On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Macy's (M) downgraded to Neutral at Northcoast by analyst Jeff Stein, who said the Q1 earnings call produced more questions than answers. The analyst added that sales were surprisingly weak and inventories are too high. 2. General Electric (GE) resumed with an Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst C. Stephen Tusa saying the current risk/reward on the shares is unfavorable given the stubbornly high earnings expectations, weak underlying earnings quality and a premium valuation. 3. CPI Card Group (PMTS) downgraded to Neutral at Goldman by analyst James Schneider, who believes fundamentals are unlikely to recover until Q4 at the earliest and execution will need to improve before the stock can move higher. CPI Card Group was also downgraded to Market Perform at BMO Capital , to Neutral at Baird and to Sector Perform at CIBC. 4. Quintiles (Q) and IMS Health (IMS) downgraded to Market Perform at Wells Fargo by analysts Tim Evans and Jamie Stockton. Evans said recent checks with contacts have cast doubt on the strategic rationale with the company's merger with IMS Health (IMS). 5. Minerals Technologies (MTX) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Quintiles offers compelling risk/reward, says UBS
UBS said Quintiles (Q) shares offer a compelling risk/reward. Investors are under-appreciating the near-term strength in Quintiles' business and the potential for its merger with IMS Health (IMS) to provide significant competitive advantages, said the firm, which reiterated its Buy rating and $78 price target on Quintiles shares.

Buy
Quintiles initiated with a Buy at Goldman
Goldman analyst Robert Jones removed his Not Rated designation and added Quintiles to the Buy list with a $94 price target. Jones thinks the strong CRO industry backdrop, modest improvements in win and conversion rates will result in upside to estimates/guidance.
