Quest, LabCorp upgraded to Buy ahead of UnitedHealth lab network rollout
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut upgraded both Quest Diagnostics (DGX) and Laboratory Corp. of America (LH) to Buy from Hold on the belief that UnitedHealth's (UNH) rollout on July 1 of its preferred lab network will be a positive catalyst for both stocks. Quest and LabCorp's likely inclusion should bolster their organic growth beginning in 2020, Tanquilut tells investors in a research note. The analyst finds both stocks "compelling" with their 2019 outlooks "seemingly de-risked with fairly conservative guidance ranges" and 2020 consensus estimates "looking conservative." Further, Quest's and LabCorp's valuations are at below-historical relative averages, Tanquilut contends. The analyst raised his price target for Laboratory Corp. to $190 from $154 and for Quest to $107 from $93.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Exelon (EXC) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Neil Kalton saying a key tenant to his thesis is that ExGen's nuclear fleet operates through the end of the units' various license extension periods, which will likely require additional policy support. 2. CommScope (COMM) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Sami Badri citing fundamental strength in the combined business computed in his updated CommScope-Arris (ARRS) merger model with the Arris acquisition expected to close in April 2019. 3. Quest Diagnostics (DGX) and LabCorp (LH) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies. 4. Hostess Brands (TWNK) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Rob Dickerson saying management execution, a turnaround to profitability in the Chicago bakery and improved pricing could return Hostess to "top-tier revenue growth" this year. 5. Amphenol (APH) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst William Stein saying in a world of uncertainty, Amphenol offers more dependable upside. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
