Wells Fargo upgrades Biogen to overweight from equal weight Wells said the biotech company's shares are "too good to ignore" right now. "While the sentiment is at an all-time low, we looked at BIIB objectively to value their assets individually.

"Viewed as a play on providing financial services to Gen Y/Z by the bulls, investor sentiment skews cautious with debate centered around pace of user growth and ability to increase customer monetization with new products to inflect profitability. We are EW as we see NT challenges and lack visibility." Baird upgrades Comerica to neutral from underperform Baird said it likes the "aggressive short case" for regional banks.

Loop reiterates Amazon as buy Loop said it thinks strong Amazon Web Services margin will drive Amazon shares higher. "On the AWS front, we think it is becoming clear that Amazon will not be able to deploy its budget for server capex this year due to supply constraints.
