On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Disney (DIS) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Pivotal Research with analyst Brian Wieser saying the company "has a lot of positive elements" heading into the back half of the year, including a strong film slate, the launch of new direct to consumer over-the-top services, and efforts in support of the close of the Fox (FOXA) transaction. 2. Coca-Cola (KO) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Judy Hong saying she sees an improving organic sales growth outlook, "cleaner base" post-refranchising, and better visibility on its margin and earnings targets. 3. Merck (MRK) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst David Risinger saying the Keytruda+chemo combination showed better than expected results in lung cancer, boosting the company's immuno-oncology lead against Bristol-Myers (BMY). 4. Newell Brands (NWL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Bonnie Herzog saying the stock's setup is good looking forward, with greater potential upside than downside risk over the next 12 months. 5. Twitter (TWTR) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Brian Nowak citing recent advertiser conversations that have continued to be incrementally positive about Twitter's ad business.

Newell Brands upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog upgraded Newell Brands to Outperform and raised her price target for the shares to $33 from $25. The stock's setup is good looking forward, with greater potential upside than downside risk over the next 12 months, Herzog tells investors in a research note. She calls her upgrade more of an event-driven break-up call versus a fundamental improvement call. The analyst's break-up analysis suggests the targeted $10B after-tax proceeds from the planned divestitures could prove conservative. Newell's current valuation is not reflective of its underlying value, Herzog contends.

Newell Brands (NWL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust with analyst William Chappell saying the stock is in "no-man's land" for a few quarters after its decision to increase its asset sale to $10B from $6B without disclosing which assets are sold following its recent agreement with activist shareholder Starboard Value. 2. Macerich (MAC) and Simon Property (SPG) were downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan. 3. Kimco Realty (KIM) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Richard Hill saying he is cautious on REITs in general, but higher quality strips are better positioned to mitigate decelerating growth risks. 4. Range Resources (RRC) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein with analyst Bob Brackett saying he believes gas levered names, particularly those with significant debt loads, are likely to struggle as gas prices compress cash margins. 5.

Mattel (MAT) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at DA Davidson with analyst Linda Bolton Weiser saying while the company underperformed in Q2 as she expected due to the hard 2017 comparisons driven by last year's Cars 3 release and the impact from Toys R Us liquidation, investor belief that the company could be sold is supporting the stock. 3.

Palmer adds that the quarter may be pressured by higher input costs and the reversal of last quarter's Easter timing benefits, but still expects "strong margin acceleration" in the second half of the year on positive comparison from last year because of the 2017 malware incident and better gross margins from lower cocoa prices. The analyst keeps his Outperform rating on Mondelez.

J.M. Smucker risk/reward not positive amid selloff, says Wells Fargo
In a post-earnings research note titled "We'd Abstain From Buying Into Weakness," Wells Fargo analyst John Baumgartner recommends not buying the dip today in shares of J.M. Smucker (SJM). The stock does not offer a positive risk/reward given the "shaky outlooks" for coffee and pet revenue growth in fiscal 2019, Baumgartner tells investors. Further, the analyst thinks Smucker's free cash growth will prove weaker into fiscal 2020 with inflation biased to the upside. For investors seeking free cash flow yield, the analyst prefers Post Holdings (POST). For investors seeking growth, Baumgartner continues to recommend Mondelez (MDLZ). He keeps a Market Perform rating on J.M. Smucker.

The new entry-level camera began shipping in Q2, second half of 2018 margins are expected to rebound back to the high 30% range and stay there in fiscal 2019, and opex levels are coming down materially, Coster tells investors in a post-earnings research note. Sentiment is "rock-bottom for this stock," so GoPro could trade up today, the analyst contends. He's "incrementally constructive" on GoPro shares but keeps a Neutral rating with an $8 price target.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. JEFFERIES UPS RATING, TARGET FOR CHIPOTLE: Jefferies analyst Andy Barish upgraded Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $550 from $400. Barish believes Chipotle is one of the better positioned companies to benefit from the ongoing shift to digital/off-premise. The company's operations are now poised to again handle increased volume and throughput, the analyst contended. Further, he believes new management's plans are "credible" and should help drive results in 2019 and beyond. The analyst called the stock a top mid-cap pick. NOMURA UPGRADES TWITTER TO NEUTRAL: Nomura Instinet analyst Mark Kelley upgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Neutral from Reduce with an unchanged price target of $31. After selling off 27% since the Q2 earnings report on July 27, expectations have been appropriately reset, Kelley told investors. The analyst believes Twitter's investments to clean up the platform will prove a longer term positive and lead to a more engaged user base. BARCLAYS PREFERS DEERE TO CATERPILLAR: Barclays analyst Adam Seiden downgraded Caterpillar (CAT) to Equal Weight from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $155 from $170. The company's largest end-markets are no longer at trough, and the analyst believes Caterpillar's second half of 2018 price initiatives, directed towards offsetting supply chain and materials cost increases, will limit its ability to expand margins. The analyst prefers shares of Deere (DE) and CNH Industrial (CNH), which he says are at similar valuations but are earlier in their market cycles. CITI SAYS SELL WISDOMTREE: Citi analyst William Katz placed a low probability on Franklin Resources (BEN) acquiring WisdomTree (WETF), and downgraded WisdomTree to Sell, lowering his price target for the shares to $7 from $10. The analyst downgraded the shares to Neutral on July 13. Katz believes WisdomTree's price-to-earnings multiple can further contract amid mixed flow dynamics and flat earnings growth prospects out to 2020. JPMORGAN SAYS GOPRO MAY SEE SHORT SQUEEZE: JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster believes "muted" expectations and elevated short-interest could position GoPro (GPRO) shares for a "short squeeze" rally after the company's Q2 results. The analyst expects the company to post an in-line quarter. GoPro must entice existing users to upgrade to a new flagship camera expected to be released in early Q4, and convert new users for a product category that "feels a bit long in the tooth now," Coster said. He lowered his price target for GoPro shares to $7 from $8 and kept a Neutral rating on GoPro.

Morgan Stanley suggests getting more defensive, downgrades Tech to underweight
Morgan Stanley equity strategist Michael Wilson believes the S&P 500 could trade to 2,800-2,825 in the "very near-term," but is recommending investors use such a move higher to reduce portfolio beta and risk as he continues to expect an "aggressive rotation" toward defensive sectors at some point. Given his view of a growing probability for sustained defensive leadership, Wilson downgraded Small caps to equal weight and Technology to underweight. He also upgraded Consumer Staples and Telecom Services to equal weight from underweight.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. VERTICAL GROUP RAISES SNAP RATING: Vertical Group analyst Phil Leggiere upgraded Snap (SNAP) to Mixed from Negative citing expectations for strong second half 2018 spending. Snap is higher by over 1% in late morning trading. PIVOTAL CUTS SPOTIFY TO HOLD: Pivotal Research analyst Jeffrey Wlodarczak downgraded Spotify (SPOT) to Hold from Buy with an unchanged price target of $200. The analyst cited valuation for the downgrade, given the "material rise" in the shares since his initiation report on May 29. Further, he increasingly views consensus 2018 premium monthly active user growth expectations as too aggressive. He lowered his Q2 premium subscriber MAU estimate from 6M to 5.5M, versus the consensus at 7M. Spotify's current valuation is fair and does not leave a lot of room for "operational/market hiccups," Wlodarczak told investors. DEUTSCHE SEES AMERITRADE/E-TRADE MERGER MAKING SENSE: Deutsche Bank analyst Brian Bedell continues to see a merger between TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and E-Trade (ETFC) as making strategic and financial sense. With TD Ameritrade's integration of recently acquired Scottrade progressing better than expectations, a merger scenario with E-Trade is "becoming more compelling," Bedell told investors. He updated his merger scenario model, raising his hypothetical merger scenario value of E-Trade from TD Ameritrade's perspective to $77 from $72, nearly a 30% premium to the current share price. Bedell raised his price target for TD Ameritrade to $77 from $72 and for E-Trade to $72 from $70. He kept Buy ratings on both stocks. GORDON HASKETT UPGRADES TARGET, DOWNGRADES WALMART: Gordon Haskett analyst Chuck Grom upgraded Target (TGT) to Accumulate from Hold and raised his price target on shares to $86 from 74 to reflect the recent acceleration in traffic. Grom said geolocation data and proprietary card data support his Q2 4.5% comp growth estimate. Grom also downgraded Walmart (WMT) to Hold from Accumulate and lowered its price target to $92 from $98. Grom thinks there are few near-term catalysts on the horizon and said the margin outlook is not as transparent following a period of improvement and stabilization. He expects Walmart shares to be range bound for the balance of the year.

In a research note to investors, Pachter says that despite improvements in programmic, he feels that Snapchat is one of the most difficult-to-use social platforms for advertisers and its economic losses are likely to exceed $1B in 2018, with no clear path to profitability. Though he acknowledges that the company's 191 million DAUs have value and could drive profits if management chooses to focus on profitability, Snap continues to focus on improving the utility of its app, increasing user engagement, and explaining its value proposition to advertisers. Pachter is confident that Snap will turn the corner eventually, but he advises investors to remain on the sidelines until there is evidence of a turnaround.

While the higher fees will help Etsy invest to attract new buyers, increase marketing and enhance support, Nowak believes the stock's current valuation relative to growth is already pricing in execution and return on these investments, he tells investors. Nowak is reviewing his estimates for Etsy, but currently has an Underweight rating on the stock.

Stifel says Applied, Lam to be beneficiaries of NAND capital intensity step-up
Ahead of this week's upcoming Flash Memory Summit, Patrick Ho shared his view of how he expects capital intensity trends continue to increase as the NAND industry moves to 96 layers and above over the next few years. From a stocks perspective, he believes the biggest beneficiaries of the step-up will remain Applied Materials (AMAT) and Lam Research (LRCX), while also noting that MKS Instruments (MKSI) can benefit from its leadership position in many areas where it supplies both Applied and Lam. Stating that he supports Ho's view on the memory industry's increasing capital intensity, Stifel analyst Kevin Cassidy said in his own note to investors that he expects FMS conference keynotes to discuss the expanding markets for NAND Flash pushing total revenue and profits up despite the industry's increasing capital expenditures driving average selling prices lower. Cassidy also noted the first ever MRAM Developers Day will be held Monday, August 6, stating that he views this as significant for expanding the MRAM eco-system led by Everspin (MRAM). Other NAND Flash names Cassidy has previously been positive about include Micron (MU) and Smart Global (SGH).

Boeing, Tesla, Nvidia make Morgan Stanley 'key man risk' list
Morgan Stanley equity strategist Mark Savino noted that about 12% of CEO jobs among S&P 500 companies turned over in 2017, noting that this was the highest level of CEO departures since before the financial crisis. The 59 stocks of S&P 500 companies that had CEOs depart in 2017 underperformed the market by 11% over the next 12 months, or since the departure for instances that were less than 12 months ago, noted Savino. In cooperation with the firm's U.S. analysts, Savino and his team identified the companies in each sector they believe face the greatest level of "key man risk," which includes: Boeing (BA), Tesla (TSLA), ADT Inc. (ADT), Moody's (MCO), TransUnion (TRU), Arista Networks (ANET), Church & Dwight (CHD), Coca-Cola (KO), Monster Beverage (MNST), Coupa Software (COUP), Salesforce (CRM), FireEye (FEYE), MongoDB (MDB), Microsoft (MSFT), New Relic (NEWR), XPO Logistics (XPO), Hilton (HLT), Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Best Buy (BBY), Ulta (ULTA), Aflac (AFL), Athene Holding (ATH), Lincoln National (LNC), Arthur J.

Square investments could limit near-term upside, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette said strength in Square's Subscription/Services revenue was key to revenue upside in Q2 and he sees this momentum as likely to continue in the near-term. However, he also believes the market may be over valuing "certain pieces," such as Instant Deposit and Square Capital. The company's upfront investment to pursue new and expanded opportunities could limit the stock's upside in the near-term, said Faucette, who keeps an Equal Weight rating and $75 price target on Square shares.
