On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Monsanto (MON) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying the risk in the shares is "less than what the market assumes." 2. Barclays (BCS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at HSBC citing the pending disposal of non-core businesses and resulting value creation. 3. Etsy (ETSY) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Monness Crespi with the firm's analyst believing that Etsy shares can still move higher and sees a solid opportunity for upward revisions from improving conversion rates due to enhanced search and mobile functionality, expanding take rates, and advanced cross-boarder commerce capabilities with vendors. 4. Clovis (CLVS) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Kennen MacKay saying the potential for a takeover "outweighs concerns surrounding patent life, limited experience in platinum resistant/refractory patients, and PARPi competition." 5. Jabil Circuit (JBL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Steven Milunovich saying the company's cash flow is nearing an inflection amid an upturn in its Apple (AAPL) business.

Monsanto upgraded on acquisition at Bernstein
As noted earlier, Bernstein upgraded Monsanto (MON) to Market Perform from Underperform. Analyst Jonas Oxgaard upgraded the stock after Bayer (BAYRY) agreed to buy Monsanto. However, he warned that "it's too early to tell" whether regulators will approve the deal, and he says that the risk is "skewed to the downside in the near-term." He recommends that investors avoid the stock for 6-9 months. Target to $105 from $90.

Citi upgrades Dow and DuPont, says DowDuPont could be 'stock to own' in 2017
As previously reported, Citi analyst P.J. Juvekar upgraded shares of both Dow Chemical (DOW) and DuPont (DD), each to Buy from Hold, citing their "massive" cost-cutting opportunity after their proposed merger goes through as well as the potential for upside to the companies' stated $3B synergy target. If their deal gets completed, the combined Dow-DuPont would "be the stock to own in 2017," said Juvekar, who raised the firm's price target on DuPont shares to $76 from $72 and increased the target for Dow shares to $59 from $55.

Halliburton (HAL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Societe General. 5. Coty (COTY) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Olivia Tong saying she believes Coty is at the beginning of a potential transformation with the pending closure of the P&G Beauty deal this week that could bring increased scale as well as a more targeted operational structure.
