Western Union is testing transactions with Ripple, Bloomberg says

Western Union confirmed that it is evaluating blockchain technology and testing transactions with cryptocurrency startup Ripple, Bloomberg reports, citing comments CEO Hikmet Ersek made on a conference call.

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.
