Buy
Macy's upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Paul Lejuez upgraded Macy's (M) to Buy saying an attractive free cash flow and dividend yield makes the risk/reward attractive at current levels. While the long term structural challenges to department stores are unlikely to go away, Macy's is "doing the right things for the business," Lejuez tells investors in a research note. He calls the retailer "one of the stronger horses in the race" and sees upcoming quarterly results as potential catalysts. Lejuez keeps a $44 price target for Macy's shares. The analyst points out that Macy's 4.4% dividend yielding 4.4% trails only Kohl's (KSS) and Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) among the retailers he covers. Macy's closed yesterday down 59c to $34.68.

Abercrombie & Fitch downgraded on lack of visibility at Stifel
As noted earlier, Stifel downgraded Abercrombie & Fitch to Hold from Buy. Following the company's Q2 results, Stifel analyst Richard Jaffe says there is a lack of visibility on a near-term improvement by the company. Given the company's warning that its comps will remain challenged in 2H16, Jaffe thinks that the company's merchandise isn't pleasing consumers, while it's marketing campaign is failing to drive traffic.

Foot Locker (FL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley with analyst Mitchel Kummetz citing continued strength in athletic footwear. 3. NVIDIA (NVDA) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Mitch Stevens saying the company reported " blow out" results, as its data center business beat expectations by a significant amount. 4. BlackBerry (BBRY) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Steven Li saying BlackBerry's narrative is shifting towards software and sees 80% recurring revenues, 15% organic growth, and 30% Earnings Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortization margins. Given the profit growth and profitability profile of software, Li raised BlackBerry's price target to $10.50 from $8. 5. Air Products (APD) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying the company is likely to have a "far stronger" capital structure following the close of the sale of its Performance Materials business and the spin of Versum Materials to its shareholders.
