Wall Street’s Top Analysts Upgrades, Downgrades & Initiations


Daily HeffX-LTN reviews Wall Street analysts research reports to find new investing and trading ideas for our readers. Some reports cover stocks to buy, and others cover stocks to sell or avoid.

Below is a list of Wall Street’s Top analysts outlook for Key issues for Thursday, as follows:

Capital One Financial Corp. (NYSE:COF) was maintained as Neutral at Credit Suisse after the bank and lender reduced its Y 2017 buyback authorization after it refiled the CCAR submission.

General Mills Inc. (NYSE:GIS) analysts reiterated as Hold at Argus, but it was also called a value stock. The call follows what were called solid fiscal earnings results despite some near-term challenges.

Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) was maintained as Sector Weight at KeyBanc Capital Markets, noting lowered sales expectations for Model 3 deliveries. The firm also believes that the Model 3 margin ramp will disappoint when investors will have to acknowledge lower growth that is not priced into Tesla shares.

UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE:UNH) was reiterated as Outperform at Credit Suisse on the heels of it announcing last week that it would buy Empresas Banmédica, a leading health care provider and insurer serving Chile, Colombia and Peru. The $2.8-B deal is said to be a testament that UnitedHealth will continue to use its strong balance sheet to be an opportunistic acquirer.
