On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Delta Air Lines (DAL) upgraded to Outperform from In-Line at Imperial Capital with analyst Michael Derchin saying the company is likely to grow unit revenues in fiscal year 2018 due to pricing power in its key domestic hubs and improving international results. 2. Transocean (RIG) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Scott Gruber saying if an upturn is forthcoming, Transocean should outperform given a "diminution" of concern toward its balance sheet and more new contract catalysts. 3. Canadian Pacific (CP) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Brian Ossenbeck saying he sees a shift to stronger volume growth as the company laps contract losses and records some new contract wins. 4. Infinity upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Jim Birchenough saying the IPI-549 monotherapy data have a "reasonable likelihood" of proof-of-concept response rate, and with likely validation of tumor macrophage targeting in immunooncology and a unique mechanism of action, upside potential is not reflected in the current stock price. 5. Kroger (KR) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Stephens with analyst Ben Bienvenu saying he believes the pursuit of strategic alternatives for the convenience store business has potential to unlock value and that the risk/reward is more balanced following the stock's recent pullback.

Sell
Diamond Offshore downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Scott Gruber downgraded Diamond Offshore (DO) to Sell and keeps a $12 price target for the shares. The analyst initiated a pair trade by also upgrading Transocean (RIG) this morning to Buy. Gruber, while still finding it premature to be bullish on offshore driller fundamentals, says that if an upturn is forthcoming, Transocean should outperform given a "diminution" of concern toward its balance sheet and more new contract catalysts. If the downturn persists, then Diamond Offshore is likely to underperform as its backlog is consumed, Gruber tells investors in a research note previewing Q3 earnings for the sector. He believes Diamond Offshore is "simply overvalued" and that Transocean is the "industry leader who's ready to lead."
