Raymond James upgrades Bed Bath & Beyond to Strong Buy on go-private potential
Raymond James analyst Bobby Griffin upgrading Bed Bath & Beyond to Strong Buy from Market Perform following a Wall Street Journal report that a group of shareholders plan to wage a campaign to replace the entire board. He said the report coincides with his view that Bed Bath & Beyond may either no longer be public or be on a journey to go private "within the foreseeable future." Griffin sees feasibility for a going private push or transaction, either through private equity or at the initiation of an activist, and conjectures that the timing of such an event could happen near or soon after Bed Bath's Q4 earnings report, which is scheduled for April 10. The analyst set a $20 price target on Bed Bath & Beyond shares.

Barclays analyst J. David Anderson double upgraded Diamond Offshore Drilling to Overweight from Underweight while lowering his price target for the shares to $12 from $14.

He expects 2019 to be a transition year with 2020 "setting up to be the start of a multi-year growth trajectory." He views shares of Diamond Offshore as undervalued at current levels.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Pfizer (PFE) resumed with a Neutral from Sell at Citi with analyst Andrew Baum saying the recent pullback in the stock, along with the 5%-8% 2019-2021 consensus estimate reductions, gives him the opportunity to close his Sell rating. 2.

Goldman Sachs starts 19 in Oilfield Services, top pick is Baker Hughes
Goldman Sachs analyst Angie Sedita last night initiated coverage of 19 names in the Oilfield Services & Equipment space. The analyst sees three themes: A slow recovery in the offshore markers benefiting both offshore drilling and subsea, U.S. frac activity outpacing land drilling over the near-term, and a a surge of LNG projects moving forward benefiting companies exposed to those trends. Valuations are at the low end of historical ranges, says the analyst, who expects annual earnings growth of 15%-30% through 2021 for the group. Sedita's top pick is Baker Hughes (BHGE), a stock she started with a Conviction Buy rating. Her top Sell is Diamond Offshore (DO). Along with Baker Hughes, the analyst put Buy ratings on Halliburton (HAL), Schlumberger (SLB), Transocean (RIG), TechnipFMC (FTI), Nine Energy Services (NINE) and ProPetro Holding (PUMP). Along with Diamond Offshore, Sedita also put a Sell rating on RPC, Inc. (RES).

Barrington expects Pluto TV to accelerate momentum in key Viacom demographics
Barrington analyst James Goss kept his Outperform rating and $35 price target on Viacom with a positive view of its Pluto TV platform as a component of its direct-to-consumer strategy. The analyst sees the services as an "important link for Viacom in accessing its young target demo" in a form factor "attractive to the user base". While not expected to make a meaningful impact on Q2, Goss adds that Pluto TV offers the "ability to distribute and monetize the cable network group's significant IP portfolio".

Roku downgraded to Neutral after 160% rally off lows at Macquarie
As previously reported, Macquarie analyst Tim Nollen downgraded Roku to Neutral from Outperform following a 162% rise in the stock from its lows since Christmas. He sees the stock's current valuation as full given the rising competition in the ad-supported video on-demand, or AVOD, area from services such as Viacom's (VIAB) Pluto TV, Amazon's (AMZN) ad-supported channels and a potential service expected to be announced by Apple (AAPL) on March 25.

Nvidia to overcome headwinds on turnaround in gaming GPU, says Tigress Financial
Tigress Financial analyst Ivan Feinseth kept his Buy rating on Nvidia, saying the company is expected to overcome its near-term headwinds thanks to the "new data center opportunities along with an expected turnaround in gaming GPUs in the second half of this year". The analyst believes that the recent weakness from macro factors and the drop in demand from crypto mining will turn later this year because of the "growing speed needs in e-sports and ongoing cloud migration", while the demand for notebook GPUs and new Turing GPUs will pick up.

The shares are trading at attractive levels given the company's exposure and market positioning in several secular trends, Kumar tells investors in a research note. Despite recent headwinds, gaming is "primed for growth" in the second half of the year, and should grow year-over-year from its $1.4B run-rate, says the analyst. He also sees the data center and automotive markets as "two long-term secular growth markets." Further, Nvidia has the opportunity for "significant" margin expansion from levels in the most recent quarter, contends Kumar. He likes the stock's setup at current levels.

Beyond reiterating its existing message regarding channel inventory burn timing, Nvidia provided no update to either its Q1 or full year outlook, Seymore tells investors in a research note. However, the analyst is encouraged that Nvidia's Gaming inventory digestion is on plan and that confidence of growth resuming in Data Center remains high.
