BUZZ-Genuine Parts: BAML cuts rating, sees better ways to play auto sector

Tue 30th October, 2018 5:37pm
** Genuine Parts  GPC.N  down 2 pct after BofA Merrill cuts
to "underperform" from "neutral"
    ** BAML says while GPC's auto parts unit will likely see
accelerated growth, even that will not be enough to offset the
expected weakness in other two units
    ** Says after Essendant  ESND.O  pulled out of a deal, GPC
stuck with office products unit, "an unloved asset" that lowers
its overall margin and growth profiles*:nNRA6xps9n
    ** BAML expects office products unit to post negative comp
sales for foreseeable future and says 2018 is the peak for comp
sales growth in GPC's industrial products unit
    ** Says until GPC lays out a new business strategy,
investors will lean toward GPC's pure-play auto parts retail
peers: Advance Auto  AAP.N , AutoZone  AZO.N , O'Reilly  ORLY.O
