On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Bruker (BRKR) downgraded to Underperform and Market Perform at BofA/Merrill and Leerink, respectively. Leerink analyst Dan Leonard cited the recent rally in the shares and his belief that margin expansion in 2017 and beyond could be more challenging than implied in the current stock price. BofA/Merrill cited valuation and lack of upside to FY!6 organic revenue growth targets. 2. Capital One (COF) downgraded to Underperform at Oppenheimer by analyst Ben Chittenden, who said the company's borrower base is facing headwinds. He notes that 25% of Capital One's loan book is made up of exposure to consumers with FICO scores under 660, energy, or taxi cab medallion companies. 3. Hormel Foods (HRL) downgraded to Underweight at BB&T due to the company's growth to slow in Q4 before dropping off significantly in 2017. BB&T predicts that Hormel's premium multiple will contract if its growth does slow, and it predicts that the stock will deliver a negative return. 4. LPL Financial (LPLA) downgraded to Sell at Goldman by analyst Conor Fitzgerald, who cited relative valuation, slower revenue growth, lack of buyback capacity, and execution risk on the Department of Labor's fiduciary rule. 5. People's United (PBCT) downgraded to Underweight at Morgan Stanley citing valuation, below peer profitability, and weaker loan and earnings growth.
