Baird upgraded Calgon Carbon Corp. (NYSE: CCC) from Neutral to Outperform with a price target of $19.00 (from $16.00) as several drivers come together.

Analyst Ben Kallo commented, "We believe 2017 estimates (excluding CECA acquisition) are calibrated correctly, and CCC could exceed expectations with higher-than-expected Mercury, municipal, and industrial market demand. Additionally, we believe the recent IMO ratification of the Ballast Water convention should drive growth in equipment sales for 5-7 years, beginning in 2018. We continue to see increasing interest in water-related names given recent headlines, and believe CCC will attract incremental investors as a water-adjacent play."
