Barclays analyst Michael Dahl upgraded Lennar (LEN) to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $72 from $68 after incorporating the acquisition of CalAtlantic (CAA).

Exxon Mobil downgraded to Underweight from Overweight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Paul Cheng double downgraded Exxon Mobil (XOM) to Underweight from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $84 from $91. The analyst recommends investors shift from Exxon Mobil to Chevron (CVX), a stock he upgraded this morning to Overweight. Exxon closed yesterday down $4.81 to $79.72. Exxon may not be able to maintain its historical valuation premium, Cheng tells investors in a research note. He thinks the company's valuation still reflects "rich historical norms," while the upstream's underlying fundamentals "appear to have suffered a structural deterioration." Exxon's upstream problem "may take years or even a decade to overcome," Cheng argues.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Barclays analyst Paul Cheng upgraded Chevron (CVX) to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $135 from $130. The analyst recommends investors shift to Chevron from Exxon Mobil (XOM), a stock he double downgraded this morning to Underweight. Chevron's fundamentals are improving at a faster pace than many of the other mega majors, Cheng said. 2. Micron (MU) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc by analyst Weston Twigg. Following the company's positive preannouncement amid "strong" DRAM pricing, the valuation and long-term trends "are too compelling to ignore," Twigg said. Micron was also upgraded to Strong Buy from Buy at Needham. 3. Skyworks (SWKS) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital by analyst Ambrish Srivastava, who cited the company's "ability to sustain a higher level of free cash flows to sales ratio than in the past and its commitment to higher capital allocation." Skyworks was also upgraded to Buy from Hold at Summit Insights. 4. HSBC (HSBC) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Santander. 5. RBS (RBS) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill by analyst Michael Helsby, who said the rise in rates has led to a steeper yield curve in the U.K. which should result in higher earnings.

Roth says Wynn Resorts removing 'a visionary, not an overhang,' cuts to Neutral
As previously reported, Roth Capital analyst David Bain downgraded Wynn Resorts to Neutral from Buy following the news of Steve Wynn stepping down as Chairman and CEO. The analyst believes Wynn's resignation is unlikely to shift investor discussions to fundamentals. Instead, he believes it raises additional questions on potential risks and simultaneously "removes one of, if not the greatest hospitality leaders and visionaries" from a company he created and "actively and intimately molds on a daily basis." Bain lowered his price target on Wynn shares to $170 from $210.

They also made progress on its advertising platform, but the analyst said the key for 2018 will be to see its density build.

Barclays gives Snap its first 'Gatorade shower,' ups price target to $21
Barclays analyst Ross Sandler raised his price target for Snap to $21 from $18 saying the company last night reported daily active users and revenue that were 4M and 13% above consensus. In a post-earnings research note titled "SNAP Takes Its First Gatorade Shower," Sandler adds that the tone of the conference call was upbeat. He reiterates his belief that the worst is behind Snap and thinks the stock can "grind higher" despite today's 21% rally. The stock in premarket trading is up $2.89 to $16.95. Ross keeps an Overweight rating on the name.

The analyst, who still sees challenges and uncertainties as Snap works to turn its platform around, only increased his 2018 and 2019 revenue estimates by 3% each following the Q4 report. Nowak edged up his price target on Snap to $11 from $10 and keeps an Underweight rating on the stock, which has been upgraded by at least six other firms this morning.

The analyst sees upside from "strong" ancillary revenues, operational improvements, and decelerating capacity growth.

Spirit Airlines (SAVE) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Joseph DeNardi saying he believes Spirit will benefit this year from an improving demand and revenue environment, but that its higher revenue risk relative to potential competitive responses to its expected capacity growth is not fully reflected in the stock at current levels. 5.
