Analysts' Actions: ACN AMZN FB GS XOM

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- CHANGE IN RATINGS

Accenture (ACN - Get Report) was initiated with a buy rating at UBS. Based on bookings, revenues should see reacceleration, and EPS growth of 17% is expected in the second half of the year, UBS said. Price target is $85.

Actavis (ACT) was upgraded to buy at TheStreet Ratings.

Amazon (AMZN - Get Report) was initiated with a neutral rating at UBS. The company's secular positioning is a positive, but operating costs remain a headwind given investment mode, UBS said. Price target is $275.

Sothebys (BID) was upgraded to buy at TheStreet Ratings.

Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD) was initiated with a neutral rating at Credit Suisse. $92 price target. Acquisitions add risk to the model, Credit Suisse said.
