Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1.

UPGRADE

Buy
Caterpillar upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman
Goldman analyst Jerry Revich upgraded Caterpillar to Buy and raised its price target to $112 from $76 based on expectations for structurally higher margins in this cycle. The analyst believes stabilization in capex budgets suggest eventual normalization in mining equipment share of capex budgets. Following, the completion of the tier 4 product cycle, Revich said Caterpillar's R&D/sales is at 30+ year highs at 5.2% of sales, driving his view of flat to down R&D spending in a recovery, which is a 5% tailwind to incremental margins. The analyst sees $8 in mid-cycle earnings, well ahead of investor expectations, and said mutual funds are broadly underweight Caterpillar shares.
