Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. ROSENBLATT BOOSTS AMD PRICE TARGET TO STREET HIGH: Rosenblatt analyst Hans Mosesmann raised his price target for AMD (AMD) shares to $30 from $27. Mosesmann's new price target represents the high among Wall Street sell-side analysts. Following the meetings, Mosesmann has renewed conviction in AMD's multi-year double digit growth profile. Further, he's impressed by the analysis investors are doing in the name after years of disregard. AMD is up 4.1% in late morning trading. CANTOR CUTS AETNA TO NEUTRAL: Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Steven Halper downgraded Aetna (AET) to Neutral from Overweight with a price target of $202. The stock now trades at just a 4.6% discount to the implied CVS Health (CVS) acquisition value of about $207 per share, Halper said. He believes the narrowed deal spread reflects an increased likelihood of regulatory approval. Halper cites limited potential upside for his downgrade of Aetna to Neutral. NIELSEN UPGRADED TO NEUTRAL AT GOLDMAN: Goldman Sachs analyst George Tong upgraded Nielsen Holdings (NLSN) to Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $25 from $20. With activist Elliott Management pushing for a sale and increased deal activity in the Information Services sector, Tong sees increased likelihood of Nielsen being involved in a transaction. His upgrade to Neutral and price target increase come after the analyst incorporated a potential takeover into his model. Nielsen is up 3.3% in late morning trading. IMPERIAL SEES SUBSCRIBER UPSIDE FOR NETFLIX: Imperial Capital analyst David Miller believes Netflix's (NFLX) experiment with ending billing through Apple's (AAPL) app store in 33 countries outside the U.S. likely implies upside to its Q3 international subscriber guidance. The analyst said he has a tough time believing that Netflix would "experiment" with billing infrastructure mid-quarter if it did not believe that its international subscriber levels were trending ahead of guidance. As such, Miller raised his Q3 international subscriber estimate to 4.46M from 4.35M. He kept an Outperform rating on Netflix with a $494 price target. TARGET GETS UPGRADE AND DOWNGRADE: Target (TGT) was upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Telsey Advisory, and downgraded to Peer Perform from Outperform at Wolfe Research.

Piper calls IHS Markit, S&P Global top picks in Information Services
Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Appert calls IHS Markit (IHS) and S&P Global (SPGI) his top picks in the Information Services sector. Dun & Bradstreet's (DNB) pending sale to a private equity group and Nielsen's (NLSN) strategic review refocuses investor attention on M&A activity in the sector, Appert tells investors in a research note. He says that while "rich" transaction values provide an "intriguing valuation backstop for the group," he continues to focus on operating fundamentals as the key driver of stock performance.

comScore able to gain 'meaningful share', says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Alan Gould kept his Buy rating and $32 price target on comScore (SCOR), saying the company's latest partnership announcement with E.W. Scripps (SSP) is confirming the management's "financial viability and credibility" relative to Nielsen (NLSN). Gould adds that as the industry evolves from linear to digital video, he sees comScore having the assets to gain meaningful share.
