Under Armour upgraded to Overweight after teen survey at Piper Jaffray

As previously reported, Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy upgraded Under Armour (UA) to Overweight from Neutral following the firm's semi-annual proprietary "Taking Stock With Teens" survey. The survey findings support on-going traction for Under Armour within footwear and the women's segment, noted Murphy, who raised her price target on the stock to $44 from $40. Based on the survey's results, other analysts at the firm also downgraded Estee Lauder (EL) to Neutral from Overweight and upgraded Zumiez (ZUMZ) to Overweight from Neutral.

Under Armour upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Tom Nikic upgraded Under Armour to Outperform saying "noise" from the Sports Authority's bankruptcy is fading while distribution expansion could lead to sales reacceleration over the next 12-18 months.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Mylan (MYL) upgraded to Strong Buy from Market Perform at Raymond James with Elliot WIlbur saying the Department of Justice settlement over EpiPen rebates eliminates a significant overhang on shares enabling the focus to be back on fundamentals. 2. Under Armour (UA) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Tom Nikic saying "noise" from the Sports Authority's bankruptcy is fading while distribution expansion could lead to sales re-acceleration over the next 12-18 months. 3. Deere (DE) and AGCO (AGCO) were upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo. 4. Dow Chemical (DOW) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst John Roberts saying the merger with DuPont (DD) could gain regulatory approval and that the stock is "now too cheap to ignore." 5. Exelixis (EXEL) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Edward Tenthoff saying the data are "good enough" to file a supplemental new drug application and could drive off-label front-line RCC use.

Chinese tax changes modestly positive for cosmetics makers, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Stephanie Wissink noted that the Chinese Ministry of Finance has reduced or eliminated the consumption tax on all cosmetic products as of October 1 to stimulate demand and growth, which she views as a modest positive for Estee Lauder (EL), Avon Products (AVP) and Coty (COTY). Of the three, Estee Lauder has the highest exposure to China, which makes up about 10% of its annual revenues, Wissink added.

As previously reported, Piper Jaffray analyst Steph Wissink downgraded Estee Lauder to Neutral from Overweight following the firm's semi-annual proprietary "Taking Stock With Teens" survey. The company's brands have ceded share both year-over-year and sequentially since spring, noted Wissink, who added that she believes its legacy brands are less able to rely on traditional marketing and promotion to gain share. The analyst cut her price target on Estee Lauder to $90 from $98.
