BB&T upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Terry McEvoy upgraded BB&T to Overweight from Equal Weight, noting that it has been the worst performing Super Regional bank in 2017 and he recommends taking advantage of that underperformance as he expects it to produce among the highest returns in the group going forward. The analyst, who has confidence on BB&T's Q3 trends following the bank's update at a conference last month, set a $53 price target on the shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Microsoft (MSFT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord with analyst Richard Davis saying investors are underestimating the "virtuous cycles" of Microsoft's four "compelling" growth drivers, namely Office Productivity, Gaming, Marketing, and Azure's Platform as a Service. 2. Biogen (BIIB) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Matthew Harrison saying the base business is underappreciated and Ocrevus share loss is slower than expected. 3. Sherwin-Williams (SHW) upgraded to Buy from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Steve Byrne saying the company announced a 3%-5% price increase on Tuesday and detailed plans to expand PF EBITDA margin to 19%-21% in 2020 from 17% in 2016. 4. BB&T (BBT) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens with analyst Terry McEvoy noting that it has been the worst performing Super Regional bank in 2017 and he recommends taking advantage of that underperformance as he expects it to produce among the highest returns in the group going forward. 5. Celsion (CLSN) upgraded on improved financial outlook at Maxim with analyst Jason McCarthy saying the changes to the company's agreement with warrant holders, enabling the warrants to be exercised immediately following a rally in the stock, have removed the financial overhang on 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.

Morgan Stanley says higher SIFI threshold could benefit Comerica, CIT, Zions
After Senate Banking Committee Chairman Mike Crapo proposed a bill in the Senate that would effectively remove the SIFI threshold for banks under $250B, Morgan Stanley analyst Ken Zerbe estimated that banks with $50B-$100B in assets could see a 12% increase in 2020 EPS and a 15% bump in 2021. He sees the largest potential increase at Comerica (CMA), followed by CIT Group (CIT) and Zions Bancorp (ZION). Zerbe projects the least EPS benefit for SunTrust (STI), Regions Financial (RF), Ally Financial (ALLY) and Discover (DFS), he tells investors. Other banks he lists in his note as potentially impacted by SIFI and CCAR changes include Synchrony (SYF), M&T Bank (MTB), KeyCorp (KEY), Fifth Third (FITB), BB&T (BBT), Citizens Financial (CFG) and Huntington Bancshares (HBAN).

BB&T price target raised to $51 from $44 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Mike Mayo raised his price target for BB&T to $51 from $44 to reflect more potential upside from a portion of higher interest rates, lower taxes, and lower cost of capital due to greater resiliency. The analyst reiterates a Market Perform rating on the shares.
