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.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Twitter (TWTR) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Evercore ISI with analyst Ken Sena citing the recent pullback in the shares. 2. Tyson Foods (TSN) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Kenneth Zaslow saying he thinks that the company's "strong underlying fundamentals" should enable its fiscal 2017 profits to beat expectations, and he says that the shares are undervalued. 3. Virgin America (VA) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Jamie Baker saying regulatory approval of the pending Alaska Air (ALK) takeover "remains more likely than not." 4. Cummins (CMI) was upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral and Caterpillar (CAT) was upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman. 5.
