On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wells Fargo (WFC) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst David Long saying the fallout from the unauthorized account openings will result in continued under performance. The analyst said several additional investigations, lawsuits, and fines have been announced, resulting in a still cloudy outlook. 2. Kinder Morgan (KMI) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel analyst Selman Akyol citing valuation. 3. GrubHub (GRUB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst John Egbert citing valuation. 4. Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Evercore ISI with analyst Robert Ottenstein saying reports that Bai Brands is looking for a new owner are credible and could change investor's psychology on the stock and its Allied Brands business. 5. Dollar Tree (DLTR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Cleveland Research with the firm saying sales trends appear to have slowed further at Family Dollar as the company struggles with increased price competition, difficult comps, and strategy headwinds.

Huntington Bancshares upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Matt O'Connor upgraded Huntington Bancshares to Buy saying the 15% pullback in the shares since the FirstMerit (FMER) deal was announced is overdone. The analyst views industry-wide concerns surrounding consumer indirect auto lending as overblown and he raised his price target for Huntington shares to $11.50 from $10.50. 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).

Hold
Kinross Gold upgraded to Hold from Underperform at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Christopher LaFemina upgraded Kinross Gold (KGC) to Hold after his firm increased its gold price forecasts to reflect ongoing elevated macro risk. Investment demand should support the gold price to a near-term peak of at least $1,400/oz, LaFemina tells investors in a research note. He raised his price target for Kinross shares to $6 from $4. LaFemina this morning also upgraded Barrick Gold (ABX) and Randgold Resources (GOLD) to Buy.

Take-Two price target raised to $51 from $45 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson raised his price target for Take-Two Interactive to $51 saying he believes the next iteration of Red Dead will hit in the second half of 2017. The analyst notes that 23% of the 450 console owners his firm surveyed expected that they would buy the game, which would translate into 17M units. Olson keeps an Overweight rating on Take-Two.

August NPD video game software sales rose 1%, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson says August NPD video game software sales were up 1% year-over-year, driven by Sony (SNE) publishing No Man's Sky and Electronic Arts' (EA) Madden NFL 17. The data are most positive for Activision Blizzard (ATVI), which continued to benefit from sell-through of incremental title Overwatch, Olson tells investors in a research note. He believes the monthly numbers are largely irrelevant for Take-Two (TTWO), since NBA 2K17 is due out in September, and GameStop (GME), since the company announced October quarter guidance at the end of August.

July NPD video game software sales dropped 13%, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson notes that July NPD video game software sales were down 13% year-over-year. The analyst attributes the decline to a difficult comparison with sell-through of Batman Arkham Knight the prior year and a bunch of new releases during July 20. Olson views the data as a "slight positive" for GameStop's (GME) July quarter and "irrelevant" for Activision Blizzard (ATVI), Electronic Arts (EA) and Take-Two (TTWO). The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on all four names.
