United Continental upgraded to Outperform at Bernstein
As previously reported, Bernstein analyst David Vernon upgraded United Continental to Outperform from Market Perform following the recent selloff and as he sees sufficient upside. While Vernon acknowledges that United has issues, namely great hubs in unmatched locations that do not produce good results because they have not been managed properly, the analyst believes the company is taking steps to address that deficiency.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Foot Locker (FL) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer with analyst Anna Andreeva saying with Nike's (NKE) "onset" of innovation and adidas' (ADDYY) ongoing momentum, Foot Locker is poised to stabilize as 2018 unfolds. 2. American Airlines (AAL) and United Continental (UAL) were upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Bernstein. 3. Biogen (BIIB) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Carter Gould saying the market is underappreciating Biogen's pipeline opportunity and the potential for additional assets to be added through acquisitions. 4. Autoliv (ALV) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst David Leiker saying the core business appears to be at the inflection of delivering on strong market share gains from airbag recalls. 5. Time Warner (TWX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at MoffettNathanson. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Spirit Airlines upgraded to Outperform from In-Line at Imperial Capital
Imperial Capital analyst Michael Derchin upgraded Spirit Airlines to Outperform and raised his price target for the shares to $49 from $42. The shares are fully discounting the impact from the potential contract with the pilots and the competitive situation with United Continental (UAL), Derchin tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees upside from "strong" ancillary revenues, operational improvements, and decelerating capacity growth.

JPMorgan sees Airlines raising Q1 outlooks at next week's conference
JPMorgan analyst James Baker believes several Airlines will raise their Q1 guidance at his firm's Aviation, Transportation and Industrials Conference next week. He expects near-term consensus estimates to move higher for the airlines coming out of the presentations, particularly for United Continental (UAL). The analyst recommends increasing exposure to the sector ahead of the conference. He raised his estimates for United the most, taking his Q1 earnings per share forecast up to 32c from 3c. Other names in the space include American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU) and Southwest (LUV).
