Deutsche sees 23% total return potential in Verizon, upgrades shares to Buy
Deutsche Bank analyst Matthew Niknam upgraded Verizon Communications (VZ) to Buy from Hold with an unchanged price target of $56. The stock closed yesterday down 59c to $47.46. Following a heightened wave of aggressive competitive activity in recent years, wireless fundamentals are "meaningfully improving," Niknam tells investors in a research note. Industry pricing has stabilized, competitive intensity has moderated, and the industry's two biggest disruptors, T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint (S), have announced plans to merge, the analyst contends. He expects Verizon's Q2 results to reflect a return to normalized service revenue growth year-over-year for the first time since late 2014. The analyst also sees "upside optionality" for Verizon shares from 5G and Oath. Despite inflecting fundamentals and this optionality, Verizon continues to trade at a discounted valuation, Niknam says. He sees 18% upside from current share levels along with a 5% dividend yield, representing total return potential of 23%.

Overweight
T-Mobile initiated with an Overweight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Amir Rozwadowski reinstated coverage of T-Mobile (TMUS) with an Overweight rating and $74 price target, telling investors in a research note that while it is difficult to gauge the outcome of the regulatory approval process for the deal between the company and Sprint (S), he thinks T-Mobile's improving cash generation capabilities provide a number of options for investor value creation with or without a deal. The analyst considers T-Mobile the better risk/reward opportunity at current levels.

Equal Weight
Sprint initiated with an Equal Weight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Amir Rozwadowski reinstated coverage of Sprint (S) with an Equal Weight rating and $6 price target, telling investors that while shares should benefit if the proposed deal with T-Mobile (TMUS) is approved, the company's balance sheet and acknowledged need to ramp network investments could strain its financial and competitive flexibility should a deal not come to fruition. Ultimately, Sprint's valuation could see additional pressure if compelled to remain a standalone company, the analyst contends.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Air Transport Services (ATSG) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst David Ross saying shares are attractive at current levels given long-term growth prospects. 2. T-Mobile (TMUS) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Jennifer Fritzsche stating that recent conversations with some of his DC contacts have made him more optimistic that a deal to merge with Sprint (S) could be approved. 3. Talend (TLND) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at with analyst Tyler Radke saying a survey of Chief Data Officers shows "strong spending signals" while the company's competitive backdrop is favorable amid "increasing cloud tailwinds". 4. Regions Financial (RF) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Baird with analyst David George citing the recent pullback, which he thinks has made the valuation more reasonable. 5. Twilio (TWLO) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Jim Kelleher saying the pullback in the stock price has created a more favorable entry point.
