Equal Weight
CBS resumed with an Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne resumed coverage of CBS (CBS) with an Equal Weight rating and $65 price target, stating that he believes continued speculation around a Viacom (VIAB) transaction will prevent shares from reflecting the company's potential strategic value. However, he continues to believe that its assets, strategy and execution have "differentiated it from the pack," Swinburne tells investors. He also resumed coverage of Viacom with an Equal Weight rating.

Equal Weight
Viacom resumed with an Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne resumed coverage of Viacom (VIAB) with an Equal Weight rating and $34 price target, stating that while he is encouraged by new management's revamped strategy and recent personnel decisions, the dual overhangs of upcoming distributor renewals and CBS (CBS) merger speculation may keep the stock range-bound. Swinburne added that he does not expect Viacom to look to sell Paramount, and to his knowledge the company has not indicated it would do so, but he believes the film studio is a "true hidden asset."

In-Line
Viacom upgraded to In-Line from Underperform at Imperial Capital
Imperial Capital analyst David Miller upgraded Viacom to In-Line and raised his price target for the shares to $29 from $25. There is a "palpable rotation at work in the financial markets away from growth and into value within the Media sector," Miller tells investors in a research note after speaking with value-centric portfolio managers. He believes Viacom has many characteristics of a "value moniker," including a low growth rate, a low price/book ratio, and a dividend. Further, Miller thinks the chances of Viacom taking any impairments are low based on its upcoming film slate.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Viacom (VIA, VIAB) upgraded to In-Line from Underperform at Imperial Capital with analyst David Miller saying there is a "palpable rotation at work in the financial markets away from growth and into value within the Media sector." 2. Synopsys (SNPS) and Cadence Design (CDNS) were upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan. 3. Polaris Industries (PII) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley FBR with analyst Eric Wold saying he views yesterday's Q3 results as "solid" and believes the recent stock pullback discounts the risk of tariffs. 4. AMD (AMD) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays while NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) was upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight. 5. Chipotle (CMG) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Maxim with analyst Stephen Anderson saying the company is in an "enviable position" given its nearly all-U.S. exposure and lack of interest rate risk. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
