Analysts are weighing in on casino interest Wynn Resorts, Limited (NASDAQ:WYNN), retail interest Michael Kors Holdings Ltd (NYSE:KORS), and steel and mining stock ArcelorMittal SA (ADR) (NYSE:MT). Here's a quick roundup of today's bullish brokerage notes on WYNN, KORS, and MT.

  • WYNN was upgraded to "buy" at UBS -- which also set a price target of $95 -- but the shares are currently 3.2% lower at $82.67. Wynn Resorts, Limited is up 23.5% so far this year, thanks in part to a strong earnings report last month. Still, nine out of 14 brokerage firms rate the stock a lukewarm "hold," and 21.8% of WYNN's available float is sold short -- pointing to potential buying power on the sidelines, should more analysts or short sellers abandon ship.
  • Nomura raised its price target on KORS to $64 from $60, boosting the stock 0.2% to $57.30. Michael Kors Holdings Ltd has already added 42.7% in 2016 -- with February's impressive earnings helping the shares -- and last week topped its 80-week moving average for the first time since August 2014. And today's rally might have some option traders sweating. At the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX, KORS has a 50-day put/call volume ratio of 1.25 -- higher than 99% of all readings taken in the last 12 months.
  • MT is 4.8% higher at $5.08, thanks to a broad rally in mining names and after Jefferies upgraded the stock to a "hold" and raised its price target to $4.50 -- still a discount to ArcelorMittal SA's current value. The stock has been on a downtrend for most of the past year, but a rally in the last month -- including an ongoing six-day winning streak -- has MT up 15% year-to-date. In fact, the equity has outperformed the S&P 500 Index (SPX) by 27 percentage points over the last three months, but not a single analyst rates MT better than a "hold." Still, option traders appear optimistic -- at the ISE, CBOE, and PHLX, the security's 50-day call/put volume ratio of 4.88 is in the 93rd percentile of its annual range.
