Wells Fargo valuation can increase over time, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst John McDonald says that Wells Fargo's "underlying business remains attractive," citing its "industry leading deposit base,diverse portfolio of fee businesses, large branch network" that could be optimized, and its $300B at the Fed that could be deployed as interest rates increase. The analyst says that the company is looking to cut $4B in costs and should benefit from higher rates. He thinks that its valuation can "rise over time."

Outperform
Wells Fargo slowly turning the corner, says Baird
Baird analyst David George noted Wells Fargo updated its 2017 guidance at its analyst day and reset expectations. He believes the estimates are conservative and continues to like the longer-term risk/reward for Wells Fargo shares. Coupled with its discounted valuation, the downside should be limited, added George, who reiterated his Outperform rating and $58 price target on Wells Fargo.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Best Buy (BBY) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Denise Chai citing stronger than expected product cycles in TVs, phones, and time smart home technology, strong online growth, increased focus on high margin services like subscription warranties and in-home services, and new cost savings opportunities. 2. JPMorgan (JPM) and American Express (AXP) were upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Guggenheim while Wells Fargo (WFC) was upgraded to Neutral from Sell. 3. Crane (CR) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at William Blair with analyst Nicholas Heymann citing the company's first quarter results. 4. NCI Building (NCS) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Robert Wetenhall saying he is more confident in the outlook of the company's end markets and the growth potential of its insulated metal panels business. The analyst believes that worries about the impact of steel price fluctuations on the company's margins are overdone, as he says that hedging can reduce the impact of such fluctuations. 5. Terex (TEX) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Ann Duignan saying the stock looks undervalued based on the company's 2020 targets. Following Terex's Q1 upside and raised 2017 outlook, the analyst upped her price target for the shares to $47 from $30. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Eli Lilly (LLY) was downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley and to Underperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital. 2. Incyte (INCY) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Joshua Schimmer citing the complete response letter from the FDA for baricitinib, indicating a need to determine appropriate doses. This setback could take years and lead to approval of only the lower dose, leaving potentially little differentiation from Pfizer's (PFE) rheumatoid arthritis treatment Xeljanz," Schimmer tells investors in a research note. The analyst prefers to wait for a "cleaner entry point" into the shares. 3. KKR (KKR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst William Katz saying he views the stock's valuation relative to peers as less attractive at current levels. 4. Monster Beverage (MNST) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Judy Hong saying she expects shares to be range-bound near-term due to soft core Monster sales trends in the US. 5. PNC Financial (PNC) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Rafferty Capital with analyst Richard Bove saying bank stock valuations are too high and growth is lacking.

Big bank set-up not great, would sell into extended rally, says Baird
Baird analyst David George does not see a great set-up for money-center banks heading into Q2 earnings. He said the trade looks crowded and he would be a seller into an extended rally. George said the risk/reward is less attractive following the sector's most recent rally as economic growth remains muted and the pace of NIM expansion may slow. George believes the biggest potential catalyst would be a gradual steepening of the yield curve and pick-up on loan growth.

S&P Global price target raised to $154 from $140 at UBS
UBS analyst Alex Kramm raised his price target on S&P Global to $154 from $140 following Q1 results. The analyst believes the company's raised guidance is its first after a Q1 release, noting that it cited solid organic growth and margin expansion across all segments. Kramm believes investors are not fully appreciating the value of the company's non-rating segments, which he believes should continue to deliver this year. Kramm reiterated his Outperform rating on S&P Global shares.

S&P Global price target raised to $155 from $131 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Anjaneya Singh raised his price target for S&P Global to $155 from $131 after the company exceeded expectations for the quarter, driven by strength across its Ratings business segment and by strong contributions from other segments. While there may be questions on the momentum of issuance for the remainder of 2017, the analyst believes the potential risks are offset by opportunities for S&P Global PGI in its other businesses, on both top line and margins. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Barclays analyst Manav Patnaik upgraded TransUnion (TRU) to Overweight saying credit bureaus will continue to outperform and that the market will benefit from a "scarcity value" in Industrials. The analyst keeps a $37 price target for the shares. Patnaik calls S&P Global (SPGI) his top pick in Information Services and raised his price target for the shares to $145 from $140. The analyst also views Moody's (MCO) as a "name to own" and upped his price target for the shares to $125 from $120. Patnaik this morning also downgraded Fair Isaac (FICO) to Equal Weight.
