Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Apple (AAPL) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Loop Capital with analyst Ananda Baruah noting that the stock has historically outperformed in scenarios of "consistent upside" relative to consensus estimates or as negative trends around iPhone shipments "stop worsening." 2. United Airlines (UAL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Savanthi Syth saying United appears to be taking a different approach from its legacy peers, creating flexibility to be ready for a faster than anticipated recovery that could lead to market share gain. 3. Omega Healthcare (OHI) and Ventas (VTR) double-upgraded to Buy from Underperform at BofA with analyst Joshua Dennerlein saying he anticipates the next leg higher in healthcare REITs to be driven by improving earnings growth, with the recent vaccine developments and his discussions at NAREIT suggesting a proximity to a trough in earnings. 4. Montrose Environmental (MEG) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA with analyst Andrew Obin noting that the stock has pulled back following an equity offering last week, and with valuation of 13.5-times enterprise value to expected 2022 EBITDA, the shares now trade at a discount to the peer group average. 5. Proofpoint (PFPT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Truist with analyst Joel Fishbein saying the company is "well positioned" for a beat-and-raise Q4 performance following its "solid" Q3 results, the analyst tells investors in a research note.
