On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Exelon (EXC) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs by analyst Michael Lapides, with a $43 price target, as the analyst sees higher sum-of-parts value, potential upside to consensus estimates, and few near-term negative catalysts. 2. Harley-Davidson (HOG) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Longbow by analyst David MacGregor, citing valuation despite channel checks that indicate continued weakness in U.S. sales. MacGregor continues to be concerned about weak U.S. retail sales trends but views shares as fairly valued following his downgrade in January. 3. Jacobs Engineering (JEC) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank by analyst Chad Dillard, who said the market is pricing in a near certain probability the CH2M merger integration will fail. He believes the concerns are overdone and thinks the risk of this merger is lower than other deals in the space. Jacobs management has a strong execution track record, Dillard contended. The analyst sees a path to 65% earnings growth and a doubling of free cash flow over the next three years. As such, he views the stock as "significantly undervalued." 4. Akamai (AKAM) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley by analyst Keith Weiss. After a period of declining margins, he sees signs of stability, noting that following the involvement of activist Elliott Management the company has announced a 5% workforce reduction and new shareholder value initiatives. Also, the contribution from Akamai's top 6 Media customers looks to have stabilized after two years of steep declines and his customer survey indicating a more defensible core base, Weiss said. 5. Yandex (YNDX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi by analyst Brady Martin, who updated his model to reflect the company's better than expected fiscal 2017 financials as well as the taxi transaction with Uber that closed in February. Martin noted that Yandex continues to increase share on both desktop and mobile. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Credit Suisse upgrades First Solar to Neutral amid 'overblown' Section 301 fears
As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Michael Weinstein upgraded First Solar (FSLR) to Neutral from Underperform, noting that solar manufacturers and developers' stocks have recently slumped on concerns about the fresh round of "Section 301" tariffs on Chinese imports. However, he thinks the negative reaction is "overblown" for the space, and "even more overblown" for First Solar, which Weinstein notes doesn't have any Chinese factories and actually stands to benefit from tariffs on competing products. He maintains a $53 price target on First Solar shares. Other publicly traded companies in the solar space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), JA Solar (JASO), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE).

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 Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Matthew Niknam saying the company's fundamentals are inflecting but the shares have remained range-bound. 2. Intuit (INTU) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Brad Reback saying he believes its two primary business divisions each have improving competitive dynamics and multiple secular growth drivers. 3. First Solar (FSLR) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Michael Weinstein saying the recent pull back captures potential downside risk from U.S. tariff withdrawal. 4. Helmerich & Payne (HP) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Brad Handler saying the stock's 13% pullback over the past month is unwarranted. 5. Accenture (ACN) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst James Friedman saying he is incrementally more bullish that an ERP modernization cycle is starting.
