Outperform
T-Mobile upgraded to Outperform at Wells Fargo
As previously reported, Wells Fargo analyst Jennifer Fritzsche upgraded T-Mobile (TMUS) to Outperform from Market Perform and raised her price target on the shares to $77 from $65. Recent conversations with some of his DC contacts have made him more optimistic that a deal to merge with Sprint (S) could be approved. In either scenario, however, the analyst believes T-Mobile's valuation is "quite compelling" at current levels and sees 30% upside with or without Sprint.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades

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.

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.

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%.

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.
