Below is a list of stocks analysts have singled out to look at carefully Monday, as follows:

Azul SA (NYSE:AZUL) analyst calls showed it reiterated as Buy and a target hike to 48 from 43 at Deutsche Bank. Raymond James also reiterated its Outperform rating and raised its target to 47 from 40.

Baidu Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU) was maintained as Overweight but the price target was cut to $148 from $160 at KeyBanc Capital Markets. Baidu was indicated down almost 1% at $99.00 on Friday, in a 52-week range of $97.77 to $234.88.

Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ:BBBY) was raised to In-Line from Underperform at Evercore ISI. Shares closed up almost 3% at $9.00 on Thursday and were indicated up about 2% at $9.18 on Friday. The consensus target price is $14.23.

Cincinnati Bell Inc. (NYSE:CBB) was raised to Buy from Neutral but the price target was cut to 7 from $10 at UBS. Shares had a prior consensus target price of 7.75.

CommScope Holding Co. Inc. (NASDAQ:COMM) was maintained as Outperform at Credit Suisse, but the firm again lowered its price target to 23 from 27, as some of the bullish thesis it had earlier in Y2019 has become less likely. The consensus target price is at 23.71.

Jack in the Box Inc. (NASDAQ:JACK) was raised to Outperform from Neutral and was added the Best Ideas List at Wedbush. Wedbush noted that same-store sales growth and margin trends are solid as the fast-food company’s higher free cash flow target and EBITDA targets seem realistic. Jack in the Box is also said to be still valued below all other primarily franchised quick-serve peers.

Wheaton Precious Metals Corp. (NYSE:WPM) was reiterated as Neutral but the target price was raised to 38 from 34 at Credit Suisse.

Have a terrific week
