Overweight
Tivity Health deal 'in the best interest' of shareholders, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Wiedland notes that Tivity Health (TVTY) shares are down over 30% in a "harsh" reaction to the news that the company will buy Nutrisystem (NTRI) for $1.3B, or $47 per share. In a research note to investors, Wiedland, who reiterates an Overweight rating and $44 price target on Tivity, says he is "intrigued" by the potential revenue synergies to both businesses, and, despite the selloff, believes that the combination is in the best interest of individuals struggling with health and well-being, and ultimately in the best interests of shareholders.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Nutrisystem (NTRI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Barrington and to Neutral from Underperform at DA Davidson. 2. SeaWorld (SEAS) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc with analyst Brett Andress saying de-risked expectations following the Q3 pre-announcement create an attractive entry point, as he sees further upside to shares, with his confidence in the company's turnaround bolstered by additional evidence of both a brand and business in recovery mode. 3. Sanofi (SNY) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays with analyst Emmanuel Papadakis saying he sees a more balanced risk/reward profile at current share levels. 4. Asur (ASR) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Fernando Abdalla citing valuation. 5. Wex (WEX) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Neutral
Nutrisystem upgraded to Neutral at DA Davidson on reduced cost outlook
As reported earlier, DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser upgraded Nutrisystem to Neutral from Underperform and raised her price target to $36 from $27 after its Q3 results. The analyst notes that while the company lowered the midpoint of its 2018 EBITDA guidance range, it anticipates an EBITDA growth of up to 33% in Q4 through lower marketing and G&A expense costs. Weiser adds that her downgrade on October 15th reflected "continuing steep price discounts to reactivation customers and potential weakening of South Beach performance", but at this time, she sees no other near-term catalyst that would justify expectations of further multiple contraction.

Overweight
Tivity Health shares remain attractive, says Cantor Fitzgerald
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Steven Halper reiterates an Overweight rating on Tivity Health (TVTY) with a $49 price target saying the shares at current levels remain attractive. With its Q3 results, Tivity provided positive commentary regarding its efforts to increase enrollment, Halper tells investors in a research note. He believes the shares are attractive even with the pending loss of the remaining UnitedHealth (UNH) business.

Overweight
Tivity Health core business remains on track, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Wieland says Tivity Health's core business, SilverSneakers, grew in-line with expectations in Q3 despite an unfavorable mix shift of visits under the "visits included" model. Flip50 and Prime did not deliver on their targets, resulting in a guidance reduction that was by and large factored into consensus estimates already, Wieland tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The analyst is encouraged that the core business remains on track and sees an improved balance sheet driven by the "strong" free cash flow, which he says positions the company well for strategic opportunities. Wieland raised his price target for Tivity Health to $44 from $43 and reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares.

Outperform
Tivity Health risk/reward attractive at current levels, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Ryan Daniels attributes the "fairly lackluster" stock performance of Tivity Health (TVTY) to continued worries regarding UnitedHealth's (UNH) decision to insource more senior fitness plans to its own proprietary offering. Still, United will work with Tivity's SilverSneakers program in 28 states for individuals and will offer SilverSneakers to Medicare Advantage group members in all 50 states, Daniels tells investors in a research note. As open enrollment begins for the 2019 Medicare Advantage season, the analyst believes it also is an "opportune time to take a fresh look at Tivity Health." He views the stock's current risk/reward as attractive and keeps an Outperform rating on the name.
