Owens-Illinois (OI -2.5%) trades lower today, ignoring an early morning upgrade to Buy on valuation at BofA/Merrill Lynch. The firm says headwinds for the company have diminished and most of the negative news and earnings revisions appear behind it. Management also appears more attuned to capital returns and free cash flow generation, which warrants an expansion in valuation multiples.
