On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ralph Lauren (RL) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Erinn Murphy, who remains concerned about the sustainability of Ralph Lauren's sales group, saying earnings estimates are likely to continue to grind higher given the company's "sound" cost control and favorable margin mix shift. 2. Caterpillar (CAT) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst Mig Dobre saying he believes demand growth should continue into 2019. 3. Copart (CPRT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Gabelli with analyst Matthew Paige saying he raised his valuation multiple to 15x EBITDA from 12x to reflect the premium he believes the stock deserves relative to KAR Auction Service (KAR) given its EBITDA margin advantage and his view that current market conditions better support the salvage auction business than wholesale. 4. Arcturus Therapeutics (ARCT) upgraded to Strong Buy from Buy at WBB Securities. 5. First BanCorp (FBP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill.

JPMorgan upgrades Ralph Lauren to Overweight on recent pullback
JPMorgan analyst Matthew Boss upgraded Ralph Lauren to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $150 from $145. The recent pullback in the shares creates a "multi-year opportunity," Boss tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees Ralph Lauren's earnings growth profile accelerating to low-teens or a mid-teens total return profile for the next five years versus a 30% decline the past four years. Further, his fieldwork points to the company's North America same-store-sales inflecting positive in Q2 for the first time in three years.

Morgan Stanley ups Newmont to Overweight, cuts Barrick Gold to Underweight
As previously reported, Morgan Stanely analyst Piyush Sood upgraded Newmont Mining (NEM) to Overweight from Equal Weight, stating that its stronger execution, steadier production profile, deeper project pipeline, better reserve life, and lower leverage lead him to prefer its shares over Barrick Gold (ABX). Despite the latter stock having recently underperformed peers, Sood downgraded Barrick Gold to Underweight from Equal Weight after switching to a market valuation from a net asset value for its Tanzania operations. Sood lowered his price target on Barrick shares to $12 from $14 and raised his price target on Newmont shares to $40 from $37.

Neutral
Barrick Gold upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi
Citi analyst Alexander Hacking upgraded Barrick Gold (ABX) to Neutral from Sell but lowered his price target to $11 from $12 as part of his broader research note on North American gold miners. The analyst states that he is still neutral on the sector, even though the risk for the price of gold is now "skewed to the upside", adding that he still prefers copper miners based on their superior growth to free cash flow profile. Hacking states that Barrick Gold is particularly compelling, with the stock price having fallen about 30% and sees little support for the bear case with gold price close to $1,200/oz, adding that the stock may be nearing a bottom and has a potential to outperform if it can "rebuild" investor trust with execution. As part of his research note, the analyst also lowers his price target on Agnico Eagle (AEM) to $38 from $45, Goldcorp (GG) to $14 from $16, and Newmont Mining to $36 from $42.

Morgan Stanley downgrades Cabot Oil to Equal Weight on lower nat gas price view
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Devin McDermott downgraded Cabot Oil & Gas (COG) to Equal Weight from Overweight after lowering his long-term natural gas price forecast to $2.50 from $2.75 and increasing his price assumptions for ethane in late 2018 and 2019. He also lowered his price target on Cabot shares to $23 from $29. U.S. natural gas should soon enter a new cycle of structural oversupply and stagnating demand, contends McDermott. Given that view, and the fact that oil weighted E&Ps trade at similar multiples to nat gas producers, McDermott remains Underweight on nat gas producers Range Resources (RRC), Gulfport Energy (GPOR) and Southwestern Energy (SWN).
