Banco Popular in talks with Blackstone over portfolio stake, Reuters says

Blackstone (BX) is in exclusive talks to buy a majority stake in Banco Popular's (BPESY) property portfolio, Reuters reports. Vozpopuli, an online newspaper, citing unnamed financial sources, previously said competing bids from Lone Star and Apollo (APO) had failed. Separately, Spanish online newspaper El Confidencial reported on Monday that Blackstone agreed to buy 51% of Popular's portfolio, valued overall at around EUR30B. Reference Link

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Qualcomm (QCOM) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Rod Hall saying while more negative news from the Apple (AAPL) royalty suit is likely, "material fundamental upside" exists from the closure of the NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) by the end of this year. The analyst views the deal as highly accretive. Hall also believes Apple ultimately will want to preserve its commercial relationship with Qualcomm. 2. Motorola Solutions (MSI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Tavis McCourt saying shares look increasingly attractive based on improved demand visibility that is less economically sensitive than many of its peers, and demand catalysts from FirstNet buildouts that are expected to start in 2018. 3. Entegris (ENTG) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Toshiya Hari citing the recent pullback in shares and maintained a $29 price target. 4. Blackstone (BX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst William Katz saying the company's intentions to raise a $40B infrastructure fund should be a "valuation catalyst." 5. Cree (CREE) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at JMP Securities with analyst Joseph Osha saying he thinks that the company's new CEO could make positive changes at the company. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
