On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser downgraded Alphabet (GOOGL) to Hold from Buy citing brand safety concerns and valuation following the recent rally in the shares. News last week that Havas, the sixth largest global media network, is pulling its spending from Google's YouTube and Google Display Network in the U.K. because Google was "unable to provide specific reassurances, policy and guarantees that their video or display content is classified either quickly enough or with the correct filters" is a big deal, Wieser tells investors. 2. Canaccord analyst Lynne Collier downgraded Sonic (SONC) to Hold from Buy, citing challenging industry sales, the potential for Street estimates to be too high in the midst of soft sales, a lack of upcoming catalysts, and increasing competition from non-traditional venues such as convenience stores. 3. Piper Jaffray analyst Alexander Potter downgraded Mobileye (MBLY) to Neutral saying that while demanding a higher buyout price may be justified, he "begrudgingly" concluded that the price Intel (INTC) is paying for the company is fair. The analyst raised his price target for Mobileye shares to $63.54 from $60 to reflect Intel's offer. 4. Susquehanna analyst Sam Poser downgraded Caleres (CAL) citing the company's "disappointing" results and his belief that the company will not be able to overcome industry headwinds. 5. Goldman Sachs analyst Conor Fitzgerald downgraded Stifel Financial (SF) to Neutral from Buy while raising his price target for the shares to $59 from $58. The analyst believes LPL Financial (LPLA), a stock he upgraded this morning to Conviction Buy, offers more upside at current valuations.

Pivotal downgrades Alphabet to Neutral on brand safety concerns
Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser downgraded Alphabet (GOOGL) to Hold from Buy citing brand safety concerns and valuation following the recent rally in the shares. News last week that Havas, the sixth largest global media network, is pulling its spending from Google's YouTube and Google Display Network in the U.K. because Google was "unable to provide specific reassurances, policy and guarantees that their video or display content is classified either quickly enough or with the correct filters" is a big deal, Wieser tells investors in a research note. Many of the U.K.'s largest brands working with agencies are reportedly suspending their advertising on YouTube and/or other Google ad products due to similar concerns, Wieser points out. He sees the U.K. issues impacting Google's global growth and cut his price target for Alphabet shares to $950 from $970. The stock in premarket trading is down $2.58 to $869.79.

Growth of Amazon.com cloud business could moderate, says Pacific Crest
Pacific Crest analyst Brent Bracelin says that heavy investments by Microsoft (MSFT) and Google (GOOG, GOOGL) could make their cloud businesses more competitive with Amazon's (AMZN) AWS. The analyst says that AWS' growth could decelerate this year and in 2018. He lowered his estimates for Amazon and cut his price target on the name to $895 from $905 but keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.

Tableau price target lowered to $51 from $55 at DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Jack Andrews said several data points in recent weeks lead him to believe that the total addressable market opportunity for Tableau (DATA) is being contested and/or eroded by more "heavyweight" enterprise software companies, including Google (GOOG), Microsoft (MSFT) and Workday (WDAY). Citing the continued rise of competition, Andrews reiterates a Neutral rating on Tableau and lowered his price target to $51 from $55.
