On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Verizon (VZ) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Jennifer Fritzsche saying after dropping 16% since mid-January, "much of the bad news is behind the stock" in terms of wireless service revenue declines. 2. 3D Systems (DDD) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Troy Jensen saying he sees limited downside from current share levels. 3. Viacom (VIAB, VIA) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Deutsche Bank with analyst Bryan Kraft saying he sees limited room for further multiple compression. 4. Maxwell (MXWL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Roth Capital with analyst Craig Irwin saying he sees consensus estimates as achievable for 2018, and merger synergies with NessCap should start making a more material contribution over the next few quarters. 5. National Beverage (FIZZ) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst Pablo Zuanic citing his increased conviction on the sales and bottom-line upside of 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.

Neutral
Ciena downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen downgraded Ciena (CIEN) to Neutral and cut his price target for the shares to $22 from $29. The shares closed yesterday down 41c to $20.76. Weaker than expected margins resulted in an October quarter earnings miss, Jensen tells investors in a research note. He sees 2018 being a more challenging year for the company. Verizon (VZ) spending on optical transmission equipment peaked in 2017 and will likely be down in 2018, the analyst contends. As such, Jensen believes Ciena's 5%-7% revenue growth targets could be challenging to achieve.

Buy
Verizon upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Jeffrey Kvaal upgraded Verizon Communications to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $61 from $47. The stock closed yesterday up 75c to $51.84. Better visibility into subscriber growth, rising average revenue per user and cost control will drive earnings growth in 2018, Kvaal tells investors in a research note. Further, he believes tax reform should also boost the company's earnings. The analyst thinks signs of easing competition may also spur multiple expansion.

Verizon (VZ) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet by analyst Jeffrey Kvaal, who said that better visibility into subscriber growth, rising average revenue per user and cost control will drive earnings growth in 2018. Further, he believes tax reform should also boost the company's earnings. The analyst thinks signs of easing competition may also spur multiple expansion. 2. Northrop Grumman (NOC) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst Seth Seifman, who said that more profitable F-35 growth will accelerate in 2018 while management's initial take on the Orbital ATK (OA) deal, including synergies, will prove conservative. He called Northrop his top defense prime pick. 3. Activision Blizzard (ATVI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs by analyst Christopher Merwin, who recommends owning this discounted "high-quality" asset ahead of accelerating earnings growth over the next 2-3 years. Merwin raised Activision's 2019 and 2020 estimates to reflect a robust pipeline of games including Diablo, Overwatch 2, and a Blizzard mobile title, which he does not believe Street estimates fully reflect. 4. Abbott (ABT) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital by analyst Joanne Wuensch, who said she is placing the stock on her "Top Picks" list, noting that 2018 will be the "year of execution" with several product launches ahead and acquisitions of Alere and St. June in the past. 5. HCA Healthcare (HCA), Tenet (THC) and Universal Health (UHS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi by analyst Ralph Giacobbe, who cited a more constructive view on the hospital space. The analyst sees a better volume backdrop in 2018 and low expectations for the sector. He believes hospital stocks offer an attractive upside scenario.
