United Rentals upgraded on positive catalysts at RBC Capital

As noted earlier RBC Capital upgraded Untied Rentals to Outperform from Sector Perform. Analyst Seth Weber cited consolidation within the rental space and positive comments by rental company Sunbelt as two reasons for the upgrade. Additionally, the analyst says that positive commentary from industrial distributors bodes well for United Rentals since its revenue growth has tracked closely with them since 2009. Target to $138 from $128.

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.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Western Digital (WDC) upgraded to Overweight on NAND strength at Morgan Stanley with analyst Wamsi Mohan citing better industry trends in both hard disk drives and memory. 2. Check Point (CHKP) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays with analyst Saket Kalia saying accelerating billings growth in the double digits suggests the company's market position is strengthening. 3. Align Technology (ALGN) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst Jeff Johnson citing its many growth levers and many data points suggesting a new level of acceptance for clear aligner therapy. Johnson said the company's revenue acceleration feels like it has staying power, suggesting the stock could trade in historical ranges reserved for preeminent medtech growers. Johnson raised his price target to $155 from $105 on Align Technology shares. 4. Trimble (TRMB) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Dougherty with analyst Jon Fisher citing the inflection in revenue, earnings beat, and second quarter outlook for growth. 5. United Rentals (URI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ross Gilardi saying pieces are in place for a seasonal rate improvement.
