On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Lennar (LEN) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Michael Dahl saying he now expects higher returns, margins and growth, and thinks "strong" free cash flow" creates balance sheet optionality. 2.

Outperform
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.

Morgan Stanley says Ares may be first, Apollo may gain most from C-corp convert
Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys said he sees an opportunity for Alternative Asset Managers to unlock value by converting to C-corps, as shifting from a partnership structure could help alleviate some tax reporting complexities and expand the universe of eligible investors. He sees Ares Management (ARES) as possibly the first to convert and expects a potential announcement or indications of management's intentions about a conversion when the company reports earnings on February 15. While Ares may be first, Cyprys sees Apollo Global (APO) as potentially being able to unlock the most value from a conversion, with 26% near-term upside possible if the shares re-rate. He sees a less favorable conversion scenario for asset managers with lower taxes and/or greater exposure to performance fees, including KKR (KKR), Carlyle Group (CG) and Blackstone (BX), Cyprys tells investors.

Ares Management downgraded to Market Perform on valuation at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Christopher Harris downgraded Ares Management to Market Perform from Outperform with an unchanged price target of $25. The analyst shareholder value has been unlocked following the post-earrings 8% rise in the stock. The company's switch to corporate tax status comes with several benefits, but the valuation is fair at current share levels, Harris tells investors in a research note.
