Illinois Tool Works (ITW) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Ann Duignan saying organic growth is likely to be better than forecast in the third quarter. 5. McKesson (MCK) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Charles Rhyee saying the transition towards differential specialty pricing will drive both earnings growth and multiple expansion.

McKesson upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen
Cowen analyst Charles Rhyee upgraded McKesson (MCK) to Outperform saying the transition towards differential specialty pricing will drive both earnings growth and multiple expansion. Distributor stocks, historically, fare very well coming out of a business model transition, Rhyee tells investors in a research note. He raised his price target for the shares to $189 from $176. The analyst this morning also upgraded AmerisourceBergen (ABC) to Outperform. Rhyee prefers both McKesson and AmerisourceBergen over Market Perform-rated Cardinal Health (CAH). He lowered his price target for the latter to $74 from $77.

McKesson upgraded to Outperform on 'trading call' at Baird
As previously reported, Baird analyst Eric Coldwell upgraded McKesson to Outperform from Neutral, calling his rating change a "tactical/trading call" following the shares' material underperformance, both year-to-date and over the last twelve months. Over 80% of analysts are neutral/negative and consensus estimates across distributors are starting to make sense, he tells investors, adding that McKesson is building a "much more balanced" model. Coldwell raised his price target on the stock to $178 from $175.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Gap (GPS) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Credit Suisse analyst Christian Buss saying his firm's brick-and-mortar real estate analysis indicates Gap is better positioned than he thought. 2. Michael Kors (KORS) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer with analyst Anna Andreeva saying the turnaround in retail is just starting, while sentiment on the shares is "extremely negative." 3. McKesson (MCK) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst Eric Coldwell calling his rating change a "tactical/trading call" following the shares' material underperformance, both year-to-date and over the last twelve months. 4. NetApp (NTAP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Steven Milunovich saying NetApp's product position is improved with a re-write of its storage software contributing to all-flash success. 5. Knight-Swift (KNX) resumed with a Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Christian Wetherbee saying the truck market recovery appears to be accelerating in the second half of 2017, and Knight-Swift is best levered to an improving truckload market.

Minimal hurricane exposure for pharma supply chain, says Leerink
Leerink analyst David Larsen sees less than 1% impact to revenues and earnings to companies in his coverage from Hurricane Harvey and Irma and believes any effects will be viewed as one-time in nature. The analyst notes that "the percentage of state impacted" and "days of impact" are particularly challenging variables in his model to estimate, but based on various assumptions he believes the hurricanes will prove to be a minor event for Express Scripts (ESRX), AmerisourceBergen (ABC), Cardinal Health (CAH), and McKesson (MCK). Nonetheless, Larsen says pharmacy retailers Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) and CVS Health (CVS) may face some store closures and possible damage costs.
