On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. McDonald's (MCD) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird by analyst David Tarantino, who believes the stock's risk/reward has become more favorable following the year-to-date underperformance. The analyst admits that slower U.S. industry demand trends and challenging upcoming comparisons pose a "short-term headwind," but thinks the company's "attractive" dividend yield can help to limit further downside risk in the shares. 2. United Continental (UAL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James, with analyst Savanthi Syth applauding the selection of Scott Kirby as President and Andrew Levy as CFO. Syth said both have strong industry experience and has increased conviction United will reduce its margin gap relative to its peers over the next 12-18 months. 3. VMware (VMW) upgraded to Buy from Neutral by SunTrust analyst John Rizzuto, who says that the company has effectively diversified beyond its server virtualization roots. The analyst, who expects the company's revenue to bottom this year and accelerate through the end of the decade, raised his price target on the stock to $92 from $64. 4. Barracuda (CUDA) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at Pacific Crest, as analyst Rob Owens said he's seeing improved trends due to the company's renewed product alignment and cloud-centric channel marketing campaign. 5. Fortinet (FTNT) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at Pacific Crest by Rob Owens, who believes management's focus on enhanced profitability should drive share outperformance.

Chipotle probably won't be bought by McDonald's, says Buckingham
Buckingham analyst John Zolidis says he's been asked "more than once" if Chipotle could be acquired by McDonald's. The analyst says that Chipotle would provide McDonald's with "a growth vehicle," as McDonald's could accelerate Chipotle's international expansion and use its expertise to convert the burrito chain to a franchised model. However, the analyst says there is little chance of such a deal occurring. Additionally, after an investor announced a 10% stake in Chipotle last night, the analyst does not think there's a clear path to unlocking shareholder value in Chipotle. However, he continues to expect Chipotle's sales to rebound to levels that are similar to those it had before its food safety issues. He reiterates a $547 price target and Buy rating.

JPMorgan says buy three restaurant stocks after recent weakness
JPMorgan analyst John Ivankoe recommends using recent volatility to buy McDonald's (MCD), Starbucks (SBUX) and Yum! Brands (YUM), but not Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG). On Chipotle, the analyst recommends using meaningful price weakness, closer to or below $400, to accumulate the shares.

Outperform
McDonald's SSS checks sluggish but stable, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Jason West said US franchise same-store-sales checks remained sluggish in July and August and are likely running in the +1-2% range, inline with investor expectations. West expects same-store-sales to be flat to slightly down in Q4 due to difficult comps but believes investors are already pricing in a weak Q4 for the US business. The analyst continues to view McDonald's defensive characteristics as attractive in the current environment and its discounted valuation relative to peers as unwarranted. West reiterates his Outperform rating and $132 price target on McDonald's shares.
