Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Lockheed Martin (LMT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Joseph DeNardi saying he is pleased with the company's comments regarding its 2018 free cash flow outlook, and he thinks that it could benefit from increased defense spending in the wake of the election results. 2. Philip Morris (PM) upgraded to Buy from Outperform at CLSA with analyst Michael Levy citing the recent pullback for his rating change and said he sees the company adding to its buyback. 3. Citi (C) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analysts led by Betsy Graseck saying the Republican sweep is positive for all financial stocks due to increased growth, higher rates, lower taxes, and less regulation. 4. U.S. Steel (X) and AK Steel (AKS) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley. 5. L Brands (LB), Kohl's (KSS), and Chico's(CHS) were upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi, while Chico's was also upgraded to Outperform from Peer Perform at Wolfe Research.

lululemon downgraded to Neutral on increased discounting at Credit Suisse
As previously reported, Credit Suisse downgraded lululemon to Neutral from Outperform. Analyst Christian Buss said survey results indicate markdown intensity has increased this quarter to up 2.7%, higher than the 2.5% increase year-over-year and 2% sequentially, with the largest discounting in Woman's Tops. The analyst has reduced conviction the company can sustain topline momentum and lowered his FY16 comp estimate to 5.1% from 6.2%, FY17 to 3.8% from 5.9%, and lowered its price target to $53 from $76 to reflect a lower multiple.

Citi calls lululemon investor concerns misunderstandings
Citi analyst Paul Lejuez points out that shares of lululemon are down 30% since the company reported Q2 results. Investor concerns center around the low-single-digit decline in store traffic as well as the level of clearance on the retailer's website. There are some misunderstandings related to these concerns and fears are exaggerated, Lejuez tells investors in a research note. As lululemon grows its store and sales base, more clearance is natural, the analyst contends. Further, he believes all classes of stores are comping positive. He feels investors have concerns about older classes of stores comping down. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on lululemon with an $85 price target. The stock closed Friday down 77c to $57.00.

FBR Capital analyst Susan Anderson reiterates an Outperform rating on Carter's (CRI) and adds the shares to her firm's Alpha Generator list. The 24% pullback since the company reported Q2 earnings provides a "good opportunity to get into a high-quality name," Anderson tells investors in a research note. The analyst removed lululemon (LULU) as a short from the Alpha Generator list but keeps an Underperform rating on the stock. Anderson expects continued pressure on lululemon shares from slowing same-store-sales.

Gap risk/reward balanced at current levels, says Baird
Baird analyst Mark Altschwager noted Gap's Q3 results were mixed, as the company reported in-line earnings but a big gross margins beat. The analyst said the gross margins beat was due to one-time factors and that cautious guidance suggested a Q4 retrenchment in margins. With its recent share price appreciation, Altschwager feels the risk/reward is balanced. Altschwager maintained his Neutral rating and $28 price target on Gap shares.

New wearables could enable Fossil to hit high end of guidance, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says that the successful launch of Fossil's (FOSL) new wearables collection, including the Michael Kors (KORS) Access Line, could enable Fossil to hit the high end of its Q3 guidance range. Wells says that the Access Line's success could lift the company's Q2 sales by $12M-$14M. However, the firm warns that the outlook for Michael Kors Access for the holiday season is "cloudy," since the products' success last quarter was party due to beating the Apple (AAPL) Watch 2 to market by nearly two weeks. Now that Apple's new watch has been released, the growth of Fossil made watches "could moderate substantially," the firm warns. Nonetheless, it raised its price target on Fossil to $25-$27 from $23-$25 and on Michael Kors to $50-$52 from $48-$50. However, it keeps Market Perform ratings on both stocks.
