On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Mondelez (MDLZ) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Michael Lavery saying favorable sugar and cocoa costs provide a boost to margins. 2. Big Lots (BIG) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell saying the current valuation is "compelling" given the disconnect between the company's "impressive" operating profit growth and multiple. 3. Werner (WERN) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ken Hoexter saying truckload utilization and rates are turning positive. 4. Atlassian (TEAM) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Sanjit Singh saying has increased confidence in expansion trends of the user base and said there are clear signs of pricing power, supporting 30% topline growth and 40% free cash flow CAGR over the next 3 years. 5. DSW (DSW) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Paul Trussell saying the shares offer an "intriguing non-apparel value play."

Sell
Under Armour downgraded to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell downgraded Under Armour (UAA) to Sell with an unchanged price target of $17. The performance apparel maker closed yesterday down 37c to $20.27. The analyst says a "difficult and promotional selling environment along with segmentation challenges" weaken his confidence in the company's near-term results. Even amid weak investor sentiment, Under Armour won't get a pass on potentially weak Q2 results, Trussell tells investors in a research note. He views the company's growth story as "challenged" and questions the "expensive" valuation. The analyst this morning also upgraded DSW (DSW) and Big Lots (BIG) to Buy.

Big Lots upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell upgraded Big Lots to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $56 from $55. The current valuation is "compelling" given the disconnect between the company's "impressive" operating profit growth and multiple, Trussell tells investors in a research note. He sees the company's analyst day in September as a potential catalyst.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Big Lots (BIG) upgraded to Strong Buy from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Dan Wewer saying all productivity metrics continue to improve as the company has pruned back underperforming stores and has focused on sales, productivity, EBIT%, ROIC, FCF, dividend growth, and buybacks. Wewer notes Big Lots' short interest has reached 33% and could be a benefit as the company delivers on on earnings and guidance. 2. Dynegy (DYN) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Deutsche Bank with analyst Abe Aza citing a balanced risk/reward with the stock down 30% since February's "disappointing" New England capacity auction results. The analyst raised his price target for the shares to $7 from $6. 3. L Brands (LB) upgraded to Buy on core comp, margin opportunity at Buckingham with the firm saying the worst of trends at Victoria's Secret are past and believes core comps and margin can improve going forward. 4. Wynn Resorts (WYNN) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Union Gaming. 5. BHP Billiton (BHP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
