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 Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Michael Rollins saying he expects AT&T to further benefit from the "measured" promotional environment in wireless, while improving its competitive position from FirstNet and the marketing of its network enhancements, branded 5G Evolution. 2. Sanofi (SNY) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Peter Welford saying he believes European large-cap pharmaceuticals are entering a period of sustained earnings momentum which should justify valuations above the historic average for the sector. 3.

Argus analyst Jacob Kilstein raised his price target on Simon Property (SPG) to $200 and kept his Buy rating, citing the potential from higher earnings as the company looks to transform its "department store anchor tenants" into more profitable retailers to match the rent paid by its smaller "non-anchor" stores and restaurants. The analyst is also positive on the company's "profitable co-ownership investment in Aeropostale (AROPQ) and the indicated openness by its CEO to close similar "unusual" deals. Kilstein raises his FY18 FFO view on Simon Property by 2c to $12.09, adding that its 14.3-times forward FFO valuation is near the low end of its historical range of 12.3-20.9-times.

Goldman says now the time to own Waste stocks, double upgrades Waste Management
Goldman Sachs analyst Brian Maguire double upgraded Waste Management (WM) to Buy from Sell and raised his price target for the shares to $107 from $84. The analyst also raised his Waste sector view to Attractive from Neutral. Given the age of the current business cycle and expectations for slowing economic growth, now is the right time to own Waste stocks, Maguire tells investors in a research note. The Waste sector not only compounds earnings growth at a higher rate than the overall market, but it does so with much less volatility and drawdowns in its earnings, adds the analyst. He believes the Waste sector that should be a core holding in every portfolio, especially "so late in the economic cycle." The analyst likes shares of Waste Management saying it has the lowest price-to-earnings multiple in the sector and is currently trading at an 11% discount to its primary peer Republic Services Group (RSG). Maguire also reiterates a Buy rating on Waste Connections (WCN) with 21% upside to his new $94 price target. He reiterates a Neutral rating on Republic Services with only 4% upside to his new $79 price target.

The analyst notes that the solid waste sector is very well positioned in the current environment of positive housing starts trends and increasing inflation, benefiting companies like Waste Management and Waste Connections (WCN). Silber adds that Clean Harbors stands to benefit from the accelerated U.S. industrial activity, stating that it is also his preferred choice from additional growth opportunities such as oil recycling and lower valuation.

SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey lowered his price target on Equifax to $115 to reflect the softer sentiment at its competitor's conference last month, saying the company's outlook in early 2019 will likely reset the Street's "aggressive" expectations. The analyst keeps his Buy rating on Equifax however and believes that its long-term model is intact. Jeffrey adds that the company's "valuation discount provides downside protection even in a decelerating US economy."

Comparison of Marriott breach to Equifax a 'much too dire' view, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Joseph Greff believes it is "way too early" to quantify the financial impact to Marriott (MAR) of the company's data breach, which he notes is large in terms of number of guests and "deep" in terms of the types of data - such as passport, credit card and address information - that may have been exposed. Marriot shares appear to be to be pricing in a "sizable permanent impact," given that the roughly 6% pullback implies $130M-$135M in lost net income using its current 2019 P/E multiple, Greff tells investors. His general view is that any damage done to the brand longer-term will likely be minimal, if there is any at all, adding that "consumers are growing somewhat numb to these events." In his conversations today, the "kneejerk comparison" has been to Equifax's (EFX) breach last year, but that comparison "is (much) too dire," Greff believes. He maintains an Overweight rating on Marriott shares.

Barclays upgrades Fair Isaac to Overweight following recent pullback
Barclays analyst Manav Patnaik upgraded Fair Isaac (FICO) to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised his price target for the shares to $225 from $200. The analyst says his constructive view on the stock comes on the back of the recent pullback as well as his appreciation of the company's evolution as a Software name. Patnaik prefers shares of Fair Isaac and TransUnion (TRU) over Equifax (EFX) and Dun & Bradstreet (DNB).

Keefe, wanting to own defensive banks, downgrades Comerica and KeyCorp
Keefe Bruyette analyst Brian Klock expects the narrative in 2019 to shift to "defensive banks that can grow earnings using other levers rather than depending on rates." With that in mind, the analyst downgraded both Comerica (CMA) and KeyCorp (KEY) to Market Perform from Outperform. Comerica's revenue and earnings growth are largely dependent upon future Fed funds hikes, Klock tells investors in a research note. Further, he sees risk to his revenue growth assumptions next year for KeyCorp and does not see 2019 as the year the company's price-to-earnings multiple closes the discount compared to peers. Klock's top overweight picks among the Large Regionals are Citizens Financial (CFG), M&T Bank (MTB), SunTrust (STI) and Zions Bancorp (ZION).
