18:12 EDTPCLNS&P announces changes to S&P 100, 400, 500, and 600 indices
S&P Dow Jones Indices will make the following changes to the S&P 100, S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400 and S&P SmallCap 600 indices: S&P 500 constituent The Priceline Group (PCLN) will replace Baxter International (BAX) in the S&P 100, Baxalta (BXLT) will replace QEP Resources (QEP) in the S&P 500, QEP Resources will replace Itron (ITRI) in the S&P MidCap 400, and Itron will replace Arch Coal (ACI) in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of trading on Tuesday, June 30. Baxter International is spinning off Baxalta in a transaction expected to be completed on that date. Baxter International will remain in the S&P 500 following the distribution, but its post spin market capitalization will no longer make it appropriate for the S&P 100. QEP Resources, Itron and Arch Coal are all ranked near or at the bottom of their current indices. Skechers USA (SKX) will replace Rock-Tenn Co. (RKT) in the S&P MidCap 400, and MiMedx Group (MDXG) will replace Skechers USA in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of trading on Tuesday, June 30. S&P 500 constituent MeadWestvaco Corp. (MWV) is combining with Rock-Tenn in a transaction expected to be completed on or about that date. The combined company will remain in the S&P 500 and will change its name to WestRock Co. HealthEquity (HQY) will replace Zep Inc. (ZEP) in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of trading on Thursday, June 25. Private equity firm New Mountain Capital is acquiring Zep in a transaction expected to be completed on or about that date pending final approvals.

11:09 EDTUALDelta climbs following upgrade, reported fare hike
The shares of Delta Air Lines (DAL) are rising after research firm Wolfe Research upgraded the stock to Outperform from Peer Perform in a note to investors earlier today. Additionally, JPMorgan says Delta appears to have instituted a domestic fare increase yesterday. WHAT'S NEW: Delta's new deal with its pilots on profit sharing removes an unknown that had been facing the company, Wolfe wrote. Additionally, the airlines seems to be implementing additional domestic capacity cuts, the firm stated. As a result, Wolfe slightly increased its passenger revenue per available seat mile, or PRASM, estimate for the company. Furthermore, expectations for Delta's Q3 PRASM have dropped significantly, even though the airlines recently said that its PRASM should turn positive in Q4. Consensus estimates for Delta now look "reasonable" for this year and beatable in 2016, according to Wolfe, which set a $62 price target on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: JPMorgan said Delta appears to have instituted an additional, $2 one-way across-the-board domestic fare increase yesterday, following last week's industry-wide increase. The firm sees "no harm" in Delta trying, but adds it would be surprised to see material support from the discounters. JPMorgan said it remains "puzzled" as to why airline industry stock sentiment is so negative since discipline among the companies is "alive and kicking." The firm has an Overweight rating on Delta. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded airline operators include American Airlines (AAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV) and United Continental (UAL). PRICE ACTIOn: In late morning trading, Delta rose 2.5% to $42.38.

10:21 EDTUALSouthwest, Spirit retreat after analysts downgrade shares
Southwest Airlines (LUV) and Spirit Airlines (SAVE) are falling after both airline stocks received downgrades from research firms this morning. Barclays downgraded Southwest, while Credit Suisse cut its rating on Spirit. WHAT'S NEW: Barclays analyst David Fintzen lowered his rating on Southwest to Underweight from Overweight, saying that the stock's valuation is above peer levels even though its outlook is no better than its large competitors. Moreover, the company's margins could drop in 2016 because of its "outsized growth," the analyst warned. Credit Suisse analyst Julie Yates downgraded Spirit Airlines to Neutral from Outperform, as she believes the airlines is facing more aggressive competitor fares. American Airlines (AAL) is offering lower fares than Spirit on five of the latter company's ten top ten routes for travel two months from reservation dates, the analyst stated. Moreover, Spirit's second quarter margins may come in below its guidance and the airline will probably reduce its margin outlook when its reports its Q2 results in late July, Yates predicted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Barclays' Fintzen was more upbeat on Spirit, continuing to identify it as his top pick among airlines. More broadly, Fintzen remains generally upbeat on airline stocks, predicting that the industry's profitability will be "far more durable" than the market believes. The sector's competition is balanced, and it has increased its capacity and airplane purchases much less than in prior periods of oil price declines, according to Fintzen. Additionally, the airline stocks' multiples remain overly depressed, he believes. He says that the following stock in the sector can climb about 50%: Spirit, American, Delta (DAL), and United (UAL). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Southwest dropped 2.2% to $33.11 and Spirit slid 2.4% to $60.91.
05:41 EDTUALSouthwest downgraded to Underweight from Overweight at Barclays
Barclays analyst David Fintzen downgraded Southwest (LUV) two notches to Underweight from Overweight saying the company has moved from a margin expansion story to an "average" big four airline trading at a premium valuation. Fintzen expects Southwest's growth to normalize in 2016 and cut his price target for shares to $39 from $50. The stock closed yesterday down 7c to $33.84. The analyst coupled the downgrade with an upgrade of Align Technology (ALGN) to Equal Weight. He remains bullish on airlines, with Spirit Airlines (SAVE) remaining his top pick, followed by Delta Air Lines (DAL), American Airlines (AAL) and United Continental (UAL). Fintzen sees 50% average upside in those four names.
