Caterpillar price target raised to $189 from $158 at BofA/Merrill

BofA/Merrill analyst Ross Gilardi reiterated his Buy rating on Caterpillar, increased estimates, and raised his price target on shares to $189 from $158 to reflect a favorable global construction dealer survey, robust industrial demand, and rising commodity prices. The analyst expects a new CFO to be announced in the coming months, which should direct investor attention towards Caterpillar's $10B in cash. Gilardi is forecasting 10-12% dividend growth from 2018-2020 and a modest $2B in buybacks.

Outperform
Caterpillar price target raised to $195 from $165 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Joel Tiss raised the price target on Caterpillar to $195 from $165, saying the company is his "best large-cap idea" in the space. Tiss says the company has lowered costs by reducing its global workforce 25% and closing/restructuring over 30 factories, forecasting margin improvement and operating efficiencies. The analyst also notes that Caterpillar will benefit from a cyclical recovery in "many depressed end markets", such as mining, energy and oil/gas. Tiss keeps his Outperform rating, adding that the new CEO Jim Umpleby and his management team can find more balance between creating shareholder value and selling reliable and productive equipment.

Overweight
Caterpillar upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Ann Duignan upgraded Caterpillar to Overweight and raised her price target for the shares to $200 from $144. The analyst believes the stock still has "significant upside" despite the outperformance in 2017. The recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is likely to extend the cycle for Caterpillar's North American Construction business, Duignan tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes the stock remains undervalued.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. United Technologies (UTX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Noah Poponak saying he 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. 2. Caterpillar (CAT) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Ann Duignan saying she believes the stock still has "significant upside" despite the outperformance in 2017. 3. Flir Systems (FLIR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Michael Ciarmoli citing the company's realigned segment structure under the new management team with a sharper focus on the larger government and industrial end-markets, forecasting outperformance driven by RAID order flow and new Department of Defense procurement initiatives. 4. Applied Materials (AMAT) upgraded to Strong Buy from Buy at Needham with analyst Y. Edwin Mok saying he is positive on the company's "balanced WFE exposure across segments" amid the likelihood of moderating NAND growth. 5. Western Union (WU) upgraded to Neutral from Negative at Susquehanna with analyst James Friedman saying he believes the company may be working with Ripple Labs to potentially implement blockchain applications in remittance and sees that as a possible accelerator with business-to-business.
