Top Analyst Upgrades and Downgrades: Abbott, BioMarin, CBS, Cisco, GameStop, Petrobras, Sirius XM, SunPower, Yelp and More

Stocks were indicated slightly lower on Friday the 13th, but that is also after a sharp drop on Thursday. Sell-offs create panic, but they also create opportunity. So far, the trend has been in place for over four years now that investors use each pullback as an opportunity to buy stocks on the cheap.

24/7 Wall St. reviews dozens of analyst reports each day to find new ideas for its readers. Some analyst reports cover stocks to buy, but other calls cover stocks to sell or avoid. These are this Friday’s top analyst upgrades, downgrades and initiations.

Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT) was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs.

Air Lease Corp. (NYSE: AL) was raised to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan.
