Buy
Best Buy price target raised to $80 from $72 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba raised his price target on Best Buy (BBY) to $80, noting a more optimistic outlook for the stock thanks to some recent developments. The analyst cites strong November-December U.S. retail sales reports, PC shipments rising in Q4 for the first time in six years, and some closures of stores by Sears Holdings (SHLD) and Wal-Mart's (WMT) Sam's Club. Chukumba keeps his Buy rating on Best Buy.

Goldman upgrades Walmart to Conviction Buy ahead of 'meaningful' dividend raise
Goldman Sachs analyst Matthew Fassler upgraded Walmart to Buy and added the shares to his firm's Conviction List. He upped his price target for the retailing giant to $117 from $115. Walmart closed yesterday up $2.01 to $102.70. Selling consumables to middle-income consumers in small markets remains a compelling strategic position, Fassler tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes that while most of retail is still subject to significant disruption, Walmart "is still very much in control of its own destiny." He expects a "meaningful" dividend raise as Walmart redeploys cash from tax savings, and repatriated overseas cash.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Walmart (WMT) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Matthew Fassler saying selling consumables to middle-income consumers in small markets remains a compelling strategic position. 2. Hertz (HTZ) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie with analyst Hamzah Mazari saying he is more bullish on 2018 rental car pricing given fleet cutting by Enterprise, the positive impact on corporate travel from tax reform, and the potential US infrastructure bill creating excess demand. For Hertz specifically. 3. Alarm.com (ALRM) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies analyst John DiFucci saying Alarm.com is at the forefront of the trend towards connected homes and devices. 4. PPL Corp. (PPL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Jonathan Arnold saying the current valuation is "too cheap to ignore," and U.K. energy regulator Ofgem failing to implement a mid-period review of RIIO-ED1 offers "decent prospects for a near-term re-rating catalyst." 5. Fluor (FLR) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Jamie Cook saying investors will gravitate back to Engineering & Construction stocks as fundamentals for the group are improving.

Goldman Sachs price target lowered to $221 from $239 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham lowered his price target on Goldman Sachs to $221 and kept his Market Perform rating despite the investment bank's significant top line beat in Q4. Fotheringham cites a higher than previously modeled 2018 tax rate of 24% versus his forecast of 19% as well as a higher share count. The analyst adds that Goldman Sachs shares trade "well above their long-term historical average forward P/E multiple, even after considering the direct and indirect earnings benefits expected from the TCJA".

Sector Perform
Goldman Sachs price target raised to $265 from $240 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Gerard Cassidy raised his price target on Goldman Sachs to $265 and kept his Sector Perform rating following Q4 earnings. Cassidy contends that the weak trading results, particularly in FICC, were more than offset by Goldman's "diversified revenue mix, led by strong Investment banking results and private equity gains". The analyst also notes the company's efforts to grow and deepen relationships across its major businesses, while deriving further benefits from the "actual and perceived loosening of regulations under the Trump administration".
