United Technologies upgraded to Buy at Goldman Sachs

As previously reported, Goldman upgraded United Technologies to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target to $173 from $124. Analyst Noah Poponak believes United Technologies is within the year of maximum new engine loss on Geared Turbofan engines, or GTFs, and thinks the market will begin to look beyond that peak loss and give increased consideration to substantial longer-term cash flows. Poponak said shares trade near all time low valuation and notes, outside of the GTF, aerospace aftermarket and Defense end-market growth is accelerating, while Otis and CCss are stable, and tax reform and the pending Collins deal could both be accretive.

United Technologies upgraded to Outperform at RBC Capital on discount valuation
As reported earlier, RBC Capital analyst Deane Dray upgraded United Technologies to Outperform from Sector Perform and raised his price target to $160 from $124. Dray says 2018 will mark the final year of margin pressure at the company's Pratt and Otis units which led to the recent underperformance. The analyst contends that United Technologies trades at about a 12% discount relative to peers, and that the market undervalues its "large and growing installed base and predictable high-margin aftermarket sales".

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. General Mills (GIS) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Michael Lavery saying he expects the company to use some of its tax reform benefit to increase "needed" brand investments. He sees the company posting 9%-10% average earnings growth over the next six quarters. 2. Ulta Beauty (ULTA) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Ike Boruchow saying he sees "compelling setup" for the shares in 2018 given the company's "material" tax benefit and potential for fundamental stabilization. 3. IBM (IBM) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Amit Daryanani citing the benefits of the mainframe cycle upgrade, a favorable FX backdrop for the first time in 3 years, recovery in hybrid IT spending leading to 1%-3% revenue growth, and attractive 11-times PE valuation. 4. Oracle (ORCL) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Keith Weiss arguing that its current low valuation with cloud expectations diminished following its last three earnings reports presents "a tactical opportunity for old fashioned earnings growth to drive the shares higher." 5. United Technologies (UTX) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital analyst Deane Dray saying 2018 will mark the final year of margin pressure at the company's Pratt and Otis units which led to the recent underperformance.
