Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Altria Group (MO) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Judy Hong saying the valuations in the tobacco sector are trading at a 10-year trough in spite of the "more accommodating" macro backdrop for Consumer Staples that includes a late cycle and lower yields. 2. Focus Financial (FOCS) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette. 3. Deutsche Bank (DB) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at UBS. 4. Morgan Stanley (MS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi. 5. Snap (SNAP) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Heath Terry saying the company's new Android app, the launch of Snap Games, and new viral lenses should accelerator user growth. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Wells says Nielsen restatement could be positive for Monster, tobacco stocks
Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog noted that Nielsen (NLSN) just announced that it will restate data to address serious issues with its calculation methodology in the convenience store channel related to projections it applied to independent c-stores. The restated data, to be released on August 20, is expected to improve cigarette and energy drink trends and she views this as a positive for tobacco stocks and Monster Beverage (MNST). Publicly traded companies in the tobacco space include Altria Group (MO), British American Tobacco (BTI) and Philip Morris (PM).

Outperform
Altria has wide, defensible moat, says Wells Fargo
After conducting an in-depth review of the total U.S. nicotine market, Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog reiterated her Outperform rating on Altria Group shares, stating that her analysis highlights that growth is accelerating and confirms that Altria and Marlboro have "a wide and defensible competitive moat." While management's recently conveyed incrementally more negative outlook for cigarette industry volumes was interpreted by some as a possible warning that the company's long-term pricing and earnings model may be at risk, she disagrees with that view, Herzog tells investors. The analyst, who thinks the market "has again overreacted," sees a nice entry point into Altria shares for long-term investors.

Piper sees 'strong' sales growth for Cronos, starts with Overweight rating
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Lavery last night initiated coverage of Cronos Group (CRON) with an Overweight rating and $18 price target. The analyst expects "strong" sales growth from Cronos, driven by "sustainable category momentum." The company's partnership with Altria (MO) provides important capital and access into 230,000 US retail outlets, as well as regulatory and vapor product expertise, Lavery tells investors in a research note. He expects Cronos to have "modest" near-term revenues from Canadian cannabis production, but believes it has "significant" potential growth opportunities with CBD products in the U.S.
