Centene weakness creates buying opportunity, says Wells Fargo
After attending Centene's Investor Day, Wells Fargo notes that the company's guidance was lower than expected but incorporated a conservative view of its public exchange business. However, Wells continues to believe that the company is well-positioned due to "the continued shift towards managed care in the high acuity Medicaid population, (its) track record in winning new government businesses, and a new growth platform in Medicare following its Health Net acquisition." The firm keeps an Outperform rating on Centene.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. CRH (CRH) upgraded to Overweight at JPMorgan by analyst Elodie Rall, who views the valuation as attractive and sees limited risk to estimates. 2. Ironwood (IRWD) upgraded to Outperform at Cowen citing the company's pipeline and ex-U.S. royalties as well as U.S. co-marketing agreements leaving room for growth. 3. Owens-Illinois (OI) upgraded to Buy at Citi with analyst Anthony Pettinari citing valuation and a low bar set by management for 2016. 4. Pennsylvania REIT (PEI) upgraded to Outperform at Boenning & Scattergood by analyst Floris van Dijkum, who believes Pennsylvania REIT's discounted valuation is unwarranted given significant acceleration in 2018 NOI growth. van Dijkum expects the company to continue to reduce leverage by selling other non-core assets and make development progress on the Fashion Outlets of Philadelphia. 5. Cisco (CSCO) upgraded to Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Rod Hall saying the company's 3.8% dividend yield is "compelling in the midst of current market volatility."

The analyst trimmed his price target on the name to $178 from $185 and keeps a Buy rating.
