NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- RATINGS CHANGES
Apple (AAPL) was upgraded at Barclay's to overweight from equal weight. Twelve-month price target is $110. The company beats expectations since March due to Samsung's weakness and increased growth trajectory and brand appeal of the iPhone.

DreamWorks (DWA) was downgraded at B. Riley to neutral from buy. Twelve-month price target is $25. Disappointing box- office results will likely keep a ceiling on the stock, B. Riley said
Brinker (EAT) was upgraded at J.P. Morgan to overweight from neutral. Stock has lagged year to date but has the most incremental upside potential, J.P. Morgan said.
eBay (EBAY) was downgraded at Pacific Crest to sector perform. Company is seeing weak near-term trends and there is downside to estimates, Pacific Crest said.
