Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Exact Sciences (EXAS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs by analyst Patrick Donnelly, who said the current momentum of the Cologuard commercial ramp provides "strong basis" for the company's premium valuation while the combination of positive Cologuard catalysts and new product roll-outs provide upside to current levels, even after the stock's 75% rally since the beginning of 2018. Exact Sciences is a "must-own growth stock" given the "clean runway forward that is largely in its control with potential for discovery value in the pipeline outside of Cologuard," the analyst said. 2. Siemens (SIEGY) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst Andreas Willi, who sees a relative valuation opportunity after the stock's 27% underperformance over the past two years. He believes investor sentiment can improve "after a period where the story has drifted." 3. Kadmon (KDMN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi by analyst Robyn Karnauskas, who assigned a 50% probability to KD-025 in chronic graft versus host disease with an unadjusted ~$900M market opportunity. However, upside to the stock will depend on quality of the data likely, Karnauskas said. 4. EverQuote (EVER) upgraded to Buy following Q4 beat at BofA/Merrill by analyst Mat Schindler, who said user growth has re-accelerated, supporting evidence of a turnaround, and thinks estimates are conservative and views the risk/reward as attractive. 5. Ally Financial (ALLY) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Sandler O'Neill by analyst Christopher Donat, who said he believes Ally's near-prime auto finance book is "meaningfully less risky" than Santander Consumer's (SC) book or the unsecured credit cards of Discover (DFS) and Capital One (COF), yet all four stocks trade at similar multiples. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Buy
Ally Financial buyback plan above forecast, says Citi
Citi analyst Arren Cyganovich says Ally Financial's new repurchase plan of up to $1.25B is above his forecast of $900M. The analyst is "somewhat surprised" by the 25% increase in the authorization with the implementation of the current expected credit loss model beginning on January 1, 2020, but he sees it as a sign of confidence that the company "can withstand the initial phased-in capital hit to book value." Cyganovich has a Buy rating on Ally Financial.

Equal Weight
Ally buyback approval significantly higher than estimated, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck noted that Fed CCAR instructions released on February 5 exempted banks with assets between $100B-$250B from the 2019 stress test, which meant that Ally Financial did not need to wait for Fed approval in June to announced that its board authorized the repurchase of up to $1.25B in common stock for 3Q19-2Q20. This $1.25B authorization is significantly higher than her $560M estimate, said Graseck, who raised her 2020 EPS estimate for Ally by 14c, or 3.5%, in response to the news. Graseck keeps an Equal Weight rating on Ally shares.

Market Perform
Ally Financial price target raised to $39 from $34 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham raised his price target on Ally Financial to $39 after its Q1 earnings beat. The analyst is keeping his Market Perform rating however, saying he is concerned about the company's capital, with 9.3% B3CET1 ratio as the "lowest among its cohort". The analyst add that he prefers other opportunities among his coverage of large-cap banks, specialty lenders, and financial technology stocks.
