Viacom downgraded to Neutral on tough AT&T renewal at UBS

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.

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.

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."

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ford (F) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst David Tamberrino saying he views the stock as a "product and self-help story" along with an "attractive" dividend yield. 2. Helmerich & Payne (HP) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at BMO Capital. 3. STMicroelectronics (STM) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at UBS. 4. AB InBev (BUD) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst James Edwardes Jones saying while the company's Q3 results were "disappointing," he believes that shares were also oversold given that the company's "sales growth looks OK relative to the rest of the consumer staples sector." 5. ConocoPhillips (COP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Doug Leggate saying ConocoPhillips' has a favorably leveraged oil portfolio mix which is overlooked by the market and benefits from the 2014 change in the Alaska tax regime.

BofA/Merrill reinstating Oilfield Services coverage with Halliburton as top pick
BofA analyst Chase Mulvehill reinstated coverage of U.S. onshore and diversified oilfield service, or OFS, saying he has a bullish near-to-medium term view on the sector. The analyst notes that OFS should outperform thanks to rising oil prices that should lead to "solid" cash flows across the sector. Mulvehill further anticipates investment to increase across the industry, with North America land E&P spending surprising to the upside and U.S. onshore D&C spending rising nearly 20%. The analyst also sees "Permian pipeline relief" adding to the benefits with exposure to the basin. Mulvehill's Top Pick is Halliburton (HAL), and his other Buy-rated names include Baker Hughes (BHGE), C&J Energy Services (CJ), FTS International (FTSI), Keane Group (FRAC), Nabors Industries (NBR), Nine Energy Service (NINE), Patterson-UTI Energy (PTEN), ProPetro Holdings Corp (PUMP), and Schlumberger (SLB).
