US Foods agrees to divestitures to settle FTC charges related to merger

US Foods has agreed to divest assets to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that the company's proposed $1.8B acquisition of Services Group of America would violate federal antitrust law, the FTC announced. The FTC alleges that the proposed acquisition would likely harm competition for broadline foodservice distribution for customers in four local markets and for national and multi-regional customers throughout the country. The complaint alleges that, in Eastern Idaho, Western North Dakota, Eastern North Dakota, and the Seattle Area, the transaction would eliminate a key broadline distributor and limit customers' ability to switch between distributors to obtain better pricing and service. Under the proposed consent agreement, within 30 days of the acquisition closing, US Foods must divest three FSA distribution centers: one in Boise, Idaho; another in Fargo, North Dakota; and a third in the greater Seattle area. All three divestiture buyers are DMA members, and the divested facilities will maintain DMA's national footprint. Reference Link

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Mosaic (MOS) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas stating that following the stock's underperformance on a one, three, five, and ten year period, Mosaic shares now offer a favorable risk/reward balance. 2. Qorvo (QRVO) upgraded to Buy from hold at Canaccord with analyst T. Michael Walkley saying he expects Qorvo to remain focused on developing integrated solutions to drive dollar content growth to grow faster than the slow growing smartphone market and anticipates improving growth trends as 5G ramps in F2021. 3. LendingClub (LC) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Henry Coffey sayinh the company now operates with a more complex, more diversified source of loan buying/funding, a tighter focus around its primary credit niche, and a focus on operating efficiency that has it within eyesight of generating an adjusted EBITDA margin of 20% by the end of 2019. 4. US Foods (USFD) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Buckingham with analyst Bob Summers continuing to have a "very favorable" sector view as he believes that food away from home trends will continue and the industry fragmentation favors large, well-capitalized operators. 5. Office Properties (OPI) upgraded to Hold from Underperform at Jefferies with analyst Jonathan Petersen noting the market now well understands the earnings dilution from the FPO acquisition. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

JPMorgan prefers shares of US Foods over Sysco
JPMorgan analyst John Ivankoe says his conversations with the US Foods (USFD) investor relations team suggest the company's business is performing better than Sysco (SYY) and largely holding Q1 trends into Q2. Following the recent pullback in the shares, US Foods is the better name to own of the two, Ivankoe tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on both names.

Conagra shares pricing in execution and earnings risk, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Strycula lowered his price target for Conagra Brands (CAG) to $32 from $35 following the company's "disappointing" Q4 results. Given the magnitude of the Q4 sales miss, investors do not find the company's fiscal 2020 guidance as conservative, Strycula tells investors in a post-earnings research note. However, with the stock now at a 20% price-to-earnings discount to US Foods (USFD), Conagra shares have priced in execution risk and potential downside to earnings guidance, contends the analyst. As such, Strycula keeps a Buy rating on Conagra Brands.

US Foods shares have 'credible path' to $60 within two years, says Wells Fargo
While momentum in US Foods shares has returned, the name still provides "compelling upside" and the stock has a "credible path" to nearly $60 within the next two years, Wells Fargo analyst Edward Kelly tells investors in a research note. The company's fundamental performance "clearly looks to be back on track," yet it does not seem to be getting full credit, contends the analyst. He raised his 12-month price target for US Foods to $54 from $45 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.
