ServiceMaster weakness an 'attractive' entry point, says Stifel

Stifel analyst Michael Hoffman backed a Buy rating on ServiceMaster but cut his price target on the shares to $59 from $61 following the company's earnings guidance revision preannouncement. Hoffman said that Servicemaster will have "unusually high" Termite damage claim settlements in the third and fourth quarters and lower profits from fumigation. The analyst added that while organic growth is "trending better" in Pest Control, the pace of retention has "ebbed below plan" and exacerbates the downbeat earnings. Hoffman also said that, in his view, weakness in the shares is an "attractive" entry point.

Sector Perform
Rollins initiated with a Sector Perform at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Seth Weber initiated Rollins (ROL) with a Sector Perform rating and a price target of $34. The analyst is positive on the company's position in the "attractive" U.S. pest control market along with its "impressive" growth track record and outperformance relative to the S&P over the long and the short term. Despite the company's healthy balance sheet and growing cash flows however, Weber notes that the valuation on the stock "does not leave much wiggle room" as it currently trades at an 8-turn premium on enterprise value to EBITDA multiple basis relative to its pest peer ServiceMaster (SERV).

Outperform
ServiceMaster upgraded to Outperform at RBC Capital on pest control survey data
RBC Capital analyst Seth Weber upgraded ServiceMaster to Outperform and raised his price target to $63 from $55. The analyst is citing the findings of his RBC Pest Survey, which showed growing customer satisfaction with Terminix product and which he believes should result in higher customer retention rate. Weber is also positive on ServiceMaster's acquisition of Nomor announced last month, noting the purchase of the 4th biggest pest control operator in Europe gives the company a "toe hold" in the market while adding a "fast-growing" business whose margins are above the Terminix average.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Microsoft (MSFT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Brent Thill saying he sees "excellent visibility" with a "clear line of sight into double digit revenue growth for the near future" in the "safest large-cap investment option." 2. ServiceMaster (SERV) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Seth Weber citing the findings of his RBC Pest Survey, which showed growing customer satisfaction with Terminix product and which he believes should result in higher customer retention rate. 3. NextEra Energy Partners (NEP) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Moses Sutton saying NextEra Energy's underperformance relative to TerraForm Power (TERP) "has become a compelling opportunity." 4. Nordic American Tankers (NAT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Gregory Lewis saying tanker rates had undergone a "nuclear winter" over the past 2 years but crude spot rates have finally started to show "tangible" signs of recovery, with Suezmax prices rising to over $70k/d presently from $30k/d last month and $16k/d from 2017 through the first half of 2019. 5. HCP (HCP) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

William Blair likes ServiceMaster risk/reward despite 'underwhelming' Q3
William Blair analyst Tim Mulrooney views ServiceMaster's Q3 as "underwhelming" given the difficult weather during the key pest selling season this year. While the variability regarding the timing and magnitude of termite claims has increased uncertainty in shares of ServiceMaster, the long-term risk/reward profile is attractive at these levels, Mulrooney tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Outperform rating on the name.
