ConocoPhillips upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Blake Fernandez upgraded ConocoPhillips to Overweight from Neutral with an unchanged price target of $75. The analyst attributes the stock's year-to-date underperformance to concern over major project spending risk. However, he believes this is embedded in current valuation levels. Project sanctions could put upward pressure on capital spending in an environment when investors are demanding discipline, Fernandez tells investors in a research note. That said, his modeling "conservatively contemplates" increased spending into 2020, yet still reflects "strong" free cash generation for ConocoPhillips at $60 per barrel Brent.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Apple (AAPL) upgraded to Strong Buy from Buy at Needham with analyst Laura Martin stating that Apple has five types of "network effects," including the strongest type, namely hardware-based direct network effects. 2. Qorvo (QRVO) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Toshiya Hari saying he's beginning to see early signs of smartphone unit stabilization with channel checks indicating near-term upside in China will offset "marginal weakness" at Apple. 3. Arista Networks (ANET) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Rod Hall seeing "significant upside potential" to consensus expectations driven by Arista's expansion into campus switching. 4. ConocoPhillips (COP) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Blake Fernandez attributing the stock's year-to-date underperformance to concern over major project spending risk, which he believes is embedded in current valuation levels. 5. Diplomat Pharmacy (DPLO) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst John Ransom saying the 56% decline in shares since the February earnings delay provides a valuation that could be attractive to a strategic buyer. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Cenovus Energy upgraded to Neutral with $11 price target at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Neil Mehta upgraded Cenovus Energy (CVE) to Neutral from Sell and raised his price target for the shares to $11 from $7.50. The analyst cites improvements to the company's leverage outlook and a more constructive commodity price environment, particularly for Canadian heavy crude, for the upgrade. However, he stills see more upside to Buy-rated ConocoPhillips (COP), Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ), Suncor (SU) and Imperial Oil (IMO) among large cap North American oils than Cenovus.
