Truck pricing, volume pressures to weigh on transport sector, says Raymond James

Raymond James analyst Patrick Tyler Brown tells investors in a research note that truck pricing and volume pressures are expected to weight on near-term results in the Transportation Services space, saying that following another quarter of challenging freight conditions and contractual truckload renewals likely firmly in negative territory y/y, "we are generally not expecting much to write home about this quarter." He thinks attention will center around any update on truckload capacity, especially in the wake of what he sees as early signs of capacity rationalization between net truck orders well below replacement, plateauing truck transportation employment and a host of potential regulatory impacts. The analyst raised his price target on Saia (SAIA) to $105 from $85 and on Kansas City Southern (KSU) to $151 from $141 and lowered his price target on Union Pacific (UNP) to $188 from $197.

Kansas City Southern price target raised to $144 from $135 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Rick Paterson raised his price target on Kansas City Southern to $144 and kept his Buy rating after its better than expected Q2 results, saying the company generated "nice traction" with its precision scheduled railroading initiative. The analyst is also positive on the company's outlook seeking to reduce its capital spending from $650M to below $600M next year and to about 18% of sales from 20% in subsequent years. Paterson adds that as Kansas City Southern plays "catch-up" to larger rails, its "elusive" free cash flow growth should start to trend more favorably.

Cascend downgrades four rails on weakening intermodal traffic
Cascend Securities downgraded four names in the rail space, CSX (CSX), Norfolk Southern (NSC), Kansas City Southern (KSU), and Union Pacific (UNP), to Hold after three years at Buy. Intermodal traffic is down since February, and it doesn't look like a "pause," Cascend tells investors in a research note. Further, industrial equipment imports into the U.S. has suddenly declined sharply, adds the firm, which notes that CSX last night called the economic backdrop "puzzling."

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Saia (SAIA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Amit Mehrotra saying after meeting with management, he is incrementally more confident in Saia's ability to generate double-digit revenue growth this year. 2. Guess (GES) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Janine Stichter saying the recent pullback in the stock puts the company's multiple below its historical average and peers. 3. Spirit Airlines (SAVE) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Catherine O'Brien saying she expects passenger revenue trends for the company in the first half of the year to be stronger than previously anticipated. 4. MacroGenics (MGNX) upgraded to Buy from Sell at Citi with analyst Yigal Nochomovitz saying additional Phase 1 readouts in 2019 should provide further stock momentum for MacroGenics. 5. Cognizant (CTSH) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Keith Bachman citing the company's FY19 revenue growth outlook and a positive management transition.

Saia upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Jack Atkins upgraded Saia to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $96 from $75. The company's Q2 results demonstrated that its expansion into the Northeast has reached an inflection point, Atkins tells investors in a research note. Moreover, Saia's tonnage turned positive year-over-year in June and has remained positive in July, despite a challenging comparison, says the analyst. He believes the company's geographic expansion and yield initiatives are creating a "compelling and differentiated story" within the transportation sector.

Buy
Saia, ArcBest should be bought on any FedEx-related selloff, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Stephanie Benjamin expects FedEx's (FDX) earnings miss and lowered guidance last night to negatively pressure the Trucking and Logistics group today. However, the positive pricing and margin results for FedEx's less-than-truckload business should not be overlooked, Benjamin tells investors in a research note. She attributes the majority of the earnings miss to weakness internationally, particularly in Europe, which impacted FedEx's Ground and Express businesses. Benjamin recommends using any selloff today in shares of Saia (SAIA) and ArcBest (ARCB) as buying opportunities. Both companies are entirely U.S. based and benefiting from a "highly rational" less-than-truckload pricing environment. She reiterates a Buy rating and $35 price target on ArcBest and boosted her price target for Saia to $105 from $95. Benjamin believes both companies can see revenue upside and greater than expected margin expansion in 2020.

Union Pacific (UNP) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities, while CSX (CSX) was upgraded to Neutral from Underweight. 5.

Union Pacific price target raised to $191 from $179 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Rick Paterson raised his price target on Union Pacific to $191 after its better than expected Q2 results, saying the quarter revealed that adverse weather impact has masked some of the "structural improvement" of the company's adoption of Precision Scheduled Railroading. The analyst contends that progress has in fact been "more significant", and he is "intrigued" to see what Union Pacific can do for the balance of the year with major environmental shocks. Paterson also raised his FY19 and FY20 EPS forecasts by 42c and 65c to $8.91 and $10.29 respectively.

Morgan Stanley stays Underweight on Union Pacific, says 'priced for perfection'
After Union Pacific "modestly" topped expectations in Q2, Morgan Stanley analyst Ravi Shanker noted that consensus had declined 9% since May and said he thinks the small beat could come as a disappointment "for a railroad that is in the prime of its PSR implementation." Shanker, who thinks the stock is "priced for PSR perfection," said he has little doubt that the company's headcount cuts are driven by its Precision Scheduled Railroading shift, but he also believes they were accelerated by the tough environment. He keeps an Underweight rating on Union Pacific shares, though he raised his price target on the stock to $140 from $128.
