Mizuho analyst Paul Sankey upgraded Occidental Petroleum to Buy from Neutral with a price target of $58, up from $44.

With the stock currently yielding 7.0%, a yield supported by recent improvement in oil prices, and Occidental having made good recent progress on divestitures, the time is now for an upgrade, Sankey tells investors in a research note.
