Equal Weight
Kimberly-Clark downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays
Barclays analyst Lauren Lieberman downgraded Kimberly-Clark to Equal Weight after lowering her U.S. Non-Food Consumer Staples sector view to Neutral from Positive. The analyst lowered her price target for the shares to $109 from $125. The analyst sees a less favorable macroeconomic backdrop in 2017 and has "fairly muted expectations" for company fundamentals in the space.

Edgewell Personal Care remains takeout target, says RBC Capital
After Kraft Heinz (KHC) confirmed it had approached Unilever (UN, UL) with a merger proposal, RBC Capital analyst Nik Modi says the news come as a surprise, but does not warrant a change in his Edgewell Personal Care (EPC) takeout thesis. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on the latter's shares, with a $105 price target, on improving margin and revenue profile and the prospects of a takeout in the next 12-16 months, with Unilever as one of the more likely buyers. Other potential suitors include Kimberly-Clark (KMB), Beiersdorf, Henkel, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Colgate-Palmolive (CL), Church & Dwight (CHD), L'Oreal (LRLCY), and Kao, he adds.

Kimberly-Clark downgraded to Hold on competition, valuation at Societe Generale
Societe Generale analyst Iain Simpson downgraded Kimberly-Clark to Hold from Buy and raised his target price to $144 from $139. Simpson said price competition in the US has picked up as P&G is becoming more aggressive with its mid-tier Luvs and competition in Brazil and China remains "tough." The analyst expects cost cutting to drive margins and views cash returns as "robust," but said valuation has caught up with fundamentals.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Dollar General (DG) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham with the firm's analyst saying the environment has become more difficult since the bullish analyst day last spring. The firm's analyst said shares do not appear to fully factor in sales and margin challenges and sees risk to Street expectations. 2. MEDNAX (MD) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Gary Taylor citing valuation following the recent rally in the shares. The analyst says he can't with confidence bump up his $69 price target given the multi-year slowdown of organic growth and its high Medicaid payor exposure. 3. Loxo Oncology (LOXO) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Yigal Nochomovitz saying the stock is now fairly valued. The reflect the equity financing in January which expanded the share count and rising R&D spend, the analyst cut his price target for the shares to $45 from $49. He believes, however, that Loxo management is executing the business plan well. 4. Kimberly-Clark (KMB) downgraded to Hold on competition, valuation at Societe Generale with analyst Iain Simpson saying price competition in the U.S. has picked up as P&G is becoming more aggressive with its mid-tier Luvs and competition in Brazil and China remains "tough." The analyst expects cost cutting to drive margins and views cash returns as "robust," but said valuation has caught up with fundamentals. 5. Ionis Pharmaceuticals (IONS) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman with analyst Salveen Richter saying Ionis has a "lackluster" track record of developing successful drugs and ongoing toxicity across multiple drugs. If volanesorsen is approved for FCS, Richter expects safety/compliance issues and the launch focus on specialists will result in limited returns, similar to drug Kynamro for high cholesterol.
