Williams Cos. (WMB) +1.2% premarket after UBS upgrades shares to Buy with a $36 price target, up from $30. Analysts cite WMB's earnings boost from the planned $2.5B acquisition of Caiman Eastern Midstream by 72%-owned Williams Partners (WPZ), which will position WMB as "one of the top players in the Marcellus and Utica shales."
