Bank of America downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird
As previously reported, Baird analyst David George downgraded Bank of America to Neutral from Buy as he believes the post-election rally has largely discounted the potential benefits of rising interest rates, lower taxes, and more aggressive capital return.

His favorite large-cap names in the sector are, in order, Netflix (NFLX), Facebook (FB), and Priceline (PCLN).

Facebook, Amazon.com most attractive on post-election pullback, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein notes that there has been a rotation into industrial and financial stocks post-election, at the expense of multinational technology stocks. However, he sees some potential positive catalysts for "FANG" names, namely Facebook (FB), Amazon.com (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOG; GOOGL), with the first two looking the most attractive at current levels. The analyst points out that Facebook's potential positive catalysts include faster than expected ad monetization driven by "Video First" strategy, Instagram engagement and Dynamic Product Ads. As for Amazon, he expects stable consumer spending to support a strong holiday shopping season.
