Aeropostale (NYSE:ARO): Bank of America Merrill Lynch sees Aeropostale as having a difficult second quarter, but improved fashion and inventory control will result in a margin recovery in the second half of the year.

Dish Network (NASDAQ:DISH): UBS has raised Dish Network’s price target to $54 from $36 due to potential spectrum value, and that the ultimate value will be tied to a transaction involving wireless spectrum. Dish’s most likely partner will be T-Mobile US (NYSE:TMUS), given that it would not need to spend on building out a fifth national network, the firm says, rating the shares at Neutral.
International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM): UBS said IBM’s quarter was mediocre as revenues declined by 3 percent while earnings were aided by a lower tax rate.

It keeps a Buy rating and $235 price target.
