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

Focus Financial Partners Inc. (NASDAQ:FOCS) was raised to Outperform from Market Perform with a 35 price target at Keefe Bruyette. That compares with the consensus target at 37.94.

Mesa Air Group Inc. (NASDAQ:MESA) was started with a Buy rating and a 16 price target at B. Riley FBR. The consensus target is at 14.67. The analysts see multiple opportunities for the large discount to the group to be reduced, as Mesa emerged from bankruptcy with a lower cost structure and the ability to pay down debt, which firm expects to substantially reduce interest expense over time.
Morgan Stanley Inc. (NYSE:MS) was raised to Buy from Neutral at Citigroup, which lifted the price target on the investment bank to 52. The consensus target is at 53.47.
Zoom Video Communications Inc. (NASDAQ:ZM) was started with an Overweight rating and a 115 price target at Stephens. That is Vs a much lower consensus price target of at 84.36. The shares were last seen at 93.30.
