Fossil upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Buckingham

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.

Fossil price target cut to $7 from $10 at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Heather Blasky lowered Fossil's price target to $7 from $10 saying weak traditional watch sales continued to offset wearables growth as Q2 revenues missed across all regions. The analyst said gross margin erosion moderated but promotional activity remains elevated and he is concerned about deflationary pressures. Blasky reiterated his Underperform rating and the company is not immune to the "waning" watch cycle.

Pier 1 Imports 'disappointing' report mainly due to furniture, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba said he is "comforted" by the fact that Pier 1 Imports' disappointing Q1 results and Q2 guidance were largely driven by underperformance in one product category, outdoor furniture. Chukumba, who notes Pier 1 is much less dependent on furniture sales in the second half of the year than in the first, also said he was encouraged by the newly appointed CEO's strategic plan. He lowered his price target on Pier 1 to $10 from $12, but keeps a Buy rating on the shares, which are down 10% to $4.84 in pre-market trading.

INC Research (INCR) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst David Windley saying near term integration risk from the inVentiv merger is not fully incorporated into the shares. 5.

Pier 1 Imports price target lowered to $8 on CFO uncertainty at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba said he is "rarely happy to see a CFO depart," but he also noted that Pier 1 Imports has continued to "stumble" under outgoing CFO Jeff Boyer, while his departure allows new CEO Alasdair James to bring in his own person to take the post. Noting the increased uncertainty that the CFO departure brings, Chukumba lowered his price target to $8 from $10 on Pier 1 shares, but keeps a Buy rating on the stock, citing the stock's "significant discount" to the average valuation of peer home furnishings and home goods retailers.
