Frontier Communications downgraded to Market Perform at Cowen
As reported previously, Cowen analyst Gregory Williams downgraded Frontier Communications to Market Perform from Outperform as he believes the dividend cut solves little of the fundamental issues facing the company. Although the cut will provide financial flexibility he finds it difficult to recommend a stock that is set up for what may be downward revisions in free cash flow guidance. Williams lowered his price target to $2 from $4 on Frontier Communications shares.

Piper Jaffray analyst Andrew Nowinski believe the bear thesis on NetApp is falling apart after the company's "strong" Q4 results. Management continues to execute on their plan to deliver low double-digit earnings growth, Nowinski tells investors in a post-earnings research note. He attributes the after-hours selloff to the lower than expected Q1 earnings outlook and recommends adding to positions at these levels. Nowinski has an Overweight rating on the stock with a $50 price target.

Piper views Best Buy as 'compelling investment' despite Amazon
Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Keith believes Best Buy (BBY) may be the only company to successfully become an omni-channel retailer and "move from an inferior to superior value proposition to Amazon (AMZN)." Comp drivers this year like the Nintendo Switch have the potential to drive upside to estimates, Keith tells investors in a research note. Further, he believes Best Buy can buy back 16% of its market cap over the next 1.75 years. The analyst views the shares as a "compelling investment" and keeps an Overweight rating on the name with a $70 price target.

Best Buy selloff on Amazon news overdone, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba views today's selloff in shares of Best Buy (BBY) on Recode's report of a "Geek-squad" like service coming from Amazon.com (AMZN) as overdone. Amazon should never be taken lightly, but today's 7% pullback is overdone, Chukumba tells investors in an intraday research note. He believes Best Buy's Geek Squad offers a much more comprehensive set of services than Amazon does and that Amazon seems more interested in educating consumers on how to use Alexa to purchase more items from its website than anything else. The analyst estimates Geek Squad services account for 3% of Best Buy's total sales. Chukumba recommends buying shares of Best Buy on today's weakness. He has a Buy rating on the name with a $72 price target.

Best Buy has limited impact from Amazon rollout of smart home a at BofA/Merril
BofA/Merrill analyst Curits Nagle said the rollout of Amazon's (AMZN) smart home advisor service will have a limited impact on Best Buy (BBY). Nagle said Best Buy has competitive advantages,, a strong head start in services, and sees plenty of room for growth for both Best Buy and Amazon in smart home devices. The analyst said Best Buy remains well positioned for a new multiyear smart home product cycle and believes growing voice-command device adoption should ultimately drive further demand for products and services. Nagle rates Best Buy a Buy with a $68 price target.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. First Solar (FSLR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Krish Sankar saying First Solar's execution has improved and said the low cost Series 6 product could lead to better margins starting in the second quarter of 2018. Sankar also told investors First Solar's valuation is attractive and the balance sheet has strengthened. 2. Fogo De Chao (FOGO) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord with analyst Lynne Collier saying she sees an improved outlook for the overall industry in the next 12-24 months and she has increased confidence in the company's ability to drive market share gains. Collier raised her price target to $20 from $16 on Fogo de Chao shares. 3. Carlyle Group (CG) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette with analyst Robert Lee citing the "strong" first quarter results and accrued carry. 4. Regions Financial (RF) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Erika Najarian saying the market is undervaluing a "significant capital return story" following the year-to-date underperformance relative to peers. The analyst sees upside to the dividend and thinks Regions can return 20% of its market capitalization over the next two years. Her price target of $17 implies 20% upside from current levels. 5. Bunge (BG) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Ann Duignan citing a balanced risk/reward following the 11% post-earnings selloff. The analyst keeps a $70 price target for the 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.

FirstEnergy nuclear liability risk overblown, says Morgan Stanley
After holding a call with the company's Chief Nuclear Officer, Morgan Stanley analyst Stephen Byrd says the probability that shareholders would be liable for spent nuclear fuel storage, if FirstEnergy's nuclear plants were to shut down, is remote. The analyst believes risk of nuclear liability is overblown and that FirstEnergy's 27% valuation discount relative to peers is unwarranted. Byrd keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $38 price target.

Exelon a net winner despite 'disappointing' 2020/21 auction, says Credit Suisse
Following PJM Interconnection's annual capacity auction, Credit Suisse analyst Michael Weinstein called Exelon a net winner despite "disappointing" RPM results for the 2020/21 capacity auction. The results for the EMAAC area should help drive a net positive result for Exelon assuming the same amount of capacity cleared year-over-year, he indicated. PSEG (PEG) and Calpine (CPN)are also "net beneficiaries," while Dynegy (DYN), NRG Energy (NRG) and FirstEnergy (FE) will "bear the brunt of a poor RTO showing," Weinstein tells investors.
