Delta Air Lines downgraded on higher costs, slower growth at Argus

Argus analyst John Staszark downgraded Delta Air Lines (DAL) to Hold from Buy following the company's Q3 results, saying that while Delta is among the best managed airlines, he thinks better returns are available elsewhere, as Delta is facing prospects for rising costs and slowing revenue growth. He recommends shares of United Continental (UAL) over Delta. Longer term, he expects Delta to benefit from solid industry fundamentals, including moderate capacity growth, growing ancillary revenue, and rising demand for air travel.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tesla (TSLA) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at JMP Securities with analyst Joseph Osha saying that while the figures were not "significantly far off" from consensus, delivery unit growth was in low-single-digits with no indications of operational issues. 2. Charles Schwab (SCHW) and E-Trade (ETFC) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo while TD Ameritrade (AMTD) was downgraded to Underperform from Outperform. 3. Teligent (TLGT) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Elliot Wilbur citing the announcement of a strategic review of assets that are non-core to the company's long-term strategy. 4. Insulet (PODD) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Guggenheim with analyst Chris Pasquale saying while he continues to see the company being competitively well positioned, he now sees the risk/reward as less attractive. 5. Delta Air Lines (DAL) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Neutral
Delta Air Lines shares likely to re-rate lower for longer, says Buckingham
Buckingham analyst Daniel McKenzie downgraded Delta Air Lines to Neutral from Buy and slashed his price target to $58 from $74, telling investors in a research note that shares are likely to re-rate lower for longer -- with or without a recession -- on Q4 cost pressures annualizing into 2020 that imply a consensus outlook that that is too aggressive. McKenzie contends that "lumpy" supply tied to the return of the Boeing 737 MAX and increasing global economic uncertainty, which is beginning to impact business travel volumes, suggest pricing is going to be challenged in 2020

Overweight
Delta Q4 outlook likely to be 'somewhat disappointing,' says Stephens
Stephens analyst Jack Atkins said Delta Air Lines' Q4 RASM and adjusted EPS outlook is "likely to be somewhat disappointing for investors," who also are frustrated that Delta has raised its unit cost outlook into the end of the year "once again. While he thinks 2020 will likely be more of a challenge for the company given a slower macro backdrop and elevated domestic capacity growth, Atkins is still "favorably biased" toward Delta over the long-term as he sees it as a "best-in-breed" carrier. He keeps an Overweight rating on the stock but his estimates and $75 price target are under review pending the company's earnings call.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Cott Corp. (COT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Judy Hong saying the stock has underperformed relative to its peers with no significant catalysts, and the weakness more than accounts for the potential FX headwinds. 2. Celanese (CE) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying the company's operating performance has proven to be "surprisingly durable." 3. Medical Properties Trust (MPW) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Chad Vanacore saying the company has a "long runway for above-average growth" given a "strong" pipeline of acquisition targets, a diversifying asset base, and the "attractive" macro environment. 4. United Continental (UAL) upgraded to In-Line from Underperform at Imperial Capital with analyst Michael Derchin saying current valuations fairly reflect the company's recent strong performance and future outlook. 5. Snap (SNAP) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Summit Insights and to Neutral from Sell at UBS. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Macquarie warns about pricing pressure among airlines from Southwest competition
Macquarie analyst Susan Donofrio downgraded American Airlines (AAL), Spirit Airlines (SAVE), Hawaiian Holdings (HA), and Alaska Air (ALK) to Neutral from Outperform as part of a broader industry note, saying the competitive environment for these airlines should become "choppy" in the fall of 2019 and in 2020 as Southwest (LUV) attempts to win back market share. The analyst believes that the latter's sizable domestic scope should lead to "unit revenue softness" within the overall pricing structure, through she maintains an Outperform rating on United Airlines (UAL), Delta (DAL) and Allegiant (ALGT) given their ongoing revenue initiatives and minimal overlap with Southwest.

Berenberg says big 4 airlines can generate cash, prefers American and Delta
As previously reported, Berenberg analyst Adrian Yanoshik initiated coverage of the four largest U.S. airlines, starting American Airlines (AAL) with a Buy rating and $35 price target, Delta Air Lines (DAL) with a Buy rating and $72 price target, United Continental (UAL) with a Hold rating and $95 price target and Southwest Airlines (LUV) with a Hold rating and $57 price target. Amid market worries over both capacity growth and demand weakness, his work suggests that U.S. airlines can generate free cash flow in "all scenarios but a 9/11-scale shock," Yanoshik tells investors. He thinks airline sector valuations reflect fears, but overlook broadly stable, albeit two-tiered, returns. He would buy American with valuation at multi-year lows as he estimates that American will narrow its margin gap to peers and thinks it debt burden is misunderstood. He would also buy Delta, which Yanoshik calls "arguably the highest-quality airline."
