Mining equipment spending estimates raised since August, says OTR Global
OTR Global said earlier that after speaking to 30 mining industry executives from various global regions that miners have ramped up 2018 new equipment spending estimates and more expect 2019 spending increases than in August. New equipment spending in 2018 is now expected to be up 25%-28%, versus August estimates for a year-over-year increase of 18%-21%, said OTR. 2019 spending on new equipment is expected to be up 6%-9% year-over-year, the firm added.

Buy
Caterpillar upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Ross Gilardi upgraded Caterpillar to Buy and increased its price target to $163 from $140 citing attractive valuation as macro risks recede. Gilardi has increased conviction following Fed Chairman Powell's comments last week that were seemingly less hawkish on future interest rate cuts and the temporary cease fire in additional US-China tariff increases. The analyst sees potential for the multiple to recover given strong overall demand trends and opportunities for strong earnings growth in the years to come.

Outperform
Caterpillar elevated to Fresh Pick at Baird
Baird analyst Mig Dobre elevated Caterpillar to Fresh Pick as it is poised to benefit from a combination of continued demand growth into 2019, improved price/cost dynamics, strong seasonal and post mid-term tailwinds, attractive valuation and meaningful capital deployment/buyback potential. Dobre reiterated his Outperform rating and $171 price target on Caterpillar shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. AT&T (T) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen and to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan. 2. Caterpillar (CAT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Ross Gilardi citing attractive valuation as macro risks recede. 3. First Solar (FSLR) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Brian Lee saying the recent underperformance in the stock creates a more favorable risk/reward profile. 4. Stanley Black & Decker (SWK) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst Timothy Wojs saying the delay in the Chinese tariffs will be a net benefit on top of consensus estimates that were already properly reset for tariff and cost headwinds. 5. Roku (ROKU) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at DA Davidson with analyst Tom Forte saying the stock is "attractive" following reports of a 90-day U.S.-China trade truce reached this weekend as it alleviates a "significant near-term risk to shares," since all of the company's products are manufactured in China. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
