Nomura to add bankers for U.S. investment banking business, Reuters reports

Nomura (NMR) is expecting to add a dozen senior- and mid-level bankers to its U.S. investment banking business over the next 12 to 18 months to cover mergers and acquisitions, equity capital markets and leveraged financing, Reuters reports, citing two people familiar with the matter. The bank, which hired Jim Voorheis from UBS (UBS) as managing director for its financial institutions group and Thomas Chung from Credit Suisse (CS) as managing director for U.S. equity capital markets, may increase the number of additional hires depending on deal momentum and profitability of international operations.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Boston Scientific (BSX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus by analyst David Toung, who believes that the company reported "strong" Q2 sales and is gaining share. 2. WEX Inc. (WEX) upgraded to Outperform from Underperform at CLSA by analyst Tom McCrohan who increased his average fuel price outlook, which resulted in an increase in earnings contribution of approximately 30c per share for both 2017 and 2018. Additionally, the analyst said management is beginning to implement higher late fees on its small business clients, which can unlock 90c per share of additional earnings power as small fleet customers incur higher late fees on overdue balances. 3. Nomura (NMR) upgraded to Hold from Underperform at Jefferies by analyst Makarim Salman, who still cautions investors not to "chase the momentum" following the company's positive Q1 earnings. 4. Seacoast Banking (SBCF) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette by analyst Jefferson Harralson, who thinks the company is about to "ramp to a meaningfully higher profitability" following its efficiency improvements. 5. Randgold (GOLD) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord, citing valuation following its Q2 results. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Biogen (BIIB) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Robyn Karnauskas saying the Alzheimer's Phase 2 data already reported and no Phase 3 results until 2019/20, upside in the stock rests on the stability of Biogen's multiple sclerosis business and success of the Spinraza launch in spinal muscular atrophy. 2. Caterpillar (CAT) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Robert Wertheimer saying investors likely will never get a chance to buy the company's revenue with as much upside as in 2017. 3. Sysco (SYY) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst John Ivankoe saying the shares should be bought in the low $50s. He raised his price target for the shares to $57 from $55. 4. Nokia (NOK) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley. 5. UBS (UBS) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Andrew Stimpson saying negative catalysts have played out. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
