On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. HD Supply (HDS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Keith Hughes saying the current valuation on the stock is too low at 10.7-times enterprise value to EBITDA, with his new price target taking that valuation to the upper middle of the distribution group range. 2. Viacom (VIAB) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Needham with analyst Laura Martin saying the stock's forward PE valuation at 8.2-times is 15%-30% below peers mainly due to Paramount's losses. 3. Akamai (AKAM) upgraded to Sector Weight from Underweight at KeyBanc with analyst Brandon Nispel saying Akamai's ability to expand margins is greater than he anticipated and that fears surrounding growth are "unlikely to come to fruition near term." 4. Aon plc (AON) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs while Willis Towers Watson (WLTW) was upgraded to Neutral from Sell. 5. Exxon Mobil (XOM) upgraded to Buy from Reduce at HSBC.

Aon plc initiated with a Neutral at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Michael Zaremski started Aon plc with a Neutral rating and $154 price target. The analyst's positive view of the insurance brokerage space driven by increasing pricing power, a stable positive-territory P&C pricing outlook, demand for consulting services and an incremental investment income tailwind leads him to forecast Aon posting 10%-11% EPS growth for the foreseeable future. However, despite the positive backdrop, his EPS estimates still fall slightly below the consensus forecasts.
