Wednesday's Top Analysts Upgrades and Downgrades; Allstate, Booking, Five9, GE, Nucor, PayPal, Trade Desk, Zillow and More

The futures were lower Wednesday, after stunning inflation data gave the risk-on troops a dose of reality on what is becoming a very alarming situation. All the major indexes closed lower, while investors fled to Treasury bonds as yields plummeted across the curve. Tuesday, the Labor Department’s Producer Price Index, which measures wholesale prices, rose 0.6% in October, translating into an 8.6% increase year over year, the highest annual pace in records going back nearly 11 years.

With the S&P 500 posting a record close on Monday for the eighth straight session, which marked the best run for the index since 1997, it seems more and more likely that something has to give, and all eyes today will be on the release of the Consumer Price Index data, which could be a flashpoint.
