Frank's International (FI) was initiated with a buy rating and $33 price target at UBS. The company has industry leading margins, exposure to attractive offshore markets and balance sheet strength, UBS said.

HCA (HCA) was upgraded at Mizuho to buy from neutral. $51 price target. Company should benefit from health care reform, Mizuho said.
