Top Analyst Upgrades and Downgrades: Juniper Networks, Netflix, MannKind, Xerox and More

Stocks were firm on Tuesday morning during a shortened week that will be full of economic reports. 24/7 Wall St. reviews dozens of analyst research reports each morning of the week for new ideas for our readers. Some of the analyst research reports cover stocks to buy, and some of them cover stocks to sell or to avoid.

As this is the first day of the second half of 2014, we already ran the best performing DJIA stocks and also the best performing S&P 500 stocks so far in 2014. These are this Tuesday’s top analyst upgrades, downgrades and initiations from Wall Street firms.

Amicus Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: FOLD) already had a great Monday with a gain of more than 10% to $3.34, but the stock did rise as much as $4.06. Now we have two more upgrades: to Buy from Neutral at Janney with a $5 price target (from $2.50) and to Outperform from Market Perform at Leerink Swann.

comScore Inc. (NASDAQ: SCOR) was raised to Buy from Neutral and the price target was raised to $41 (versus a $35.48 close) by Goldman Sachs.

Expedia Inc. (NASDAQ: EXPE) was started with an Outperform rating and was assigned a $90 price target (versus a $78.76 close) at Oppenheimer.
