On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. TASER (TASR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at CL King with analyst George Godfrey citing strong organic growth, a leading position in body cameras, low international market exposure, accelerating earnings growth and margin expansion, and weapons segment opportunity growth. 2. Sony (SNE) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Hiroshi Taguchi saying the company's shipment growth will likely exceed expectations. 3. U.S. Steel (X) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Deutsche Bank with analyst Jorge Beristain citing his firm's improved steel price outlook as well as the company's' balance sheet refinancing. 4. SunPower (SPWR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with Julien Dumoulin-Smith citing valuation, a strong technology track record and product development, early indications that utility scale margins are proving more intact versus expectations, and a solid balance sheet. 5. Royal Gold (RGLD) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James and to Buy from Neutral at Dundee. Raymond James analyst Phil Russo upgraded Royal Gold to Outperform and increased his price target to $85 from $72 following amended terms at Mt Milligan with new operator Centerra Gold.

Piper Jaffray bullish on GameStop ahead of quarterly results
With GameStop (GME) scheduled to report results next week, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson sees potential for slight July quarter upside driven by May launches of Sony's (SNE) Uncharted 4 and Activision's (ATVI) Overwatch. Further, the analyst expects largely unchanged fiscal year guide, and anticipates improving software growth in the second half of the year, driven by easier comps and a next-generation console footprint that he believes is over 60M units. Olson reiterates an Overweight rating and $41 price target on GameStop's shares.

Ambarella Q2 revenue guidance could beat expectations, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Kevin Cassidy says he is "cautiously optimistic" that Ambarella's (AMBA) Q2 revenue guidance will come in above expectations. The company was worried about whether Sony (SNE) would be able to meet demand for its sensors used in high end surveillance cameras, but recent checks show that it was able to do so, the analyst stated. Additionally, Ambarella's Q3 guidance should project year-over-year growth, given GoPro's (GPRO) initial Hero 5 builds, according to Cassidy. He keeps an $86 price target and Buy rating on Ambarella.

August NPD video game software sales rose 1%, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says August NPD video game software sales were up 1% year-over-year, driven by Sony (SNE) publishing No Man's Sky and Electronic Arts' (EA) Madden NFL 17. The data are most positive for Activision Blizzard (ATVI), which continued to benefit from sell-through of incremental title Overwatch, Olson tells investors in a research note. He believes the monthly numbers are largely irrelevant for Take-Two (TTWO), since NBA 2K17 is due out in September, and GameStop (GME), since the company announced October quarter guidance at the end of August.

Piper sees Trump-related Internet selloff as 'rare opportunity'
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says he would be "buying the fear" priced into Internet mega-caps. Concerns of President-Elect Trump's impact on tech companies are being largely extrapolated from sound bites that are unlikely to manifest during Trump's presidency, Munster tells investors in a research note. The selloff in "best-in-class" large cap internet stocks Apple (AAPL), Amazon.com (AMZN), Alphabet (GOOG), Facebook (FB) and Netflix (NFLX) presents a "rare opportunity," Munster writes. He believes Trump's threats towards Amazon are without merit and that net neutrality is unlikely to be reversed. He finds the valuations for each of the mega-caps "very attractive."

Internet stock weakness creates buying opportunity, says RBC Capital
EBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney says that the 5%-10% decline in Internet stocks since the election has created more attractive long-term opportunities. The analyst does not expect the Trump Administration's policies to have a major impact on the fundamentals of the Internet sector. His favorite large-cap names in the sector are, in order, Netflix (NFLX), Facebook (FB), and Priceline (PCLN). His favorite small-cap names are, in order, Yelp (YELP), Criteo (CRTO), and GoDaddy (GDDY).

Deutsche says buy Facebook following recent weakness
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley views Facebook's $6B share repurchase beginning in 2017 as a "welcome launch" of a capital return program. The stock represents an "outstanding value" following the recent selloff, Walmsley tells investors in a research note. He recommends that investors add to positions at current levels and keeps a Buy rating on Facebook with a $150 price target.

Facebook, Amazon.com most attractive on post-election pullback, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein notes that there has been a rotation into industrial and financial stocks post-election, at the expense of multinational technology stocks. However, he sees some potential positive catalysts for "FANG" names, namely Facebook (FB), Amazon.com (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOG; GOOGL), with the first two looking the most attractive at current levels. The analyst points out that Facebook's potential positive catalysts include faster than expected ad monetization driven by "Video First" strategy, Instagram engagement and Dynamic Product Ads. As for Amazon, he expects stable consumer spending to support a strong holiday shopping season.
