Brown & Brown initiated with a Neutral at Credit Suisse

Credit Suisse analyst Michael Zaremski started Brown & Brown with a Neutral rating and $31 price target. Given the company's small commercial focus relative to global peers, he believes demand for consulting services and an incremental investment income tailwind will apply to the insurance brokerage space but not to Brown & Brown, making him relatively less bullish on its near-term prospects, especially given year to date outperformance partially attributable to trade war fears.

Brown & Brown upgraded to Buy at SunTrust on gains in Florida market
As noted earlier, SunTrust analyst Mark Hughes upgraded Brown & Brown to Buy from Hold and raised his price target to $63 from $52. Hughes notes the company stands to benefit from commission gains in the Florida market, contribution from the company's sales incentive program, reduced investments costs, and the anticipated tax reform impact which could add up to 55c to the FY19 EPS target of $2.25. The analyst is especially positive on the Florida market impact, where post-Irma moratorium rolls off after 90 days, leading to property insurance rates going up 5%-20%.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. AIG (AIG) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Deutsche Bank with analyst Joshua Shanker sayign the stock "might have found a bottom" after dropping 8% since the third quarter results on November 2. Brown & Brown (BRO) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Mark Hughes saying the company stands to benefit from commission gains in the Florida market, contribution from the company's sales incentive program, reduced investments costs, and the anticipated tax reform impact which could add up to 55c to the fiscal 2019 earnings per share target of $2.25. 3. L3 Technologies (LLL) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Matt McConnell citing the company's investor day presentation. McConnell says the event highlighted the company's position combining the "best-in-defense runway for operating margin improvement, near-term organic growth acceleration, and bolt-on M&A potential". 4. Carnival (CCL) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Jamie Rollo stating that the firm's survey of U.S. travel agents suggested strong demand for cruises in November, which he notes is usually a slow month for bookings. 5. Express Scripts (ESRX) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Bernstein with the firm citing improved upside risks from potential policy and competitor actions and valuation.
