Seacor upgraded at JP Morgan: CKH was upgraded from Neutral to Overweight, JP Morgan said. Core businesses should continue to perform well, because of strong demand and tight capacity. Estimates also increased.

Cognizant Tech rated new Outperform at Credit Suisse: Credit Suisse said it is initiating coverage on CTSH with an Outperform rating. Believes environment for offshore remains strong and company's strong brand name and its investments in sales should lead to strong revenue. Sets $80 target price.

Corning rated new Outperform at Credit Suisse: Credit Suisse said it is initiating coverage on GLW with an Outperform rating. Believes LCD TV cycle is only in second inning. Sets $24 target price.
