Top Analyst Upgrades and Downgrades: Applied Materials, Clorox, KB Home, Kraft Heinz, NetApp, Roku, Under Armour and More

Opendoor Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: OPEN) was started with an Overweight rating and a $42 price target at KeyBanc Capital Markets. The much lower $32.50 consensus is closer to Thursday’s close at $31.18.

Roku Inc. (NASDAQ: ROKU) saw its price target raised to $400 from $240 at Pivotal Research Group. That compares with a much lower $353.07 consensus target. The closing share price on Thursday was well above both figures at $452.99.

Sabre Corp. (NASDAQ: SABR) was raised at Deutsche Bank from Hold to Buy with a $17 price target. The consensus estimate is much lower at $12.20. Thursday’s close of $12.72 was up almost 6% on the day. Shares followed through in premarket action, up another 4%.

Tempur Sealy International Inc. (NYSE: TPX) was named as the Bull of the Day at Zacks, which said that it posted blowout fourth-quarter results that helped push its stock price to record highs. And that’s just the start of why it is the Bull of the Day. Shares most recently closed at $32.01 and have a consensus price target of $40.13.

Trade Desk Inc. (NASDAQ: TTD) saw its price target raised to $1,010 from $950 at Pivotal Research Group after posting strong earnings. The much lower consensus target is $760.47. The stock closed at $846.50 on Thursday.

Under Armour Inc. (NYSE: UAA) was raised at Oppenheimer from Perform to Outperform with a $30 price target. The consensus target for the apparel giant is $22.08. Shares closed on Thursday at $22.28.

WD-40 Co. (NASDAQ: WDFC) was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at D.A. Davidson, which has a $353 pride target. The consensus target is $301.50. The final trade for Thursday was posted at $319.38.


With the economy reopening and travel returning, as well as the recent spike in the price of oil, one top analyst sees these five Buy-rated energy stocks as perhaps having much higher upside potential.

Thursday’s early top analyst upgrades and downgrades included CrowdStrike, Honda, KB Home, McAfee, STMicroelectronics, Tilray and Wells Fargo. Analyst calls seen later in the day were on Cheesecake Factory, Seagate Technologies, Micron Technology and more.
