On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. ACADIA (ACAD) downgraded to Market Perform at Leerink by analyst Paul Matteis, who said his 2016-2018 revenue estimates are below consensus. The analyst said that consensus estimates for the pimavanserin launch "may overlook a collection of minor headwinds." He admits that ACADIA could be attractive to multiple potential buyers, including Biogen (BIIB) and Amgen (AMGN).2. Sarepta (SRPT) downgraded to Underperform at Leerink with analyst Joseph Schwartz believing the FDA's interpretation of empirical data for eteplirsen will be consistent with the recent negative panel, which was critical despite powerful human testimonies. 3. Community Health (CYH) downgraded to Underperform at BofA/Merrill by analyst Kevin Fischbeck, who said Q1 was disappointing. The analyst does not see volumes accelerating and is skeptical the company can turn around HMA assets in the near-term enough to hit margin targets. 4. United Technologies (UTX) downgraded to Sector Perform at RBC Capital because the firm says that Honeywell's (HON) actions indicate that it's no longer interested in buying United Technologies. The firm also said that Honeywell hasn't looked to increase the amount of cash it returns to shareholders. 5. On Deck Capital (ONDK) downgraded to Underperform at Sterne Agee CRT, to Hold at Canaccord and Needham, and to Neutral at BTIG following its weaker than expected Q1 results and guidance cut. Canaccord analyst Michael Graham said tepid originations growth raises concerns regarding borrowing demand and sees increased uncertainties cropping up.
