On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Fortinet (FTNT) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Melissa Gorham saying she is more constructive on Fortinet heading into fiscal 2017 given the stable demand environment, free cash flow generation, easier comps, and more durable renewals. 2. Advance Auto Parts (AAP) upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James and to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna following the company's quarterly report. 3. Chevron (CVX) upgraded to Buy from Outperform at CLSA while the firm also upgraded EOG Resources (EOG) to Outperform from Underperform. 4. Harley-Davidson (HOG) upgraded to Sector Perform from Underperform at RBC Capital with analyst Joseph Spak saying that risks to the company's growth have dissipated, partly due to the potential of President-elect Trump's policies to spark increased consumer spending. 5. Cheesecake Factory (CAKE) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying investors should be attracted to Cheesecake by its dividend hikes, share repurchases, and ability to open new stores while generating consistent comparable sales growth.

Fortinet shares still attractive despite guidance miss, says JMP Securities
After Fortinet provided lower than expected Q4 revenue and EPS guidance, JMP Securities analyst Erik Suppiger says checks indicate that the company's longer term opportunity is "still attractive." The analyst says that the company's guidance for 23% quarter-over-quarter billings growth indicates that its subscription pipeline is still healthy, while it has room to increase its sales force productivity. Additionally, Suppiger believes that the company is "a prime candidate for activist investors," given its "lagging growth "and "low operating margins." He keeps a $34 price target and Outperform rating on the shares.
