Upgrades

America Movil receives two enhancements.

BofA Securities raised America Movil (NYSE:AMX) (BMV:AMXB) to Buy from Neutral on Thursday, closely following UBS’s upgrade to Buy from Neutral with a price objective of $22.00 (down from $25.00) on Wednesday.

UBS said on Wednesday that the firm is too cheap to ignore due to improved operations, stronger cash conversion, and attractive valuation multiples: “Since August, we’ve seen (a) MXN -6%, (b) AMX losing ground in the MSCI, and (c) worsening macro sentiment in MX (IPC -7%).” As a result, AMX shares declined 20% during the same time period,” the analysts noted.
Following an almost 3% gain in yesterday’s trade, shares were marginally down in the premarket.

O’Reilly Automotive upgraded ahead of third-quarter earnings.

O’Reilly Automotive (NASDAQ:ORLY) shares were up more than 1% in pre-market trading Thursday after Citi upgraded the stock to Buy from Neutral and increased its price objective to $1,040.00 from $983.00.
On October 25, the corporation will report its Q3/23 earnings. The consensus expectation for EPS is $10.31 and revenue is $4.06 billion.

Orange gains as a result of BofA’s double-upgrade

Orange (NYSE:ORAN) shares gained more than 2% on Wednesday after BofA upgraded the firm to Buy from Underperform and boosted its price objective to $13 from $8.80.
Several thematic drivers and financial profiles that investors prefer in the European telecom sector, according to the analysts, include better competitive trends, a road to lower investment needs, in-market consolidation chances, infrastructure ownership, and a path to increased dividend returns.

The stock of Olaplex has risen as a result of the Barclays upgrade.

Shares of Olaplex (NASDAQ:OLPX) rose more than 5% on Wednesday after Barclays upgraded the business from Underweight to Equalweight.
Analysts believe Olaplex can stabilize its operations, which will likely prevent the stock’s further decline. However, they believe it will be difficult to see considerable stock appreciation from this point forward.
