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 Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet by analyst Jeffrey Kvaal, who said that better visibility into subscriber growth, rising average revenue per user and cost control will drive earnings growth in 2018. Further, he believes tax reform should also boost the company's earnings. The analyst thinks signs of easing competition may also spur multiple expansion. 2. Northrop Grumman (NOC) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst Seth Seifman, who said that more profitable F-35 growth will accelerate in 2018 while management's initial take on the Orbital ATK (OA) deal, including synergies, will prove conservative. He called Northrop his top defense prime pick. 3. Activision Blizzard (ATVI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs by analyst Christopher Merwin, who recommends owning this discounted "high-quality" asset ahead of accelerating earnings growth over the next 2-3 years. Merwin raised Activision's 2019 and 2020 estimates to reflect a robust pipeline of games including Diablo, Overwatch 2, and a Blizzard mobile title, which he does not believe Street estimates fully reflect. 4. Abbott (ABT) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital by analyst Joanne Wuensch, who said she is placing the stock on her "Top Picks" list, noting that 2018 will be the "year of execution" with several product launches ahead and acquisitions of Alere and St. June in the past. 5. HCA Healthcare (HCA), Tenet (THC) and Universal Health (UHS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi by analyst Ralph Giacobbe, who cited a more constructive view on the hospital space. The analyst sees a better volume backdrop in 2018 and low expectations for the sector. He believes hospital stocks offer an attractive upside scenario.

JPMorgan analyst Seth Seifman downgraded Raytheon ((RTN) to Neutral while raising his price target for the shares to $210 from $190.
