On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Chesapeake (CHK) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Wunderlich with analyst Jason Wangler saying the company's assets are performing and its balance sheet is improving. 2. GameStop (GME) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Hilliard Lyons. 3. Finisar (FNSR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at MKM Partners with analyst Michael Genovese saying he is "extremely upbeat on the Optical components/module industry," and Chinese demand for 10G and 100G Optical modules appears it can stay strong for multiple years. 4. Randgold (GOLD) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with the firm citing the recent pullback in the shares and the potential for a dividend raise in 2017. 5. Teekay LNG (TGP) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo analyst Michael Webber saying the discount to net asset value and the company's progress around financing its order book make the valuation "particularly compelling."

Underperform
Chesapeake initiated with an Underperform at FBR Capital
FBR Capital analyst Joseph Allman started Chesapeake Energy with an Underperform rating and $5 price target. The company's "debt and transportation commitments hole still appears too deep to dig out of," Allman tells investors in a research note. He views Chesapeake's equity as "significantly overvalued" and thinks the company's financial condition "will continue to be stressed."

Sell
Chesapeake liquidity better but debt still too high, says UBS
UBS analyst William Featherston previewed the Chesapeake analyst day and said he expects management to shift from its defensive strategy over the last two years to a more offensive one by targeting annual volume growth to resume in 2018. The analyst said the company's liquidity position has improved, but the debt level still remains too high. Featherston maintained his Sell rating and $4.50 price target on Chesapeake shares.
