On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: Alibaba (BABA) upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James, to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie, and to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman. 2. 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.
