On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tesla (TSLA) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman with analyst David Tamberrino saying he sees incremental risk to Tesla's business related to management's willingness to deploy capital for M&A, and he believes that any delay in the company's new Model 3 launch will be detrimental to shares. 2. JPMorgan (JPM) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Sandler O'Neill with analyst Jeffery Harte citing relative share outperformance. 3. Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc with analyst Jessica Schmidt saying the elevated promotions add to other headwinds, including the fact that the teen space is "overstored" and faces soft consumer demand and weak tourism. 4. American Express (AXP) downgraded to Reduce from Neutral at Nomura with analyst Bill Carcache saying the combination of weaker than expected revenues and higher than expected expenses will weigh on the shares. 5. Lowe's (LOW) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Cleveland Research. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Autos and Autos Parts sector downgraded to Cautious from Neutral at Goldman
Goldman analyst David Tamberrino downgraded the Autos and Auto Parts sector to Cautious from Neutral saying the US Auto cycle peaked in 2015 and is being held up by increasing OEM incentives. The analyst said OEM earnings will decline in 2017/2018 as negative pricing and lower production pressure North American results, but expects suppliers' earnings to hold up longer. The analyst sees upside to Delphi (DLPH) and Harman (HAR) given exposure to secular growth areas and upside to Goodyear Tire (GT) given secular HVA tire growth. Tamberrino downgraded Lear (LEA) to Sell citing elevated expectations and valuation, cut BorgWarner (BWA) to Neutral on valuation, downgraded Tesla (TSLA) to Neutral on execution risk and capital deployment, and upgraded AutoNation (AN) to Neutral given a more defensive business.

Tesla downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman
Goldman analyst David Tamberrino downgraded Tesla to Neutral and lowered his price target to $185 from $240. Tamberrino sees incremental risk to Tesla's business related to management's willingness to deploy capital for M&A, and he believes that any delay in the company's new Model 3 launch will be detrimental to shares. The analyst said there is room for downward estimate revisions as volume ramps slower and spending grows. Tamberrino's 2016 earnigns estimate of (59c) is above the Street's (93c), but estimates for 2017 through 2019 are on average 48% below consensus.

Review process of SolarCity acquisition may be delayed, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch believes the SEC review process of Tesla's (TSLA) acquisition of SolarCity (SCTY) could be delayed due to recent activity, especially new litigation. Further, the analyst believes extension to the timeline is likely to work against the deal given the risk of ongoing "collaboration to trigger gun-jumping rules." Rusch reiterates a Perform rating on Tesla's shares.

Kallo thinks a delivery number above 20,000 vehicles will be viewed as positive and believes "shorts may return" to Tesla after the delivery announcement as the company's acquisition of SolarCity (SCTY)progresses.

Going into the Q3 results for U.S. banks, O'Connor likes JPMorgan (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC) and is cautious on Fifth Third (FITB).

Citi analyst Paul Lejuez upgraded Macy's (M) to Buy saying an attractive free cash flow and dividend yield makes the risk/reward attractive at current levels.
