are "unlikely to improve anytime soon." The analyst believes "investor neglect" toward the stocks should continue on fears of a market downturn, as well as due to poor fundamentals from product outflows and pressure on fee rates and operating margins. 2. Starbucks (SBUX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs by analyst Karen Holthouse, saying she remains "reasonably confident" that Starbucks' initiatives to drive digital engagement can lead to a "more stable" 3%-4% comp trajectory in the U.S. over the next few years. However, its valuation has "rapidly re-rated" to reflect this, and gift cards and digital trends could be points of caution in fiscal Q1. The analyst also downgraded Yum! Brands (YUM) to Sell from Neutral. 3. Gap (GPS) downgraded to Underweight from Overweight at Barclays, with analyst Chethan Mallela saying he believes "challenging" traffic trends and "difficult" comparisons cloud visibility into the company's sales growth momentum. Further, the analyst believes the company's cost pressures will be larger than investors anticipate and pose risk to consensus estimates. 4. WW (WTW) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan by analyst Christina Brathwaite, saying early in the year channel checks point to a weak start to 2019 for the company. The checks suggest traffic to WW''s website and engagement on its mobile app are down double-digit percentages year-over-year, the analyst added. 5. Hanesbrands (HBI) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank, with analyst Tiffany Kanaga citing a deep dive of the company's international business.

Underweight
WW price target raised to $14 from $12 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Christina Brathwaite raised her price target for Underweight-rated WW to $14 from $12 after the company announced the launch of its new "Gamechanger" marketing campaign and said its members totaled around 4.6M at the end of Q1. The analyst says her key question following the press release is what is causing the divergence between subscribers being roughly flat year-over-year while U.S. daily active user data, as per SimilarWeb, contracted 40% in Q1 and 44% quarter-to-date in Q2. The divergence is likely related to lower app engagement overall from subscribers, which bodes poorly for WW's ability to improve trends sequentially throughout the year, Brathwaite tells investors in a research note.

JPMorgan removes WW from Focus List as short idea, ups target to $17
JPMorgan analyst Christina Brathwaite raised her price target for WW to $17 from $14 following the company's better than expected Q1 results and guidance increase. The analyst attributes these to stronger than expected cost savings and keeps an Underweight rating on the shares. Brathwaite, however, removed WW from her firm's Analyst Focus List as a short idea, acknowledging that the company is showing some signs of improvement and that the shares will be supported in the near term by hopes this trend can continue. With that said, the analyst continues to see risk to WW's second half of the year-weighted sales growth guidance.
