BlackRock downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman
Goldman analyst Alexander Blostein removed BlackRock from the Conviction Buy List given expectations for a deceleration in near-term organic fee rate growth, which will limit multiple expansion. The analyst maintains his Buy rating and $400 price target saying BlackRock will deliver industry leading organic growth, but a more difficult mix shift could pressure the firm's overall fee rate/organic revenue growth.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Medivation (MDVN) upgraded to Buy at Canaccord by analyst John Newman who cited increased confidence in the Xtandi breast cancer program as well as "encouraging data" for talazoparib in ovarian cancer. Newman added that the latter is wholly owned by Medivation, meaning 100% of profits will flow through to the company. 2. BlackRock (BLK) upgraded to Buy at Citi with analyst William Katz saying that he views the company as an "increasingly differentiated winner" following the Department of Labor fiduciary rule. The analyst sees a "significant runway" of growth for BlackRock's iShares and highlights its opportunity to commercialize FutureAdvisor. 3. Devon Energy (DVN) upgraded to Overweight at Morgan Stanley by analyst Evan Callo, who said the recent stabilization in oil price increases the likelihood Devon will be successful with asset sales and places focus on E&P future upside to medium-term commodity price recovery and operating leverage. 4. Lennox (LII) upgraded to Buy at Seaport Global with analyst Walt Liptak saying Q1 commercial HVAC and residential HVAC trends were better-than-expected and suggest 2016 is tracking better than expected. 5. Panera Bread (PNRA) upgraded to Buy at Jefferies by analyst Alexander Slagle saying the market is underestimating the company's earnings power over the next few years. KeyBanc analyst Chris O'Cull added that the company's investments over the past few years will drive earnings growth for the first time in two years and push results above Street expectations.
