Orbital ATK reports options awarded for two more weather satellites for NOAA

Orbital ATK announced that NASA has exercised options for two additional Joint Polar Satellite System spacecraft to be built by the company. Orbital ATK is currently producing the JPSS-2 spacecraft, which is scheduled to be launched in 2021. All three satellites are to be operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, to provide critical weather forecasting data and to advance environmental and oceanographic science. The JPSS-3 and JPSS-4 are on contract for delivery in 2023 and 2026, respectively, with launch dates determined by NOAA/NASA. The total contract amount for all three spacecraft is valued at approximately $460M.

Northrop Grumman upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Seth Seifman upgraded Northrop Grumman (NOC) to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $355 from $317. More profitable F-35 growth will accelerate in 2018 while management's initial take on the Orbital ATK (OA) deal, including synergies, will prove conservative, Seifman tells investors in a research note. He calls Northrop his top defense prime pick.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Verizon (VZ) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet by analyst Jeffrey Kvaal, who said that better visibility into subscriber growth, rising average revenue per user and cost control will drive earnings growth in 2018. Further, he believes tax reform should also boost the company's earnings. The analyst thinks signs of easing competition may also spur multiple expansion. 2. Northrop Grumman (NOC) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst Seth Seifman, who said that more profitable F-35 growth will accelerate in 2018 while management's initial take on the Orbital ATK (OA) deal, including synergies, will prove conservative. He called Northrop his top defense prime pick. 3. Activision Blizzard (ATVI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs by analyst Christopher Merwin, who recommends owning this discounted "high-quality" asset ahead of accelerating earnings growth over the next 2-3 years. Merwin raised Activision's 2019 and 2020 estimates to reflect a robust pipeline of games including Diablo, Overwatch 2, and a Blizzard mobile title, which he does not believe Street estimates fully reflect. 4. Abbott (ABT) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital by analyst Joanne Wuensch, who said she is placing the stock on her "Top Picks" list, noting that 2018 will be the "year of execution" with several product launches ahead and acquisitions of Alere and St. June in the past. 5. HCA Healthcare (HCA), Tenet (THC) and Universal Health (UHS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi by analyst Ralph Giacobbe, who cited a more constructive view on the hospital space. The analyst sees a better volume backdrop in 2018 and low expectations for the sector. He believes hospital stocks offer an attractive upside scenario.

Northrop Grumman resmed with a Buy from Neutral at Citi
Citi analyst Jonathan Raviv resumed coverage of Northrop Grumman (NOC) and upgraded the shares to Buy from Neutral. The pending Orbital (OA) acquisition changes the story in Northrop's favor by enabling modest margin expansion while the company maintains attractive growth, Raviv tells investors in a research note. The analyst raised his price target for the shares to $405 from $280.
