NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Box (BOX) - Get Report shares are surging 4.71% to $13.55 in pre-market trading on Friday after analysts at Canaccord Genuity upgraded the company to "buy" from "hold."

Analysts' bullish outlook is also based on the company's upcoming announcement next week on its new features, according to the firm's note.

Additionally, the company is showing a strong performance following its IPO back in January 2015.
