Deere to fight DoJ challenge to Precision Planting deal, WSJ says

Deere & Co. (DE) said the the U.S. Department of Justice is unfairly accusing the company of attempting to monopolize a non-existent market with its challenge of the proposed acquisition of Monsanto's (MON) seed-planting equipment business, the Wall Street Journal reports. The government intends to block Deere from acquiring Precision Planting on grounds that the transaction would suppress competition for technology that allows farmers to plant crops at faster rates, the report notes. In a response to the government's challenge of the potential deal, Deere denied that the takeover of Precision Planting would provide it with 86% of all U.S. sales of high-speed precision planting systems, the report says.

Baird remains cautious on Deere after survey of ag equipment dealers
Baird analyst Mig Dobre remains cautious on Deere shares following a "stubbornly weak" agricultural equipment orders survey of dealers. The report pointed to a third year of equipment early order program declines, with declines only marginally improved from last year. Dobre feels the potential magnitude of decline in 2017 could surprise negatively. Dobre maintained his Neutral rating and lowered his price target to $86 from $90 on Deere shares.

Deere upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Andrew Casey upgraded Deere to Outperform after hosting investor meetings with management. After three years of global farm equipment demand decline, the market may be bottoming and turning positive, Casey tells investors in a research note. Deere is seeing improvement in Brazil, parts of Europe, Ukraine, Russia, India and other regions, the analyst contends. He raised his price target range for the shares to $100-$103 from $85-$88.

AGCO upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Andrew Casey upgraded AGCO (AGCO) to Outperform saying that after three years of demand decline, the company will benefit from an anticipated bottoming in global farm equipment demand. More favorable indications in Brazil and Europe should benefit approximately 70% of the company's revenue mix, Casey tells investors in a research note. He raised his price target range for the shares to $60-$63 from $46-$49. The analyst this morning also upgraded Deere (DE) to Outperform.

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. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Monsanto (MON) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying the risk in the shares is "less than what the market assumes." 2. Barclays (BCS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at HSBC citing the pending disposal of non-core businesses and resulting value creation. 3. Etsy (ETSY) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Monness Crespi with the firm's analyst believing that Etsy shares can still move higher and sees a solid opportunity for upward revisions from improving conversion rates due to enhanced search and mobile functionality, expanding take rates, and advanced cross-boarder commerce capabilities with vendors. 4. Clovis (CLVS) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Kennen MacKay saying the potential for a takeover "outweighs concerns surrounding patent life, limited experience in platinum resistant/refractory patients, and PARPi competition." 5. Jabil Circuit (JBL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Steven Milunovich saying the company's cash flow is nearing an inflection amid an upturn in its Apple (AAPL) business. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Monsanto upgraded on acquisition at Bernstein
As noted earlier, Bernstein upgraded Monsanto (MON) to Market Perform from Underperform. Analyst Jonas Oxgaard upgraded the stock after Bayer (BAYRY) agreed to buy Monsanto. However, he warned that "it's too early to tell" whether regulators will approve the deal, and he says that the risk is "skewed to the downside in the near-term." He recommends that investors avoid the stock for 6-9 months. Target to $105 from $90.
