Credit Suisse analyst Ralph Profiti upgraded Teck Resources to Outperform to reflect upside to his coking coal outlook and higher copper and zinc price forecasts. Profiti's coking coal forecast remains unchanged beyond Q4 but sees compelling valuation for Teck in a tighter coking coal market in 2017, reflation of the steelmaking cost curve, stronger base metals prices, and equity scarcity among global coking coal plays.

Multiple companies could pursue Scottrade, says Wells Fargo
After Bloomberg reported that Scottrade is working with an adviser to explore selling itself, and the article mentioned Ameritrade (AMTD) as a potential suitor, Wells Fargo says that Charles Schwab (SCHW) and E-Trade (ETFC) could "also have interest" in Scottrade. The firm says that the deal could be accretive by double digit percentage levels for all of the potential suitors named. However, ti says that Ameritrade "may be the most logical buyer," since E-Trade just closed on an acquisition and Schwab has sought to place less emphasis trading. The firm keeps an Outperform rating on E-Trade and Market Perform ratings on Schwab and TD Ameritrade.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Bristol-Myers (BMY) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman with analyst Jami Rubin saying disappointing CM-26 data adds a greater level of uncertainty to future trials. 2. Pfizer (PFE) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Jeffrey Holford citing a lack of positive catalysts. 3. Coach (COH) downgraded to Mixed from Positive at OTR Global citing checks that indicate less competitive offerings, reduced promotions, and feedback of some share loss by store managers. 4. E-Trade (ETFC) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill. 5. Deckers Brands (DECK) downgraded to Negative from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst Sam Poser saying he believes the health of the UGG brand is clearly at risk as the company has already started promotional activity.

Citi 'inclined to fade' September rally in TD Ameritrade
Citi analyst William Katz attributes the 5% September rally in shares of TD Ameritrade (AMTD) to speculation around a possible acquisition of E-Trade (ETFC). The rally in the shares likely discounts the earnings accretion from such a merger, Katz tells investors in a research note. He believes TD Ameritrade shares at current levels leave "no room for a bad outcome," which he defines as the company deciding not to pursue the deal or E-Trade acquiring Scottrade. As such, Katz says he's "inclined to fade the rally" in TD Ameritrade. The analyst has a Neutral rating on the shares with a $31.50 price target. TD Ameritrade is up 2% in early trading to $35.08.

Wells recommends owning Banc of California into Thursday's results
With the stock down 29% yesterday and nearly 50% in two months, "the damage has been done at this point," Wells Fargo analyst Timur Braziler tells investors in a research note. He recommends staying long the shares into Thursday's earnings report, expecting it will be a good one. Braziler looks for a more detailed explanation on the earnings call regarding the company's ties with Jason Galanis, which a short report detailed yesterday. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on Banc of California shares with a $23-$25 price target range. UBS this morning placed its Buy rating on the stock under review.

UBS places Banc of California rating under review
UBS analyst David Eads placed his Buy rating and $28 price target on shares of Banc of California under review after an "anonymous report posted on Seeking Alpha" discussed ties between the company's board and a convicted felon. Banc of California issued a press release last night but is yet to fully address the concerns raised in the report, Eads tells investors in a research note. He believes management needs to provide a "thorough disclosure" of their ties to the individual when reporting earnings on Thursday morning. Eads wants more clarity before reinstating his rating on the stock. Banc of California closed yesterday down 29% to $11.26.
