FBI arrests NSA contractor over alleged theft of classified codes, NY Times says

The FBI secretly arrested an NSA contractor recently and is looking into whether he stole and disclosed classified computer codes made to hack into the networks of foreign governments, the New York Times reports, citing several senior law enforcement and intelligence officials. The information which is believed to be stolen by the contractor, who worked for Booz Allen hamilton, seems to be different in nature than the information acquired by Edward Snowden in 2013, the report says. The arrested person is suspected of taking the "source code" developed by the agency to break into computer systems of countries such as Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea, the report says.

Market Perform
Booz Allen downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Brian Gesuale downgraded Booz Allen to Market Perform saying near-term consensus expectations are overly optimistic in terms of growth, despite management cautioning about needing time to staff recent contract wins and incremental investments required to drive long-term growth. The analyst believes near-term share appreciation may be capped near-term with shares trading at a healthy premium to peers.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. AstraZeneca (AZN) downgraded to Sell at Goldman saying the risk/reward is negative due to valuation and high pipeline expectations. 2. Avon Products (AVP) downgraded to Neutral at Piper Jaffray by analyst Stephanie Wissink, who said Avon's topline growth now relies almost exclusively on international markets, where economic uncertainty persists. 3. Booz Allen (BAH) downgraded to Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Brian Gesuale saying near-term consensus expectations are overly optimistic in terms of growth, despite management cautioning about needing time to staff recent contract wins and incremental investments required to drive long-term growth. 4. Hertz (HTZ) downgraded to Neutral at Credit Suisse by analyst Anjaneya Singh, who cited lower confidence in the company's outlook following yesterday's Q1 preannouncement. He adds that Hertz indicated that weaker pricing would cause revenue per available car day to decline 2.5%-3.5%. 5. L Brands (LB) downgraded to Neutral at Goldman with analyst Lindsay Drucker Mann saying last week's restructuring announcement will pressure Victoria's Secret near-term comp sales growth, which may result in multiple compression until visibility to comp re-acceleration improves.
