PetIQ in the process of building credibility among investors, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Brian Nagel told investors in a research note that he came away from a recent meeting with PetIQ CEO Cord Christensen and VIP Petcare CEO Will Santana "incrementally positive." He said the company, which in the short time since its July 2017 IPO has amounted to "one of the more controversial stories among smaller cap consumer positives," is in the process of building credibility among investors and this process takes time. His Outperform rating and $28 price target reflects his intermediate to longer-term confidence in the PetIQ model and senior management, he said.

For one, Teva management said they expect the North American generics environment to remain challenging. Additionally, Copaxone sales were relatively flat sequentially, which would be a negative for Mylan if expectations are for increased contribution from Mylan's Copaxone generic in Q2. Mylan has a large pipeline of biosimilars and Teva mentioned it is building a facility for biosimilars in Germany, which indicates more competition, added Maris, who keeps a Market Perform rating on Mylan shares.

Nomura rolls out Analog Semi coverage, names ON top pick
Nomura Instinet analyst Krysten Sciacca last night rolled out coverage on Analog Semiconductors. The analyst expects the group to outperform throughout the remainder of 2018 given its "steadier business models" versus other semi sectors, "strong" free cash flow generation and the "strong" demand coming from the auto and industrial applications. Her top pick is ON Semiconductor (ON), which the analyst initiated with a Buy rating and $30 price target. ON currently trades at a 35% discount to the Analog group, but its multiple should expand as investors come to better appreciate the company's exposure to industrial and auto, Sciacca told investors in a research note. She believes the company's 2020 target model will likely prove conservative. Sciacca also initiated coverage of Microchip (MCHP) with a Buy rating and $110 price target. The stock currently trades at a 22% discount to the comp group, but its "aggressive" de-leveraging, market share gains, and "strong" executional track record warrant the stock returning to its historical five-year average premium of 2%, the analyst contends. She initiated Cree (CREE) with a Hold rating and $44 price target saying the stock is already pricing in tailwinds and assumed coverage of Analog Devices (ADI) with a Neutral rating and $100 price target.

ViewRay initiated with a Buy at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Anthony Petrone started ViewRay with a Buy rating and $12 price target. The analyst believes the company is best positioned to capture early MR-linac adoption given its first mover advantage and growing body of clinical evidence. He believes ViewRay's MRIdian has competitive advantages over Elekta's MR-linac system.

Carrizo Oil & Gas price target raised to $33 from $30 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Dan McSpirit raised his price target on Carrizo Oil to $33 and kept his Outperform rating. The analyst cites the company's relatively lower exposure to the "takeaway tension" in the Permian basin, saying that while the re-rating of the shares is already under way, more upside can be expected from Carrizo's favorable basin differential and its less flow-challenged Eagle Ford operations.

Carrizo Oil & Gas price target lowered to $34 from $44 at Stifel
Stifel analyst Michael Scialla lowered his Net Asset Value, or NAV, for Carrizo Oil & Gas by 22% as he disaggregated the company's Delaware Basin position into three core operating areas and he also modestly lowered his Wolfcamp A/B type curve. Given the adjustments to his model, Scialla lowered his price target on Carrizo shares to $34 from $44. He keeps a Buy rating on the name, calling the company one of the few mid-cap companies he covers with material exposure to the Eagle Ford, where he believes oil prices could sustain a meaningful advantage over WTI and Midland prices for the next two years.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Darden (DRI) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with Jake Bartlett citing his view that its multiple will expand with modest comp sales outperformance beyond fiscal 2018, accelerating unit growth, resumed acquisitions and a higher dividend. 2. Wingstop (WING) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Nick Setyan saying he believes drivers of same store sales growth and margin upside relative to current consensus 2018 and 2019 estimates exist. 3. LabCorp (LH) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc with analyst Donald Hooker saying he sees LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics (DGX) benefiting over time from their recent contracts with United Healthcare (UNH) and Aetna (AET). 4. Carrizo Oil & Gas (CRZO) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Tudor Pickering. 5. Canadian Solar (CSIQ) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Paul Coster saying risks from China's new solar policy appear priced in the shares at current levels.
