ConAgra risk/reward attractive ahead of Investor Day, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Matthew Grainger said ConAgra risk/reward is still attractive ahead of the upcoming Investor Days despite recent outperformance. The analyst expects management to set expectations for further cost savings that support a further re-rating. Grainger expects pro forma earnings will likely imply modest dilution but sees the risk of a more substantial negative revision as unlikely. He sees multiple paths to value creation including its ability to lever up for M&A, selective divestitures, and potential for renewed focus on Lamb Weston. The analyst rates ConAgra an Overweight with a $53 price target.

Hain Celestial could be worth $63-$70 per share in a takeout, says Maxim
Maxim analyst Anthony Vendetti said Hain Celestial (HAIN) continues to have upside potential near-term and recent M&A activity in the sector substantiates his view that Hain would be a great addition for many companies looking to bolster their organic product lines. Vendetti said Danone's acquisition of Whitewave Foods (WWAV) implies a takeout valuation of Hain between $63-$70 per share and said potential suitors include Campbell Soup (CPB), Coca-Cola (KO), ConAgra Foods (CAG), General Mills (GIS), Kellogg (K), Kraft Heinz (KFT), Mondelez International (MDLZ), and PepsiCo (PEP).

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.

Domino's Pizza upgraded two notches on growth opportunity at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded Domino's Pizza two notches to Buy from Underperform and raised its price target to $175 from $120. Analyst Gregory Francfort believes Domino's has further growth ahead and will take share in the fragmented $34B US pizza category. The analyst expects 7.3% domestic system sales growth over the next six years and said shares discount 6.7% growth. He expects Domino's sales growth to continue driven by modest growth in the quick service pizza category, general market share gains by large chains due to digital ordering advantages, remodeling and relocation upgrades, digital customer data lead following its loyalty rollout, and impressive management.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tesla (TSLA) downgraded to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer with analysts led by Colin Rusch saying they do not view the acquisition of Solar City (SCTY) as the best use of Tesla's capital and human resources given the potential returns on capital possible in the electric industry versus the potential leverage in Tesla's auto platform. 2. SolarCity downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Sven Eenmaa saying the risk/reward looks balanced in the wake of Tesla's bid. 3. AMC Networks (AMCX) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Ryan Fiftal saying 2016 new show launches have missed expectations, making it unlikely the company can grow EBITDA beyond 2016 as declining Walking Dead ratings pressure the top-line. 4. ACADIA (ACAD) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with the firm citing valuation. 5. McDonald's (MCD), Wendy's (WEN), Papa John's (PZZA) and Domino's Pizza (DPZ) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Nomura. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

The analyst maintains a Buy rating and said the recent pullback in Level 3 shares increases the appeal of buybacks and, theoretically, the company could repurchase 60% of its stock over 5 years.
