Fossil's overall sales continue to struggle, says OTR Global
OTR Global's distributor checks indicate Fossil continues to struggle with overal sales during the quarter as slowing demand for smartwatches contributed to general weakness as traditional watch sale declined.

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.

Novavax (NVAX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Ladenburg with analyst Kevin Degeeter saying he believes the company's NanoFlu could become a "potent vaccine" for prevention of seasonal influenza. 5.

Home Depot selloff today overdone, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Christopher Horvers views the selloff today in Home Depot (HD) shares as overdone. Amazon.com's (AMZN) pact to sell Sears' (SHLD) Kenmore appliances and Sherwin-Williams' (SHW) "disappointing" paint performance is dragging the group down, Horvers tells investors in a research note. He points out that Sherwin-Williams and Valspar house paints sell through Lowe's (LOW), and not Home Depot. Further, Amazon doesn't have a white glove infrastructure for appliances, Horvers says. The analyst recommends buying Home Depot amid today's pullback.

Whirlpool pullback on Amazon-Sears team-up overdone, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Michael Rehaut said he believes the decline in Whirlpool (WHR) following news of Sears' (SHLD) deal to sell appliances via Amazon (AMZN) has been overdone. He notes Whirlpool has proven it can adapt to the changing retail environment and that if Amazon becomes a reasonably large distribution channel for appliances he'd expect the company to participate.

Home Depot, Lowe's, Best Buy selloff yesterday overdone, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Daniel Binder views the selloff yesterday in shares of Home Depot (HD), Lowe's (LOW) and Best Buy (BBY) on news that Sears (SLD) would sell Alexa-integrated Kenmore appliances through Amazon (AMZN) as overdone. While Amazon shouldn't be underestimated, appliance transactions are complex and Kenmore brand equity has declined, Binder tells investors in a research note. He does not believe the Sears deal is an indicator that more appliance manufacturers will sell direct via Amazon.

Amazon.com, Sears deal doesn't impact Best Buy thesis, says SunTrust
After Best Buy (BBY) dropped following the announcement of a deal between Amazon (AMZN) and Sears (SHLD) on appliances, SunTrust analyst David Magee says the 4% decline in Best Buy's stock is "understandable." However, he says the news doesn't alter his basic thesis on Best Buy. Magee says that Best Buy has shown that it can compete effectively against Amazon in other categories, while there are several other brands of appliances besides Sears' Kenmore that have good reputations and Best Buy will have better service than Sears and Amazon. He keeps a $70 price target and a Buy rating on Best Buy.

8point3 Energy downgraded on sponsor uncertainty at Janney Capital
As previously reported, Janney Capital analyst Michael Gaugler downgraded 8point3 Energy to Neutral from Buy, stating that the pipelines and financial strength of its sponsors First Solar (FSLR) and SunPower (SPWR) were a primary reason for his positive take on the stock. With First Solar planning to exit there is no clear plan in place and a strategic review could lead down any path, including both sponsors exiting, said Gaugler, who lowered his fair value estimate on 8point3 Energy to $13.50 from $20.

8point3 Energy price target lowered to $16 from $20 at Baird
Baird analyst Ben Kallo lowered his price target on 8point3 Energy (CAFD) to $16 from $20 following Q1 earnings. Despite beating earnings estimates the shares are likely to be under pressure following the decision by First Solar (FSLR) and SunPower (SPWR) to consider strategic alternatives for their respective interests in the company, said Kallo. Bears will believe the company will not be able to support growth without additional dropdowns, but he feels the current operating portfolio should support growth through 2018. Kallo maintained his Outperform rating on 8point3 Energy shares.

Canadian Solar rises after Axiom starts with a Buy
Shares of Canadian Solar (CSIQ) are higher in early trading after Axiom analyst Gordon Johnson initiated the stock with a Buy rating and an $18 price target, as previously reported by The Fly. Johnson sees Canadian Solar as having a unique level of "sellable, in-the-money," U.S., Chinese, and Japanese solar assets, leaving it positioned similarly to how First Solar (FSLR) and SunPower (SPWR) were in mid 2012 when those two had the same type of unique positioning relative to solar industry peers. From late June 2012 to the end of 2015, shares of First Solar and SunPower advanced 526% and 338%, respectively, far outpacing the gains of their industry peers, said Johnson, who now sees a similar set-up for Canadian Solar. In early trading, Canadian Solar shares have risen 63c, or about 5%, to $13.35.

Solar sector may be bottoming, First Solar best positioned, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Krish Sankar believes the Solar sector may have bottomed in Q2 2017 with installs falling about 23% compared to Q2 2016 as last year's rush was driven by fears of an ITC expiration. Sankar believes global demand is set to increase 2% in 2017, followed by mid-to-high single digit growth going forward. His top solar pick heading into earnings is First Solar (FSLR), followed by Buy rated Veeco (VECO) in the energy efficiency/LED space. The analyst remains sidelined, until there is clarity on future sponsors, in SunPower (SPWR) and 8Point3 (CAFD).
