On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Cal-Maine Foods (CALM) downgraded to Underperform at DA Davidson based on the firm's concerns about industry production levels, the trade balance, current inventory levels and insider selling. 2. LendingClub (LC) downgraded to Underperform at Sterne Agee CRT and to Hold at Stifel after the company announced the resignation of Renaud Laplanche as its Chairman and CEO. 3. L Brands (LB) downgraded to Neutral at UBS by analyst Michael Binetti, who said same-store-sales volatility, elevated execution risk in the core business and "sluggish" industry trends provide less support for the valuation multiple. 4. Workday (WDAY) downgraded to Sell at Brean Capital with analyst Yun Kim saying channel checks indicate that a portion of the company's target customers are expected to undergo a "major accounting change" over the next couple of years, which will make it difficult for them to migrate to a new financial system. 5. Ulta Beauty (ULTA) double downgraded to Market Perform at Raymond James by analyst Joseph Altobello, who cited valuation following the stock's multiple expansion over the past three months. The analyst sees limited near-term upside in the shares. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Hormel Foods added to US Focus List at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse added Hormel Foods (HRL) to the US Focus List, replacing Kellogg (K). The firm Investment Policy Committee said analyst Rob Moskow's FY17 above consensus estimate reflects his view that the Street underestimates earnings momentum, is best positioned to capitalize on increased demand for convenient protein products and deflationary meat cost trends, higher margins from its mix to value-added products, and high short interest that will dissipate. Moskow rates Hormel an Outperform with a $43 price target.
