On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Square (SQ) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse WITH analyst Paul Condra saying he believes its growing product eco-system is increasing its ability to penetrate larger merchants, positive data points on Cash-App adoption validate Square's two-sided platform strategy to grow both merchant and consumer use-cases, and growth investing should support strong revenue trends driving upside to revenue forecasts in the out-years. 2. Discovery (DISCA) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Drew Borst saying Discovery's acquisition of Scripps creates "meaningful" cost and revenue synergy opportunities. 3. Grainger (GWW) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at UBS with analyst Steven Winoker saying the company's strategic initiatives, including its pricing reset and e-commerce platform development, reposition it to gain market share through 2019. 4. Hilton (HLT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Berenberg. 5. United Continental (UAL) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Outperform
Grainger price target raised to $400 from $380 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Christopher Glynn raised his price target for Grainger to $400 from $380 following meetings with management. The analyst notes that Grainger continues to improve overall profitability/leverage potential of the system with a more efficient DC network, the smaller branch footprint, and headcount productivity/salesforce efficiency. Pricing, now market-based, supports view of no need to further reduce price baselines, he contends. Glynn reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Oppenheimer analyst Chris Glynn reiterated an Outperform rating on Grainger and raised his price target to $410 from $400. In a research note to investors, Glynn says he sees upside potential in gross margin and continues to believe Grainer's strategic business model and asset base will continue to enable the pivot in fundamentals and enable ongoing share gain at favorable mix, and therefore, stock price appreciation.

Market Perform
Grainger's market-based pricing 'successfully driving sales', says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst R. Scott Graham kept his Market Perform rating and $330 price target on Grainger after hosting a conference call with its management which addressed the company's "pricing, competitive landscape, operating environment, and tariffs". The analyst says the company's U.S. pricing has been reset by the "price transparency brought to the MRO market by Google", adding that its change to market-based pricing is driving sales. Graham also notes that Grainger has built dedicated teams to "understand competitive sets by product group" and another team "working diligently to assess the impact of tariffs on its business".
