On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. BorgWarner (BWA) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst David Tamberrino saying he believes the company will outperform supplier peers late in the North American auto cycle. 2. Norfolk Southern (NSC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Christian Wetherbee stating that he sees solid upside to consensus estimates and the potential for multiple appreciation based on "sustainably better" free cash flow. 3. Quest Diagnostics (DGX) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Jack Meehan citing the company's "very favorable" risk-reward profile and current levels. 4. Ciena (CIEN) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Meta Marshall saying recent meetings with management give her confidence that revenue momentum can persist at least for the next year. 5. Microsoft (MSFT) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities with analyst James Cordwell stating the company has successfully managed the cloud transition, while expanding its addressable market, and should now be a primary beneficiary of enterprises undertaking digital transformations. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

CSX upgraded to Buy at Loop Capital on continued operating ratio progress
As reported earlier, Loop Capital analyst Rick Paterson upgraded CSX (CSX) to Buy from Hold and raised his price target to $78 from $65 after the company's Q2 earnings beat. The analyst says CSX is making "continued progress on the adoption of its scheduled operating model", delivering an operating ratio of 59.8% in Q2 vs. 64.7% last year. Paterson adds that CSX has widened its gap relative to regional competitor Norfolk Southern (NSC) thanks to its improved operating efficiency, capturing market share and generating relative growth.

Hold
Norfolk Southern upgraded to Hold from Sell at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Rick Paterson upgraded Norfolk Southern (NSC) to Hold from Sell and raised his price target to $173 from $140 after its Q2 earnings beat, citing improvements in service made in June-July after a poor month of May. The analyst also notes that its "locomotive situation" is also better, but still sees the company's crew as too lean heading into the peak season. Paterson is still concerned that CSX (CSX) is taking market share from Norfolk Southern with operating ratio that's nearly 6 points lower, adding there is also little evidence that the latter can achieve "historically efficient operations" threshold of 24mph from its current 19mph.
