Quintiles downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies

Jefferies analyst David Windley downgraded Quintiles (Q) to Hold citing concern over the revenue synergy targets from the IMS merger.

The analyst's top picks in Pharmaceutical Services are Charles River (CRL), INC Research (INCR) and PRA Health (PRAH).
