Stifel Financial upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo analyst Christopher Harris upgraded Stifel Financial to Outperform and raised his price target for the shares to $64 from $56. The analyst sees opportunity for multiple expansion from the company's business model shift toward fee versus commission as well as fading of regulatory concerns. Harris adds that Stifel would be a significant beneficiary of tax reform.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser downgraded Alphabet (GOOGL) to Hold from Buy citing brand safety concerns and valuation following the recent rally in the shares. News last week that Havas, the sixth largest global media network, is pulling its spending from Google's YouTube and Google Display Network in the U.K. because Google was "unable to provide specific reassurances, policy and guarantees that their video or display content is classified either quickly enough or with the correct filters" is a big deal, Wieser tells investors. 2. Canaccord analyst Lynne Collier downgraded Sonic (SONC) to Hold from Buy, citing challenging industry sales, the potential for Street estimates to be too high in the midst of soft sales, a lack of upcoming catalysts, and increasing competition from non-traditional venues such as convenience stores. 3. Piper Jaffray analyst Alexander Potter downgraded Mobileye (MBLY) to Neutral saying that while demanding a higher buyout price may be justified, he "begrudgingly" concluded that the price Intel (INTC) is paying for the company is fair. The analyst raised his price target for Mobileye shares to $63.54 from $60 to reflect Intel's offer. 4. Susquehanna analyst Sam Poser downgraded Caleres (CAL) citing the company's "disappointing" results and his belief that the company will not be able to overcome industry headwinds. 5. Goldman Sachs analyst Conor Fitzgerald downgraded Stifel Financial (SF) to Neutral from Buy while raising his price target for the shares to $59 from $58. The analyst believes LPL Financial (LPLA), a stock he upgraded this morning to Conviction Buy, offers more upside at current valuations.

Stifel Financial downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Steven Chubak downgraded Stifel to Neutral saying the decision by the Department of Labor not to pursue the Administrative Procedure Act in an effort to delay certain provisions of the Fiduciary rule slated to go in effect June 9 could way on broker multiples. Further, the analyst has concerns of a slowdown in trading, underwriting, and MiFID II headwinds that could further pressure revenues. Chubak cut Stifel's price target to $51 from $60.
