Former SeaWorld Orlando president helping with 'Blackfish' probe, NY Post says

Terry Prather, the former president of SeaWorld Orlando, is providing evidence to officials in their investigation into the company related to CNN's "Blackfish" film, The New York Post reports. Investigations are looking into "disclosures and public statements" made by company execs in 2014 or earlier "regarding the impact of the 'Blackfish' documentary" on SeaWorld's (SEAS) stock, a regulatory filing has said. According to a source, officials are looking into whether there was a "coverup" at SeaWorld "about the negative effect of the documentary as Blackstone (BX) took the company public in April 2013."

Citi now sees Busch Gardens sale as more likely for SeaWorld
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet raised his probability of a Busch Gardens asset sale for SeaWorld Entertainment to 65% from 30%. He sees $2 of upside for the shares in the event of a sale. The company's lower EBITDA forecast suggests debt covenants may move to the forefront, Bazinet tells investors in a research note. He adds that press reports suggest Merlin Entertainment is interested in the parks. The analyst, however, reduced his price target for SeaWorld shares to $14 from $15. This reflects his new $12 per share standalone valuation for the company as well as $2 for a potential Busch Gardens sale. Bazinet keeps a Neutral rating on SeaWorld.

'Many' SeaWorld initiatives seem to be ' working,' says Stifel
Stifel analyst Steven Wieczynski says that calling SeaWorld's Q2 results disappointing "would be an understatement." However, the analyst says that "many of the company's "strategic initiatives" appear to be "working," and he says the stock remains attractive at current levels. The analyst cut his price target to $16 from $23 but keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Swartz says that the company's "turnaround will take more time than expected," and he cut his price target on the shares to $16 from $22.

He keeps a Buy rating on the stock.

Blackstone Vivint IPO/sale potential positive for Alarm.com, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Michael Nemeroff notes that several news outlets disclosed that Blackstone (BX) is running a process that could lead to an IPO or sale of Vivint, a smart-home technology company. The analyst believes that the IPO or sale of Vivint could have positive implications for Alarm.com (ALRM). An IPO could validate the market for connected home security products and promote awareness in a market where Alarm.com holds the dominant leadership position, while a sale could result in business disruptions at Vivint, which could allow Alarm.com to further extend its lead in the market, Nemeroff contends.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Qualcomm (QCOM) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Rod Hall saying while more negative news from the Apple (AAPL) royalty suit is likely, "material fundamental upside" exists from the closure of the NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) by the end of this year. The analyst views the deal as highly accretive. Hall also believes Apple ultimately will want to preserve its commercial relationship with Qualcomm. 2. Motorola Solutions (MSI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Tavis McCourt saying shares look increasingly attractive based on improved demand visibility that is less economically sensitive than many of its peers, and demand catalysts from FirstNet buildouts that are expected to start in 2018. 3. Entegris (ENTG) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Toshiya Hari citing the recent pullback in shares and maintained a $29 price target. 4. Blackstone (BX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst William Katz saying the company's intentions to raise a $40B infrastructure fund should be a "valuation catalyst." 5. Cree (CREE) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at JMP Securities with analyst Joseph Osha saying he thinks that the company's new CEO could make positive changes at 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.
