Analysts' Actions -- Buckle, Conn's, Dover, Ingersoll-Rand, NetApp and More

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- RATINGS CHANGES

Buckle (BKE) was upgraded at Keybanc Capital Markets to sector weight from underweight. No price target. Few reasons to get overly bullish on the near-term earnings growth outlook, Keybanc Capital Markets said. Meaningful near-term earnings compression is unlikely, however, so the rating is neutral, Keybanc Capital Markets added.

China Unicom (Hong Kong) (CHU) was upgraded to buy at TheStreet Ratings. You can view the full analysis from the report here: CHU Ratings Report.

Conn's (CONN) was downgraded at Oppenheimer to perform from outperform. Valuation call, as the stock is up more than 30% in the past couple of weeks, Oppenheimer said.

Dover (DOV) was upgraded at Deutsche Bank to hold from sell. Valuation call, based on an $81 price target, Deutsche Bank said.

Ingersoll-Rand (IR) was upgraded at Argus to buy from hold. Twelve-month price target is $86. Company should benefit from higher domestic demand, especially in the climate segment, Argus said.

NetApp (NTAP) was downgraded at Argus to hold from buy. Core branded business is deteriorating, Argus said.

New York Times Co. (NYT) was downgraded to hold at TheStreet Ratings. You can view the full analysis from the report here: NYT Ratings Report.
