Altria Group still likely to be acquired after FDA news,says Wells Fargo
After the FDA announced a new approach towards nicotine Friday, Wells Fargo expects Altria (MO) to be "a big beneficiary" of the approach, since it will spur much higher purchases of reduced-risk products and smokeless cigarettes, leading to share gains for Altria, according to the firm. Wells believes that the FDA's announcement may increase the value of Altria to "close to $90 per share" from $80 per share previously, and it continues to expect the company to be acquired by Philip Morris (PM). Wells thinks that tobacco stocks could experience an "overhang in the near-term," but it says the news "could be positive" for the sector over the longer term, as it thinks the large tobacco companies will ultimately benefit from the change in consumption trends. British American Tobacco (BTI) is another publicly traded company in the sector.

Altria Group upgraded to Sector Perform at RBC Capital
As previously reported, RBC Capital analyst Nik Modi upgraded Altria Group to Sector Perform from Underperform, as he believes the FDA's tobacco announcement on Friday was "very much in line" with industry expectations despite the surprise to investors. Modi, who still thinks tobacco stocks can perform despite major overhangs, keeps a $62 price target on Altria.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Altria Group (MO) upgraded to Sector Perform from Underperform at RBC Capital with analyst Nik Modi saying he believes the FDA's tobacco announcement on Friday was "very much in line" with industry expectations despite the surprise to investors. 2. American Airlines (AAL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen. 3. Baidu (BIDU) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet with analyst Jialong Shi-NIHK citing accelerating revenue momentum driven by news feed ads and an undervalued video business. 4. Wells Fargo (WFC) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at BMO Capital with analyst James Fotheringham citing valuation. The firm also ended its pair trade call of going long Citi (C) and short Wells Fargo. 5. GoPro (GPRO) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Yuuji Anderson saying valuation better reflects efforts to driver better product cycles through software improvements.

Overweight
British American Tobacco recent weakness appears overdone, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Matthew Grainger said he views some degree of weakness in U.S. and European tobacco stocks since "FDA Friday" - when the agency announced plan to pursue reduced nicotine content in cigarettes - as warranted, but he views the impact on British American Tobacco (BTI) as being overstated by the stock's 11% pullback. For Altria Group (MO), which is down 14% since that day, he sees the move as having returned the stock to appropriate valuation levels, he added. Grainger lowered his price target for Altria to $65 from $68, kept his Philip Morris (PM) price target of $120 unchanged and maintains his British American target at GBP60.
