On Assignment price target raised to $73 from $66 at BMO Capital

BMO Capital analyst Jeffrey Silber raised his price target on On Assignment to $73 from $66 to reflect the company's Friday update on the impact of U.S. corporate tax cut legislation. The analyst says the management now expects the effective tax rate for 2018 will range between 25.5% and 27.5% versus his prior estimate of 38.5%. Silber also keeps his Outperform rating on On Assignment.

Outperform
On Assignment upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Avondale
Avondale analyst Randle Reece upgraded On Assignment to Outperform with a $54 price target. The analyst expects IT staffing to to lead the US staffing industry in 2017-18 growth, driven by agency staffing demand in large vertical markets such as technology and financial services, and emerging drivers. Reece's contacts say clients are seeking alternatives in managing IT labor costs in anticipation of pressures from a Trump administration on low-cost offshore service providers.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Parker-Hannifin (PH) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill, with analyst Andrew Obin saying he sees significant earnings upside in the coming years from cyclical upside from an industrial recovery combined with the operating turnaround story and integration of Clarcor. 2. Nordson (NDSN) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc, with analyst Jeffrey Hammond saying that despite concerns, he believes Nordson's Advanced Technology story has legs given improving semiconductor capex in 2017, meaningful business wins with Chinese smartphone makers pushing for greater automation, and diversification through on-wafer dispense and inspection systems as well as in Medical and Industrial. 3. Acorda Therapeutics (ACOR) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman, with analyst Salveen Richter saying recent positive data for CVT-301 in Parkinson's removes a worst-case scenario with a potential 2018 market entry to offset Ampyra. 4. On Assignment (ASGN) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Avondale, with analyst Randle Reece saying he expects IT staffing to to lead the U.S. staffing industry in 2017-18 growth, driven by agency staffing demand in large vertical markets such as technology and financial services, and emerging drivers. 5. Brady (BRC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Northcoast by analyst Keith Housum, who says he is confident guidance and consensus estimates will move higher given improving operations resulting in lower SG&A, improving revenue expectations and a strengthening balance sheet resulting in lower interest expense.

Hold
Robert Half downgraded to Hold at SunTrust
As previously noted, SunTrust analyst Tobey Sommer downgraded Robert Half (RHI) to Hold from Buy, citing the recent underperformance relative to the U.S. staffing market and moderating growth of accounting jobs. While IT staffing has improved, the segment only accounts for 12% of the company sales, Sommer writes in his research note, giving preference to a more IT staffing-centric market share gainer On Assignment (ASGN). The analyst keeps his $52 price target on Robert Half.

Outperform
On Assignment price target raised to $71 from $65 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Ed Caso raised his price target for On Assignment to $71 citing benefits from U.S. tax reform and a "continued positive business backdrop." The analyst sees an approximately 20% lift in pro forma earnings given the near marginal U.S. federal tax rate historically paid by the company and the fact that its revenue is essentially all U.S. based. Caso sees a greater likelihood of positive quarterly earnings surprises and remains comfortable with an Outperform rating on On Assignment.
