On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. McDonald's (MCD) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Andrew Charles saying value and digital are multi-year growth drivers. The firm's proprietary survey data indicates McDonald's value perceptions versus quick service peers has improved since last September when it began to market both the McPick 2 for $5 value platform and discounts only available through the app. 2. Costco (COST) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Northcoast with analyst Chuck Cerankosky saying Costco is able to combine value merchandising with an upscale product selection in a destination shopping format, is taking market share in fresh food categories, and is shown to be relatively immune to food deflation over the past several quarters. 3. Fossil (FOSL) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Buckingham with the firm's analyst saying shares have pulled back below its $10 price target reaching levels not seen since the fiscal 2009 recession. 4. Goodyear Tire (GT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Ashik Kurian citing "improving volume momentum and strong cash returns." 5. Clovis (CLVS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Janney Capital with analyst Debjit Chattopadhyay citing the ARIEL3 data, which he said addressed the PARP differentiation question.
