Comcast upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities
Atlantic Equities analyst Hamilton Faber upgraded Comcast to Overweight from Neutral and raised his price target on the shares to $42 from $34 as he believes "the bulk of the M&A storm" has passed. The analyst notes that Comcast has pulled out of the race for Fox (FOXA), he now sees a plan B for NBCU and broadband trends have improved dramatically as the company embraces standalone services while mobile is also seeing excellent traction.

Comcast (CMCSA) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities with analyst Hamilton Faber saying he believes "the bulk of the M&A storm" has passed. 2.

Square (SQ) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Buckingham with analyst Chris Brendler saying the Q2 strong results reduced his concerns about high valuation and competition and said there is no reason why Square will not continue to report better-then-expected core revenue growth into 2020. 4. Parker-Hannifin (PH) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst David Raso saying the company's recent operational struggles are behind it with this quarters report and views 2019 guidance as conservative. 5.

Pullback in Macau gaming names a buying opportunity, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Thomas Allen believes the recent selloff in Macau gaming stocks is overdone, as he contends the fact that Macau's gaming revenue growth has missed on the headline for two months in a row is attributable to rising expectations, foreign exchange impacts and likely an improper factoring in of seasonality and the World Cup. Q2 gross gaming revenue growth of 17.2% still beat his forecast of 16%, noted Allen, who said Las Vegas Sands (LVS) continues to be his favored gaming name. He also has an Overweight rating on MGM Resorts (MGM). Allen keeps an Equal Weight rating on Wynn Resorts (WYNN), but sees the stock becoming increasingly attractive if Macau is still "very healthy," as he suspects.

MGM Resorts forecast lowered at Morgan Stanley to account for Macau share loss
Morgan Stanley analyst Thomas Allen, in his preview of Q2 results for the Gaming names he covers, noted that Macau GGR increased 17% in Q2, which was above his estimate of 16% growth. He also said he expects Las Vegas has had a "relatively good" quarter, noting RevPAR in April-May was up 6% and June has a "relatively easy" comparison. Allen lowered his Q2 consolidated property EBITDA estimate for MGM Resorts (MGM) by 2%, factoring in more share loss at the Peninsula property and worse hold as well as lower MGM Cotai EBITDA, and he lowered his price target on MGM to $38 from $39. He raised his Q2 consolidated property EBITDA estimate for Las Vegas Sands (LVS) by 1% and keeps an $86 price target on the stock. He raised his Q2 property EBITDA view for Wynn (WYNN) by 3% and keeps a $200 price target on its shares. Allen has Overweight ratings on Las Vegas Sands and MGM and an Equal Weight rating on Wynn Resorts.

MGM Resorts should be bought into back half of year, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Joseph Greff recommends buying shares of MGM Resorts heading into the back half of 2018. The stock offers an attractive risk/reward and setup for 2019, Greff tells investors in a research note. The analyst attributes the 10% year-to-date selloff to MGM's lowered 2018 guidance in April, an "uninspiring" investor day in May, and "disappointing" Macau market-wide gross gaming revenue growth in May and June. He believes most of the issues that have caused 2018's underperformance are transitory and that expectations are "reasonably/incredibly low." Greff lowered his price target for MGM shares to $37 from $41 and keeps an Overweight rating on the name.

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.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Papa John's (PZZA) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Stifel with analyst Chris O'Cull saying the outlook for Papa John's is "growing dimmer" after recent media reports indicated a "fraternal corporate culture." 2. Buckeye Partners (BPL) downgraded to Sell from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Tristan Richardson saying the latest negative action by Moody's was "quicker than expected" and may lead to a cut in the company's distribution. 3. Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen with analyst Charles Ryhee saying he views it as poorly positioned in the move toward value-based care and believes the ownership of, rather than a partnership with, an insurance company is necessary to realize the benefits of cost trend improvements. 4. General Electric (GE) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst John Eade saying that despite his expectations of a turnaround, Q2 results were a "step in the opposite direction" suggesting the company will struggle to meet its FY18 guidance. 5.

Deep discount cigarette share gains add to pricing worries, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Pamela Kaufman said the "deep discount" cigarette segment has gained U.S. market share in four out of the last five quarters. Smokers are trading down despite the healthy consumer environment and despite Altria Group's (MO) stepped up spending, noted Kaufman, who added that widening Marlboro price gaps could pressure net pricing realization. The last time Marlboro consistently lost market share in 2011, Altria responded with meaningfully less pricing growth, noted Kaufman. She has an Equal Weight rating and $63 price target on Altria and an Overweight rating and $102 price target on Philip Morris (PM).

The analyst also believes that the stock is attractively valued based on its historical P/E, and price-cash flow multiples.

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. VF CORP DOUBLE UPGRADE: BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Robert Ohmes upgraded VF Corp (VFC) to Buy from Underperform and raised his price objective to $96 from $65 ahead of the company's earnings report on July 20, telling investors in a research note that he believes Vans will be a "go-to-brand" for the back-to-school selling season. He said his channel checks indicate accelerating momentum in Vans, especially classic styles, and that the $50-$60 price point is attractive given consumers' shift to value. RAYMOND JAMES DOWNGRADES AT&T: Raymond James downgraded AT&T (T) to Market Perform from Outperform. Analyst Frank Louthan said he views the Department of Justice appeal of the Time Warner case as a negative and said it is a "frustrating delay." Louthan expects the suit to be a "significant overhang" for an extended period of time, which will limit share appreciation, but remains confident AT&T will prevail. AT&T is lower by 2% in late morning trading. STIFEL STARTS GALMED WITH A BUY: Stifel analyst Adam Walsh initiated Galmed (GLMD) with a Buy rating and $35 price target, calling it a "legitimate late-stage NASH play" after Aramchol recently proved itself in a Phase 2 trial as a clearly active and "very safe" compound for treating NASH. Galmed is trading higher by over 17% in late morning trading. MORGAN STANLEY HIKES WWE TARGET TO $100: Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne said that WWE (WWE), by securing rights fees in its new five-year agreements with NBC (CMCSA, CMCSK) and Fox (FOX, FOXA) that are 3.6 times higher than its prior five-year broadcast agreement with NBC, has gained a "massive increase" in earnings power and "extremely high" visibility into the associated revenue. Given the recently announced deals, he raised his price target on WWE shares to $100 from $58 and kept an Overweight rating on the stock. WILLIAM BLAIR CALLS KEMPER PULLBACK 'BUYING OPPORTUNITY': William Blair analyst Adam Klauber said he views shares of Kemper (KMPR) as "even more attractive" after the recent pullback, which he attributes to selling pressures from Infinity Property shareholders receiving Kemper stock. Klauber said Kemper "continues to be our top conviction idea," and kept an Outpeform rating on the name. Kemper is higher by 4.8% in late morning trading.
