Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Bausch Health (BHC) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst David Amsellem saying while he's been "unrelentingly negative" on the company for years, it is time to "turn the page following a closer look at the business." 2. Crocs (CROX) and Shoe Carnival (SCVL) were upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna. 3. Stryker (SYK) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI. 4. CBS (CBS) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens with analyst Kyle Evans saying he believes investor sentiment is poised to improve on the name in 2019 and that the company can continue to post solid results driven by underlying unit growth and stronger pricing. 5. Sirius XM (SIRI) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Sebastiano Petti saying Sirius XM shares are attractively following the 25% pullback from the 2018 highs.

Stryker upgraded to Outperform at Evercore ISI
As previously reported, Evercore ISI upgraded Stryker to Outperform from In Line. Analyst Ross Muken said 2019 guidance has been de-risked following management commentary and said recent macro survey work suggests 7% organic growth is achievable.

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.

Piper calls Wright Medical top 2019 pick in Medical Technology and Devices
After interviewing industry contacts to get a sense of the orthopedic outlook for 2019, Piper Jaffray analyst Matt O'Brien believes the category will be "largely steady" with "solid" volume growth and even more extremities and sports medicine growth. The group as a whole "is cheap" with respect to valuation, which makes us optimistic, O'Brien tells investors in a research note. The analyst's top pick for next year is Wright Medical (WMGI) as he expects the company to continue taking share in healthy extremities end markets and views the stock's current valuation as attractive. For large caps, O'Brien believes Stryker (SYK) will continue to be in a share taking position, "making it a clean story for investors to get behind."

Citi makes four rating changes in Medical Devices, 'warning up' to J&J
Citi analyst Amit Hazan issued his 2019 preview for Medical Devices, which included four rating changes. The analyst upgraded both Zimmer Biomet (ZBH) and Baxter International (BAX) to Buy from Neutral, downgraded Medtronic (MDT) to Neutral from Buy and downgraded Abbott Laboratories (ABT) to Sell from Neutral. He also kept Buy ratings on Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) and Boston Scientific (BSX), but adds he's "relatively more cautious." Further, Hazan kept a Sell rating on Edwards Lifesciences (EW) and says he's "warming up" to Neutral-rated Johnson & Johnson (JNJ). The analyst expects "fairly stable" fundamentals for the group in 2019, with "modest slowdowns" in organic sales and earnings growth.
