On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Mondelez (MDLZ) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Michael Lavery saying favorable sugar and cocoa costs provide a boost to margins. 2. Big Lots (BIG) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Trussell saying the current valuation is "compelling" given the disconnect between the company's "impressive" operating profit growth and multiple. 3. Werner (WERN) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ken Hoexter saying truckload utilization and rates are turning positive. 4. Atlassian (TEAM) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Sanjit Singh saying has increased confidence in expansion trends of the user base and said there are clear signs of pricing power, supporting 30% topline growth and 40% free cash flow CAGR over the next 3 years. 5. DSW (DSW) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Paul Trussell saying the shares offer an "intriguing non-apparel value play."

Buy
Big Lots should consider going private, says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba said he believes Big Lots would be attractive to private equity sponsors, that current leveraged finance market conditions would support such a transaction, and that the company should consider going private given the "lack of respect" that its sizeable discount to its peers indicates. A leveraged buyout at $60 per share could be financed and would generate returns "comfortably above" those that private equity firms typically target, he tells investors, adding that he has "no reason to believe a deal is imminent." Chukumba keeps a Buy rating and $64 price target on Big Lots shares.
