BMO Capital analyst Tom MacKinnon upgraded Fairfax Financial to Outperform from Market Perform with a price target of C$1,050, up from C$800. Traditionally Fairfax Financial's heavy reliance on investment gains to drive EPS/BVPS growth has given the firm pause. But going forward, BMO Capital sees EPS/BVPS growth driven by much more reliable sources which improves earnings visibility, and gives it more confidence in EPS/BVPS growth outlook.

RBC Capital analyst Mark Dwelle lowered the firm's price target on Fairfax Financial to $700 from $725 but keeps an Outperform rating on the shares. The analyst is updating his FY22 earnings forecasts to ($11.79) from $15.21 to reflect his updated estimates for catastrophe losses related to Hurriance Ian, which he now sees to be around $500M vs. $300M prior view. Dwelle adds however that he remains positive on Fairfax's long-term track record of double-digit book value growth and believes that the current valuation provides an attractive risk-reward entry point.

Atlas Corp. (ATCO)…

Atlas Corp. (ATCO) confirmed receipt of a "revised, non-binding proposal" from Poseidon Acquisition, an entity formed by certain affiliates of Fairfax Financial (FRFHF), certain affiliates of the Washington Family, David Sokol, Chairman of the Board of Atlas, and Ocean Network Express, and certain of their respective affiliates, to acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Atlas, other than common shares owned by Fairfax, Washington, and Sokol, for $15.50 cash per common share. Atlas notes that its special committee of independent directors and its advisors reviewed, evaluated and engaged directly with the consortium members and their advisors regarding Poseidon's unsolicited proposal dated August 4, including with respect to the factors referenced in the consortium's letter received September 26, and other factors the special committee considered important, such as the "substantial, long-term contracted cash flow" of the company's charter operations. The special committee "consistently" advised the consortium that it was not prepared to recommend the $14.45 per share proposal to shareholders as it did not reflect the standalone value of the company. Following receipt of the consortium's revised proposal, the special committee informed the consortium that, working with its advisors, it is evaluating the revised offer.
