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. OPCO UPGRADES TESLA TO OUTPERFORM: Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch upgraded Tesla (TSLA) to Outperform from Perform with a price target of $385 following Wednesday night's Q2 results. Gross margin performance on the Model 3 will carry the stock over the next 12-plus months, Rusch said. With higher volumes and slower spending, Tesla has "reached a critical inflection point in its development," the analyst added. He noted that despite some recent price pressure, Model S and X average selling prices have remained at relatively elevated levels. Rusch said he would not be surprised to see a similar scenario play out for the Model 3. SUNTRUST STARTS MAGNOLIA WITH A BUY: SunTrust analyst Neal Dingmann initiated Magnolia Oil & Gas (MGY) with a Buy rating and a price target of $18. The analyst noted that the company is a "unique E&P" with top-tier assets in the Eagle Ford and low leverage on its balance sheet. Dingmann is also positive on Magnolia's strong free cash flow and experience in transactions management. MORGAN STANLEY SAYS FERRARI SELLOFF A BUYING OPPORTUNITY: Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas upgraded Ferrari (RACE) to Equal Weight from Underweight, stating that the stock's 10% selloff presents an opportunity to increase exposure with the stock now reflecting a more balanced assessment of the risks to the 2022 EUR2B EBITDA target. He raised his price target on Ferrari shares to $120 from $110. BARCLAYS CUTS HANESBRANDS: Barclays analyst Chethan Mallela downgraded Hanesbrands (HBI) to Equal Weight and lowered his price target for the shares to $19 from $22. The analyst sees a lack of visibility into the second half of the year following the company's Q2 results. WENDY'S CUT TO NEUTRAL: Kalinowski Equity Research analyst Mark Kalinowski downgraded Wendy's to Neutral from Buy ahead of the Q2 report on August 7. Kalinowski' checks indicate July same-store sales growth is trending below the 1.5% level and were the worst checks since February 2012. As a result, the analyst lowered his Q3 system-wide North American same-store sales growth forecast to a new consensus low of 1.5 from 2.5%. Kalinowski believes McDonald's (MCD) and Burger King, owned by Restaurant Brands (QSR), could become more "assertive" on promotions and discounting, making it difficult for Wendy's to right the ship.

Stephens 'encouraged' to see better momentum in Brinker's traffic trends
Stephens analyst Will Slabaugh maintained an Equal Weight rating and $45 price target on Brinker International (EAT) ahead of the company's earnings report on Tuesday, telling investors that while he is "encouraged" to see better momentum in recent traffic trends, he is keeping the rating until he is more comfortable that recent initiatives are translating into a sustained traffic improvement. The analyst says Restaurant Brands (QSR), Carrols (TST) and Wendy's (WEN) remain his favorite names in quick-service and BJ's Restaurants (BJRI) among casuals.

Zoe's Kitchen 'not immune' to weakness across industry, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Will Slabaugh maintained an Equal Weight rating and $11 price target on Zoe's Kitchen (ZOES) ahead of the company's earnings report on Thursday afternoon, telling investors in a research note that another top-line miss in Q1 and lowered guidance showed that the company is not immune to the general weakness across the industry or within the increasingly competitive fast casual marketplace. While he is optimistic around possible benefits from digital, off-premise and menu innovation, the analyst is concerned that competitive challenges in the fast casual dining sector will weigh on the company's top- and bottom-line int he near-term. The analyst says Restaurant Brands (QSR), Carrols (TST) and Wendy's (WEN) remain his favorite names in quick-service and BJ's Restaurants (BJRI) among casuals.
