Top Analyst Upgrades and Downgrades: Bluebird, Celgene, Coach,, Gold Fields, Nike, Rite Aid, Vipshop, Waste Management and More

Stocks were indicated to open marginally higher on Friday after a two swing days this week. Thursday saw a large and broad sell-off, after a solid rally on Wednesday. Even though this bull market is well over eight years old, equity investors keep finding myriad new reasons to buy any major pullback or sell-off.
