On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Domino's Pizza (DPZ) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying he believes that the company's stock price does not adequately reflect its prospects for earnings growth and rising market share based on the management's objective of 6%-8% annual store count growth. 2. Donaldson (DCI) upgraded to Buy on valuation at Gabelli with analyst Brian Sponheimer citing valuation following the quarterly report. 3. Quest Diagnostics (DGX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Jasper Hellweg saying he has a positive view of the company's cash generation, cost controls, and share repurchases, while also pointing to its first dividend increase since the first quarter of 2016, last month. 4. D.R. Horton (DHI) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Jay McCanless saying he believes the recent pullback appears overdone. 5. Ooma (OOMA) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Nikolay Beliov saying the home Telo business is showing signs of acceleration, the Office business continues to growth, and Voxter adds capabilities to target larger companies, which will improve mix. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Equal Weight
Quest Diagnostics upgraded to Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Ricky Goldwasser upgraded Quest Diagnostics (DGX) to Equal Weight from Underweight, noting that the stock's valuation has "drifted back" toward that of peer LabCorp (LH) and he now sees the risk/reward as balanced. While PAMA reimbursement cuts are a multiyear headwind to earnings, the impact appears to be reflected in Quest Diagnostics' share price, contends Goldwasser, who raised his price target on the stock to $103 from $95.

UnitedHealth contract a potential NT catalyst for Quest, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Mark Massaro raised his price target on Quest Diagnostics (DGX) to $115 from $113 following investor meetings with Shawn Bevec, Quest's Executive Director of IR. Massaro, who reiterated a Buy rating, views Quest as an underappreciated large cap "cash cow" well positioned to consolidate labs, particularly in the $48B hospital lab market, where he says it has a "competitive edge" over LabCorp (LH). Additionally, Massaro said the fate of the UnitedHealth (UNH) contract, an exclusive to LabCorp but is set to expire at the end of the year, remains a potential near-term positive catalyst for Quest, noting that Quest is in "active dialogue" with UnitedHealth executives at the highest levels" and at Optum. Though UnitedHealth could renew the deal with LabCorp, Massaro believes it is likely that the contract will open up to both LapCorp and Quest.
