Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Gilead (GILD) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Leerink with analyst Geoffrey Porges saying he's now "outright bearish" on the company's Hepatitis C virus business. 2. J.M. Smucker (SJM) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Robert Moskow saying that while the company raised its cost savings target as expected, he underestimated the hit to sales from difficult comparisons. 3. Discovery (DISCA) and Scripps Networks (SNI) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at MoffettNathanson. 4. Carter's (CRI) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Ike Boruchow saying his quarter-to-date store checks indicate "choppy" retail traffic trends and "deeper" pricing/promotional pressure. 5. Dollar Tree (DLTR) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities with analyst Sam Hudson saying the second half comp inflection expected by consensus is "too demanding" and he expects multiple contraction if Family Dollar does not turn around.
