In a report released Monday, Macquarie analyst Aldo Mazzaferro upgraded Cliffs Natural Resources (NYSE: CLF) from Underperform to Neutral and raised its price target from $10 to $17.

The $17 price target is given by EPS 2014/2015/2016 estimates of $0.30/$0.45/$0.70 from its previous $10/$0.25/$0.45, respectively.
