SoftBank upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Jun Tanabe upgraded SoftBank (SFTBF) to Overweight from Neutral and raised his price target on the stock to Y9,930 from Y6,500, citing improved earnings at Sprint (S), the growth in value of its stake in Alibaba (BABA), and the stability of cash flow in its domestic mobile business.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Square (SQ) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Scott Devitt saying he now feels more confident in the company's growth and profitability outlook and its competitive position following three quarters of consistent execution. 2. BHP Billiton (BHP) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Christopher LaFemina saying he believes fundamentals have "clearly improved," citing supply that has declined in most cases and demand that has stabilized. 3. SoftBank (SFTBF) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jun Tanabe citing improved earnings at Sprint (S), the growth in value of its stake in Alibaba (BABA), and the stability of cash flow in its domestic mobile business. 4. Allscripts (MDRX) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Leerink with analyst David Larsen saying he believes that the company's core fundamentals are improving "significantly." 5. Westlake Chemical (WLK) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Arun Viswanathan saying that the company's merger with Axiall (AXLL) "creates a new way to play chlor-alkali," as well as synergies.

T-Mobile price target raised to $70 from $55 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan raised his price target for T-Mobile (TMUS) to $70 from $55 as he views it as the best way to play the deregulatory/technology driven consolidation. The analyst notes that President-Elect Trump met with Masayoshi Son of SoftBank (SFTBF), who agreed to invest $50B in the U.S. Horan believes the meeting will likely be a precursor to a Sprint (S)/T-Mobile/Dish (DISH) merger to create a discounted quad-play service company. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on T-Mobile' shares, and points out that the company has improved its network and taken share from AT&T (T)/Verizon (VZ).

Alphabet's Waymo an emerging competitor to Tesla, says Morgan Stanley
After Morgan Stanley's Internet team, led by analyst Brian Nowak, said they view the partnership that Waymo, Alphabet's (GOOG) autonomous driving unit, has struck with Lyft as an important step in the "Other Bet" company's ability to help drive the autonomous transition, analyst Adam Jonas said the Waymo/Lyft partnership is an emerging competitor to Tesla (TSLA) in autonomous mobility. Jonas keeps an Equal Weight rating and $305 price target on Tesla shares.

Tesla seen more widely as 'more than a car company,' says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas said he believes the market is increasingly viewing Tesla (TSLA) as "more than a car company," giving it a low chance of success of disrupting a $10T global market for mobility rather than a high chance of success in the smaller traditional light vehicle market. There is "little doubt that Tesla has a seat at the table" for any conversation about machine learning and the multi-trillion-dollar transport market alongside Amazon (AMZN), Alphabet (GOOG), and Apple (AAPL), though its market cap is only a fraction of theirs, Jonas tells investors. The analyst, who added that the firm is getting a "surprisingly high level of pushback" on its prior work on Google's self-driving Waymo unit - with some saying they undervalued Waymo and others saying they undervalued Tesla's shared/autonomous mobility efforts - keeps an Equal Weight rating and $305 price target on Tesla shares.

Criteo selloff on Apple iOS update overdone, says JPMorgan
Criteo (CRTO) dropped 7% yesterday after Apple (AAPL) announced that it will limit ad tracking on desktop browsers with the iOS 11 update, JPMorgan Doug Anmuth tells investors in a research note. The news follows Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) recent announcement that Chrome will stop showing ads on sites that do not meet its ad criteria beginning in 2018, the analyst adds. Anmuth does not expect much financial impact to Criteo from either change in the near term. He believes both Apple and Google will ultimately leave ads up to the end user to manage. The analyst views yesterday's selloff in Criteo shares as overdone and keeps an Overweight rating on the name.
