Allied Domecq's price recommendation has been raised. Credit Suisse First Boston today upped its rating on the British spirits company to 415 pence from 380p, but kept its stock rating at "neutral."

No reason for the change was given.

Late last month, Panmure, part of investment bank Lazard, raised its stance on Allied Domecq to "buy" from "hold" and upped its target price on the British stock to 470 pence from 395p.
