11:16 EDTVIAB, VIACBS, Viacom climb following Stifel upgrades
Shares of CBS (CBS) and Viacom (VIA, VIAB) are climbing after research firm Stifel upgraded the stocks to Buy from Hold. CBS owns the CBS network and other entertainment properties. Viacom owns a number of cable networks, including MTV and Nickelodeon. WHAT'S NEW: CBS' NFL rights leave it well-positioned to charge cable companies and other TV providers high fees, Stifel analyst Benjamin Mogil wrote in a note to investors today. Meanwhile, the company's strong ratings and lower production costs reduce its risk, Mogil stated. CBS has more opportunities when it comes to selling its content to Internet TV networks such as Netflix (NFLX), Mogil believes. The analyst set a $65 price target on the shares. Meanwhile, Mogil believes that Viacom should benefit from the adoption of ratings measurements other than Nielsen's (NLSN) tools. Viacom has complained that Nielsen's tools have underestimated its ratings by failing to adequately take into account new types of content consumption, the analyst noted. Viacom's recent expansion into new international markets should also improve its performance, Mogil stated. He set an $89 price target on the shares. ANOTHER TO WATCH: Mogil initiated coverage of Twenty-First Century Fox (FOXA) with a $41 price target and Buy rating, saying that the company is well-positioned to benefit from its wide range of sports programming. He set a $41 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, CBS advanced 2.75% to $55, Viacom gained 2.5% to $68, and Twenty-First Century Fox rose 0.4% to $34.72.

10:37 EDTPMKraft rises after Goldman gets less cautious on food space, ups stock to buy
Shares of Kraft Foods (KRFT) are climbing after Goldman Sachs upgraded the stock to Buy and placed the shares on its Conviction List. WHAT'S NEW: Costs for food makers are declining as commodity prices drop, Goldman Sachs analyst Judy Hong wrote in a note to investors today. Kraft is among the U.S. food companies that benefits the most from lower costs, the analyst stated. Additionally, Kraft's pricing power is one of the strongest in the group and it is heavily exposed to the U.S. economy, the analyst stated. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Hong's upgrade of Kraft was part of a note in which she took a more balanced view of the U.S. consumer staples sector. The analyst upgraded the Food sector to Neutral from Cautious, noting that consumer staples stocks with outsized exposure to the U.S. market should be boosted by strong U.S. growth and more favorable foreign exchange dynamics than their peers. In addition to Kraft, the analyst identified the following stocks as her top picks within the consumer staples sector: Monster Beverage (MNST), Constellation Brands (STZ), Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE), Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR), Freshpet (FRPT), Mead Johnson (MJN), and Estee Lauder (EL). Goldman also upgraded Hershey (HSY), Dr. Pepper Snapple (DPS), and Clorox (CLX), all to Neutral from Sell, downgraded cigarette maker Philip Morris (PM) to Sell from Neutral and downgraded brewer Molson Coors (TAP) to Neutral from Buy. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Kraft climbed 3.7% to $65 per share.
