Blackstone seeks $10B for infrastructure fund, Bloomberg reports

Blackstone is looking for as much as $10B to supllement a $20B anchor commitment for the pool for the largest-ever infrastructure fund before it begins investing, Bloomberg reports, citing people with knowledge of the plans. The firm intends to start with $5B of outside capital and as much as $5B from clients with separately managed accounts, the reprot says. That $10B would supplement the $20B that Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund committed in May, the report says. The firm's own commitment is 2.5% of the fund up to $500M, the report notes. No less than 70% of the new fund will be invested in North America, the report says.

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.
