The semiconductor chip…

The semiconductor chip shortage will get worse in Q2 but abate in the second half of 2021, Barclays analyst Brian Johnson tells investors in a research note on the U.S. Autos and Auto Parts sector. The analyst is rotating some of his favorite names into the "summer recovery," upgrading Magna International (MGA) with a price target of $115, up from $87, and downgrading both Lear (LEA) and Visteon (VC) to Equal Weight from Overweight with price targets of $184 and $130, respectively. Magna joins Dana (DAN) as a favored name from Johnson given its "significant progress" in building out a dedicated electric vehicle platform. The analyst views Lear as "more fully valued" at current share levels and sees "elevated headwinds" for Visteon in the near term from the chip shortage.

Jefferies analyst David Kelley raised the firm's price target on Lear to $210 from $186 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares despite lowering his first-half estimates for his pure play auto supplier coverage given how supply chain disruption has intensified into Q2 While he believes earnings commentary and guides from the group will drive Q2 estimate cuts and likely pressure the fiscal year trajectory, Kelley continues to see an "inevitable restock as a meaningful driver of earnings snapback," he tells investors.

KeyBanc analyst James Picariello raised the firm's price target on Lear to $195 from $185 and keeps an Overweight rating on the shares. The analyst believes E-Systems is a favorable earnings growth accelerator to Seating in support of gradual multiple expansion. Via a focus on value-add design and vertically integrated growth, Picariello consider E-Systems 2025 targets highly achievable amid OEMs' "clean slate" approach in EV platforms, structurally driving direct CPV opportunities in addition to sizable share gain runway in traditional engineered components content.

Wells Fargo analyst Colin…

Wells Fargo analyst Colin Langan initiated coverage of Lear with an Overweight rating and $214 price target. The analyst expects a few quarters of "relatively stable" E-Systems margins to ease investor concerns about potential further declines in the segment. This should re-focus investors on the "strong" core Seating business, and the electric vehicle and connected growth opportunities from E-Systems investments like Xevo, says the analyst. He believes Lear's free cash flow and growth are underappreciated at current share levels.
