Suburban Propane downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Janney Capital
Janney Capital analyst Michael Gyure assumed coverage on Suburban Propane with a Neutral rating from a Buy rating and lowered its price target to $30 from $33. The analyst said the Street is potentially modeling in significant year-over-year volume and pricing recoveries in the propane business for fiscal 1H 2017 that may not be achievable if this year's winter season is not significantly colder than last years.

Suburban Propane downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Janney Capital
Janney Capital analyst Michael Gyure assumed coverage of Suburban Propane with a Neutral rating and $30 fair value estimate, down from the firm's prior Buy rating and $33 fair value estimate. Gyure believes Suburban's unique infrastructure assets generate the most significant earnings and cash flow during the winter season and rates the units as a Neutral as we enter the seasonally lower fiscal second half. If there is not a significantly colder winter than last year, he believes Suburban will have to sell non-core assets or significantly reduce its cost structure.

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.
