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.

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.

Impacts of Bank of America decision manageable for First Data, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Timothy Willi sees three potential outcomes as Bank of America (BAC) reportedly weighs the exit of its joint venture with First Data (FDC). The joint venture can be dissolved, the terms can be renegotiated more favorably for Bank of America, and/or Bank of America can acquire an increased ownership of the venture, Willi tells investors in a research note. The current agreement ends in June 2020 and any party wishing to terminate must give one year notice, the analyst adds. While he believes that each of these scenarios could be an incremental negative for First Data, the analyst thinks the impacts are either "manageable or immaterial" in the context of a combined Fiserv (FISV), First Data. Willi has a Market Perform rating on First Data.

Rosenblatt sees Apple fundamentals deteriorating, downgrades to Sell
Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang downgraded Apple to Sell from Neutral, citing his view that its fundamental will deteriorate over the next 6-12 months. Zhang believes new iPhone sales will be disappointing, iPad sales growth will slow in the second half of 2019, and that service revenue growth will also decelerate. His analysis of retail data suggests overall iPhone sales were flat month-over-month in June and he expects major iPhone upgrades to be pushed out to the second half of 2020 given what are seen as limited upgrades for the new iPhone models in the fall and expectations of a 5G iPhone in 2020. While Zhang cut his rating to Sell, he does not see Apple as a stock to short, noting that the company has "plenty of cash and a meaningful stock buy back program," the analyst added. Zhang keeps a $150 price target on Apple shares, which are down $2.86, or 1.4%, to $201.37 in pre-market trading.

Apple (AAPL) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Rosenblatt with analyst Jun Zhang citing his view that its fundamental will deteriorate over the next 6-12 months. 2. Verizon (VZ) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Michael Rollins saying rising long-term industry risks and the stock's current valuation premium are likely to limit returns over the next 12-months. 3. F5 Networks (FFIV) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Rod Hall saying the company's earnings risks are increasing due to the weaker short-term spending environment and increasing competitive threat. 4. BNY Mellon (BK) and State Street (STT) were double downgraded to Underweight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley. 5. American Airlines (AAL) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Jose Caiado citing labor and Boeing (BA) 737 Max risk.

JPMorgan turns 'incrementally positive' on iPhone shipments, boosts Apple target
JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee is turning "incrementally positive" on the volume outlook for iPhone shipments in 2020. Global supply chain and smartphone channel checks suggest that Apple is likely to "pull an additional lever" in the form of a refresh of the legacy iPhone SE/iPhone 8 model to address a much more "value" category relative to recent launches, Chatterjee tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes the incrementally positive volume outlook for 2020 is likely to drive upgrades to consensus earnings expectations and positive sentiment for Apple shares. This would mark a "significant change" from downward revisions to near-term earnings over the last few months amid concerns around the impact of the U.S.-China trade war, Chatterjee believes. He increased his 2020 iPhone shipment outlook to 195M units and his fiscal 2020 and 2021 earnings per share estimates to $13.00 and $15.30 from $12.85 and $15.10, respectively. The analyst also boosted his price target for Apple to $239 from $233 and keeps an Overweight rating on the name.

Data points to Apple services re-acceleration, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty noted that third-party data from Sensor Tower indicates that Apple's June quarter App Store net revenue grew 17.5%, which she notes would mark the second straight quarter of accelerating App Store growth. If she uses the Sensor Tower App Store revenue figure of $3.85B and keeps all her other Apple Services forecasts unchanged, it would imply June quarter normalized Services revenue growth of 20.0%, which Huberty notes is 1.5% higher than consensus. She maintains an Overweight rating and $231 price target on Apple shares.

Eldorado Resorts price target raised to $74 from $56 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Carlo Santarelli raised his price target for Eldorado Resorts (ERI) to $74 from $56 following the company's acquisition of Caesars Entertainment (CZR). The combined entity, from a financial perspective, "harmonizes nicely" and generates "considerable" free cash flow, which, if valued properly relative to peers, implies "meaningful upside" in the shares, Santarelli tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Buy rating on both Eldorado and Caesars.

While he sees a potential bull case to $15 per share where the market values Caesars at Friday's multiples inclusive of the greater than $500M of synergies expected for the merger, Allen said he also sees a less likely bear case of $9 per share if the deal were to fall apart.

After meeting with Eldorado's senior management to discuss the deal, his conclusion is that the team is talented and thorough, but more explaining will be needed to convince investors why now is the right time for such a transformational deal, Curtis added in a separate note about the buyer. He keeps a Neutral rating on Eldorado shares with a $42 price target on the stock.

Lee lowered his volume sales forecast for 2019 by 20% to 27k units and 2020 by 45% to 40k units.

Atlassian (TEAM) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BTIG with analyst Edward Parker saying after a "great run" of over 100% in the last 12 months, the risk-reward on the stock has turned more "balanced." 5.
