Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. United Technologies (UTX) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs. 2. Eldorado Gold (EGO) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at National Bank and to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital. 3. Baxter (BAX) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Barclays with analyst Kristen Stewart saying over the past three months, expectations for the company have been reset, making a neutral rating more appropriate. The analyst also raised her price target for the shares to $72 from $67. 4. Cooper Companies (COO) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens with analyst Chris Cooley saying he believes that the company is positioned to boost its earnings guidance, citing a stronger growth of its single-use daily SiH contact lens sales, above-forecast Paragard sales, and more modest FX-related headwinds than previously anticipated. 5. Allegiant Travel (ALGT) upgraded to Outperform from In-Line at Imperial Capital with analyst Michael Derchin saying he views the shares as attractive after the company's fiscal 2019 earnings outlook came in well ahead of his expectations.
