On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Sunoco (SUN) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst John Edwards saying valuation is "underappreciated" and said a dividend cut is unlikely given options available for Sunoco and Energy Transfer Equity (ETE) to execute before reducing payouts. 2. BP (BP) and Statoil (STO) were upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS. 3. Citi (C) and Bank of America (BAC) were upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities while Morgan Stanley (MS) was upgraded to Neutral from Underweight. 4. Air Products (APD) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Monness Crespi with the firm saying it thinks that Air Products will benefit from consolidation in the industry. It says that Air Products' balance sheet will enable it to "easily bid on and win new projects" and exploit divestitures in the sector. 5. Monster Beverage (MNST) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Kevin Grundy calling the stock his top large cap growth pick in Consumer Products. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Opco says 'let the bet ride' on bank stocks, ups price targets
Oppenheimer analyst Chris Kotowski says that while "one cannot remain as bullish on the group as when the stocks were cheap," investors should "let the bet ride" on bank stocks. The analyst maintains a "somewhat overweight stance" on the space, but points out the shares are getting more fully valued. Kotowski's favorite names remain Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), CIT Group (CIT) and Goldman Sachs (GS). He raised his price target for Bank of America to $25 from $19, for Citi to $72 from $65 and for Goldman to $252 from $228.

UnitedHealth initiated with an Overweight at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James commenced co-coverage on UnitedHealth with an Overweight and a $188 price target, up from $155. Piper Jaffray's Healthcare IT Sr. Analyst, Sean Wieland, will continue to focus on Optum while James will provide a refreshed look at the managed care portion. James believes UnitedHealth will grow earnings above peers driven by capital deployment, best in class cost control, which drives market share gains, international expansion, and above consensus growth in Optum as it builds out relationships with existing customers and increasingly beats large peers on new contract wins.

The other six winners include Aetna (AET), Anthem (ANTM), Humana (HUM), UnitedHealth (UNH), Optima Health and Virginia Premier, the analyst notes.
