On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Qualcomm (QCOM) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Rod Hall saying while more negative news from the Apple (AAPL) royalty suit is likely, "material fundamental upside" exists from the closure of the NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) by the end of this year. The analyst views the deal as highly accretive. Hall also believes Apple ultimately will want to preserve its commercial relationship with Qualcomm. 2. Motorola Solutions (MSI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Tavis McCourt saying shares look increasingly attractive based on improved demand visibility that is less economically sensitive than many of its peers, and demand catalysts from FirstNet buildouts that are expected to start in 2018. 3. Entegris (ENTG) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Toshiya Hari citing the recent pullback in shares and maintained a $29 price target. 4. Blackstone (BX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst William Katz saying the company's intentions to raise a $40B infrastructure fund should be a "valuation catalyst." 5. Cree (CREE) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at JMP Securities with analyst Joseph Osha saying he thinks that the company's new CEO could make positive changes at the company.

Consolidation wave approaching Asset Management industry, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys sees multiple headwinds - including distribution challenges, intensifying fee pressure, new regulation, and a weak organic growth outlook for active management - facing Asset Managers and believes that while M&A may not solve the challenges it can help firms adapt to better navigate the shifting landscape. The analyst, who believes "this time is different," thinks scale can help and predicts a wave of large-scale consolidation is approaching for the industry. Brokers and Asset Managers covered by Morgan Stanley include WisdomTree (WETF), Waddell & Reed (WDR), T. Rowe Price (TROW), Franklin Resources (BEN), Janus Capital (JNS), BlackRock (BLK) and Invesco (IVZ).

3D Systems reported disappointing results, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen says 3D Systems (DDD) last night reported disappointing results with weak printer sales being the primary factor in the revenue miss. The weak printer sales are directly correlated with increased competition from HP Inc. (HPQ), General Electric (GE) and others attacking 3D Systems' key product lines, Jensen tells investors in a post-earnings research note. He sees the company's second half of 2017 as "incrementally more challenging" and believes the stock's a "significant premium" to 3D printing peers is unwarranted. The analyst reiterates an Underweight rating on 3D Systems with a $14 price target.

The analyst believes the merger with Dow Chemical (DOW) is likely to close in the near future and that only "cautious enthusiasm" is being priced into the shares. Capitalizing on the targeted cost synergies implies 11%-17% potential upside in the stocks, Alexander tells investors in a research note. The analyst this morning also upgraded Dow Chemical to Buy.

EU approvals of other ag deals may narrow Monsanto deal spread, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas said commentary from the CEOs of DuPont (DD) and Syngenta (SYT) and press reports from Europe suggest that their deals with Dow Chemical (DOW) and ChemChina, respectively, are likely to be approved. Approvals from Europe for those deals may "trigger a meaningful closing of the arbitrage spread" in Monsanto (MON) shares versus Bayer's (BAYRY) offer price, Zekauskas tells investors. He recommends buying Monsanto shares at current levels for this reason, adding that he believes the shares would only fall about 2.5%, or down to $112, in the event of the Bayer deal falling through. Zekauskas keeps an Overweight rating and $128 price target on Monsanto shares, which closed yesterday at just below $115 per share.

Dow Chemical price target raised to $66 from $61 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Christopher Parkinson raised his price target for Dow Chemical to $66 from $61 as "strong" fundamentals and cost-cutting execution drove a Q4 beat. Heading into 2017, the analyst is encouraged by the company's ability to drive profit growth through ongoing cost-cutting initiatives, streamlined execution of Dow Corning cost synergies and a timely ramp of the project backlog, which should more than offset some risk regarding a volatile macro and FX. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.
