Maxwell Technologies (NASDAQ:MXWL) was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a buy rating. The firm currently has $7.00 target price on the stock. According to Zacks, “Maxwell leads the growing ultracapacitor market and benefits from increasing demand for its utility infrastructure, renewable energy, public transportation and space programs. It is also making progress in the high-voltage capacitor market. This product line provides the company’s foundational cash flow and also the opportunity for steady long-term growth in the solid $150 million addressable market by 2021. Moreover, Maxwell signed a joint development agreement with a leading global automotive OEM as well as a global tier one automotive supplier, to develop a specific electric vehicle platform. Further, research and development forms an integral part of the company’s growth strategy. However, short-term changes in the Chinese government’s deployment strategy for wind turbines are affecting Maxwell’s wind market revenues.”

Navistar International Corporation (NYSE:NAV) had its neutral rating reissued by analysts at UBS AG. UBS AG currently has a $39.00 target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of $31.00.

Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “As one of the top largest U.S. defense contractors, Northrop continues to enjoy strong presence in Air Force, Space & Cyber Security programs. Moreover, its product innovation and focus on strengthening its ISR wing will help maintain a stable earnings stream amid the rapidly changing needs of the defense landscape. The company maintains a strong balance sheet and steady cash flow that offer substantial financial flexibility. However, challenging economic and political factors have been raising concerns. Moreover, too much dependence on fixed-price contracts remains a concern for the stock. Also the company underperformed the broader industry in past one year.”

Novo Nordisk A/S (NYSE:NVO) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Novo Nordisk’s second-quarter results topped earnings, but missed revenue estimates. The company has a strong pipeline, primarily focusing on therapeutic proteins within insulin, GLP-1, blood clotting factors and human growth hormone. The company has a strong presence in the Diabetes care market with a global value market share of 27%. The segment is driven by strong performance of drugs like Victoza, Tresiba, Saxenda and Xultophy among others. Novo Nordisk’s stock movement has outperformed the industry. However, we believe continued growth from Victoza and Tresiba as well as higher contributions from Saxenda and Xultophy will be partly offset by the impact of lower realized prices in the U.S., loss of exclusivity for products in hormone replacement therapy, intensifying competition within the diabetes and biopharmaceuticals markets and macroeconomic conditions in many markets under International Operations.”

Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL) had its buy rating reissued by analysts at Bank of America Corporation. They currently have a $62.00 target price on the stock.

Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL) had its overweight rating reaffirmed by analysts at Wells Fargo & Company. They currently have a $62.50 target price on the stock.

Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL) had its overweight rating reiterated by analysts at Credit Suisse Group. They currently have a $62.00 price target on the stock.

Public Service Enterprise Group (NYSE:PEG) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Public Service Enterprise’s consistent capital-investment plans backed by a stable liquidity position have the potential to boost its performance. Moreover, Public Service Enterprise boasts a solid portfolio of regulated and non-regulated utility assets that offer stable earnings and significant long-term growth potential. Apart from focusing on transmission and distribution infrastructure, the company is also expanding its renewable assets. Further, its share price outperformed the broader industry in past one year. However, environmental issues, such as restrictions on carbon dioxide emissions and other pollutants produced by Public Service Enterprise’s fossil units, may enhance compliance-related costs for the company.”

Polaris Industries (NYSE:PII) had its hold rating reiterated by analysts at Stifel Nicolaus. They currently have a $98.00 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of $87.00.

Pearson plc (LON:PSON) had its sell rating reissued by analysts at Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (The). They currently have a GBX 495 ($6.67) price target on the stock.

RMP Energy (TSE:RMP) was upgraded by analysts at Macquarie from a neutral rating to an outperform rating. They currently have C$0.85 price target on the stock, up from their previous price target of C$0.65.

Rotork p.l.c. (LON:ROR) was upgraded by analysts at UBS AG to a buy rating. UBS AG currently has GBX 295 ($3.98) target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of GBX 255 ($3.44).

Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Raytheon is one of the best-positioned large-cap defense players due to its non-platform-centric focus. Thanks to its wide range of combat-proven defense products, the company continues to receive scrumptious orders from both Pentagon as well as foreign allies of the nation. In particular, its Patriot missile-defense systems have been seeing increased number of buyers, lately.  Also, Raytheon’s stock outperformed the broader industry on a year-to-date basis. Moreover, the company is a strong cash generator, which allows it to pay attractive dividend per share to its shareholders. On the flip side, factors like tough competition, budget deficits and political uncertainty continue to be major headwinds for Raytheon. Moreover, the company's over dependence on fixed-price contracts remains a concern.”

Stride Gaming PLC (LON:STR) had its house stock rating reissued by analysts at Shore Capital.

United States Steel Corporation (NYSE:X) had its buy rating reiterated by analysts at Jefferies Group LLC.
