Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Netflix (NFLX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS, with analyst Eric Sheridan saying that after six months of stock underperformance as key debates emerged about competition, margins and free cash flow, the debates are better understood by investors and reflected in the current stock price. The analyst sees share upside over the near-to-medium term to subscriber growth. Current subscriber metrics such as growth, churn, spend and consumption are tracking inline to better than management's Q4 guidance and commentary. Shares were also upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James. 2. Legg Mason (LM) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill, with analyst Michael Carrier saying flows are holding up better than peers, management is de-leveraging the balance sheet, and expects potential efficiency measures and product approvals to be announced. 3. Viacom (VIAB) upgraded to Outperform from In-Line at Imperial Capital by analyst David Miller, who said now is the time to get constructive given the stock's 13.5% correction over the past 12 weeks. The analyst added that while Viacom's fiscal 2019 film slate does not impress him, its slate for fiscal 2020 looks more promising, highlighted by Gemini Man, G.I. Joe, another Spongebob film, Top Gun, with Tom Cruise reprising his role from the 1986 classic. 4. Colgate-Palmolive (CL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs, with analyst Jason English saying he expects a combination of accelerating organic sales and easing input cost pressures to drive higher profitability. Colgate-Palmolive's valuation will return to the historical premium "that it has enjoyed relative to the HPC sector once its organic sales re-accelerate," he said. 5. Tapestry (TPR) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight and Ralph Lauren (RL) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays by analyst Chethan Mallela. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Viacom upgraded to Outperform from In-Line at Imperial Capital
Imperial Capital analyst David Miller upgraded Viacom (VIAB) to Outperform and raised his price target for the shares to $37 from $30. Now is the time to get constructive given the stock's 13.5% correction over the past 12 weeks, Miller tells investors in a research note. The analyst adds that while Viacom's fiscal 2019 film slate does not impress him, its slate for fiscal 2020 looks more promising, highlighted by Gemini Man, G.I. Joe, another Spongebob film, Top Gun, with Tom Cruise reprising his role from the 1986 classic. He believes the stock's risk/reward now favors long positions.

CBS upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Kyle Evans upgraded CBS to Overweight from Equal Weight as 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. While the threat of a potential Viacom (VIAB) transaction remains, Evans also sees "a decent chance" CBS will become an acquisition target itself as the OTT and streaming video markets become increasingly competitive, he tells investors. Evans keeps a $58 price target on CBS shares.

Lionsgate price target cut to $26, removed from SMID Cap list at Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst David Joyce lowered his price target for Lionsgate to $26 from $31, while reiterating an Outperform rating on the shares given a likely write-off of a recent film release that underperformed expectations and the de-risking in the broader market. The analyst also removed the stock from its firm's SMID Cap Core list as it appears it will take some time for Lionsgate to execute on various fronts in order to prove that Adjusted OIBDA growth is again achievable. Nonetheless, Joyce believes shares have been oversold and are attractive levels for investors with a longer-term view.

Continued insider purchases at Lionsgate 'noteworthy', says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould kept his Buy rating and $29 price target on Lionsgate, saying the continued insider buying by its CFO along with new purchases by chairman Mark Rachesky and Director Gordon Crawford are "noteworthy". The analyst states that while there are no "immediate catalysts" for the stock, the insider buys "reinforce" his view that Lionsgate shares are "quite attractive", with the company "well positioned as a leading content creator in a consolidating media industry with a number of OTT services."
