12:02 EDTBWABorgWarner has de-risked set up into Detroit Auto Show, analyst says
Shares of BorgWarner (BWA), a global automotive industry components and parts supplier, are gaining after Goldman Sachs analyst Patrick Archambault upgraded the company to Buy from Neutral citing the 35% pullback in shares since the March 3 peak and improving China sales. WHAT'S NEW: Archambault, who maintained a $54 price target on BorgWarner shares, said in a note to investors that the auto parts maker has de-risked the set up into the Detroit Auto Show in January in the wake of its recent guide down for 2015 and pull forward of backlog cut announcement. The company may get to mid-to-high single digit growth even with a backlog cut and improving China sales "may even point to some upside," the analyst continued. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On November 10, BorgWarner finalized its acquisition of Remy International, a manufacturer of rotating electrical components such as alternators, starter motors and electric traction motors for the automotive and commercial vehicle industry. "With this acquisition, the complementary combination of technologies and global operations will strengthen BorgWarner's product leadership position," said BorgWarner President and Chief Executive Officer James Verrier. On October 30, RBC Capital downgraded BorgWarner to Sector Perform from Outperform with a $45 price target on shares. Analyst Joseph Spak said BorgWarner's story is transitioning from a growth story to GARP as it enters a mid-single digit growth phase, and expects the shareholder base will likely churn and credibility has to be rebuilt. PRICE ACTION: Shares of BorgWarner are advancing 4.79%, or $1.94, to $42.55 in midday trading. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the space including Lear (LEA), Delphi Automotive (DLPH) and Magna International (MGA) are trading higher in midday trading.

17:32 EDTUNPNorfolk Southern spikes after Canadian Pacific proposes merger
Shares of railroad operator Norfolk Southern (NSC) are spiking in the after-hours after rival Canadian Pacific (CP) announced that it has sent an offer letter to Norfolk Southern proposing a business combination. WHAT'S NEW: After the close of trading on Tuesday, Canadian Pacific proposed a business combination with Norfolk Southern "that would create a transcontinental railroad with the scale and reach to deliver improved levels of service to customers and communities while enhancing competition and creating significant shareholder value." Canadian Pacific noted that the proposal reflects a "sizable premium in cash and stock offered to NS shareholders." The combined company would have a potential for faster earnings growth than either of the companies independently, CP noted, while offering unparalleled customer service and competitive rates to shippers." The combined company would innovate a new approach to terminal access that would allow another carrier to operate from a point of connection in the event the combined company failed to provide adequate service or competitive rates. The combination of NS and CP would provide a solution to "bottleneck pricing" and alleviate congestion in Chicago by channeling rail traffic away from Chicago. WHAT'S NOTABLE: According to a Globe and Mail report from earlier Tuesday, Keith Creel the COO of Canadian Pacific, who was speaking at a transportation conference, said rail mergers are inevitable but the executive "refused" to confirm past reports that the railroad operator was in talks to acquire rival Norfolk Southern. ANALYST VIEW: ON November 12, research firm BB&T said it believes there are many scenarios in which a merger between Canadian Pacific and Norfolk Southern would benefit both companies. The firm said that Norfolk Southern shareholders would get a 20%-30% premium above the stock's current level, while Canadian Pacific's potential revenue growth issues would be solved and its 2018 EPS would be boosted by 20% plus. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Norfolk Southern are up 6.9% to $93.00, while Canadian Pacific shares are unchanged. OTHERS: Publicly traded companies in the space include CSX (CSX), Canadian National (CNI), Genesee & Wyoming (GWR), Kansas City Southern (KSU) and Union Pacific (UNP).

15:36 EDTCFXAirgas deal potentially negative for Lincoln Electric, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Matthew McConnell Air Liquide's acquisition of Airgas (ARG) opens the possibility that the French company could enter the market for U.S. welding equipment manufacturing, which is currently concentrated with top three players Lincoln Electric (LECO), Illinois Tool Works (ITW) and Colfax (CFX). The firm, which assumes that roughly 8% of Lincoln Electric's total sales go through Airgas, said the merger deal is most relevant for Lincoln, but also potentially negative for the other two. The firm keeps Sector Perform ratings on Lincoln, Illinois Tool and Colfax.
