Friday's Top Analyst Upgrades Downgrades: Boeing, Disney, Gilead Sciences, IBM, Rivian, Roblox, Visa and More

Roblox Inc. (NYSE: RBLX): Goldman Sachs stuck with a Neutral rating on the shares and has a $39 price target. That compares with the much higher $52.89 consensus target and Thursday’s $28.58 closing print, which was up almost 20% for the day. Despite it posting a big sales miss, bargain hunters are very keen on the shares at this level.

VICI Properties Inc. (NYSE: VICI): Baird remains very bullish on the gaming real estate investment trust and has a $33 price target objective. That compares with the higher $35.08 consensus and Thursday’s close at $27.44.

Visa Inc. (NYSE: V): Baird reiterated an Outperform rating on the legacy credit card heavyweight. The $290 price objective is higher than the $268.92 consensus target. The last trade for Thursday was reported at $193.97.

Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) Goldman Sachs reiterated a Buy rating on the media and theme park giant but slashed the $205 target price to $148. The consensus target is near $159, but shares were last seen Thursday at $104.31, which is down a stunning 47% this year.

Yeti Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: YETI): Though Baird reiterated an Outperform rating on the cooler heavyweight, it also lowered the $90 target price to $70. The consensus target is $80.29. The $45.30 a share final trade on Thursday was over 3% higher on the day.

ZipRecruiters Inc. (NYSE: ZIP): Goldman Sachs reiterated a Buy rating after solid results, and it has a $30 price target. The consensus target is $33. The last trade on Thursday was reported at $18.88, up a massive 15% after a solid increase in first-quarter revenue.
