Lennar: Analysts' Upgrades, Downgrades

Stocks in this article: LEN CREE CCOI

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- CHANGE IN RATINGS

Alcon (ACL) downgraded at Citigroup from Buy to Hold. $165 price target. Valuation call, as the stock will be driven negotiations with NVS.

Cogent (CCOI - Get Report) upgraded at BofA/Merrill to Buy from Neutral on economic recovery and valuation. Price target boosted to $14 from $10.50.

Cree (CREE - Get Report) downgraded at Morgan Joseph from Buy to Hold. Company should post in-line earnings, and the stock is already pricing in growth in the LED lighting market.

Lennar (LEN - Get Report) upgraded at Barclays to Overweight from Equal Weight as analysts believe there is further upside to be seen this year. Price target increased to $20 from $17. 2010 and 2011 EPS estimates set at -$0.07 and $1.04, respectively.

Netsuite (N - Get Report) upgraded at Morgan Stanley from Underweight to Equal-weight. Industry trends have improved and the stock has shed its premium valuation.

Spectra Energy (SE - Get Report) initiated at BofA/Merrill with a Buy rating and $24.50 price target. Favorable pricing and processing spreads, analysts said.
