Activision Blizzard (ATVI) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Alexia Quadrani saying the stock is down 45% from an all-time high in early October, and now trades at 16.5 times forward consensus earnings, compared to 25.5 times and 23.0 times on average over the prior one and three year periods. 2. Bristol-Myers (BMY) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Alex Arfaei saying the risk-reward on the stock at current price "seems attractive." 3. Hostess Brands (TWNK) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan analyst Ken Goldman saying by this time next year, today's two major headwinds - lost business with Walmart (WMT) and the "EBITDA-hemorrhaging" Cloverhill acquisition - will be lapped and potentially become tailwinds. 4. Spirit Airlines (SAVE) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at with analyst Jose Caiado De Sousa saying after a "massive" Q4 unit revenue guidance boost last week, the analyst sees further upside in the equity into H1 of 2019, with expected continued momentum in non-ticket revenue production amid a lower oil environment and a benign competitive backdrop. 5.
