On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Time Warner (TWX) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Omar Sheikh citing attractive valuation. 2. Waste Management (WM) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Jon Windham saying the recent pullback in shares provides a buying opportunity given the company's "strong" underlying fundamentals. 3.

Biogen (BIIB) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Joshua Schimmer saying the company still has time to "get its act together to maximize the value of its SMA franchise, and stop being M&A disciplined/pipeline-undisciplined." 5.

AT&T downgraded to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan downgraded AT&T (T) to Perform saying CenturyLink's (CTL) dividend is "relatively more attractive." The analyst this morning upgraded CenturyLink to Outperform. Horan also believes AT&T's acquisition of Time Warner (TWX) will face higher regulatory hurtles than CenturyLink's deal for Level 3 (LVLT).

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1.

KBR (KBR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA Merrill Lynch with analyst Anna Kaminskaya saying she expects structurally higher defense spending to drive a re-rating in KBR and sees less risk of cost overruns in the E&C business given lower reliance on fixed priced contracts and diversification into smaller sized service projects. 5. Liberty Interactive (QVCA) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA Merrill Lynch with analyst Heather Balsky saying she has increased confidence in a return to positive US sales growth and expects multiple expansion as sales improve.

Roth Capital likes IMAX partnership with Disney-ABC, Marvel Television
Following IMAX's (IMAX) announcement of its partnership with Disney's (DIS) ABC and Marvel Television to have the new TV series "The InHumans" first two episodes debut exclusively on the company's network, Roth Capital analyst Darren Aftahi says he likes this transaction. The analyst believes it diversifies IMAX away from its reliance on tent pole content, raises brand awareness, and gives it a financial participation in the ongoing success of TV series. He reiterates a Buy rating and $38 price target on IMAX's shares.

Disney upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Bryan Kraft upgraded The Walt Disney Company to Buy citing increased confidence in the company's outlook for 2017. ESPN subscriber declines have improved and should improve further with the proliferation of streaming pay TV bundles in 2017, Kraft tells investors in a research note. He believes declines in the Consumer Products business will trough in the December quarter and feels the tough film comps for 2017 are well understood. Kraft has a $112 price target for Disney shares. The stock closed yesterday down 24c to $97.70.

Citi views Disney's moves as blunting the bear thesis
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet believes Disney in 2016 made three "bold' announcements that are yet to be fully developed by the Street. First, the company in Q2 acquired a 33% stake in BAMTech. Second, it suggested it would use Hulu to launch a sports-centric linear TV service in early 2017. And third, management suggested they would launch a niche sports service for out-of-market games. These strategic pivots blunt the bear case which is centered on cord cutters, Bazinet tells investors in a research note. Disney bears are focused on the 2% of U.S. households that terminate their pay TV subscription each year, the analyst writes. He estimates that absent steps by Disney, cord cutting creates a financial headwind of about $300M a year. With Disney's three announcements, however, the $300M headwind could shrink each year and actually turn into a $100M EBIT tailwind by 2020, the analyst contends. Bazinet keeps a Buy rating on Disney with a $117 price target.
