On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Yelp (YELP) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Peter Stabler saying consensus expectations "embed too much optimism" for 2017 and 2018. 2. Starbucks (SBUX) downgraded to Mixed from Positive at OTR Global with the firm citing manager checks that indicate weaker-than-expected food and Frappuccino sales, impact from poor weather, and cannibalization. 3. SQM (SQM) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi analyst Juan Tavarez saying the risk/reward is unfavorable with the stock up 42% year-to-date. 4. Robert Half (RHI) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with the firm citing expectations of weaker fundamentals, FX headwinds, and increased concerns around the timing of the cycle. 5. MetLife (MET) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Yaron Kinar saying balance sheet risk is enhanced ahead of the company's separation and in light of low yields. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Outperform
MetLife coverage resumed at Wells Fargo
As noted earlier, Wells Fargo resumed coverage of MetLife with an Outperform rating. The firm says that , in the wake of the company's decision to separate its retail business, it "should be less impacted by equity market movement and interest rates." As a result, the firm thinks that the stock's multiple should rise, while the company should require less capital, enabling it to buy back its shares. Wells set a $51-$53 price target on the stock.
