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 Loop Capital with analyst Blake Harper saying downside is limited, even if the Q3 results disappoint, as there is "essentially a floor on the value of shares given the M&A speculation." 2. Costco (COST) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Northcoast with analyst Chuck Cerankosky saying he expects a stronger earnings improvement in 2018 and believes the performance will reflect a $5 membership increase in the US and Canada. 3. Yum! Brands (YUM) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Jason West citing a bullish outlook for the "New Yum" non-China, which will begin to trade on a standalone basis on November 1. 4. America's Car-Mart (CRMT) upgraded to Buy from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Elizabeth Suzuki saying she believes competition in the subprime auto market is beginning to ease and said she is seeing signs of credit tightening at other subprime lenders which should benefit Car-Mart. 5. Alon USA Partners (ALDW) and Western Refining (WNR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

MasterCard price target raised to $112 from $104 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Glenn Greene raised his price target for MasterCard (MA) to $112 from $104 ahead of results, saying he is encouraged by "solid" intra-quarter volume growth, improving FX trends, steady retail sales growth, and broadly positive card issuer trends. However, he prefers Visa (V) relative to MasterCard at present given the expected U.S. volume boost from the Costco (COST)/USAA wins and accretion benefits from the Visa Europe acquisition. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on MasterCard and Visa shares.

Lockheed Martin (LMT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Myles Walton saying 2016 should be the first year of positive defense spending outlays since 2010 after the Republicans retained control of Congress and added the White House. 5. McKesson (MCK) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Mizuho with analyst Ann Hynes saying she believes rhetoric on drug pricing will now "diminish significantly" following Donald Trump's presidential victory.
