Neutral
Activision Blizzard initiated with a Neutral at Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Andrew Marok last night initiated coverage of Activision Blizzard with a Neutral rating and $49 price target. The company's near-term release roadmap does not appear to provide many opportunities for "notable upside," especially at Blizzard, Marok tells investors in a research note. Outside of "dependable releases" such as the yearly Call of Duty title and semi-annual World of Warcraft expansion, Activision's frontline product pipeline is at a "low point," says the analyst. As such, he sees limited near-term catalysts for the shares.

Nomura Instinet analyst Andrew Marok last night initiated coverage of Electronic Arts (EA) with a Buy rating and $120 price target. The analyst also started Activision Blizzard (ATVI) with a Neutral rating. Electronic Arts is well positioned to capitalize on trends in the broader gaming industry, Marok tells investors in a research note. The company's subscription service is scaling well and is expanding to new platforms, adds the analyst. Further, he views Apex Legends as a new growth driver for EA.

Goldman says CNX valuation premium too high, downgrades to Sell
Goldman Sachs analyst John Nelson downgraded CNX Resources to Sell with a $14 price target. The stock's valuation premium relative to Appalachian Exploration & Production peers is too high, Nelson tells investors in a research note. He believes that a reduced share buyback pace and a shift of investor focus towards CNX's "weakening" balance sheet will drive a mean reversion of the stock's year-to-date price outperformance. The analyst views CNX's risk/reward profile as "relatively unattractive" as we sees 6% downside to his $14 12-month price target.

SunTrust lowers price targets on Energy E&P names on continued oil volatility
SunTrust analyst Welles Fitzpatrick has lowered his price target on select energy exploration and production companies as part of his broader sector note, citing rig count declines, volatile oil prices, and low visibility from delayed 2019 guidance to Q4 earnings. The analyst lowers the price target on Noble Energy (NBL) to $32 from $42 and Extraction Oil & Gas (XOG) to $10 from $22, adding that along with Range Resources (RRC), these companies are "candidates for deceleration". Fitzpatrick also lowered his price target on Anadarko Petroleum (APC) to $55 from $70, HighPoint Resources (HPR) to $5 from $8, SRC Energy (SRCI) to $9 from $14, and PDC Energy (PDCE) to $57 from $65.

U.S. sanctions on Iran could benefit crude tankers, says Stifel
After the U.S. recently said it will re-institute sanctions on Iran on May 1 to now include the eight countries that previously had waivers, Stifel analyst Benjamin Nolan said he believes crude tankers could see a benefit. Nolan noted that much of Iran's oil is moved by their own vessels and the net effect could be increased demand for approximately 30 VLCCs from the trio of Saudi Arabia, Russia, and the UAE, who have said they are willing to fill the void left by absent Iranian barrels. Stocks in the crude tanker group include International Seaways (INSW), TEN, Ltd. (TNP), Scorpio Tankers (STNG), Euronav NV (EURN), DHT Holdings (DHT) and Ardmore Shipping (ASC).

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Macy's (M) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Alexandra Walvis saying she sees a more balanced risk/reward in the wake of the stock's recent underperformance. 2. SAIC (SAIC) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Edward Caso saying he has "growing comfort" with the company's ongoing integration of its Engility acquisition and sees the deal producing a "notable improvement" in free cash flow. 3. Scorpio Tankers (STNG) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Noah Parquette saying he's seen a considerable increase in interest from investors in the IMO 2020 product tanker story in recent weeks. 4. KB Home (KBH) and Taylor Morrison (TMHC) were upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital. 5. MYR Group (MYRG) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Noelle Dilts saying she sees "compelling dynamics" in the electric transmission and distribution market as utilities move investment toward power delivery in order to address reliability concerns, the need for grid hardening, and aging infrastructure.

JPMorgan upgrades Scorpio Tankers to Overweight on IMO 2020 momentum
JPMorgan analyst Noah Parquette upgraded Scorpio Tankers to Overweight from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $34 from $29. The analyst says he's seen a considerable increase in interest from investors in the IMO 2020 product tanker story in recent weeks. As the largest owner of product tankers in the world, Scorpio Tankers "should benefit from this momentum," Parquette tells investors in a research note. Further, strength in product tanker rates could be seen in Q3 and Q4 as refineries exit maintenance periods and many ship owners begin filling their ships with low sulphur fuel before the actual switch date, adds the analyst. He sees a "reasonable path" to $34 per share by year-end.
