On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Pfizer (PFE) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Alex Arfaei saying he expects "positive updates" on the company's pipeline that could improve investors' view on the company. 2. Royal Caribbean (RCL) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Stephen Grambling citing "strong" leisure trends following the company's better than expected second quarter results. 3. Illumina (ILMN) upgraded to Equal-Weight from Underweight at First Analysis with analyst Joseph Munda saying concerns regarding sequencing overcapacity in the marketplace and the potential rate of adoption for NovaSeq are diminishing based on performance in the quarter. 4. Agios Pharmaceuticals (AGIO) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Leerink with analyst Michael Schmidt citing his higher-level conviction regarding the commercial opportunity for its IDH inhibitors Idhifa and ivosidenib in acute myeloid leukemia following Idhifa FDA-approval and his recent checks indicating a high degree of enthusiasm for these agents in the physician community pointing to potential good initial uptake. 5. Sonoco Products (SON) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Vertical Research with analyst Chip Dillion citing valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Sonoco Products has to find acquisitions to meet targets, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Mark Wilde kept his $54 price target and Market Perform rating on Sonoco Products after its investor day last week. Wilde says the company's 2020 targets would allow it to earn some $300M in incremental EBITDA, modeling a 40% stock price upside based on current multiple. However, the analyst also contends that the company "needs to find suitable acquisitions at reasonable valuations" to meet its goals, which is not easy in the current environment.
