UPGRADE

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 Continental (UAL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Buckingham with the firm citing the active steps the company is taking to address revenue weakness, its commercial initiatives, a favorable macro backdrop that is driving booking strength, and the longer term cash implications of tax reform. 2. Wendy's (WEN) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Nick Setyan citing "solid" same-store sales growth and visibility into free cash flow generation. 3. Biogen (BIIB) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Alethia Young saying a "significant turnaround" is underway for Biogen's business. 4. Steel Dynamics (STLD) was upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Longbow while, U.S. Steel (X), AK Steel (AKS), and Nucor (NUE) were upgraded to Buy from Neutral. 5. Zimmer Biomet (ZBH) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Isaac Ro saying he sees Bryan Hanson's CEO appointment as a positive step forward in the turnaround process, although he noted that the company's fundamentals are still challenged and the turnaround will take time. Shares were also upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Buy
Wendy's price target raised to $22 from $17 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Jake Bartlett raised his price target on Wendy's (WEN) to $22 as part of his "Buy the Tax News" research note on Restaurants. Bartlett says Wendy's multiple will expand to reflect investors' appreciation of the company's accelerating free cash flows and unit growth as it benefits from lower corporate tax rates. The analyst also expects the personal tax relief to support same store sales at Wendy's despite the greater focus on the value offered at McDonald's (MCD).
