Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Woodward (WWD) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst David Strauss saying the aero suppliers have broadly indicated that they expect working capital to be a source of cash as aero production rates decline. 2. Gap (GPS) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan analyst Matthew Boss saying the shares are down 70% since October 2018 and now trade below the current four-times "distressed retail" enterprise value to EBITDA average. 3. Ulta Beauty (ULTA) and Estee Lauder (EL) were upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Sandler. 4. Teva (TEVA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Gregg Gilbert saying his prior neutral view was based on the assumptions of investor skepticism regarding the company's long-term targets and its ability to manage its opioid and collusion liabilities. 5. Hostess Brands (TWNK) upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust with analyst Bill Chappell saying the stock represents a "unique way" to gain exposure to "reopening of America" and increased road travel over the next few months.

SunTrust analyst Bill…

SunTrust analyst Bill Chappell upgraded Hostess Brands to Buy from Hold with a price target of $16, up from $12. The stock represents a "unique way" to gain exposure to "reopening of America" and increased road travel over the next few months, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Longer term, Hostess Brands' efforts over the past year, along with its recent acquisition, will allow the company to generate consistent organic growth over the next few years, leading to higher multiple for the shares that is closer to its peer levels, Chappell adds.

The Company previously…

The Company previously issued its full year 2020 guidance on February 26, 2020, which did not include the impact of COVID-19. Despite first quarter results that exceeded company expectations, the company is suspending its 2020 outlook due to the rapidly evolving situation and the high degree of uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The company does not believe that it can estimate the full financial impacts of the pandemic with reasonable accuracy. The company believes it has sufficient liquidity to satisfy its cash needs, as supported by cash on hand, cash flow from operations and access to its revolving credit facility. The company reaffirms its long-term financial objectives of organic revenue growth, adjusted EBITDA margins and free cash flow conversion in the top-quartile of its peers.

Reports Q1 revenue…

Reports Q1 revenue $143.5M, consensus $228.88M. "We achieved strong results exceeding our expectations during the beginning of the first quarter prior to the impacts of COVID-19," commented Andy Callahan, the company's president and CEO. "In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have implemented meaningful changes to our operations to address our primary concern for the health and safety of our employees as we execute through this unprecedented operating environment. Our agile operating network has enabled us to be responsive and adjust to the changes we are facing while the dedication and perseverance of our employees has allowed us to successfully deliver against rapidly evolving consumer demands." Callahan continued, "During the quarter our team executed on the growth of core Hostess, completed significant integration activities for the recently acquired Voortman business and implemented operational improvements enabling us to exceed our financial targets for the first quarter and enabling us to continue to drive future sustainable, long-term profitable growth. Going forward, while we are pleased with our start to the year and our opportunities to benefit from additional food-at-home consumption, the greatest uncertainty is the duration and magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential impact on our business and supply chain. We are confident that the challenges and lessons learned during this time will make us stronger with our long-term objectives still well within our reach."
