Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Bank of America (BAC) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst James Fotheringham expecting upward consensus estimates revisions and a "multiple re-rating" to drive 34% total return in the shares. 2. SunPower (SPWR), SunRun (RUN) upgraded to Buy from Neutral as SolarEdge (SEDG) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Brian Lee anticipating "volume tailwinds" in the second half of 2019 given the recent signs of strength in the sector's financing environment. 3. CNH Industrial (CNHI) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Deutsche Bank with analyst Chad Dillard saying he's turning positive on North America large agriculture. 4. U.S. Cellular (USM), Telephone and Data (TDS) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Simon Flannery stating that he sees both stocks as "very attractively valued" with each down over 20% from their recent peak levels. 5. Prosperity Bancshares (PB) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Raymond James with analyst Michael Rose saying the LegacyTexas Financial (LTXB) transaction provides meaningful scale in some of the most attractive markets in the country. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

BMO upgrades Bank of America to Outperform, sees 34% return potential
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham upgraded Bank of America to Outperform from Market Perform with an unchanged price target of $37. The stock closed Monday down 11c to $27.93. The analyst expects upward consensus estimates revisions and a "multiple re-rating" to drive 34% total return in the shares. Bank of America's current valuation multiple is 15% below its long-term average, Fotheringham tells investors in a research note. Further, even if the Federal Reserve cuts rates, positive earnings revisions from better fees, tax rates, provisions and buybacks should "more than offset" any related net interest margin dilution, contends the analyst.

State Street, BofA, PNC among likely CCAR 'winners,' says Raymond James
Ahead of the Fed's release of its annual Comprehensive Capital Analysis Review, or CCAR, on June 27, Raymond James analysts led by David Long previewed the event, noting that "less complex" firms with $100B-$250B in assets have been effectively removed from this year after the central bank moved them to a two-year stress test cycle. Of the 18 total bank holding companies reviewed, and the seven of which the firm covers, Long and the team see State Street (STT), Bank of America (BAC) and PNC Financial (PNC) as "likely winners," they noted.
