Mondelez upgraded to Buy following 'solid' Q4 at Societe Generale
As previously reported, Societe Generale upgraded Mondelez to Buy from Hold with a $55 price target, up from $45. Analyst Warren Ackerman said Q4 results were "solid" as emerging markets are rebounding strongly and the worst is over in North America. Ackerman things 2018 guidance is conservative and the strategic review could unlock further potential upside.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. MasterCard (MA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Stephen Biggar saying the stock should trade above its historical average earnings multiple, with effective tax rate of 20% seen below 27% in 2017 as well as continued strong purchase volumes and growth in cross-border volumes and processed transactions. 2. Tableau (DATA) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Maxim with analyst Nehal Chokshi citing normalized bookings accelerating to 26% growth in the fourth quarter and sees normalized sales productivity stabilizing at about a 33% level. 3. Mondelez (MDLZ) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Societe Generale with analyst Warren Ackerman saying fourth quarter results were "solid" as emerging markets are rebounding strongly and the worst is over in North America. 4. Huntington Ingalls (HII) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Gautam Khanna saying the shares are "excessively discounted" relative to the large cap defense peer average. 5. Sherwin-Williams (SHW) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Seaport Global with analyst Michael Harrison saying the Valspar deal adds another layer of potential growth.

UBS downgrades Hershey to Sell on reduced chocolate buying frequency
UBS analyst Steven Strycula downgraded Hershey (HSY) to Sell from Neutral and cut his price target for the shares to $90 from $106. The stock closed yesterday up 51c to $99.36. Hershey's portfolio is over-exposed to slowing category consumption, intensifying competition, and rising cocoa prices, Strycula tells investors in a research note. The analyst notes that his firm's research indicates reduced purchase frequency for everyday chocolate as preferences shift consumption to healthier snack alternatives and online purchases. These "longer-tailed trends" carry negative margin mix and potential distribution losses for Hershey, he writes. Further, Strycula sees risk of Hershey losing U.S. share as Mars ramps production capacity, Ferrero revitalizes Nestle's legacy U.S. portfolio and Mondelez (MDLZ) accelerates its entry into U.S. chocolate.

Fluor price target lowered to $48 from $60 at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Daniel Scott lowered his price target on Fluor to $48 and kept his Neutral rating after its Q1 results, saying the quarter was once again impacted by a charge around forecast revisions on the company's gas power project. The analyst adds that that the operating margin of 1.1% was below his view of 4.5%, driven by significant underperformance of the Mining, Industrial, Infrastructure & Power segment after Mining was moved out of the Energy&Chemicals division. Scott further cites Fluor's $2.5B in new awards for the quarter, missing his forecast of $3.6B and consensus view of $4.1B, adding that the company needs to report a "couple of clean quarter" and help investors "get comfortable" with the risk profile of the Canada LNG project.

Fluor upgraded to Buy on capex improvement at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded Fluor two notches to Buy from Underperform and raised its price target to $58 from $37. Analyst Anna Kaminskaya said she is more constructive on the energy and mining capex cycle, which should recover in 2H 2018, as firms catch up on under investment over the past few years. The analyst believes we are in the "early innings" of the capex cycle that will upstage margin risk at Fluor's current valuation, where profits for the segment can at least double.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Fluor (FLR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Anna Kaminskaya saying she is more constructive on the energy and mining capex cycle, which should recover in the second half of 2018, as firms catch up on under investment over the past few years. 2. T2 Biosystems (TTOO) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Janney Capital. 3. Adient (ADNT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Longbow with analyst Anthony Deem saying he believes shares are de-risked following the cut in 2020 guidance and views risk/reward as attractive given his confidence in the turnaround plan for the SS&M segment. 4. PPL Corp. (PPL) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI. 5. Arconic (ARNC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Longbow with analyst Chris Olin saying the negative reaction to disappointing earnings and guidance, related to short-term headwinds, has created a favorable risk/reward profile, and sees upstream production capacity constraints supporting margin expansion over the next 2-3 years.
