On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. U.S. Steel (X) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Axiom with analyst Gordon Johnson saying he believes protectionism from the Trump administration and positive seasonality could create a "more optimistic tone" in the near-term. 2. Waste Management (WM) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Michael Hoffman saying he believes the company can embrace technology to improve customer experience, lower turnover, support better pricing, and improve productivity. 3. Air Products (APD) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Laurence Alexander saying he believes the industrial gases are positioned for a "classic late-cycle trade" amid improving industrial demand and a turn in the capex cycle. 4. DaVita (DVA) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Patrick Wood saying the sale of the company's DMG unit has resulted in an "unusual situation" where almost 40% of DaVita's current market capitalization is cash. 5. First Solar (FSLR) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst Ben Kallo citing its strong pipeline and balance sheet and continued cost and efficiency improvements. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
