Cott Corp. upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Judy Hong upgraded Cott Corp to Buy with an unchanged price target of $18. The analyst says the stock has underperformed relative to its peers with no significant catalysts, and the weakness more than accounts for the potential FX headwinds. Hong believes the stock will recover over the next 6-12 months as EBITDA growth accelerates.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Cott Corp. (COT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Judy Hong saying the stock has underperformed relative to its peers with no significant catalysts, and the weakness more than accounts for the potential FX headwinds. 2. Celanese (CE) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying the company's operating performance has proven to be "surprisingly durable." 3. Medical Properties Trust (MPW) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Chad Vanacore saying the company has a "long runway for above-average growth" given a "strong" pipeline of acquisition targets, a diversifying asset base, and the "attractive" macro environment. 4. United Continental (UAL) upgraded to In-Line from Underperform at Imperial Capital with analyst Michael Derchin saying current valuations fairly reflect the company's recent strong performance and future outlook. 5. Snap (SNAP) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Summit Insights and to Neutral from Sell at UBS. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Idea of LBO for Cott 'hardly without merit,' says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy said his analysis suggests that a financial buyer could generate an "acceptable" 20%-25% internal rate of return over a 3-5 year period under a leveraged buyout scenario whereby Cott is acquired at a 30% premium, telling investors that he believes the idea of a potential financial buyer for Cott is "hardly without merit." While Cott's board may be reluctant sellers with the shares trading where they are right now, the idea of an LBO suggests a floor for the stock, said Grudy, who identifies Cott as a preferred value idea in beverages. He keeps a Buy rating and $18 price target on the stock.

Primo Water price target raised to $20 from $18 at Imperial Capital
Imperial Capital analyst George Kelly raised his price target for Primo Water to $20 saying he remains optimistic following the company's Q4 results. The analyst sees potential for Primo to maintain elevated same-store-sales growth as the company improves its product and messaging. Further, favorable consumer and competitive dynamics should allow for margin expansion over time, Kelly tells investors in a research note. The analyst maintains an Outperform rating on the shares.

Primo Water resumed with a Buy at B. Riley FBR
B. Riley FBR analyst Kara Anderson resumed coverage of Primo Water with a Buy rating and $18 price target. The analyst believes the comapny's "temporary hiccups" on refill volume and store attrition can be fixed with credit card readers, price optimization, and location expansion. He sees product modernization and brand harmonization as positive long-term growth drivers for Primo Water.

Lake Street downgrades Primo Water to Hold after guidance cut, CEO exit
As previously reported, Lake Street analyst Mark Argento downgraded Primo Water to Hold from Buy with a price target of $14, down from $18, after the company lowered its FY19 guidance "again" and announced the termination of CEO Matt Sheehan. He prefers to move to the sidelines until he rebuilds confidence in the trajectory of the business and management's strategy following another quarter of reduced guidance and poor refill performance and given the CEO transition, Argento tells investors.
