Rent-A-Center upgraded to Buy at Janney Montgomery Scott after 'solid' results
As previously reported, Janney Montgomery Scott analyst John Rowan upgraded Rent-A-Center to Buy from Neutral after the company reported "solid" results. Citing both the company's "strong" quarter and some of the other repositioning items management has done, the analyst thinks Rent-A-Center is in a "strong position" going forward to drive EPS growth and capital returns to shareholders. Rowan also raised his price target on the shares to $32 from $29.

Rent-A-Center upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel
Stifel analyst John Baugh upgraded Rent-A-Center to Buy from Hold with an unchanged price target of $28. The recent pullback in the shares creates an attractive entry point, Baugh tells investors in a research note. With the company's expense cuts now completed, its balance sheet in "good shape,"and a "significantly improved ability to tackle" the $25B-$30B lease-to-own total addressable market, Rent-A-Center shares represent solid value at current levels, contends the analyst.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Argo Group (ARGO) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette with analyst Christopher Campbell saying he believes the company's "sizable" Q4 International reserve charge will restore balance sheet confidence and that new CEO Kevin Rehnberg's U.S. Operations outperformance can be replicated in its International segment. 2. Live Nation (LYV) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst David Joyce saying he believes Live Nation shares have "pulled back needlessly" following its Q3 earnings results, and recommended taking advantage of the pullback. 3. Rent-A-Center (RCII) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst John Baugh saying the recent pullback in the shares creates an attractive entry point. 4. Crowdstrike (CRWD) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Goldman Sachs with analyst Heather Bellini she sees a more balanced risk/reward with the stock down 23% since her October 11 downgrade to Sell. 5. Teva (TEVA) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Christopher Schott citing valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
