Buy
Wells Fargo upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus
Argus analyst Stephen Biggar upgraded Wells Fargo to Buy with a price target of $60 after the company named Charlie Scharf as its new CEO last week. The analyst is positive on Scharf's "impressive industry background" to improve Wells Fargo's financial performance, noting that he is a former protege of JPMorgan's Jamie Dimon. Biggar expects the new CEO to initially focus on addressing the company's regulatory issues which had stifled growth and working toward removal of the Federal Reserve's $2T asset cap imposed on the bank. The analyst adds that this removal should be a "strong catalyst" for Wells Fargo shares.

Neutral
Wells Fargo downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird
Baird analyst David George downgraded Wells Fargo to Neutral from Outperform. The analyst likes the new CEO choice but the macro headwinds of slow growth and low rates are real, and improving the earnings run-rate and efficiency will take time. He noted the shares have a nice run over the past month and he would be a buyer in the mid-$40's. George lowered his price target to $50 from $52 on Wells Fargo shares.

Morgan Stanley ups Wells target to $50 after CEO hiring, but stays on sidelines
Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck said the hiring of Charlie Scharf to become CEO at Wells Fargo is a positive that lifts "a big uncertainty" and she raised her price target on the bank's shares to $50 from $47 following the news. However, she remains on the sidelines until there is more clarity on when the Fed imposed asset cap and consent order can be lifted, estimating that it has added about $2B to the bank's expense base. She also wonders if Scharf will pursue further business rationalization, which could reset earnings expectations going forward. Graseck keeps an Equal Weight rating on Wells Fargo shares, though she sees a path to a potential $56 stock price over the longer-term once the consent order gets lifted.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. TSMC (TSM) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Bruce Lu saying after a re-examination of industry capacity builds and order revisions, he thinks he's underestimating the positive impacts on TSMC arising from trade uncertainty. 2. Wells Fargo (WFC) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Stephen Biggar citing the company's appointment of Charlie Scharf as its new CEO. 3. Cigna (CI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Matthew Borsch claiming that the current 8-times his expected forward earnings valuation multiple is "attractive" as the stock represents a "better hedge" against political and health policy uncertainty. 4. Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Seth Basham saying turning around declining retailers is a very difficult task, particularly amidst unfavorable secular trends and soft industry sales growth, but Bed Bath & Beyond has a "good chance of stabilization" in earnings over the next two years as its changes take hold. 5. Restaurant Brands (QSR) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Longbow with analyst Alton Stump saying after calls with U.S. Burger King franchisees, he believes same-store sales for Restaurant Brands' Burger King concept were up 4.5%-5.0% in Q3 ahead of his prior estimate of 2.0% growth and consensus at up 3.4%.
