Michaels reinstated with a Buy at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Elizabeth Suzuki reinstated Michaels with a Buy and a $29 price target saying she expects growth to be driven by store optimization and transformation, improved leverage of lower-cost product sourcing and exclusive brands. The analyst only expects "modest" online disruptions for the arts and crafts industry due to the "important" in-store experience.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Huntsman (HUN) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc with analyst Michael Sison saying he believes HuntsmanClariant will generate "attractive earnings growth" through the end of the decade. He also sees the IPO of Venator (VNTR) as a potential catalyst. 2. Caterpillar (CAT) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Joel Tiss saying he expects the company to provide five year Earnings Per Share guidance at its September investor event "that could approach" his $16 outlook. 3. Michaels (MIK) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Christopher Horvers saying the risk/reward at current share levels is attractive. 4. Xerox (XRX) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays with analyst Mark Moskowitz saying better market conditions and cost take-outs could help the company improve revenue and margins. 5. Leggett & Platt (LEG) upgraded to Long-Term Buy from Neutral at Hilliard Lyons with analyst Spencer Joyce saying the upgrade is not a call on Q2 results, but does expect positive commentary toward second half 2017 and believes valuation provides a compelling long-term entry point. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Michaels risk/reward positive, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman was positively surprised by the yesterday's investor meeting saying he did not fully appreciate the amount of innovation across the enterprise, merchandising, shopping experience, omni channel, and business opportunities. The analyst expects Q3 comps of +2%, which will enhance management credibility, demonstrate the stability of the business, and boost confidence. Gutman views Michaels' risk/reward as positive and reiterates his Overweight rating and $29 price target ahead of a same-store-sales rebound in the second half.
