Nielsen weakness overdone, says Wells Fargo
After Nielsen reported weaker than expected results and the company said that 2017 would be an investment year for its Buy business, causing the stock to tumble nearly 17%, Wells Fargo says that the weakness was overdone. The firm says that only 7% of the company's business is under pressure, while 93% of its business "is performing at or above expectations and is a high quality...franchise." Wells recommends that long-term investors buy the shares on weakness.

Neutral
Nielsen downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi
Citi analyst Jason Bazinet downgraded Nielsen Holdings to Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $45 from $54 after assuming coverage of the name. The valuation isn't compelling as the company's historic growth is tied to one segment, Watch, and its adjusted earnings benefits from a very low tax rate, Bazinet tells investors in a research note.
