Oppenheimer upgraded shares of casino operator Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) from Underperform to Perform. The stock has gained more than sixty percent over the last two months, and it appears that the upgrade is more of a reaction to the share appreciation than anything else. With the upgrade, the firm raised its price target from $36 per share all the way up to $61 per share.
In morning trading, shares of Wynn Resorts gained almost four percent following the upgrade from Oppenheimer.
And JP Morgan upgraded Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) from Neutral to Overweight citing regulatory proposals that would favor the investment bank more than peers. With the upgrade, the firm raised its price target modestly from $33 per share up to $36, and reaffirmed its 2009 EPS estimates of three cents per share.
Shares of Morgan Stanley edged higher Wednesday morning, gaining a little more than one percent so far.
