On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Procter & Gamble (PG) downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust with analyst William Chappell, Jr. predicting that, "foreign exchange headwinds and waning investor appetites for higher yields" will cause the stock "to stay in a trading range in coming quarters." 2. Praxair (PX) downgraded to Underperform from Outperform at CLSA. 3. Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) downgraded to Market Perform from Strong Buy at Raymond James with analyst Budd Bugatch saying Bed Bath still has a long runway ahead before it realizes benefits from technology investments, membership program, and recent investments in One Kings Lane and PMall.com. 4. Finish Line (FINL) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Monness Crespi, to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush, to Hold from Buy at Canaccord, to Neutral from Buy at B. Riley, and to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill. 5. Red Hat (RHT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel and to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital.

Finish Line estimates seem aggressive as Amazon, others take share, says Cowen
Cowen analyst John Kernan believes the consensus 2018 estimates for Finish Line (FINL) appear aggressive, especially in light of the company's Q4 guidance, which implies expectations for weakness. The Q3 miss was due to lower margin performance and apparel weakness and Cowen's survey is showing the company is losing market share to competitors, including Amazon (AMZN), Kernan tells investors. Foot Locker (FL) and Dick's Sporting (DKS) are also gaining preference in sneaker shopping while the business remains highly promotional, said Kernan, who maintained his Market Perform rating and lowered his price target to $19 from $20 on Finish Line shares.
