On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. T-Mobile (TMUS) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo, with analyst Jennifer Fritzsche saying the company's free cash flow should ramp significantly in 2017. T-Mobile should also see continued positive momentum in subscriber growth and be helped by M&A speculation post the Presidential election, said Fritzsche, who raised her price target range for the shares to $52-$54 from $48-$50. 2. KLA-Tencor (KLAC) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen by analyst Timothy Arcuri, who views the shares as "too interesting to ignore" regardless of the Lam Research (LRCX) deal outcome. KLA's risk/reward, even if the deal breaks, is now 3:1 to the upside, which is hard to find in semis, Arcuri tells investors in a research note. 3. Allegheny Technologies (ATI) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank, with Deutsche Bank analyst Jorge Beristain saying leverage concerns have eased following the closure of the company's Rowley facility. Management is acting to exit low-margin stainless products, said Beristain. 4. CBL & Associates (CBL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies, as analyst Omotayo Okusanya thinks "several issues" that have been an overhang on the shares are now resolved or are in the process of resolution. The company's portfolio quality is rising while its balance sheet is in better shape, Okusanya tells investors. 5. AstraZeneca upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus.
