United Continental upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James
As previously reported, Raymond James analyst Savanthi Syth upgraded United Continental to Outperform with a $65 price target following the announcement of Scott Kirby as President and Andrew Levy as CFO. Kirby joins United from American Airlines (AAL), as announced last night, and Levy joins from Allegiant Travel (ALGT), as announced earlier this month. The analyst said both executives have strong industry experience and Syth has increased conviction United will reduce it margin gap relative to its peers over the next 12-18 months. Further, competitive capacity pressures will likely improve and easing comps should benefit sequential revenue trends in 2017, the analyst tells investors.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. McDonald's (MCD) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird by analyst David Tarantino, who believes the stock's risk/reward has become more favorable following the year-to-date underperformance. The analyst admits that slower U.S. industry demand trends and challenging upcoming comparisons pose a "short-term headwind," but thinks the company's "attractive" dividend yield can help to limit further downside risk in the shares. 2. United Continental (UAL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James, with analyst Savanthi Syth applauding the selection of Scott Kirby as President and Andrew Levy as CFO. Syth said both have strong industry experience and has increased conviction United will reduce its margin gap relative to its peers over the next 12-18 months. 3. VMware (VMW) upgraded to Buy from Neutral by SunTrust analyst John Rizzuto, who says that the company has effectively diversified beyond its server virtualization roots. The analyst, who expects the company's revenue to bottom this year and accelerate through the end of the decade, raised his price target on the stock to $92 from $64. 4. Barracuda (CUDA) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at Pacific Crest, as analyst Rob Owens said he's seeing improved trends due to the company's renewed product alignment and cloud-centric channel marketing campaign. 5. Fortinet (FTNT) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at Pacific Crest by Rob Owens, who believes management's focus on enhanced profitability should drive share outperformance.

Airlines initiated at Bernstein
Bernstein analyst David Vernon initiated coverage of the U.S. airline sector, saying that he is "bullish on the sector" and asserting that it has "favorable..dynamics." He expects the sector's stocks to have "higher average highs and higher average lows over time," driven partly by its investments in return enhancing programs, revenue enhancing initiatives, and "a stronger outlook for longer term capital return" which isn't reflected in valuation, according to the analyst. Vernon recommends owning airlines that have "less financial and operating leverage." He says that he is "favorably disposed" to Southwest (LUV) and Delta Air Lines (DAL), which he says have high returns and low leverage, and is less upbeat on United Continental (UAL), which he says has higher operating leverage and execution risk. He is bearish on American Airlines (AAL), as he thinks that its capacity growth and financial leverage create significant risk. The analyst started coverage of Southwest with an Outperform rating and a $51 price target. He initiated coverage of Delta and United Continental with Market Perform ratings and $43 and $55 price targets, respectively. He launched American with a $31 price target and Underperform rating.
