On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Gap (GPS) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Deutsche Bank with analyst Paul Trussell saying the company's near-to medium-term setup is more favorable amid easing compares over the next few months and an improved apparel backdrop. 2. DuPont Fabros (DFT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Matthew Heinz saying the company's current valuation reflects an expectation for weaker Q3 leasing activity. 3. Ralph Lauren (RL) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman with analyst Lindsay Drucker Mann saying CEO Stefan Larsson's turnaround is firmly in place. 4. Restoration Hardware (RH) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Buckingham with the firm's analyst believing $1.60-$1.80 fiscal 2016 earnings are achievable, reducing the risk of further downward earnings revisions. 5. Vivint Solar (VSLR) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman with analyst Brian Lee saying the company is "moving on the path toward recovery."

Sell
Gap distribution center fire impact not done being felt, says UBS
UBS analyst Michael Binetti noted Gap's distribution center fire in August had a significant impact on September sales and that the company estimates that the fire will be a 3 point drag to October same-store sales as well. Additionally, Binetti said Florida, Georgia and South Carolina account for 10% of the company's North America store count and that Gap will close some stores amid this weekend's hurricane, further impacting October sales. The company mentioned that merchant margins were higher than expected which should offset any negative earnings impact, however. The analyst is cautious of the company's ability to pull back on promotions to drive a comp inflection and reiterated his Sell rating and $16 price target on Gap shares.

DuPont Fabros upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Frank Louthan assumed coverage on DuPont Fabros and upgraded shares to Outperform from Market Perform and established a $47 price target. Louthan said Dupont is benefiting from hyperscale demand and believes new management is actively pursuing larger hyperscale deals, and as other providers shift away from the wholesale model it is creating a scarcity value for its product. The analyst said shares trade at a discount to peers and believes as investors become more comfortable with its improved role in the marketplace and its potential for further growth, multiple expansion will follow.
