Williams Partners upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Faisel Khan upgraded Williams Partners (WPZ) to Buy saying investors should own the stock ahead of the expected sale of its Geismar ethane cracker. The sale, along with the January restructuring, places Williams on a path toward investment grade metrics before year-end 2017, Khan tells investors in a research note. He raised his price target for the shares to $46 from $41. Khan this morning also upgraded Williams (WMB) to Buy.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wal-Mart (WMT) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Telsey Advisory with analyst Joseph Feldman saying that it is regaining its "dominance" in brick-and-mortar retail while showing "new prowess" in digital commerce. Walmart's near-term results have been impacted by tax refund delays and it is lapping difficult comparisons, acknowledged Feldman, who said his upgrade is more about its long-term strategy and expected market shares gains from its increased focus on food and e-commerce, price investments, and the customer experience. He increased his price target on Wal-Mart shares to $82 from $73. 2. Williams (WMB) and Williams Partners (WPZ) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi. 3. O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) upgraded to Overweight on valuation at Atlantic Equities with analyst Sam Hudson saying valuation is compelling given consistent execution. 4. LogMeln (LOGM) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with with analyst Gregg Moskowitz saying shares are poised to exceed expectations. 5. Sunoco (SUN) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Richard Gross saying the company has "clear visibility" to achieve its leverage goals with the convenience stores divestiture. The analyst believes the stock has further room to run and upped his price target to $35 from $26. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Varian Medical (VAR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral by Citi analyst Amit Hazan, who said the company is entering its strongest new product cycle period in at least seven years with Halcyon and HyperArc. BTIG analyst Sean Lavin also upgraded Varian Medical to Buy with a $106 price target following the "surprising" launch of its new Halcyon System. 2. Wells Fargo analyst Sharon Lui upgraded Williams Companies (WMB) to Outperform with an increased price target target range of $34-$36, telling investors that its strengthened financial profile and "attractive" long-term dividend growth profile should drive multiple expansion. 3. Goldman Sachs analyst James Schneider upgraded TSYS (TSS) to Buy, saying he sees "several" catalysts for the shares, including the May 24 analyst day and a return to earnings beats. 4. Buckingham analyst Kelly Halsor upgraded Restoration Hardware (RH) to Neutral from Underperform after the company completed its $300M stock buyback program and authorized an additional $700M of share buybacks. The analyst thinks that the fact that the company completed its $300M of buybacks without drawing on its revolver indicates that its inventory has been significantly lowered. 5. Evercore ISI analyst David Raso upgraded United Rentals (URI) to Outperform from In Line, citing valuation, and maintained his $134 price target on shares. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
