Citi analyst Itay Michaeli downgraded Lear (LEA) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target on the stock to $144 from $188 following the company's 2019 guidance cut, which he contends "might not be fully explained by macro alone." Given the double-digit percentage cut to Lear's FY19 net income outlook, the reaction in the stock today "appears rather mild," said the analsyt, who added that the guidance cut suggests to him a worsening of some of the E-Systems revenue issues he'd previously called out. On the surface, the news appears to have a negative-read for suppliers with heavy exposure in Europe and China - such as Visteon (VC), Autoliv (ALV), Veoneer (VNE), BorgWarner (BWA) and Aptiv (APTV) - but Michaeli reiterated that he thinks there are also company-specific factors in play.
