Aralez Pharmaceuticals (ARLZ)announced it will acquire the U.S. rights to Toprol-XL and its Authorized Generic, or AG, pursuant to an agreement entered into between AstraZeneca (AZN) and Aralez Pharmaceuticals Trading DAC, a subsidiary of Aralez.

The transaction is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2016, subject to customary closing conditions.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades

Pandora (P) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at SunTrust with analyst Robert Peck saying he thinks that a new interactive offering by the company could raise its contribution profit by 4%-9% and that the Street's 2017 estimates for the company "seem conservative."

AstraZeneca (AZN) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Jeffrey Holford saying the company's MYSTIC oncology study could drive 39% share upside if successful. 3.
