Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Evercore ISI with analysts led by Doug Terreson saying the company publicly acknowledged corrective strategies which emphasize returns at the expense of growth. 2. AK Steel (AKS) upgraded to Outperform from Underperform at Credit Suisse with analysts led by Curt Woodworth saying they remain very "bullish" on the U.S. steel industry and said its new supply/demand model for the U.S. flat rolled market indicates supporting prices well above fair value levels. 3.

Dover (DOV) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with the firm citing emerging stabilization in the energy market and a valuation gap relative to peers. 5.

Morgan Stanley continues to see downside to Western Union and Paychex
Morgan Stanley analysts led by Danyal Hussain continues to see downside Western Union (WU) and Paychex (PAYX). The analyst expects revenue growth to be pressured by rising competition and said Western Union has the most risk given diminished network advantages in cash money transfer, an increasing transition to online transfers, and a rising tax rate in coming years. Hussain said Paychex is exposed to rising competition given its premium pricing and margin profile, and premium valuation. The analyst has an Underweight rating on both stocks.
