Schlumberger, Weatherford to benefit from deal, says SunTrust
After Weatherford (WFT) and Schlumberger (SLB) combined their North American completions assets into a joint venture, SunTrust analyst Ken Sill says the deal enables Schlumberger to enhance its underdeveloped U.S. pressure pumping operations, while providing Weatherford with $535M in cash that it can use to reduce its debt. The analyst expects the deal to be accretive for both companies. He keeps a Buy rating on Weatherford and a Hold rating on Schlumberger.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Adobe (ADBE) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG. 2. Best Buy (BBY) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Peter Keith saying store closures from hhgregg and potentially Sears (SHLD) could lift Best Buy's comp sales by 2%, Keith tells investors in a research note. Further, the upcoming iPhone and Samsung Galaxy Note launches should bring a "strong smartphone upgrade cycle," the analyst contends. 3. HCA Holdings (HCA) and Universal Health (UHS) were upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Mizuho. 4. Weatherford (WFT) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Judson Bailey citing greater confidence in improving operations with the hire of CEO Mark McCollum and the formation of the OneStim joint venture. 5. Brookdale Senior Living (BKD) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Brian Tanquilut citing an improved risk/reward following the recent pullback in the shares. The analyst sees a greater than 50% probability that Brookdale's ongoing sale process results in a deal, but thinks the stock can reach $14.50 even without a takeout. He upped his price target for the shares to $16.50 from $14. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Weatherford downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Waqar Syed downgraded Weatherford to Neutral from Buy and maintained his $7.25 price target. Syed told investors additional near-term catalysts are unlikely, Q1 consensus estimates are too high, cash flow remains weak and expects outflows in Q1, and does not expect any major strategy announcement on the Q1 call.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Weatherford (WFT) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Waqar Syed saying additional near-term catalysts are unlikely, first quarter consensus estimates are too high, cash flow remains weak and expects outflows in Q1, and does not expect any major strategy announcement on the Q1 call. 2. TransMontaigne (TLP) downgraded to Hold on valuation at Stifel with analyst Selman Akyol saying valuation reflects near-term earnings potential. 3. Wix.com (WIX) downgraded to Market Perform on valuation at Raymond James with analyst Aaron Kessler citing valuation following the year-to-date 67% move and 250% gain in the last year. 4. DAVIDsTEA (DTEA) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Lake Street with Chris Krueger citing management's warning that Q1 trends have deteriorated and the company expects a loss for the quarter. With the company now calling fiscal 2018 a "reset year," Krueger lowered his price target on DAVIDsTEA shares to $8 from $14. 5. FirstService (FSV) downgraded to Market Perform on valuation at Raymond James with analyst Frederic Bastien citing the year-to-date 37% gain in shares and raised his price target to $61 from $60.
