Petrobras price target raised to $13.50 from $11 at Societe Generale
Societe Generale analyst John Herrlin raised his price target on Petrobras to $13.50 from $11.00 after its Q2 results were operationally better than he had expected.

Barclays downgrades Hess to Underweight on 'steepest' group premium
Barclays analyst Paul Cheng downgraded Hess Corp. (HES) to Underweight from Equal Weight while raising his price target for the shares to $66 from $55. The analyst says his analysis indicates Hess trades at the "steepest premium" in the group. His Guyana estimate would need to move 75%-100% higher for Hess to trade in-line with large-cap Exploration and Production companies. Cheng replaced Cenovus Energy (CVE) with ConocoPhillips (COP) as his top pick following the stock's strong share performance. He also double upgraded Petrobras (PBR) Overweight from Underweight, upgraded Husky Energy (HUSKF) to Overweight and Imperial Oil (IMO) to Equal Weight. The analyst thinks Hess and Exxon Mobil (XOM) offer the least value over the next 12 months.

Petrobras upgraded to Overweight from Underweight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Paul Cheng double upgraded Paul Y. Cheng to Overweight from Underweight with an unchanged price target of $14. The company's steep valuation discount "more than outweighs the underlying political risk," Cheng tells investors in a research note.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. UMC (UMC) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Bernstein with analyst Mark Li saying he believes the company will deliver a better capital return. 2. Petrobras (PBR) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Raymond James with analyst Pavel Molchanov saying the government's "dramatic intervention" in late May to slash diesel prices in response to a national trucker strike is largely reflected in valuation. 3. Apache (APA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Bill Selesky citing the impact of rising crude oil prices as well as the management's strategy of allocating nearly 70% of its FY18 capital spending program to production in the Permian basin. 4. Match Group (MTCH) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Brent Thill saying a survey of 600 online daters shows many users do not wish to commingle dating with social media. 5. First Data (FDC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst James Schneider saying despite "choppy" fundamentals, the company's revenue growth is poised to improve.
