Analysts are weighing in on streaming media giant Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX), tech stock International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM), and biotech concern Genocea Biosciences Inc (NASDAQ:GNCA). Here's a quick roundup of today's bullish brokerage notes on NFLX, IBM, and GNCA.
 
  • RBC increased its price target on IBM to $155 from $135 -- more in line with the stock's Thursday close of $151.45. International Business Machines Corp. is ahead 10% so far in 2016, rallying about 30% from its mid-February five-year low of $116.90. However nine out of 16 analysts following IBM still rate it a "hold" or worse. And at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), the equity's 10-day put/call volume ratio of 0.89 is higher than three-fourths of all readings in the last 12 months. And unwinding of this lingering bearish sentiment in the face of IBM's strong technical performance could help keep its rally going.
  • After nearly doubling in value on Thursday to settle at $7.74 -- thanks to some upbeat drug data --  GNCA received a price-target hike at Stifel, to $13 from $11. The shares are set to drop 4% at the open, after yesterday's surge sent Genocea Biosciences Inc's 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) to 78 -- in overbought territory. Still, an unwinding of bearish sentiment from short sellers could soon help the stock add to its now 47% year-to-date lead. In fact, it would take nearly four weeks to cover all of GNCA's shorted shares, at the stock's average pace of trading.
