Alaska Air upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Buckingham

Buckingham upgraded Alaska Air to Buy and raised its price target to $84 from $65. The firm's analyst expects the Virgin America (VA) merger to go through and revised estimates for the combined company well above consensus, and sees earnings potentially approaching $8.00-$8.50 beyond 2017 as Alaska adopts Virgin's best practices on ancillary revenue.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Apple (AAPL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Tavis McCourt saying he expects a "long, slow re-rating" of the shares as the iPhone maker shifts to a consumer staple. 2. Linear Technology (LLTC) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi, to Sector Weight from Underweight at Pacific Crest, and to Market Perform from Underperform at Raymond James. 3. Analog Devices (ADI) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer, to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley, to Buy from Hold at Evercore ISI, and to Neutral from Sell at Goldman. 4. Alaska Air (ALK) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jamie Baker saying the shares at current levels are "simply too cheap to ignore." 5. Chesapeake (CHK) upgraded to Accumulate from Hold at Johnson Rice. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Overweight
Alaska Air a top pick going into year-end at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Rajee Lalwani said Alaska Air offers substantial upside into year end with favorable near-term pricing, more manageable supply into 2017, and material accretion from the Virgin acquisition into 2017. The analyst said Alaska is deserving of a much higher multiple and is a top pick into year end. Lalwani rates Alaska Air an Overweight with an $85 price target on shares.
