Synergy funding worries may be overdone, says BTIG
BTIG analyst Timothy Chiang noted that Synergy Pharmaceuticals (SGYP) announced that Trulance received expanded FDA approval for IBS-C, which puts it more on par with market leader Linzess from Ironwood (IRWD) and Allergan (AGN). He sees Trulance benefiting from increased payor access and believes the company will have sufficient cash in order to gain access to a second loan tranche of $100M expected by next month, stating that funding worries may be overdone. Chiang keeps a Buy rating and $7 price target on Synergy shares.

Allergan upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Douglas Tsao upgraded Allergan to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $230 from $220. The Botox maker closed Friday down 19c to $186.93. Allergan's aesthetics franchise is undervalued at current share levels, Tsao tells investors in a research note. The analyst notes he's been on the sidelines with respect to the stock for three-plus years. Tsao says his firm's survey of 61 plastic surgeons and dermatologists validates Botox's market leader position. Physicians in the survey reported that 67% of Botox patients are "very satisfied" with results, which was well ahead of Dysport and Xeomin at 36% & 20%, respectively, Tsao writes.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Allergan (AGN) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Douglas Tsao saying Allergan's aesthetics franchise is undervalued at current share levels. 2. Halliburton (HAL) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Atlantic Equities. 3. Ruth's Hospitality (RUTH) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Brian Vaccaro saying he is optimistic the high end steakhouse category can sustain into 2018 as strong business sentiment and corporate tax cuts bode well for T&E budgets. 4. Unilever (UN, UL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Investec. 5. Kinder Morgan (KMI) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Bill Selesky citing the company's "strong recent operational performance," the management's plan for a dividend hike, and attractive valuation in his rating change. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Acorda remains takeover candidate after competitor data, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Michael Yee believes the positive Phase III topline results from Acorda Therapeutics (ACOR) competitor Sunovion for APL-130277 in Parkinson's patients came in as expected. While APL-130277 data compares favorably over Inbrija's 3.92 point difference at week 12, Yee cautions to compare directly head-to-head since patient baseline characteristics could be different. Acorda remains a "reasonably likely" acquisition candidate in 2018 given its $300M-$500M-plus Parkinson's asset Inbrija, Yee tells investors in a research note. The analyst does not think Biogen (BIIB) should buy the company, but sees other potential suitors in AbbVie (ABBV), Allergan (AGN), Mitsubishi, Roche (RHHBY) and Shire (SHPG). He believes a takeover price could be north of $2B. Yee keeps a Hold rating on Acorda with a $25 price target.
