While a final vote on the decision is not expected until next month, he anticipates a rule change, Scialla tells investors.

Catch up on today's…
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Lowe's upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst John Baugh saying the company had an impressive April quarter, with 20.4% comps in the final month and continued strong trends in May driven by online sales. 2. Las Vegas Sands (LVS) upgraded an Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Ben Combes saying the company's "strong" liquidity position suggests a 1.5 year runway in a zero revenue environment, and it is still making substantial discretionary capital investments. 3. PDC Energy (PDCE) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Michael Scialla saying the recent oil price rally reduces concern over the company's potential reliance on its credit facility to fund a near-term debt maturity. 4. Avis Budget (CAR) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Adam Jonas saying the company's $500M secured bond issuance was "critical" to giving it time to "de-fleet in a more orderly way," while it has also achieved in excess of $2B of run-rate annualized cost savings. 5. Honeywell (HON) upgraded to Buy from Hold at HSBC. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Stifel analyst Michael Scialla upgraded PDC Energy to Buy from Hold with a price target of $21, up from $14. The recent oil price rally reduces concern over the company's potential reliance on its credit facility to fund a near-term debt maturity, Scialla tells investors in a research note. "Strong" free cash flow generation should fund an upcoming maturity, bolster a "solid" balance sheet, and cause the stock's 40% discount to mid-cap peers to narrow, adds the analyst.
