Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ford (F) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Daiwa. 2. Chevron (CVX) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral at Goldman with analyst Neil Mehta saying that after a decade of relatively flat production, the company is positioned for "strong volume improvement." 3. Fossil (FOSL) upgraded to Mixed from Negative at OTR Global with the firm saying checks indicate the response to Michael Kors (KORS) watches has been strong. 4. ADTRAN (ADTN) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Northland with analyst Tim Savageaux citing the share pullback over merger concerns of its top customer CenturyLink (CTL). 5. Deere (DE) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst Mircea Dobre saying that North American large ag equipment is back to multi-decade lows and there is a sign of demand emerging outside the U.S. and there are meaningful cost savings in the pipeline.

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.

Signet Jewelers removed from Priority Stock List at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Ike Boruchow removed Signet Jewelers from his Priority Stock List saying his Q3 store work indicated "ongoing choppiness" in traffic trends and elevated levels of promotion. The analyst, however, still believes the company is well-positioned in the industry over the longer-term. He lowered his Q4 earnings estimate to $3.82 from $4.09 but keeps an Outperform rating on Signet with a $100-$105 price target range. Boruchow believes the stock's risk/reward remains favorable.

Credit Suisse added Hormel Foods (HRL) to the US Focus List, replacing Kellogg (K). The firm Investment Policy Committee said analyst Rob Moskow's FY17 above consensus estimate reflects his view that the Street underestimates earnings momentum, is best positioned to capitalize on increased demand for convenient protein products and deflationary meat cost trends, higher margins from its mix to value-added products, and high short interest that will dissipate. Moskow rates Hormel an Outperform with a $43 price target.

Piper ups price targets after Rental Sentiment Survey
Piper Jaffray analyst George Tong raised his price targets for United Rentals (URI) and Neff (NEFF) following his firm's Rental Sentiment Survey of rental executives. The results increased the analyst's confidence in a "strengthening equipment rental demand outlook driven by aggressive planned increases in infrastructure spending under a Trump administration." Checks show stronger expectations for rental revenue growth over the next year, backed by an uptick in both rental rate and rental volume growth trends, Tong tells investors in a research note. He also believes increases in infrastructure spending will likely benefit 2018 estimates. The analyst raised his price target for United Rentals to $112 from $95 and for Neff to $15 from $13 citing a stronger spending outlook. Tong is a buyer of both stocks.
