On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Time Warner (TWX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst John Hodulik saying while he expects the takeover by AT&T (T) to receive regulatory approval, he believes the current environment would make Time Warner's assets "highly attractive" to other media companies and Internet-based competitors were the deal to be blocked. 2. Carlyle Group (CG) and Apollo Global (APO) were upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi. 3. Merck (MRK) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Leerink with analyst Seamus Fernandez saying Keytruda will continue to dominate the first-line non-small cell lung cancer market. 4. SAP (SAP) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst Stewart Materne III saying that he believes the risk/reward is more attractive at current levels following the stock's 6% pullback. 5. Aratana Therapeutics (PETX) upgraded to Buy on valuation at CL King with the firm citing favorable risk/reward. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Citi says AkzoNobel free to think more strategically about M&A after divestiture
After AkzoNobel (AKZOY) announced the sale of its Specialty Chemicals business to Carlyle Group (CG) and GIC, Citi analyst P.J. Juvekar said the divestiture frees up the company to think more strategically about M&A. Akzo could go after Axalta (AXTA) again, but unless Akzo is prepared to pay a significant premium a deal is unlikely, said Juvekar. He thinks a price in the mid to high $30 range would be needed to get Axalta to the negotiating table. Akzo has thus far resisted a sale to PPG (PPG), but Juvekar thinks PPG would be interested if a deal were to be a friendly one.

Newell Brands agreement with Icahn a win for CEO Polk, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy noted that Newell Brands reached an agreement with activist investor Carl Icahn to appoint five directors nominated by Icahn to the company's board, a board which totals eleven directors. In exchange, Icahn agreed to vote all his shares -- he disclosed a 6.9% stake in Newell -- in favor of Newell's nominees. The firm believes that while this news may come as a surprise, it will lead to the shares trading up, and called it a "big win" for CEO Michael Polk, despite the five seats given up being "a hefty price." Jefferies maintained a Hold rating and $29 price target on Newell shares.

Newell Brands likely to get worse before better, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Andrea Teixeira said that while the Carl Icahn-nominated board appointees should "provide comfort around the stability of the company's performance ahead," Newell's performance is "likely to get worse in the near term" before it improves, and the company will still has a proxy battle with Starboard to deal with despite the Icahn agreement. Teixeira maintained a Neutral rating on Newell shares, but raised his price target to $28 from $26.

Newell Brands downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst William Chappell downgraded Newell Brands to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target to $30 from $35. Chappell says the stock is in "no-man's land" for a few quarters after its decision to increase its asset sale to $10B from $6B without disclosing which assets are sold following its recent agreement with activist shareholder Starboard Value. Chappell adds that it is difficult to assess the company's fundamentals and recommend the stock when the makeup of its business is unclear.

Macerich (MAC) and Simon Property (SPG) were downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan. 3. Kimco Realty (KIM) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Richard Hill saying he is cautious on REITs in general, but higher quality strips are better positioned to mitigate decelerating growth risks. 4. Range Resources (RRC) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein with analyst Bob Brackett saying he believes gas levered names, particularly those with significant debt loads, are likely to struggle as gas prices compress cash margins. 5. Dominion Midstream (DM) downgraded to In Line from Outperform at Evercore ISI. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
