Atlas Resource (ARP +4.3%), BreitBurn Energy (BBEP +4.8%), Atlas Energy (ATLS +3.9%) and LinnCo (LNCO +7.5%) are upgraded to Outperform at Baird after last week's losses in upstream MLPs. Specific issues remain - Linn Energy's SEC inquiry and uncertainty around the Berry merger, EVEP's leverage and Utica sales disappointments - but on balance the firm sees a good opening for longs.
