Lowe's draws bearish spread trading

Lowe's draws bearish spread trading. 3.1K Oct 38th 71 puts bought for $1.29, 3.1K Oct 28th 69.5 puts sold at 66c and 3.1K Oct 28th 69 puts sold at 54c. All three legs open and the new spread offers a max payout if shares slide back to $69.5 through the 10/28 expiration. Timing is interesting because it comes one day after an Oct 28th 120 - 125 put spread on Home Depot (HD) was bought to open 6K.

Neutral
Lowe's downgraded on end market demand, execution at Cleveland Research
As previously reported, Cleveland Research downgraded Lowe's to Neutral from Buy. Analyst led by Eric Bosshard's work suggest a moderation in demand in the building product categories generally and in homecenter categories over the last 4-5 months. He sees Lowe's struggling to sustain the upside execution needed to post growth ahead of Street expectations and has concerns with diversification efforts and would prefer the company focus on improving execution in its core US business.

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.
