Square upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel
Stifel analyst Scott Devitt upgraded Square to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $55 from $46. The stock in premarket trading is down 5%, or $2.51, to $46.15. The analyst views last night's Q1 results as "impressive," highlighting the 31% gross payment volume growth versus last year. Adjusted revenue growth accelerated for the fourth consecutive quarter amid continued strength in Subscription and Services, Devitt tells investors in a post-earnings research note. Further, the analyst "strongly" supports Square's decision to reinvest in key strategic areas.

Square should be bought on earnings selloff, says Jefferies
While lower margins is pressuring the shares, reinvesting in the business to drive "this magnitude of growth" is the right long term strategy for Square, Jefferies analyst Ramsey El-Assal tells investors in a post-earnings research note. He recommends buying the dip in Square shares following last night's Q1 results and keeps a Buy rating on the name with a $60 price target.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tableau (DATA) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at MUFG with analyst Stephen Bersey saying the company made "material progress" in its subscription transition during the first quarter, which depressed revenue and earnings in the quarter. 2. XO Group (XOXO) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley FBR with analyst Sameet Sinha saying the company's "solid" Q1 results indicate an acceleration in revenue growth. 3. Square (SQ) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Scott Devitt saying he views last night's Q1 results as "impressive," highlighting the 31% gross payment volume growth versus last year. 4. Yum! Brands (YUM) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird. 5. 3M (MMM) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Deane Dray saying the 4-month decline in the stock price has taken its valuation to its historical relative PE support level.

Square for Restaurants may be 'missing ingredients,' says Citi
After Square earlier today unveiled Square for Restaurants, a fully integrated point of sale system for the industry, Citi analyst Peter Christiansen said that it appears Square will have some hardware gaps or need to reply on third parties for some functionality. The analyst, who added that food and drink is likely Square's most important vertical, said that multi-vendor support for food delivery "could be the killer app for many independent restaurants," while noting that Square remains exclusive on delivery integration with Caviar. Christiansen keeps a Neutral rating on Square shares.
