On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Verizon (VZ) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Jennifer Fritzsche saying after dropping 16% since mid-January, "much of the bad news is behind the stock" in terms of wireless service revenue declines. 2. 3D Systems (DDD) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Troy Jensen saying he sees limited downside from current share levels. 3. Viacom (VIAB, VIA) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Deutsche Bank with analyst Bryan Kraft saying he sees limited room for further multiple compression. 4. Maxwell (MXWL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Roth Capital with analyst Craig Irwin saying he sees consensus estimates as achievable for 2018, and merger synergies with NessCap should start making a more material contribution over the next few quarters. 5. National Beverage (FIZZ) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst Pablo Zuanic citing his increased conviction on the sales and bottom-line upside of the company.

Lionsgate price target raised to $40 from $36 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Steven Cahall raised his price target on Lions Gate Entertainment (LGF.B) to $40, calling it his "Top smidcap" for 2018. Cahall says that the company is a "content pureplay", which makes it defensive to changes in the ecosystem, adding that it is also the "most likely acquisition target in the space." The analyst points to reduction in earnings volatility through Starz, which he believes has an upside to its current distribution of 25M subscriptions. While there have been a number of potential suitors that want to own content, Cahall believes CBS (CBS) is the most "logical" one.

21st Century Fox price target raised to $43 from $34 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Steven Cahall raised his price target on 21st Century Fox (FOXA) to $43 and kept his Outperform rating in the wake of the asset sale to Disney (DIS). Cahall says the valuation on the SpinCo implies a 20% free cash flow yield relative to 7% at its peer CBS (CBS), and expects this discount to be corrected with an upside in the stock once the deal is fully priced in. The analyst also sees the immediate outlook for the company's revenue growth as "solid".
