On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ford (F) downgraded to Underperform at Credit Suisse by analyst Dan Galves, who said the automaker's North America EBIT guidance is at risk on overly optimistic implied volumes. He also sees global inventory as conflicting with global demand and material cost increases have fully offset recent pricing/mix gains from new product launches. 2. PTC Therapeutics (PTCT) downgraded to Neutral and Sector Perform to Citi and RBC Capital, respectively, after the FDA refused to review the company's application for Translarna for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Citi analyst Joel Beatty said the refusal most likely suggests that PTC will need additional clinical data before refiling, which could be "expensive and risky." 3. The Advisory Board (ABCO) downgraded at Stifel, Cantor, Craig-Hallum and Avondale after the company's Q4 revenue and FY16 guidance came in below expectations. Cantor analyst Joseph Foresi said the company reported a "surprising, material slowdown" in its Healthcare growth rate and Craig-Hallum analyst Matt Hewitt added that the company's exposure on the software side as ICD-10 related revenues fell the hardest and views shares as fully valued in the near-term. 4. ARMOUR Residential (ARR) downgraded to Reduce at Nomura by analyst Brock Vandervliet, who said the company has the worst economic returns across coverage in 2015 and expects trends to continue this year given its unsuccessful portfolio construction and high leverage. 5. Yamana Gold (AUY) downgraded to Sell at Goldman, with analyst Andrew Quail saying that the company's fiscal position will "remain pressured" over the next year now that Cerro Moro has been delayed until Q1 of 2018.
