Scientific Games initiated with a Buy at SunTrust
As noted earlier, SunTrust analyst Barry Jonas initiated Scientific Games with a Buy rating and a price target of $36, saying the investment comes with "high risk but very high rewards". The analyst contends that the company's fundamentals still look sound even though the stock is about 55% off its 52-week highs in response to slowing adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow growth in Q2 as well as a change in the CEO. Jonas believes that "these issues are mostly transitory", anticipating solid demand trends based on his conversations gaming operators. The analyst expects Scientific Games' free cash flow to accelerate next year and the Street to "warm" to new management.

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. CREDIT SUISSE INITIATES CASINO STOCKS: Credit Suisse analyst Cameron McKnight initiated Gaming and Leisure Properties (GLPI), VICI Properties (VICI), and PlayAGS (AGS) with an Outperform, Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Wynn Resorts (WYNN), MGM Growth (MGP), and International Game (IGT) with a Neutral, as well as Scientific Games (SGMS) with an Underperform.

Nielsen was also upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie and to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays. Morgan Stanley analyst Toni Kaplan reiterated an Overweight rating and $26 price target on the stock. NOMURA RAISES PRICE TARGET AFTER SQUARE CASH APP SURPASSED PAYPAL'S VENMO IN JULY: Nomura Instinet analyst Dan Dolev raised his price target for Square (SQ) to $86 from $82 after his firm's July payments app tracker showed cumulative Square Cash App downloads surpassed PayPal's (PYPL) Venmo for the first time.
