Four big pharmaceutical stocks are rated Buy by top Wall Street firms and look like very good ideas for investors, especially now that the market is overbought and the slow seasonal market months are right around the corner. They are classic defensive names that will hold up much better than crowded momentum stocks when the inevitable correction comes.

Tuesday’s early top analyst upgrades and downgrades included Airbnb, Krispy Kreme, Old Dominion Freight Line, Planet Fitness, Square, Workday and XPO Logistics. Analyst calls seen later in the day were on Exxon Mobil, First Solar, Tesla and more.
