On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. CBS (CBS) upgraded to Buy from Sell at UBS with analyst Doug Mitchelson saying he sees any deal with Viacom (VIA) as priced into CBS shares already. He also has increased confidence in consensus estimates for CBS and sees further upside if the national TV ad market and CBS' ratings remain strong. 2. Pandora (P) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman with analyst Heath Terry saying he sees significant upside to out-year estimates from premium radio and on-demand subscriptions. He expects competition to ease as new entrants slow and existing providers focus on profitability and limit "free" models. 3. Las Vegas Sands (LVS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Shaun Kelley saying shares remain fairly under-owned and thinks estimate revisions will move higher due to market momentum, better ROI for Parisian, Cotai infrastructure additions, and optionality from Japan and real estate. 4. KBR (KBR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Chad Dillard saying yesterday's 10% post-guidance cut selloff is overdone and backward-looking. 5. West Marine (WMAR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Pandora deal negative, says Pacific Crest
Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves says that Pandora's deals with music labels create a business model that "is fraught with a lack of limited control of content costs and a lack of incremental leverage on operating expenses." The analyst says that the agreement "cedes control of (Pandora's) content costs to the major labels," significantly reducing his confidence in the company's profitability going forward. He keeps an Underweight rating on the stock.

Pandora improved monetization could offset higher royalties, says SunTrust
After Pandora announced direct deals with most of the major music labels, SunTrust analyst Robert Peck says that the deals will enable the company "to launch new interactive services and enhance existing products." He thinks that improved monetization as a result of more expensive ads could enable it to offset "potential cost increases" stemming from higher royalties. He keeps an $18 price target and Buy rating on the shares.

Deutsche sees 'realistic path' to KBR becoming $20-$25 stock
Deutsche Bank analyst Chad Dillard says he sees a "realistic path" towards KBR becoming a $20-$25 stock as the market beings to appreciate the company's transformation to a government/technical services company. The analyst, however, keeps a Hold rating on KBR with a $14 price target. The engineering and construction company closed yesterday up 10c to $14.50. Consensus estimates for 2017-2018 are too high and a reset in expectations could cause near-term price volatility, Dillard tells investors in a research note. He is "warming" to KBR's transformation but expects a more attractive entry point "down the road."

He upped his price target for KBR shares to $16 from $14.
