BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP)
According to a note out of Macquarie, its analysts have retained their outperform rating and lifted their price target on this mining giant’s shares to $56.00.

Orocobre Limited (ASX: ORE)
Another note out of Macquarie reveals that its analysts have retained their outperform rating and lifted their price target on this lithium miner’s shares to $11.80.

Webjet Limited (ASX: WEB)
Analysts at UBS have retained their buy rating and lifted their price target on this online travel agent’s shares to $6.85.
