UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Chevron (CVX) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Evan Calio saying he believes Chevron is differentiated and has the largest free cash flow inflection in 2017-2019 from project start-ups, primarily Wheatstone and Gorgon, driving production growth to 16%, has the best short-cycle opportunity globally, particularly in the Permian,and has higher oil leverage into a cyclical price recovery. 2. Baker Hughes (BHI) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Atlantic Equities. 3. Johnson Controls (JCI) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman with analyst Joe Ritchie saying he believes Johnson's fundamentals are improving, cost savings should support EBIT growth, and valuation is inexpensive. 4. Brocade upgraded to Outperform on potential takeover at RBC Capital with analyst Mitch Steves saying he believes Brocade makes sense as a strategic asset to the right operator and would be mid-single-digit accretive to the acquirer. 5.
