Caterpillar upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman
Goldman analyst Jerry Revich upgraded Caterpillar to Buy and raised its price target to $112 from $76 based on expectations for structurally higher margins in this cycle. The analyst believes stabilization in capex budgets suggest eventual normalization in mining equipment share of capex budgets. Following, the completion of the tier 4 product cycle, Revich said Caterpillar's R&D/sales is at 30+ year highs at 5.2% of sales, driving his view of flat to down R&D spending in a recovery, which is a 5% tailwind to incremental margins. The analyst sees $8 in mid-cycle earnings, well ahead of investor expectations, and said mutual funds are broadly underweight Caterpillar 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.

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.
