  • 3M Co Upgraded to "Buy" at Nomura (MMM)

    Nomura Securities upgraded 3M Co (MMM) to "Buy" from "Neutral" before the opening bell on Wednesday, and raised the company's price target. Nomura boosted 3M's price target to $150 from $128, suggesting an 18% upside to the stock's current share price.
