Deustche says infrastructure upside not fully priced into Machinery names
Deutsche Bank analyst Nicole DeBlase expects infrastructure stimulus to be more of a 2018 "earnings tailwind" with legislation unlikely until the spring of 2017 at the earliest. She's skeptical that the rally in Machinery stocks can continue for an extended amount of time, but feels only 50% of the total benefit has been priced in, to date. Caterpillar (CAT) is the best way to play a U.S. infrastructure stimulus, DeBlase tells investors in a research note. She raised her price target for the shares to $102 from $95. The analyst also raised her price target for Buy-rated Oshkosh (OSK) to $72 from $65, for Hold-rated Deere (DE) to $95 from $90 and for Sell-rated CNH Industrial (CNHI) to $7.20 from $6.24.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on the today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Priceline (PCLN) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley by analysts led by Brian Nowak, who raised his price target to $1,525 from $1,330. The analyst sees improving ad efficiency driving increased profitability and material market share gains in alt. accommodations. Nowak sees a more rational ad environment resulting in margin improvement and raised 2017 room nights by 2%, with alt. accommodations set to grow 34% 2015-2018 CAGR, driving bookings growth to 28.5%. 2. Motorola Solutions (MSI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman by analyst Matthew Cabral after assuming primary coverage of the shares. The company's renewed focus on revenue growth and spending management is a positive shift in strategy, Cabral tells investors in a research note. He believes the shares at current levels offer a compelling entry point. Cabral raised his price target for Motorola Solutions to $81 from $74. The firm also upgraded Nokia (NOK) to Buy from Neutral. 3. Parker-Hannifin (PH) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo by analyst Andrew Casey, citing the recent pullback in shares, low investor expectations and positive fluid power distributor channel checks. The analyst keeps a $117-$120 price target range for the shares. 4. Marriott (MAR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Evercore ISI by analyst Rich Hightower, who trimmed his price target to $75 from $76. The analyst has now fully incorporated Starwood's (HOT) numbers into the model and said weakness following Brexit has created a buying opportunity. 5. Yamana Gold (AUY) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse by analyst Anita Soni, who raised her price target to $6.50 from $4.50 in conjunction with an increased gold price forecast. The firm has increased its gold price forecast to a peak of $1,500 in Q1 2017. The analyst also upgraded Silver Wheaton (SLW) to Outperform from Neutral and IAMGOLD (IAG) to Neutral from Sell.

This overshadowed the secular headwinds facing the company, and its sales guidance seems optimistic, Scribner tells investors in a post-earnings research note. She continues to lack conviction that NetApp will be able to return to growth in FY18. The analyst keeps a Sell rating on the shares with a $25 price target.
