Facebook added to Stifel Select List, Amazon removed
Stifel analyst Scott Devitt replaced Amazon (AMZN) with Facebook (FB) on the Stifel Select List, citing the strong year-to-date performance of Amazon shares, which he still likes and keeps a Buy rating upon. He believes Facebook expectations, and the shares, are appropriately set to allow for longer-term outperformance given the material reset that followed the company's "painful" Q2 update, Devitt tells investors. He maintains a Buy rating and $202 price target on Facebook.

Applied Optoelectronics price target raised to $28 from $20 at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Richard Shannon raised his price target for Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI) to $28 from $20 following a "strong" Q2 result, driven by strong upside from Data Center, specifically Facebook (FB). The analyst thinks most of the upside was from lack of supply from a competitor he believes to be Intel (INTC). He reiterates a Sell rating on Applied Optoelectronics shares.

Match Group price target raised to $52 from $45 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon raised his price target on Match Group (MTCH) to $52 after its Q2 earnings beat and raised FY18 guidance, saying its Tinder platform continues to exceed expectations while the rest of the portfolio shows stability. Salmon adds that Tinder's subscription growth and pricing power position Match Group as a "sustainable long-term" story within the expanding total addressable market, even as the entry of Facebook (FB) into the online dating industry gets closes. The analyst keeps his Outperform rating on Match Group.

Booking Holdings downgraded to Hold on slowing growth at Stifel
As previously reported, Stifel analyst Scott Devitt downgraded Booking Holdings (BKNG) to Hold from Buy, citing the slowing growth at the company-formerly-known-as Priceline. Devitt lowered his core bookings growth expectations in 2018 and beyond following the company's Q2 earnings report and cut his price target on Booking shares to $2,150 from $2,332. He sees better large cap opportunities at company's with similar earnings multiples and better growth, such as Alibaba (BABA), Alphabet (GOOGL) and Facebook (FB), Devitt added.

Nomura upgrades Twitter to Neutral on reset expectations
Nomura Instinet analyst Mark Kelley upgraded Twitter to Neutral from Reduce with an unchanged price target of $31. The stock closed yesterday down 8%, or $2.74, to $31.38. After selling off 27% since the Q2 earnings report on July 27, expectations have been appropriately reset, Kelley tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes Twitter's investments to clean up the platform will prove a longer term positive and lead to a more engaged user base. Further, he expects improving ad formats will drive advertiser retention and possibly growth over time.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Twitter (TWTR) upgraded to Neutral from Reduce at Nomura Instinet analyst Mark Kelley saying after selling off 27% since the Q2 earnings report on July 27, expectations have been appropriately reset. 2. Chipotle (CMG) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Andy Barish saying he believes Chipotle is one of the better positioned companies to benefit from the ongoing shift to digital/off-premise. 3. Affiliated Managers (AMG) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette with analyst Robert Lee saying he believes the company is positioned for "at least" modest organic growth. 4. Booz Allen (BAH) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Brian Gesuale saying the Q1 report was "stellar," beating every key metric, while the share reaction was "lukewarm." 5. Northrop Grumman (NOC) upgraded to Buy on valuation at Buckingham with analyst Richard Safran saying the sell-off following the Q2 report provides an investment opportunity telling investors Defense spending and recent program wins may not be fully reflected in consensus expectations.

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. JEFFERIES UPS RATING, TARGET FOR CHIPOTLE: Jefferies analyst Andy Barish upgraded Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target for the shares to $550 from $400. Barish believes Chipotle is one of the better positioned companies to benefit from the ongoing shift to digital/off-premise. The company's operations are now poised to again handle increased volume and throughput, the analyst contended. Further, he believes new management's plans are "credible" and should help drive results in 2019 and beyond. The analyst called the stock a top mid-cap pick. NOMURA UPGRADES TWITTER TO NEUTRAL: Nomura Instinet analyst Mark Kelley upgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Neutral from Reduce with an unchanged price target of $31. After selling off 27% since the Q2 earnings report on July 27, expectations have been appropriately reset, Kelley told investors. The analyst believes Twitter's investments to clean up the platform will prove a longer term positive and lead to a more engaged user base. BARCLAYS PREFERS DEERE TO CATERPILLAR: Barclays analyst Adam Seiden downgraded Caterpillar (CAT) to Equal Weight from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $155 from $170. The company's largest end-markets are no longer at trough, and the analyst believes Caterpillar's second half of 2018 price initiatives, directed towards offsetting supply chain and materials cost increases, will limit its ability to expand margins. The analyst prefers shares of Deere (DE) and CNH Industrial (CNH), which he says are at similar valuations but are earlier in their market cycles. CITI SAYS SELL WISDOMTREE: Citi analyst William Katz placed a low probability on Franklin Resources (BEN) acquiring WisdomTree (WETF), and downgraded WisdomTree to Sell, lowering his price target for the shares to $7 from $10. The analyst downgraded the shares to Neutral on July 13. Katz believes WisdomTree's price-to-earnings multiple can further contract amid mixed flow dynamics and flat earnings growth prospects out to 2020. JPMORGAN SAYS GOPRO MAY SEE SHORT SQUEEZE: JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster believes "muted" expectations and elevated short-interest could position GoPro (GPRO) shares for a "short squeeze" rally after the company's Q2 results. The analyst expects the company to post an in-line quarter. GoPro must entice existing users to upgrade to a new flagship camera expected to be released in early Q4, and convert new users for a product category that "feels a bit long in the tooth now," Coster said. He lowered his price target for GoPro shares to $7 from $8 and kept a Neutral rating on GoPro.
