Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Pearson (PSO) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Daniel Kerven saying the company's business model is improving as its moves from print to digital. 2. Lumentum (LITE) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Samik Chatterjee seeing a "solid" outlook for the company's telecom business amid "strong" growth led by 5G investments and upside to synergy targets relative to recent acquisition of Oclaro. 3. Best Buy (BBY) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer with analyst Brian Nagel stating the company has undergone a significant transformation under the direction of new senior leadership to one of retail's preeminent omnichannel operators. 4. Varian Medical (VAR) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst Jason Bednar saying that with near-term trends sounding healthy, multiple paths are emerging for Varian to sustain upper-single digit plus oncology order growth, and low- to mid-teens EPS growth. 5. Chipotle (CMG) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Wedbush with analyst Nick Setyan noting he no longer sees risk to near- and medium-term same-store sales growth and unit-level margin expectations.

Competitor recall highlights superiority of ViewRay system, says Piper Jaffray
After a notice appeared yesterday on the FDA website indicating that Elekta had issued a recall on its Unity system, Piper Jaffray analyst Matt O'Brien said he does not want to overstate the impact of this specific recall on ViewRay's (VRAY) ability to win business, but he does think that it highlights the superiority of the MRIdian system compared to Elekta's Unity platform. The analyst, who continues to believe that ViewRay's system is superior not only to Elekta in the MRgRT space but also when compared to "the dominant player," Varian Medical (VAR), keeps an Overweight rating and $15 price target on ViewRay shares.
