Comcast might make competitive offer for Fox soon, says KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Brandon Nispel notes that Judge Richard Leon ruled in favor of AT&T (T), without condition, in a suit brought against it by the Department of Justice over its acquisition of Time Warner (TWX). The analyst believes this decision could drive additional media M&A expectations and thinks a formal offer by Comcast (CMCSA; CMCSK) for 21st Century Fox (FOXA) can come as soon as today. Nispel believes 21st Century Fox is the last of the scaled media companies, which makes it appropriate for Comcast to aggressively pursue the company. Additionally, the analyst does not see Verizon (VZ) as a likely buyer of traditional media assets

After meeting with CEO, JPMorgan upgrades Verizon to Overweight
JPMorgan analyst Philip Cusick upgraded Verizon Communications to Overweight from Neutral with an unchanged price target of $58. The shares closed yesterday up 81c to $47.20. After meeting with CEO Lowell McAdam, Cusick says he has a better understanding that Verizon's "organic approach to wireless has the company on an increasingly stable footing." Further, the analyst believes Verizon's 5G opportunity "will start to crystallize in the next few months." Cusick expects the company's revenue to stabilize and notes the stock is down 11% this year. The analyst is positive on the 5% dividend yield and "free 5G optionality."

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 Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Philip Cusick saying after a meeting with CEO Lowell McAdam, he has a better understanding that Verizon's "organic approach to wireless has the company on an increasingly stable footing." 2. Mosaic (MOS) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Andrew Wong saying that it is "hard to ignore the improving undercurrents in both phosphate and potash markets." 3. Ultragenyx (RARE) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Gena Wang saying she thinks a higher price target for Crysvita could drive upside to revenue growth expectations. 4. U.S. Bancorp (USB) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Keith Horowitz saying now is an opportune time to build positions in the stock after three years of significant underperformance. 5. AMC Networks (AMCX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Gabelli with the firm saying it remains an excelling company with opportunities to leverage its recent programming momentum into increased advertising and affiliate fees.

Goldman Sachs price target raised to $245 from $221 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham raised his price target on Goldman Sachs (GS) to $245 after the company's Q1 revenue beat, saying it is "back to stealing market share in its core business" as its FICC - fixed income, currencies, and commodities - trading rose 23% vs. a 4% decline for peers. The analyst adds that while Goldman Sachs will continue to experience positive operating leverage, its valuation relative to Morgan Stanley (MS) cannot be justified, favoring the latter based on its greater exposure to higher-multiple asset management businesses. Fotheringham keeps his Market Perform rating on Goldman Sachs.

Goldman Sachs earnings inherently 'volatile', says Argus
Argus analyst Stephen Biggar keeps his Hold rating on Goldman Sachs after its Q1 earnings beat, saying the company's as "strength in underwriting, equities trading and securities lending offset weaker financial advisory revenue". Biggar further notes that as a "capital markets pure play", Goldman Sachs has move volatile earnings than other large global banks and is more dependent on client activity. The analyst further cites Q1 outperformance as a result of a "ripe environment" for Goldman's business mix, but does not expect market volatility to continue.

Microsoft trading at discount to peers, says UBS
UBS analyst Jennifer Swanson Lowe believes Microsoft's current price undervalues both the emerging Cloud story and the durable on-premise legacy businesses. The analyst said Microsoft content is taking center stage as it acquired four game studios and formed a fifth. She also believes the strength of the Azure platform can be a differentiator for the company. Lowe reiterated her Buy rating and $114 price target on Microsoft shares.

Microsoft gaming model moving 'from Gillette to Netflix,' says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss said announcements from E3 and his meeting with Executive VP of Gaming at Microsoft (MSFT), Phil Spencer, supported his view that the company's gaming division is "moving from Gillette to Netflix," meaning that its model is being transformed from a "razor/razor blade model" built on the Xbox console base towards a subscription gaming service streaming from Azure to all types of devices. Adding five new development studios to buttress Microsoft's first-party content particularly supported this view, said Weiss, who keeps an Overweight rating and $130 price target on Microsoft shares.

Microsoft kicks game up a notch, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Mark Moerdler notes that Microsoft is, "not surprisingly," increasing its investments in gaming by adding 5 new creative teams to Microsoft Studios, launching a brand-new gaming Studio - The Initiative, acquiring Playground Games, and announcing letters of intent to acquire Ninja Theory, Undead Labs and Compulsion Games. Microsoft is making numerous small acquisitions and launching significant new game development capability, he points out, adding that it is unlikely that Microsoft will make any large content creation acquisition after these announcements. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $123 price target on the shares.

Microsoft price target raised to $116 from $107 at Argus
Argus analyst Joseph Bonner maintained a Buy rating on Focus List choice Microsoft and raised his price target by $9 to $116 following the company's plans to acquire GitHub for $7.5B in stock, the second-largest acquisition in Microsoft's history. In a research note to investors, Bonner says the purchase is the biggest sign yet of the monumental shift in Microsoft's strategy and orientation under Satya Nadella, its CEO, and that Nadella has sought to shift the company to an open-source ethos that dovetails with its Azure cloud services business rather than seeking to protect Windows software at any cost. Bonner maintained his FY18 EPS forecast of $3.84 and FY19 forecast of $3.92.
