KB Home upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna
As previously reported, Susquehanna analyst Jack Micenko upgraded KB Home to Positive from Neutral and raised his price target to $36 from $34. In a research note to investors, Micenko cited a "clear and visible path" to further gross margin expansion and re-acceleration in community count and order growth well into 2019 for the upgrade, adding that underlying housing trends are strong in many of the markets in which the company currently operates despite "cautious" macro sentiment.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. CarMax (KMX) upgraded two notches to Overweight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Armintas Sinkevicius saying longer term, he is constructive on dealers, citing a belief that tech disruption could accelerate consolidation and set up a transition toward "megafleet managers." 2. Cummins (CMI) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Michael Baudendistel saying shares of truck equipment companies have been under pressure primarily on concerns that the cycle is at a peak. 3. Wynn Resorts (WYNN) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Steven Wieczynski saying he believes the pullback in the stock recently has created a compelling opportunity. 4. KB Home (KBH) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst Jack Micenko citing a "clear and visible path" to further gross margin expansion and re-acceleration in community count and order growth well into 2019 for the upgrade, adding that underlying housing trends are strong in many of the markets in which the company currently operates despite "cautious" macro sentiment. 5. Quest Diagnostics (DGX) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst Ross Muken saying the company will likely be the beneficiary of improved volumes, stable pricing, heightened M&A, and fund flows amid the heightened volatility within the Rx supply chain.
