On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Snap (SNAP) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Scott Devitt saying Snap shares offer a "compelling risk/reward opportunity." 2. Progressive (PGR) upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Gregory Peters saying he believes Progressive will continue to grow net premiums written at a double digit pace through 2017 and is well positioned to benefit from emerging smartphone technology to monitor and price for distracting driving over the next 24 months. 3. Agilent (A) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo. 4. Hain Celestial (HAIN) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Maxim with analyst Anthony Vendetti saying that its fiscal 2018 guidance implies a turnaround in its business while the company's reporting of its prior financials without any major restatements has removed an accounting overhang. 5. Fastenal (FAST) upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James analyst Sam Darkatsh saying he thinks yesterday's selloff in Fastenal shares is entirely related to MSC Industrial's (MSM) gross margin commentary and is unwarranted. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Strong Buy
Progressive upgraded on improving auto cycle profits at Raymond James
As previously reported, Raymond James upgraded Progressive to Strong Buy from Outperform and increased its price target to $52 from $45. Analyst Gregory Peters believes Progressive will continue to grow net premiums written at a double digit pace through 2017 and is well positioned to benefit from emerging smartphone technology to monitor and price for distracting driving over the next 24 months. He expects up to 15% of the personal auto business could begin to report up to 20% decline in risky driving habits over the next 18 months, resulting in improving underwriting margins.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Progressive (PGR) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Deutsche Bank with analyst Joshua Shanker saying his concerns over the company's margins "are not longer apt" and that sees no catalyst to the downside. 2. Shake Shack (SHAK) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Nick Setyan saying the valuation at current share levels is attractive given Shake Shack's "industry-leading growth trajectory. 3. CarMax (KMX) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Seth Basham saying the company's CAF credit losses will probably rise less in 2017 than in 2016, reducing "the risk of a credit-driven blowout." 4. Bank of Montreal (BMO) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Ian Sealey citing the recent pullback in the shares of Canadian banks as he sees "strong" book value and dividend growth over the longer term. 5. BioLineRx (BLRX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Maxim with analyst Jason Kolbert saying the company is now closer to being a pivotal company after announcing it will initiate a Phase 3 program for BL-8040 in stem cell mobilization later this year.
