 Early Research Calls

Downgrades:

  • Mobileye (MBLY 63.54) downgraded to Sell from Buy at Dougherty & Company following co's merger news with Intel (INTC)

Misc

  • Turning Point Brands (TPB 13.72) target raised to $15 from $14 at FBR & Co. Firm notes the stock has has multiple catalysts that we believe will drive growth over the next few years. These include (1) the rollout of Stoker's MST cans, (2) exposure to the high-growth NewGen space, (3) continued product development, (4) sales force additions and improvements, and (5) growth via potential acquisitions.
  • Southern Copper (SCCO 35.64) target raised to $43 from $41 at FBR & Co. Firm notes they are updating our estimates for Southern Copper to incorporate additional information from the company's release of its 10-K earlier this month. They state the positive cost and sustaining capital guidance versus their estimates lead to an increase in their price target. Further more, they believe the shares' current level underappreciates long-term value as the company continues to pursue growth during a softer price environment.

 Mobileye N.V. downgraded to Sector Perform at RBC Capital Mkts; tgt raised to $63.54  (60.62)RBC Capital Mkts downgrades MBLY to Sector Perform from Outperform and raises their tgt to $63.54 from $57 as they expect the Intel (INTC) deal to close. Remaining in firm's coverage the other players with ADAS/autonomous businesses are DLPH and ALV. DLPH could be a beneficiary here as they have partnerships with both MBLY and INTC and could become a go-to Tier 1 for the INTC/MBLY products. With respect to ALV, bulls will want to place a premium on their autonomous efforts. However, firm would be somewhat cautious about doing that to a player they believe is behind from a technology standpoint and now faces a competitor with greater resources. Firm wouldn't be surprised to see further «partnerships» between automotive companies (ie. ALV, Bosch, Conti, etc.) and tech/semi players (Nvidia, NXP, etc.) as players attempt to join resources to solve autonomous driving.

  Jabil Circuit target raised to $27 at RBC Capital Mkts ahead of earnings tomorrow afternoon  (26.45)RBC Capital Mkts raises their JBL tgt to $27 from $24. They think JBL will report in-line Feb-qtr results as iPhone 7 data points have been fairly consistent with expectations and sustained growth in healthcare/packaging on the DMS side, while for EMS, IT hardware data points have been mostly stable with better than expected performance in Storage and PCs, and mostly in-line performance in servers. Given JBL's outsized exposure to AAPL (24% revenue but we think ~40-50% of profit), investors will remain focused on comments surrounding the iPhone 7 and any potential initial comments regarding the iPhone 8.

  Amgen: CHRS Neulasta biosimilar 'competitor' bullish on their upcoming approval date — RBC  (181.05)RBC notes CHRS has a Neulasta biosimilar FDA approval decision date in a few months. There is some Street nervousness over this given Neulasta is AMGN's 2nd biggest drug at $4B+ so it's competition to one of their largest and most profitable drugs....Mylan (MYL) also mentions their Neulasta biosimilar in slide decks with possible approval for November 2017...although overall, Street assumes that a biosimilar may come and launch by YE-17 and consensus models AMGN Neulasta down -10% for 2018. Their call is CHRS might get approval but this is somewhat already expected so not a material impact this year (despite headline/sentiment risk) and the bigger thesis is whether PCSK9 can pick up the pace in 2017-2018 and whether Romo FDA approval in July 2017 offers.

  Overnight Summary — World markets do little overnight ahead of start of FOMC meeting
  • The global equity markets had a very quiet overnight session, seemingly content to tread water with the 2-day FOMC meeting beginning today. Although there is little question surrounding a rate hike, the market will focus more in on the tone and any forward guidance in the commentary. As such, S&P Futures slightly lower this morning, a few points below fair value.
  • Asia had an extremely tight trading session, with the major regional indices finishing little changed (±0.1%). There were a couple of notable economic releases last night, particularly out of China. The results were mixed, however with Feb Industrial Production topping expectations by a tick at +6.3%, while Feb Retail Sales missed the mark, coming in at +9.5% (vs +10.6%e). Neither of the releases provided much of a spark to inspire traders with muted reactions seen following the releases.
  • Japanese equities did little more than tread water, despite a weakening yen throughout the session. The lone macro-data release was of no consequence, with the Q2 Manpower Survey remaining flat with a reading of 23, unchanged from Q1's result.
  • European bourses are under slight pressure, but still seeing only minimal declines. The tone of activity has been similar to that of Asia, with trading volumes on the lighter side so far. The most notable mover of the night was the British pound, which is down 0.7.5% against the green back, and printing a 2 month low. This comes in the wake of British Parliament granting approval for Prime Minister May to begin Brexit, officially withdrawing from the EU.

Market Updates:

  • S&P Futures vs Fair Value: -2.00 
  • 10 yr Note: 2.6204%  
  • USD/JPY: 115.08 +0.20
  • EUR/USD: 1.0638 -0.0012

  Texas Roadhouse upgrade details — to Outperform at Robert W. Baird as pullback creates entry point; tgt $48  (40.67)Robert W. Baird upgrades TXRH to Outperform from Neutral and sets target price at $48 as they believe the YTD pullback in TXRH has presented a good opportunity to buy a high-quality company at a discounted valuation. Although the NT outlook for casual dining admittedly is somewhat cloudy, firm considers TXRH a best-in-class operator that is capable of producing solid results in upcoming periods, and they see a scenario in which signs of better top-line momentum in the balance of 2017 can contribute to better investor sentiment and out-performance for the shares during the next 6-12+ months.

 Asian Markets Close: Nikkei -0.1%, Hang Seng UNCH, Shanghai +0.1%

Equity indices in the Asia-Pacific region ended Tuesday on a mixed note, but all in all, trading ranges were very narrow. In China, the country's National Bureau of Statistics noted that fundamentals of the Chinese economy are improving and that the business environment is in better shape than one year ago. Staying in China, press reports suggest the country will deploy anti-radar equipment to counter US deployment of THAAD missiles in South Korea.

  • In economic data:
    • China's January Retail Sales +9.5% year-over-year (consensus 10.5%; last 10.9%), January Industrial Production +6.3% year-over-year (expected 6.2%; previous 6.0%), and January Fixed Asset Investment +8.9% year-over-year (consensus 8.2%; last 8.1%)
    • Australia's NAB Business Confidence 7 (previous 10)
    • South Korea's February Import Price Index +9.1% year-over-year (previous 13.3%) and Export Price Index +4.9% year-over-year (last 7.4%)
    • India's February WPI Inflation 6.55% year-over-year (expected 5.90%; last 5.25%)

---Equity Markets---

  • Japan's Nikkei spent the day in a slim range, shedding 0.1%. Toshiba was down nearly 8.0% intraday amid continued speculation that the company's earnings report would be delayed once again; however, the stock rallied to end higher by 0.6% after the company confirmed the delay and announced it will take a JPY712.50 billion writedown. Nisshin Steel Holdings, Familymart, Dentsu, Toyota Motor, Mitsui Fudosan, Isuzu, and Yamaha lost between 1.0% and 2.4%.
  • Hong Kong's Hang Seng settled just below its flat line.

  • China's Shanghai Composite ticked up 0.1%. China Enterprise, China Grand Automotive Services, Tibet Tourism, Anhui Conch Cement, Sichuan Languang Development, and Shenyang Commercial City posted gains between 3.1% and 4.4%.
  • India's Sensex jumped 1.7% after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party won in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarkhand. Mr. Modi will stand for reelection in 2009 and his party's victories are seen as a vote of confidence for his economic agenda. ICICI Bank surged 6.0% while Hindustan Unilever, Larsen & Toubro, Housing Development Finance, Maruti Suzuki, Adami, Wipro, and Infosys gained between 1.5% and 4.5%.

  Valeant Pharma: Pershing walks away, but balance sheet strengthening should not be dismissed — Stifel  (12.11)Stifel notes VRX's top holder, Pershing Square, announced the offering of its 27.2mn share stake, giving up two board seats (Bill Ackman/Stephen Fraidin) at re-election and ending what was a very public entanglement with the company since the failed bid for Allergan. VRX has since rebuilt its mgmt team, pursued asset sales to simplify the business, strengthened the balance sheet, and has refocused investment into growth assets and R&D. Despite this, the stock has continued to decline and Ackman is finally capitulating and taking the tax loss, with VRX representing ~$300mn (or <3% of its capital) down from what was a multi-billion dollar investment. This will be another sentiment hit to VRX shares, only a day after agreeing to terms on the restructuring of its Term Loan facilities and upsizing a bond financing that extends a good portion of its 2018-2020 obligations. Though the overhang of its most urgent debt maturities have been removed, VRX remains committed to its debt repayment target by early-2018, of which half remains to be satisfied through cash flow and additional divestments.

VRX -12.5% premarket.

  Entegris upgrade details-- to Buy at Needham; tgt $25  (22.05)Needham upgrades ENTG to Buy from Hold and sets target price at $25 reflecting firm's increased confidence of growth and margin expansion in the coming quarters. With improved semi demand, new leading-edge fab capacities going into production, and several company-specific programs starting to ramp up, they believe ENTG will continue to outperform the long-term target growth rate of 4-5%. They also expect margins to expand driven by mix, reduced overhead absorption, and leverage, which will enable the stock to close its valuation discount to its peers. They believe ENTG offers investors greater relative value to participate in the growth of the Fab Materials space on top of next week's Analyst Event being a near-term catalyst.

  • Baker Hughes (BHI) announced today the commercial release of its TerrAdapt adaptive drill bit, which can deliver dramatic improvements in drilling economics by using automation to mitigate downhole dysfunctions that cause inefficient drilling and costly tool failures. With the industry's first self-adjusting depth-of-cut control elements, the TerrAdapt bit automatically changes its aggressiveness based on the formation through which it is drilling to mitigate vibrations, stick-slip and impact loading. For operators, this means faster, more consistent rates of penetration, longer bit/tool life and significantly reduced non-productive time and invisible lost time.

On the political front, yesterday evening, the Congressional Budget Office released its research on House Republicans' proposed replacement of the Affordable Care Act. Without going into the specifics, the report has stirred up some controversy, leaving investors worried that health care reform might take longer than previously anticipated, and thereby pushing back the timeline for tax reformation.

  Imperva initiated with a Buy at Monness Crespi & Hardt; tgt $52  (42.35)Monness Crespi & Hardt initiates IMPV with a Buy and price target of $52. Despite a moderation in cyber security spending from recent peaks, they continue to think the segment remains a key spending priority. Against this backdrop, they think IMPV is well positioned with a comprehensive offering in two of the faster growth verticals, application and database security. Near to medium term, they expect IMPV to benefit from a number of catalysts, including 1) improving execution as evidenced by out-performance relative consensus the last two quarters; 2) a lower cost structure and the potential for margin expansion; 3) a focus on higher growth segments; 4) an activist shareholder with a track record of driving positive change; 5) the potential to revisit a takeout; and 6) policy-based spending catalysts in Europe. Recent changes in customer buying patterns, a competitive landscape and the potential for some negative impact from the public cloud are key challenges. However, firm thinks risk/reward is favorable.

  Check Point Software initiated with a Neutral at Monness Crespi & Hardt  (100.40)Monness Crespi & Hardt initiates CHKP with a Neutral. Despite a moderation in cyber security spending from recent peaks, they continue to think the segment remains a key spending priority. Against this backdrop, they view CHKP as well-positioned in the firewall market with a comprehensive platform and significant install base that it can leverage for upgrades. In the near to medium term, key catalysts include the ongoing product refresh, ramping of new products and policy-based spending in Europe. Co accelerated investments in the business in 2015, and while spending plans have been well-communicated, the duration appears to be longer than most investors expected. Recent out-performance and a slightly better outlook imply a modest re-acceleration of growth, but they do not see a clear inflection point with regards to unlocking operating leverage.
