On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ford (F) was upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays, while Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) was upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight. 2. Alcoa (AA) upgraded to Buy from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Timna Tanners upgrading Alcoa two notches to Buy from Underperform and saying she is more positive on structural demand for the global aluminum market as China seems more inclined to contain capacity and the WTO complaint filed by the US has helped send the Midwest premium up in recent weeks. The analyst raised its price target to $45 from $35. 3. Chipotle (CMG) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Maxim with analyst Stephen Anderson saying that even though its fourth quarter results were only in-line with downward revised expectations its two-year comps "improved considerably" in January, leading him to believe that the "worst may be over" for the troubled restaurant operator. The analyst, who believes "Chipotle 2.0" represents an opportunity for sales upside, raised his price target on the stock to $390 from $280. 4. Ball Corp (BLL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Vertical Research with analyst Chip Dillon citing valuation. 5. Deckers Brands (DECK) upgraded to Neutral from Negative at Susquehanna with analyst Sam Poser saying the negative thesis is "played out" following last night's big miss. Poser is encouraged by Deckers' cost savings initiatives but said the real question is whether the company will take control of UGG distribution, inventory levels, and overall UGG brand.

Ford upgraded to Hold from Underperform at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Philippe Houchois upgraded Ford Motor to Hold saying the company's "bad news" in the last six months has been sufficiently priced into the shares. While cyclical risks remain, Ford should benefit the most of the big three from infrastructure spending, border adjusted tax reform and exposure to a Russian auto recovery, Houchois tells investors in a research note. He raised his price target for the shares to $12 from $10.

Jefferies switches preference to Ford from General Motors
Jefferies analyst Philippe Houchois switched his preference to Ford Motor (F) shares from General Motors (GM) after upgrading the former to Hold. The analyst keeps a Hold rating on GM with a $36 price target. Matching last years' $6B-plus adjusted free cash "is looking challenging," Houchois tells investors in a research note.

Jack in the Box (JACK) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Jake Bartlett saying he expects the company to benefit from fewer discounts in the sector and market share gains going forward. 4. Cigna (CI) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Frank Morgan saying the company is well positioned as a standalone entity. The analyst believes Cigna has "multiple positive levers" to drive earnings higher and sees a likelihood for "significant" capital deployment. Morgan raised his price target for the shares to $172 from $151. 5. Enerplus (ERF) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Ray Kwan citing valuation.
