INITIATION

On The Fly: Top five analyst initiations
Catch up on today's top five analyst initiations with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak initiated Activision Blizzard (ATVI) and Electronic Arts (EA), both with Overweight ratings. The analyst is bullish on the digital gaming shift away from "units sold" to a business model based on users, engagement, and digital monetization. He sees digital in-game offerings resulting in recurring and growth user bases, increased per-game engagement, and further monetization opportunities. 2. AstraZeneca (AZN) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) both initiated with Overweight ratings by Piper Jaffray analyst Richard Purkiss. 3. Achillion (ACHN) initiated with an Outperform by Wedbush analyst Heather Behanna, who set a $13 price target on the shares. 4. Sysco (SYY) initiated with an Underweight at Barclays and $48 price target by analyst Karen Short. 5. Five Below (FIVE), Dollar Tree (DLTR) and Dollar General (DG) all initiated with Equal Weight ratings by Barclays analyst Karen Short. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Underweight
Dollar Tree downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities
Atlantic Equities downgraded Dollar Tree to Underweight with a $68 price target after analyst Sam Hudson visited Family Dollar stores in the Boston area and saw little evidence of a turnaround. With merchandising and pricing continuing to lag peers, and multiple headwinds faced by the lower income consumer, the analyst said the 2H comp inflection expected by consensus is "too demanding" and he expects multiple contraction if Family Dollar does not turn around.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
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.
