On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Caterpillar (CAT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ross Gilardi saying monthly retail sales continue to accelerate and views valuation as much more reasonable. Gilardi believes the company could have another big beat and raise in July and could raise the dividend over the summer. 2. Yum! Brands (YUM) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Karen Holthouse saying her primary bear thesis, or continued weakness in China comps, has largely played out. She's increasingly positive on Taco Bell and sees limited near-term negative catalysts. 3. Symantec (SYMC) upgraded to Overweight from Equal-Weight at First Analysis with analyst Howard Smith saying he views the recent selloff as a buying opportunity and has increased confidence in the company's long-term growth following its fourth quarter results. 4. Snap (SNAP) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer and to Neutral from Underweight at Cantor. 5. Electronic Arts (EA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Ascendiant with analyst Edward Woo noting that the company's fourth quarter results beat expectations and he calls its guidance "strong." According to the analyst ,the company is benefiting from "strength in digital, growth in next gen consoles, and cost management." He calls its upcoming games "solid." This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Caterpillar upgraded to Buy on sales momentum, dividend raise at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded Caterpillar to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target to $120 from $105. Analyst Ross Gilardi raised estimates saying monthly retail sales continue to accelerate and views valuation as much more reasonable. Gilardi believes the company could have another big beat and raise in July and could raise the dividend over the summer. He also said the September Investor Day, the first in four years, will likely focus on disciplined spending, returns, reduced cyclicality from aftermarket, digital opportunity, and sustainable dividend increases, among other strategies.
