Intel — Shares of Intel were upgraded to "buy" from "neutral" at Bank of America/Merrill Lynch. Merrill also raised its price target on Intel to $60 from $52. "Trading at just 10x PE, the stock provides attractive exposure to growth trends in cloud computing, A.I., advanced autos, and 5G, with potentially improved data center focus," Merrill said.
