Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Amazon.com (AMZN) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at KeyBanc with analyst Edward Yruma saying Amazon is taking a number of operational moves to improve profitability in core retail, which could drive mid-term earnings above current consensus estimates. 2. AT&T (T) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Frank Louthan saying AT&T shares trade at a relative discount and expects shares to be driven by positive earnings growth combined with a strong de-levering story. 3. Colfax (CFX) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays with analyst Julian Mitchell saying he views the company's turnaround story as underappreciated. 4. Rent-A-Center (RCII) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Budd Bugatch citing the trial win regarding the terminated buyout with Vintage Capital and a strong fundamental outlook for the upgrade. 5. Global Net Lease (GNL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at B. Riley FBR with analyst Bryan Maher citing the stock's attractive relative valuation as well as management's acquisition "acumen" for the upgrade to Buy. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Jefferies boosts Rent-A-Center target to $22 after Delaware court ruling
Jefferies analyst Kyle Joseph raised his price target for Rent-A-Center to $22 from $19.50 citing the court ruling removes a legal overhang. The analyst reconsidered Rent-A-Center's valuation following the Delaware Court's ruling that the company validly terminated its merger with Vintage. This eliminates the possibility of Rent-A-Center being taken out at $15, Joseph tells investors in a research note. He believes stand-alone fundamentals justify his new price target but keeps a Hold rating on the name.

MasterCard deal for Vyze may be positive for Curo, Rent-A-Center, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Vincent Caintic said Mastercard's (MA) acquisition of Vyze, which provides a platform that links retailers with lenders, is a potential positive for Curo Group (CURO) and Rent-A-Center (RCII), whose "Zibby" and AcceptanceNow are part of the Vyze network. The tie-in with Mastercard may provide more loan and lease application flow to both Zibby and AcceptanceNow, said the analyst. Caintic views the news as more mixed for Alliance Data (ADS), stating that he expects Mastercard's relationship to result in more application flow to Vyze partners, but this may take away from flow to Alliance's cards and lessens the importance of the private label platform.
