Marchex shares likely to trade near cash levels, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster believes shares of Marchex will likely trade near cash levels after the company lowered its guidance for the back half of 2016 by 15%. Munster expects cash per share to exit 2016 at $2.45 or slightly higher. Marchex should return to cash generation in 2017 as new products and new sales headcount additions begin to be accretive, the analyst contends. He lowered his price target for the shares to $5 from $7 and keeps an Overweight rating on the name.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Cowen analyst Charles Neivert downgraded Potash (POT), Mosaic (MOS), Intrepid Potash (IPI) and CF Industries (CF), all to Underperform, citing the risk of further deterioration in the grain environment. He also cites the belief that nutrient prices and margins still have room to fail. Neivert said an increase in U.S. corn acreage to 93.6M acres, combined with likely gains in Brazilian and Argentine output, would likely result in a very sizable drop in both corn price and 2017 acreage. 2. PepsiCo (PEP) downgraded to Hold at Stifel citing valuation and its belief that the stock probably lacks "structural or growth-related catalysts." 3. Lennox (LII) downgraded to Sector Weight at KeyBanc with analyst Jeffrey Hammond saying he expects the stock to trade more in line with the peers after a period of multiple expansion. 4. Omnicom (OMC) downgraded to Market Perform at Wells Fargo by analyst Peter Stabler, who said expectations for margin expansion are priced into the shares at current levels. 5. Graco (GGG) downgraded to Neutral at SunTrust citing valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
