Hold
National Vision initiated with a Hold at Loop Capital
As previously reported, Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba initiated National Vision Holdings with a Hold rating and $26 price target. The analyst says the company is operating in the "very favorable" industry of U.S. optical retailing where sales grew by an annualized 3.1% from 2007 to 2017 and saw "only modest" declines during the Great Recession. Chukumba adds that National Vision shares offer a "unique and differentiated concept", with multiple growth drivers for its comparable store sales and potential for "long square footage growth runway", but believes that the stock price "fully reflects" the company's growth drivers and prefers to wait for a "more attractive entry point".

JPMorgan starts Yunji with Overweight rating, $14 price target
JPMorgan analyst Andre Chang last night initiated coverage of Yunji with an Overweight rating and $14 price target. The analyst expects Yunji's "niche business model" to drive its revenue to outgrow the China e-commerce industry, "off a low base." The stock offers a "high" risk/high reward with risk tilted towards the upside, Chang told investors in a research note. The analyst expects Yunji's bottom-line to turn profitable in 2020.

Sprint, T-Mobile headlines positive for Dish, Intelsat, says Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Brett Feldman, while taking no view on the outcome of the proposed merger between Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS), laid out his thoughts for other industry participants following the Wall Street Journal's report that the Department of Justice is unlikely to approve the deal as currently structured. The analyst believes investors will initially see the headlines as negative for the other major wireless carriers, namely AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ), since they "create uncertainty over long-term industry structure." Further, investors will initially see these headlines as a slight positive for tower operators American Tower (AMT), Crown Castle (CCI) and SBA Communications (SBAC) as they "imply less risk of material cell site decommissioning," Feldman told investors earlier in a research note. The analyst also thinks investors will view the Journal's report as positive for owners of excess spectrum such as Dish (DISH) and Intelsat (I) and a slight positive for cable operators like Altice USA (ATUS), Charter (CHTR) and Comcast (CMCSA).

American Assets Trust (AAT) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc with analyst Todd Thomas saying the stock has surpassed his previous $45 price target. 3. Ball Corp. (BLL) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst Mark Wilde saying that after an "impressive run," the stock is now trading at the upper end of its peer group range. 4. Charter (CHTR) downgraded to Neutral on valuation at Macquarie with analyst Amy Young saying shares reflect much of the operational and free cash flow potential and further multiple expansion hinges on its ability to set a consistent track record. 5. U.S. Steel (X) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Curt Woodworth saying after performing deep dive analysis on U.S. Steel Flat Rolled segment, the analyst concludes the step-function rise in unit costs the past several years coupled with loss of automotive share suggests the company is in a weaker competitive position versus peers entering the "Sheet Tsunami" period in the U.S. from 2021-2022.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Citi (C) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Richard Ramsden saying he sees a "realistic path" to a 13% return on tangible common equity in 2020 for Citi, or 100 basis points ahead of market expectations, which he notes is not contingent on either higher interest rates or strengthening global growth trends. 2. Comcast (CMCSA) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Guggenheim with analyst Mike McCormack saying the company's successful pivot from primarily a video distributor to a connectivity company "has been fairly smooth." 3. Zynga (ZNGA) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens with analyst Jeff Cohen saying the continued acceleration of recent acquisitions and the fact that Social Casino could be poised for a second half re-acceleration give him additional confidence in Zynga's live service portfolio. 4. Penumbra (PEN) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Robert Marcus saying the Street is overly focused on competitive entrants to the stroke aspiration market. 5. Cypress Semiconductor (CY) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Craig Hettenbach citing press reports indicating that the company is exploring strategic options.

Comcast upgraded to Buy on successful connectivity pivot at Guggenheim
As previously reported, Guggenheim analyst Mike McCormack upgraded Comcast to Buy from Neutral, contending that the company's successful pivot from primarily a video distributor to a connectivity company "has been fairly smooth." The results in Q1 showed that multiple-system operators and cable operators are outgaining telecom rivals in the broadband space meaningfully, said McCormack, who added that he expects continued broadband gains. Additionally, NBCU keeps operating at "a very high level" and the Wireless business is showing steady gains, according to McCormack, who raised his price target on Comcast shares to $52 from $39.

B. Riley FBR concerned ITC ruling against Comcast not strong enough
B. Riley FBR analyst Eric Wold says that while the International Trade Commission's ruling that Comcast (CMCSA) infringed upon two claims of Tivo's (TIVO) '011 patent is a positive for Tivo, he's concerned the decision is not strong enough. There are ways for Comcast to work around the patent, Wold tells investors in a research note. However, he's optimistic for an eventual settlement/license with Comcast and believes Tivo shares "are pricing in less than a zero-percent chance." The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Tivo with an $18 price target.

ING Group (ING) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Societe Generale. 3. Williams (WMB) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays analyst Christine Cho saying the company is now positioned to reduce leverage at an accelerated pace and internally fund incremental growth projects and/or return capital to shareholders in a more meaningful way. 4. Accenture (ACN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Ashwin Shirvaikar saying against a backdrop of rising political and policy risks, a more defensive Information Technology Services stance is appropriate. 5. Nutanix (NTNX) and Teradata (TDC) were upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Maxim analyst Jason McCarthy initiated Hemispherx with a Buy rating and a price target of $8, citing the company's "differentiated immune oncology approach" Ampligen which leverages the innate immune response to alter the chemokine profile in the tumor microenvironment. The analyst notes that multiple early stage combination studies are "ongoing", but as the immune oncology space grows, he sees "combinations" as the likely key that will unlock "larger market opportunities." McCarthy believes that Ampligen offers upside with data updates expected over 2019 and 2020.
