On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Nike (NKE) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush analyst Christopher Svezia saying the brand's new footwear styles are "notably higher" versus a year ago while comparisons are easing, particularly around key categories like basketball. 2. Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Eade saying the stock has "fallen out of favor" with its core market, but the turnaround strategy implemented by the new CEO, along with the hiring of a Chief Marketing Officer, has produced two consecutive quarter of earnings beats. 3. Chipotle (CMG) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Raymond James with analyst Brian Vaccaro citing fair valuation and no longer sees downside risk given management's decision to take a third and final round of menu price increases and stabilizing industry demand trends. 4. Foot Locker (FL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Telsey Advisory with analyst Kelly Chen saying the worst of the athletic industry's issues have passed. 5. Philip Morris (PM) and Altria Group (MO) were upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Jefferies sees 'big opportunity' in British American Tobacco after selloff
Jefferies analyst Owen Bennett sees a "big opportunity" in shares of British American Tobacco (BTI) following yesterday's selloff. There is a "very strange disconnect here," Bennett tells investors in a research note. The 3.5% pullback doesn't make sense, he adds. He believes that if the market thinks Philip Morris' (PM) IQOS won't get approved, then it is a positive for British American Tobacco. The analyst thinks the selloff can only be explained by holders assuming a Premarket Tobacco Application for IQOS will be approved. Such an approval will likely create support for Philip Morris and Altria Group (MO), Bennett argues. Following conversations in the U.S., the analyst sees a "complete lack of knowledge" around where British American Tobacco stands with heated tobacco approvals. Bennett has Buy ratings on all three stocks.
