Verizon says Bay, Gulf counties customers to be credited 3 months of service

Verizon said that it is 100% focused on repairing its network in the Florida Panhandle. "We are making progress every hour, and we expect that trend to continue at a rapid pace," the company said.

This free service is for both consumer and business accounts."

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Facebook (FB) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at MoffettNathanson with analyst Michael Nathanson saying he believes the shift in engagement and monetization from News Feed to Stories will be a headwind to revenue growth. 2. Verizon (VZ) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays and to Neutral from Buy at MoffettNathanson. 3. Dollar Tree (DLTR) downgraded to Outperform from Top Pick at RBC Capital with analyst Scot Ciccarelli citing continued struggles at its Family Dollar business of 3 consecutive quarters of disappointing results, weighing on the company's profitability. 4. Seagate (STX) downgraded to Underperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst C.J. Muse citing peaking margins and HDD secular headwinds. 5. Signet Jewelers (SIG) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst Paul Lejuez saying while the company's Q2 sales were better than expected with overall comps of up 1.7%, the underlying fundamentals do not suggest that business is healthy. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

AT&T upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS
UBS analyst John Hodulik upgraded AT&T (T) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $38 from $33. The shares closed yesterday up 7c to $33.44. The stock is trading near all-time low valuations, and at its widest valuation gap to Verizon Communicators (VZ), given a mix of EBITDA declines, concerns over the debt load and secular issues impacting the space, Hodulik tells investors in a research note. Further, the Time Warner transaction and accounting changes "have compounded these issues, leading to a loss of visibility for investors," the analyst adds. However, his work indicates that AT&T will return to EBITDA growth in the second half of 2018, after a 6% decline in the first half, due to growth in Wireless and WarnerMedia as well as slower declines in Entertainment.

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. UBS SAYS BUY AT&T: UBS analyst John Hodulik upgraded AT&T (T) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $38 from $33, noting that the stock is trading near all-time low valuations and at its widest valuation gap to Verizon (VZ). The Time Warner transaction and accounting changes "have compounded [other] issues, leading to a loss of visibility for investors," but his work indicates that AT&T will return to EBITDA growth in the second half of 2018, after a 6% decline in the first half, due to growth in Wireless and WarnerMedia as well as slower declines in Entertainment. JPMORGAN GOES TO BULL FROM BEAR ON NOVAVAX: JPMorgan analyst Eric Joseph double upgraded Novavax (NVAX) to Overweight from Underweight saying the risk/reward is favorable into the report of Prepare trial data in Q1 of 2019. The trial is assessing the efficacy of the company's RSV F Vaccine for infants via maternal immunization and the analyst believes the shares can hit a range of $2.00 to $2.25, he told investors. JPMORGAN SUGGESTS BEING SHORT COPART, LONG KAR: JPMorgan analyst Ryan Brinkman downgraded Copart (CPRT) to Underweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $47 from $48. The company reported softer than expected Q4 results this week but trades at "near record multiples" of earnings and EBITDA, Brinkman told investors. The analyst sees a potential pair trade in going long KAR Auction (KAR) shares, and short Copart shares, to capitalize on the "valuation disconnect." LOOP SETS $8.25 TARGET ON HARMONIC: Loop Capital analyst James Kisner initiated Harmonic (HLIT) with a Buy rating and $8.25 price target, saying he believes Harmonic can "drive robust revenue growth on its Cable Edge business as cable operators like Comcast (CMCSA, CMCSK) adopt its virtual CCAP/CMTS solution," and that the company's video business with stabilize. 'DON'T PANIC' OVER DOD PROPOSAL: Morgan Stanley analyst Rajeev Lalwani attributes the underperformance in Defense stocks over the last two days compared to the broader market to heightened concerns around a month old proposal from the Department of Defense to adjust progress and performance payments down to 50% from 80% of cost, which would effectively slow the timing of cash flow receipts closer to when a project is complete. He sees a number of reasons not to panic, mainly because he believes that the Administration will not move forward with a proposal industry-players will paint as being anti-business and anti-defense spending. Publicly-traded defense contractors include General Dynamics (GD), Huntington Ingalls (HII), L3 Technologies (LLL), Lockheed Martin (LMT), Northrop Grumman (NOC) and Raytheon (RTN).

UBS 'constructive' on Verizon given improving wireless trends
UBS analyst John Hodulik reiterated a Buy rating and $59 price target on Verizon Communications after meeting with CEO Hans Vestberg, outgoing CEO Lowell McAdam and CFO Matt Ellis. The primary focus was 5G and 4 pillars of the investment case, Hodulik tells investors in a research note, adding that management expects 5G mobile devices as early as next year, potentially keeping a lid on near-term industry volumes which is generally beneficial for churn and margins. Hodulik says he remains constructive on shares given improving wireless trends.
