Nanometrics, Lam Research downgraded to Sector Weight at Pacific Crest
Pacific Crest analyst Weston Twigg downgraded both Nanometrics (NANO) and Lam Research (LRCX) to Sector Weight from Overweight saying 3D NAND equipment demand is likely to peak in 2017. The analyst expects order declines and limited demand growth for semiconductor equipment names, which he sees limiting share upside. Twigg keeps Overweight ratings on Applied Materials (AMAT), MKS Instruments (MKSI) and Entegris (ENTG) for their longer term potential.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Norfolk Southern (NSC) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Avondale with Donald Broughton saying he continues to believe volumes will continue to decline, yields will continue to disappoint, cost savings will be increasingly harder to achieve, return on invested capital will continue to deteriorate, and the combination of those factors should result in fiscal 2017 earnings below fiscal 2016, pressuring valuation. 2. Fortinet (FTNT) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens with analyst Jonathan Ruykhaver saying he believes that in addition to slower overall growth in the network security market, heightened competition is impacting sales growth. 3. Alcoa (AA) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Timna Tanners saying she believes Alcoa's aerospace-focused downstream segment will continue to struggle with execution issues and delays over the next several quarters. 4. Emerson (EMR) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Shannon O'Callaghan saying analysts need to lower estimates to reflect Emerson's portfolio transformation, pension headwinds and end market pressures. 5. Nanometrics (NANO) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at Pacific Crest with analyst Weston Twigg saying 3D NAND equipment demand is likely to peak in 2017.
