Overweight
Southwest upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Jamie Baker upgraded Southwest Airlines (LUV) to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $66 from $60. The analyst this morning also downgraded American Airlines (AAL), United Continental (UAL) and Spirit Airlines (SAVE) to Neutral. The recent correction in Southwest shares makes for a "compelling" risk-to-reward profile, Baker tells investors in a sector research note. An environment in which investors gravitate towards "relative safety and best in class" may benefit Southwest shares, the analyst contends.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Equifax (EFX) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst Jasper Hellweg citing news of a major hack on the company's data that could have lasting effects. 2. FedEx (FDX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Thomas Wadewitz citing TNT issues following the cyber-attack in June that knocked out multiple systems. 3. Carnival (CCL) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Tim Ramskil saying he is worried that his estimate of absolute industry capacity growth in 2018-2021 is double that of the last five years. 4. American Airlines (AAL), United Continental (UAL), and Spirit Airlines (SAVE) were downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan. 5. Acuity Brands (AYI) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Richard Kwas saying his firm's electrical channel checks indicate the 8% consensus organic revenue growth estimate for FY18 does not have upside. The analyst thinks shares are likely range-bound in the $160-$200 range "for the time being." He believes a "material step up" in tiered solutions growth is needed for gross margin to outperform expectations. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Neutral
United Continental downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham
Buckingham downgraded United Continental to Neutral and slashed its price target to $65 from $96 to reflect incremental weakness in Pacific bookings, concerns on its ability to successfully execute on domestic revenue, and concerns regarding the reacceleration of 50-seat RJ flying. The firm's analyst cut his 2018 pre-tax earnings forecast by 20% and expects the multiple to contract further as consensus estimates are reset lower.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Finish Line (FINL) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Erinn Murphy saying she sees further downside risk to estimates. 2. United Continental (UAL) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham with the firm's analyst cutting his 2018 pre-tax earnings forecast by 20% and expects the multiple to contract further as consensus estimates are reset lower. 3. Brooks Automation (BRKS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Needham with analyst Y. Edwin Mok citing valuation. 4. Wipro (WIT) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with the firm saying earnings growth stays anemic while valuation is rich. 5. Taubman Centers (TCO) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Richard Hill stating that while Taubman owns the highest quality portfolio of malls, its second quarter results showed its smaller portfolio may give it less negotiating leverage with retailers than peers.
