Neutral
Valero downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Neil Mehta downgraded Valero (VLO) to Neutral citing a more balanced risk/reward following the stock's outperformance. Further, the analyst thinks the upcoming OPEC meeting could drive further compression of the light-heavy differential. He lowered his 6-month target for the shares to $73 from $74. Mehta this morning also upgraded Delek US (DK) to Buy, kept a Buy rating on Marathon Petroleum (MRC) and a Sell rating on HollyFrontier (HFC).

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Chipotle (CMG) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying he expects Chipotle to post above-peer-average growth over the next several quarters due to its new marketing initiatives, differentiated menu and unit expansion plans. Further, Staszak sees fast-casual restaurants like Chipotle growing faster than the overall restaurant industry. He points out that Chipotle posted a strong recovery in both comp sales and earnings in the first quarter. 2. Alliance Data (ADS) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Compass Point. 3. PVH Corp. (PVH) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Matthew Boss citing the company's first quarter results. The beat and raise story in retail is a rarity, Boss tells investors in a research note. He sees increased visibility to a "sustainable double-digit bottom-line profile" over the longer term. 4. Marathon Petroleum (MPC) and Phillips 66 (PSX) were assumed with an Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray. 5. Alexion (ALXN) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Matthew Harrison saying he believes investors are overlooking ALXN1210 upside potential, are too negative on Solris and believes new Chief Executive Officer Ludwig Hantson is making progress on refocusing efforts and right sizing 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.

Marathon Petroleum removed as Franchise Pick at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Corey Goldman removed Marathon Petroleum from his firm's Franchise Pick list saying he sees "only modest upside" if a Speedway separation were to occur. As such, he does not expect Marathon to execute a tax-free separation of Speedway. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $65 price target.
