Amazon upgraded to Outperform with $2,000 target at Wolfe Research
As previously reported, Wolfe Research analyst Scott Mushkin upgraded Amazon.com to Outperform from Peer Perform and set a calendar year-end 2018 price target of $2,000 on the stock. He believes that if Amazon can "get grocery right," it can lead to unprecedented growth, create a halo effect for the rest of Amazon's categories and drive stronger than expected revenue growth, Mushkin tells investors. The analyst, who predicts Amazon can grow its North American EBIT margins to 8% by 2028, sees the implications for other retailers, especially those who offer staples, as "very negative."

Morgan Stanley says Walmart may need investment step up to compete with Amazon
Morgan Stanley analyst Simeon Gutman said Walmart's (WMT) e-commerce systems and infrastructure were not equipped to handle seasonal demand. For context, he noted that in the fourth quarter of 2015, Amazon (AMZN) endured execution issues related to greater than expected Fulfilled By Amazon demand. However, Amazon's issues at that time resulted in cost pressure, whereas Walmart's resulted in lost sales, Gutman tells investors. He thinks any solution will result in increased spending by Walmart, either through software, logistics or new fulfillment centers. Additionally, Walmart faces an uphill battle in resonating with a broader base of e-commerce consumers, which may require stepped up marking spending, he adds. Gutman lowered his price target on Walmart to $99 from $106 and keeps his Equal Weight rating on the shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. UPS (UPS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital by analyst Rick Paterson, who attributed the recent selloff, in part, to news on February 9 that Amazon (AMZN) plans to offer some limited parcel delivery services to third parties. The analyst believes concerns around Amazon "may be a little overblown." Paterson believes Amazon represents about 4%-6% of "lower margin" revenues at UPS. If all of that is ultimately brought into Amazon's own network, "that's hardly a disaster," he contended. 2. Schlumberger (SLB) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill by analyst Timna Tanners, who said shares underperformed and fund ownership fell in 2017 as investor focus shifted towards more shale-focused names. Tanners believes the oil/gas price recovery cycle will shift focus to International with activity slowing recovering and pricing firming more in 2019. Further, the analyst believes SPM's contribution is underappreciated and expects a project payoff and/or stake sale in 2019. 3. HP Inc (HPQ) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst Paul Coster, who cited valuation following the company's Q1 results. The analyst believes the shares may now look attractive for value investors and sees U.S. tax reform and foreign currency moves as tailwinds. 4. Finish Line (FINL) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna by analyst Sam Poser, who said channel checks indicate that sales and promotional trends in Q4 were not as bad as its guidance anticipated. He believes management has better positioned the company's marketing and promotional calendar as an adjustment to the late tax refund checks. 5. Duke Energy (DUK) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank (DB) by analyst Jonathan Arnold, who said Friday's constructive order from the North Carolina Utilities Commission in the Duke Energy Progress rate case effectively allows recovery of a majority of the utility's historical costs related to coal ash basin closures. He sees the order as largely resolving the outstanding regulatory risk associated with coal ash cost recovery in North Carolina and likely offering a positive read-across to the larger Duke Energy Carolinas rate case.

Amazon ramping automation, still in early innings of private label, says Cowen
Cowen analyst John Blackledge met with industry participants to discuss various Amazon products. They contend Amazon is still in the early innings of it private label buildup, it can capture 25-40% market share for a new SKU, and Softlines, Consumables, and Groceries are growth areas. The analyst, who sees leaner inventories and continual automation of the buying process, reiterated his Outperform rating and $1,700 price target on Amazon.com shares.

The analyst adds that the current valuation on the stock offers a 15% discount to cable/broadband peers, which can narrow over time as the company drives further operational improvements.
