H&E Equipment downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS

UBS analyst Steven Fisher downgraded H&E Equipment (HEES) to Sell saying his firm's geospatial analysis indicates rental business competition between the company and United Rentals (URI) has increased over the past year. The analyst believes H&E's rental business could remain under pressure as Gulf Coast project spending slows while a crane recovery is unlikely in 2017 amid a muted construction growth cycle. Fisher lowered his price target for H&E shares to $14.44 from $17.50.
