On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. General Motors (GM) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Adam Jonas saying he sees room for positive earnings revisions for GM, Ford (F) and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) as investors better understand the impact on U.S. pick-up truck sales from a potential passage of a U.S. infrastructure bill. 2. TD Ameritrade (AMTD) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Michael Carrier saying he views TD Ameritrade's near-term outlook as attractive given healthy new net asset growth, higher interest rates, and strong DARTs. 3. Comerica (CMA) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Peter Winter saying he sees several levers that should drive above average earnings per share growth over the next two years, including margin expansion, potential resumption of loan growth, and above average capital returns. 4. Agilent (A) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Patrick Donnelly saying he sees an attractive fundamental backdrop across Tools. 5. Discover (DFS) and Ally Financial (ALLY) were upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Stephens. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Discover upgraded to Neutral at UBS
As previously reported, UBS analyst Eric Wasserstrom upgraded Discover to Neutral from Sell. He expects provision expense growth to remain elevated, though the earnings impact is mitigated by stronger interchange revenues than he had previously forecasted, said Wasserstrom, who raised his price target to $72 from $70 on Discover shares.
