Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Apple (AAPL) upgraded to Neutral from Reduce at New Street with analyst Pierre Ferragu saying the news is as bad as can be and the thesis is "fully played out." 2. Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord with analyst Michael Graham saying revenue growth should continue in the 15-20% range for 2-3 years which coupled with abating margin pressure and share buybacks, should lead to over 15% earnings growth between 2020-2022. 3. First Solar (FSLR) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Brian Lee saying solar stocks underperformed in 2018 as tariffs, China policy and oversupply drove a cyclical correction. 4. Stryker (SYK) upgraded to Outperform at Evercore ISI with analyst Ross Muken saying 2019 guidance has been de-risked following management commentary and said recent macro survey work suggests 7% organic growth is achievable. 5. Waters (WAT) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Derik de Bruin citing an aggressive share buyback program that offers earnings support. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Alphabet upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Michael Graham upgraded Alphabet (GOOG; GOOGL) to Buy from Hold. The analyst said revenue growth should continue in the 15-20% range for 2-3 years which coupled with abating margin pressure and share buybacks, should lead to over 15% earnings growth between 2020-2022. He also believes competitive risks from Amazon (AMZN) are manageable and considers the stock to be the most defensive of the FANG group given its steady performance and reasonable valuation. Graham raised his price target to $1,250 from $1,140 on Alphabet shares.

Baird names Amazon, Alphabet among best internet stocks to own for rebound
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian pointed out in a note to investors before the open that the number of searches on Google for the term "recession" has more than doubled since October, hitting a recent peak in early December. However, he thinks it is reasonable to consider a more optimistic outcome, namely a rebound, and looked back at the past four market "corrections" to see which stocks in large-cap internet fared. In each of the six-month periods he analyzed, Activision (ATVI), Facebook (FB) and Alphabet (GOOGL) traded higher with the lowest standard deviations in the group, Sebastian noted, adding that he thinks lingering overhangs on Facebook shares could dampen its recovery this time around. Amazon (AMZN) was the best overall performer, while eBay (EBAY) was the laggard, each with higher standard deviations, Sebastian added. Overall, he named Activision, Alphabet and Amazon as his "AAA" best bets in a rebound scenario.

Google's growth in hardware has significant strategic benefits, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney said that while Google "remains overwhelmingly" an advertising revenue company, it also has made hardware development and innovation a bigger strategic and engineering focus over the past few years. The result has been a relatively impressive slate of products and he believes the growing hardware segment has also generated significant strategic benefits, including increased ad monetization opportunities and a platform to develop and deploy AI advancements, Mahaney tells investors. Following his hardware deep dive, he reiterates an Outperform rating and $1,400 price target on shares of Google parent Alphabet.

Piper Jaffray says Apple's iOS retains dominant mobile platform position
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson kept his Overweight rating and $187 price target on Apple after conducing an annual survey of CIOs from over 10 industries. The analyst notes that the survey gauged the reach of mobile platforms and devices supported and deployed, and the findings indicate that the iOS still hold a "dominant share of mobile platforms supported and devices provided". Olson adds that Apple's iOS and Microsoft's (MSFT) Windows "actually gained ground" relative to last year, while Android (GOOGL) lost market share.
