Conviction Buy
Voya Financial upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Alex Scott added Voya Financial (VOYA) to his firm's Americas Conviction List while maintaining a Buy rating on the shares. He also raised his price target for the shares to $68 from $59. Voya has a better ability to beat earnings estimates in the near term as well as in 2020 and 2021 relative to Prudential Financial (PRU), Scott tells investors in a research note. He believes expense reduction, share count reduction, and the addition of a large record keeping contract earn in can drive the upside for Voya.

Buy
Prudential downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Alex Scott removed Prudential Financial (PRU) from his firm's Americas Conviction List while maintaining a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst also lowered his price target for the stock to $99 from $107. Voya Financial (VOYA) has a better ability to beat earnings estimates in the near term as well as in 2020 and 2021 relative to Prudential, Scott tells investors in a research note. While a good amount "near-term negativity" is already priced into Prudential, the shares do not have many catalysts in the next six months outside of earnings beats, adds the analyst. He sees a more challenging near-term setup for Prudential and shifts his conviction to Voya.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. PayPal (PYPL) assumed at Buy, up from Hold at Canaccord with analyst Joseph Vafi saying PayPal is a "payments juggernaut," and its growth in payment volumes "at this scale is impressive." 2. Activision Blizzard (ATVI) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Nomura Instinet with analyst Andrew Marok saying last month's launch of World of Warcraft Classic has driven "strong, above-expectations" engagement in the franchise. 3. Voya Financial (VOYA) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Alex Scott saying Voya has a better ability to beat earnings estimates in the near term as well as in 2020 and 2021 relative to Prudential Financial (PRU). 4. AbbVie (ABBV) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Navin Jacob saying he sees the company's acquisition of Allegan as "highly compelling," with NewCo generating over $20B of annual free cash flow and a 9% yield by 2023 when its Humira exclusivity patent expires. 5.

JPMorgan shifts Life Insurance view to negative from neutral
JPMorgan analyst Jimmy Bhullar shifted is view on the Life Insurance sector to negative from neutral ahead of the Q3 reporting season. His outlook for business fundamentals is "incrementally cautious" and he feels that consensus 2020 earnings estimates for most insurers are too high. In addition, stock prices do not seem to have reacted to the decline in interest rates, Bhullar tells investors in a research note. The analyst lowered his estimates for most companies, and his numbers for 2020 are now "considerably below" consensus on AIG (AIG), Hartford Financial (HIG), and Voya Financial (VOYA), but slightly above for Aflac (AFL) and Unum Group (UNM). For Q3, Bhullar thinks consensus estimates for Athene Holding (ATH) and Reinsurance Group (RGA) are" especially high," while numbers for Principal Financial (PFG) "seem conservative." Globe Life (GL) and Lincoln National (LNC) are the analyst's top picks and he remains negative on Brighthouse Financial (BHF).
