Reports Q1 tangible book value per share of $11.82. The company commented: "The Q1 proved to be one of the most unique and challenging quarters in our industry's history. While the first half of the quarter was marked by strong financial performance, March was characterized by economic, logistical and social upheaval. In a rapidly changing operational and economic landscape, we successfully implemented a comprehensive business continuity plan without sacrificing the performance and service our borrowers and shareholders have come to expect and were pleased that pre-provision financial results exceeded our expectations, despite a 150 basis point drop in interest rates."

Genomic Health (GHDX) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk stating management appears "comfortable" with the pace of the current business ahead of the German reimbursement decision. 2. Bright Horizons (BFAM) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst George Tong sayinh favorable secular trends, a "strong" pipeline of new center openings, enrollment growth and tuition increases create a "robust" revenue growth outlook. 3. CommScope (COMM) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Mark Delaney stating the company can expand margins from a combination of lower input costs as DRAM pricing and copper pricing have both fallen. 4. First Financial Bancorp (FFBC) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Nathan Race saying shares are "overly discounted" at current levels and discussions with management indicate improved visibility on near-term core net interest margin and loan growth trends. 5.

Piper Jaffray analyst…

Piper Jaffray analyst Nathan Race upgraded First Financial Bancorp to Overweight from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $29 from $28. The shares are "overly discounted" at current levels and discussions with management indicate improved visibility on near-term core net interest margin and loan growth trends, Race tells investors in a research note. First Financial's credit metrics should be "much more benign" following an elevated one-off franchise finance charge-off in Q1, adds the analyst.
