Michaels risk/reward positive, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman was positively surprised by the yesterday's investor meeting saying he did not fully appreciate the amount of innovation across the enterprise, merchandising, shopping experience, omni channel, and business opportunities. The analyst expects Q3 comps of +2%, which will enhance management credibility, demonstrate the stability of the business, and boost confidence. Gutman views Michaels' risk/reward as positive and reiterates his Overweight rating and $29 price target ahead of a same-store-sales rebound in the second half.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Michaels (MIK) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Peter Keith citing his firm's Spring women's survey which showed 30%-40% of arts and crafts purchases are completed online. Further, the analyst's pricing analysis versus Amazon (AMZN) suggests Michaels is at a "notable premium" on 50 like-for-like items. Keith sees potential for price investment by Michaels over the coming years to make itself more competitive with Amazon. 2. Intuit (INTU) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman with analyst Jesse Hulsing citing the more challenging Consumer Tax environment. Software/do-it-yourself share gains versus assisted are down versus prior years, including Intuit's, the analyst wrote. As a result, Hulsing lowered Inuit estimates and trimmed its price target to $134 from $135. 3. GameStop (GME) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Hilliard Lyons with analyst Jeffrey Thomison saying 2017 guidance was "underwhelming" and he has increased concerns regarding the core video game retailing business. 4. Morgan Stanley (MS) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Compass Point with analyst Charles Peabody saying he views shares as overvalued based on the elongated trajectory towards earning a competitive ROE and most of the benefits of Project Streamline have been priced in or realized. 5. KB Home (KBH) downgraded on valuation at JMP Securities with analyst Peter Martin downgraded the stock based on valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Michaels (MIK) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Denise Chai saying fundamentals have hit an inflection point. The analyst expects comps to improve in the second half as it is up against easy compares due to the disruption from adding flexible merchandise space to stores and the election. 2. AvalonBay (AVB) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Juan Sanabria saying its diversified portfolio is well positioned relative to peers with its concentrated Class A, and urban core supply. 3. Weatherford (WFT) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Clarksons Platou. 4. Bellatrix Exploration (BXE) upgraded to Speculative Buy from Hold at Canaccord with analyst Anthony Petrucci citing improved risk/reward profile. The analyst cited improved overall reserve levels and better than expected reserve value. Petrucci lowered his price target to C$1.50 from C$1.60 on Bellatrix Exploration shares. 5. ManTech (MANT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Maxim with analyst Brian Kinstlinger saying he views the company's contract awards over the last two years as a sign that demand is strengthening and believes ManTech will gain market share. Trump administration policies will likely lead to strong market growth in 2018 and 2019, added Kinstlinger, who keeps a $44 price target on ManTech shares.
