Sector Weight
Whirlpool downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Kenneth Zener last night downgraded Whirlpool to Sector Weight from Overweight without a price target. The analyst has taken a more selective posture on the household appliances space "as macro catalysts wane." Further, he sees limited valuation upside as "earnings momentum weakens." Upside catalysts from declining U.S. interest rates and lower input costs offsetting flat U.S. demand are balanced by downside catalysts of slowing growth in Europe and Asia, Zener tells investors in a research note. Following a 42% rally year-to-date, the analyst views Whirlpool's risk/reward as more balanced. Upside is likely limited by the patience required for a European turnaround, says Zener.

JPMorgan upgrades Whirlpool to Overweight, boosts price target to $172
JPMorgan analyst Michael Rehaut upgraded Whirlpool (WHR) to Overweight from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $172 from $155. The analyst expects U.S. industry shipments to be more stable year-over-year through the end of 2019 and show "modest" growth in 2020. Further, he thinks point to steel prices will remain "at bay" and that Whirlpool's European operations will "finally" turn a small profit in the second half of 2019. In addition, Rehaut views the stock's valuation as inexpensive. The analyst this morning also downgraded Beacon Roofing Supply (BECN) to Underweight from Neutral. His top picks in the Building Products sector remain Stanley Black & Decker (SWK) and Fortune Brands (FBHS).

Morgan Stanley cuts Entergy, ups NRG in U.S. Utilities preference shuffle
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Stephen Byrd downgraded Entergy (ETR) to Equal Weight from Overweight while raising his price target for the shares to $115 from $114. He also upgraded NRG Energy (NRG) to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $49 from $47. Sector outperformance relative to the broader market has resulted in a very high relative valuation for the lowest risk stocks, leaving opportunities to invest in U.S. utility stocks that have been "left behind," contends Byrd. Entergy has outperformed the UTY index year-to-date by about 14%, while NRG has underperformed by 16% year-to-date versus its closest peer, Vistra Energy (VST), explained Byrd. He also increased his price target on Xcel Energy (XEL) to $63 from $60, on Ameren (AEE) to $80 from $78 and on CMS Energy (CMS) to $63 from $59 as he sees these Midwest utilities offering above-average earnings growth. Byrd still recommends investors avoid utility stocks with "fat tail risks," including Edison International (EIX), PG&E (PCG), Pinnacle West (PNW) and Southern (SO).
