Zoetis outlook positive despite cattle headwinds, says Stifel

Stifel analyst Jonathan Block says that Zoetis is facing a number of headwinds in cattle, including difficult comps and unfavorable cattle and milk prices. However, he thinks the company will be boosted in Q4 and into fiscal 2017 by easing comps and its "competitive" vaccine offering. Block says that the outlook for the company's companion animal and swine offerings remain positive, and he thinks the company's EPS can beat expectations over the next 12-24 months. Block keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on the today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Zoetis (ZTS) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi by analyst Liav Abraham, who cited valuation, as she views the stock as fairly valued at current levels. The stock has significantly outperformed the specialty pharma group year-to-date, Abraham said, adding that she remains constructive on the company's fundamentals. The analyst increased her price target for shares to $50 from $46. 2. AbbVie (ABBV) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform by BMO Capital, which cut its target on shares to $66 from $70. In the wake of events at ASCO, disclosures at AbbVie's R&D day, and statements from Eli Lilly (LLY) and Pfizer (PFE), the firm is more concerned about the longer term outlook for AbbVie's immunology franchise, especially Humira. 3. AmeriGas (APU) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS by analyst Shneur Gershuni, who said the stock looks relatively expensive at current levels and that its yield is lower than competitors. The analyst, who kept a $39 price target on shares, also downgraded Ferrellgas Partners (FGP) to Sell and Suburban Propane (SPH) to Neutral. 4. J.M. Smucker (SJM) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies by analyst Akshay Jagdale, who raised his price target for shares to $143 from $140. The analyst views the stock's risk/reward as balanced at current levels amid rising commodity costs and the management transition. 5. Mattress Firm (MFRM) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Raymond James by analyst Budd Bugatch following the Q1 report and conference call. The analyst said the Sleepy's integration, a move to a new corporate headquarters, and merchandising push to more proprietary products have increased near-term earnings risk.

AbbVie remains Jefferies' Top Pick in Global Pharma
Jefferies analyst Jeffrey Holford says AbbVie (ABBV) remains his firm's Top Pick in Global Pharmaceuticals, followed by Eli Lilly (LLY), Novartis (NVS), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Zoetis (ZTS). The analyst this morning upgraded GSK to Buy from Hold. Holford also remains positive on Roche (RHHBY), Abbott (ABT) and Pfizer (PFE). The analyst's least preferred names are Novo Nordisk (NVO), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Merck (MRK). The Q2 earnings season offers "few clear beat and raise" stories and looks weakest for AstraZeneca (AZN) against preliminary consensus, Holford tells investors in a pre-earnings research note.
