On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Pandora (P) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at FBR Capital with analyst Barton Crockett saying he believes the setup for Pandora "looks enticing" given low investor expectations and the presence of John Malone following the investment by SiriusXM (SIRI). 2. Swift Transportation (SWFT) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens. 3. Vodafone (VOD) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Eade saying he expects it profits to rise over the longer term. 4. Ultra Petroleum (UPL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Michael Scialla saying the company's reorganization has improved its balance sheet and margins, while leaving it "ready to compete." 5. CACI (CACI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Cai von Rumohr citing its 2018 acceleration with strong bookings, the sector upturn, and a favorable risk/reward with support from its near peer-high cash flow yield. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Deal/news has mixed implications for Pandora, says SunTrust
After Pandora (P) announced a $480M investment by Sirius (SIRI), SunTrust analyst Matthew Thornton says that Sirius' presence on Pandora's board will have a positive impact on the latter company. He adds that the new capital should enable Pandora to increase its investments in key areas, However, on the negative side, he notes that Pandora wasn;t sold, while the reported $8 per share offer for Pandora by Sirius, if true, is "unsettling." Additionally, the analyst thinks that a number of Pandora's top shareholders could exit the stock in the wake of the news. However, he keeps a $10.50 per share price target and a Buy rating on Pandora.

Terms of Pandora deal look attractive for SiriusXM, says Evercore ISI
After Sirius XM (SIRI) announced an agreement to take the equivalent of a 16% stake in Pandora (P) via the purchase of $480M in Pandora preferred stock, Evercore ISI analyst Vijay Jayant said the terms are attractive to Sirius and he believes the investment makes financial and strategic sense. He does not see this deal limiting Sirius' ability to return capital to shareholders, adding that he continues to view Liberty SiriusXM (LSXMA) as "the best vehicle to get exposure" to Sirius shares. Jayant has an In Line rating on Sirius XM and an Outperform rating on Liberty SiriusXM.

Pandora downgraded to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein downgraded Pandora Media (P) to Perform citing a "failure" of his takeout thesis. The capital investment from SiriusXM (SIRI) and Ticketfly will allow Pandora to refocus on its core advertising business, which is the correct strategy, Helfstein tells investors in a research note. He sees share upside to "only" $9.50-$11.00 and removed his $14 price target on the stock. The analyst sees the fundamental turnaround taking time.

Buy
Swift Transportation initiated with a Buy at Vertical Research
Vertical Research analyst Brian Konigsberg initiated Swift Transportation with a Buy and a $34 price target. The analyst said his work indicates we are at or near a truckload utilization trough, which history suggests should favor positioning in asset-light companies. However, valuation upside since year-end, a pick up in deal activity and a transitioning competitive landscape in the asset-light arena, leads him to reshuffle a bit. Konigsberg recommends companies with special situations and unrealized earnings power that is set to be "unleashed."

Peering out into 2018 and beyond, CACI seems to have both limited exposure to the areas most likely to see budget cuts and greater exposure to areas that would benefit from the administration's stated priorities, he notes. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.
