Coca-Cola upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS

UBS analyst Sean King upgraded Coca-Cola to Buy from Neutral with a price target of $63, up from $55. The stock closed Tuesday down 38c to $53.85. The company is "effectively navigating" aggressive U.S. price increases, a transformational deal for Costa, and demonstrating strong innovation capabilities while reinvigorating growth in high-margin sparkling, King tells investors in a research note. These "comfortably position" Coca-Cola to deliver on growth targets and improve free cash flow through fiscal 2022, adds the analyst. He believes the company's earnings, range bound since 2011, have reached a "sustainable fundamental inflection" that will drive a multiple re-rating.

Coca-Cola added to Fresh Money Buy List at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley equity strategist Michael Wilson said he is shifting the firm's "Fresh Money Buy List" to be more defensive by adding Coca-Cola (KO) and removing LyondellBasell (LYB). At Coke, he expects an acceleration in EPS growth driven by stronger pricing power, volume growth and new products, said Wilson. In terms of the broader market, Wilson said new tariffs are not the only thing driving the market lower, pointing to full valuations, corporate profits turning lower and technical resistance as other factors ahead of "heavy Treasury issuance this month" that will add another headwind.

Guggenheim downgrades Monster Beverage to Neutral as Coke Energy comes to U.S.
As previously reported, Guggenheim analyst Laurent Grandet downgraded Monster Beverage (MNST) to Neutral from Buy given his view that the stock will be range-bound until the market can better gauge the impact of the upcoming U.S. launch of Coca-Cola (KO) Energy, which is planned for January. In Europe, where Coke has already launched Energy, there are signs of softness for Monster, though there is also broader category slowdown there and the long-term impact is still unknown, added Grandet. He lowered his EPS estimates for Monster for FY19-FY21 and cut his price target on the shares to $60 from $74.

Outperform
BMO Capital more optimistic about Keurig Dr Pepper generating merger synergies
BMO Capital analyst Amit Sharma is keeping his Outperform rating and $34 price target on Keurig Dr Pepper (KDP), citing its expected "sector leading" mid-teen earnings growth through 2021 along with his "greater confidence" in post-synergies earnings growth potential in high single digits. The analyst notes that investors are focusing on the company's coffee business while overlooking the "ingrained structural advantages" of its much-larger RTD beverage business, with consensus estimates modeling a "smaller" improvement than the expected North America sales trends at Coca-Cola (KO) and PepsiCo (PEP).
