Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Okta (OKTA) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Sandler with analyst Rob Owens saying strength in last night's Q3 results drives confidence in the company's growth opportunity. 2. eBay (EBAY) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Kunal Madhukar thinking the Street is underestimating the company's potential from advertising, especially as it recently added three new ad units versus only promoted listings previously, including offsite ads "which will not be constrained by inventory." 3. Argenx (ARGX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Kepler Cheuvreux with analyst Daan Vandenberk saying the company is on the brink of launching its first commercial product, the first-in-class FcRn inhibitor and potential blockbuster, efgartigimod. 4. Autoliv (ALV) upgraded to Outperform from Peer Perform at Wolfe Research with analyst Rod Lache saying Autoliv is among the best positioned auto suppliers for earnings upside in a production recovery given underlying cost savings. 5. Snowflake (SNOW) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Citi with analyst Tyler Radke saying Snowflake's growth is at an "inflection point" following the "very strong" Q3 report.

Wolfe Research analyst Rod Lache upgraded Autoliv to Outperform from Peer Perform with a $125 price target, representing 30% upside potential. Autoliv is among the best positioned auto suppliers for earnings upside in a production recovery given underlying cost savings, said Lache, who believes that underlying profitability trends have been much better than they appeared since 2019 and now expects the company's improvement to become "much more apparent." He also likes the conservative assumptions underpinning the company's targets, Lache added.

Autoliv aims to grow sales organically by 4%-6% per year beyond 2024 » 05:3111/1611/16/21
The company said at its…
The company said at its capital markets day, "We are updating our growth targets. For the coming three years, i.e. 2022-2024, we expect to grow organically* by around 4 percentage points more than light vehicle production (LVP) growth per year, on average. In addition, we introduce a long-term growth target beyond 2024, where we aim to grow sales organically by 4-6% per year, over time. This is based on growth coming from safety content per vehicle, LVP and from adjacent areas, now organized in the Mobility Safety Solutions product line. Content per vehicle growth is expected to be driven by continued updates of government regulations and crash test ratings, highly safety focused societies and the new opportunities that come from new vehicle interiors. For 2022 to 2024, we target a 12% adjusted operating margin. This is based on an assumption of a stabilized global LVP of at least 85 million and that raw materials headwinds do not have a greater negative impact on the operating margin than it is expected to have in the full year 2021. When our ongoing and planned strategic initiatives are fully implemented, and there is stability in market conditions, the ambition is to further increase our earnings capacity, to an adjusted operating margin* of around 13%."
