Kroger (KR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Northcoast with analyst Chuck Cerankosky saying he sees little chance of earnings acceleration and or surprise over the next six months and is forecasting flat to slightly down operating earnings for fiscal 2017. 3. Casey's General Stores (CASY) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Irene Nattelciting the company's tepid third quarter report. 4. Diebold (DBD) downgraded to In-Line from Outperform at Imperial Capital with analyst Jeff Kessler saying the company's next four to six quarters are "likely to be characterized by a large and complex integration project for management." The analyst keeps a $30 price target for the shares. 5. Frontier Communications (FTR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst David Barden saying the topline revenue has declined at a surprising rate, creating risk to the dividend.

Oppenheimer expects Kroger, Whole Foods to be interested in Sprouts Farmers
Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parik notes Bloomberg reported that Albertsons and Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM) held preliminary merger talks with proposed plans to take the latter private. To the extent Sprouts Farmers Market is in play, the analyst would expect Kroger (KR) and Whole Foods (WFM) to also be interested. Further, Parik suspects a high $20-low $30 range would be a minimum to get a deal done, as industry valuations currently are depressed due in part to deflationary pressures. He reiterates a Perform rating on Sprouts Farmers Market's shares.

FBR upgrades Abercrombie to Market Perform after selloff
FBR Capital analyst Susan Anderson upgraded Abercrombie & Fitch to Market Perform from Underperform citing the stock's 28% decline since her November 15, 2016 downgrade. Near-term negative results are likely priced into the stock, Anderson tells investors in a research note. She believes, however, that Abercrombie's same-store-sales will remain challenged driven by the A&F brand and Europe. The analyst lowered her price target for the shares to $13 from $14.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Jefferies analyst Randal Konik downgraded Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) to Hold saying the turnaround continues to struggle at the Abercrombie brand, with no visibility of a turnaround in sight. Also this morning, Oppenheimer analyst Anna Andreeva downgraded Abercrombie & Fitch to Underperform, saying consensus estimates have further downside as the brands "remain in transition amidst increasingly more competitive teen landscape." 2. Oppenheimer analyst Ittai Kidron downgraded Tableau (DATA) to Perform from Outperform to reflect the scope of near-term transition challenges integrating new leadership, the ratable shift, and competition, all hampering near-term upside potential. The analyst also cut Nokia's (NOK) rating to Perform from Outperform. 3. Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy downgraded Michael Kors (KORS) to Neutral saying the handbag category has been "highly promotional" while inventory levels have been high, particularly at department stores. The analyst sees no positive catalyst in the near-term for shares to re-rate higher and cut her price target for Kors to $48 from $60. 4. JPMorgan analyst Jimmy Bhullar downgraded Voya Financial (VOYA) to Underweight saying the risk/reward skews negative following the stock's outperformance in the second half of 2016. The analyst remains concerned about Voya's "subpar" return-on-equity. 5. JPMorgan analyst Michael Weinstein downgraded Medtronic (MDT) to Neutral saying the new macro environment of rising rates and a strengthening dollar will make it challenging for the shares to outperform in 2017. This morning Weinstein also downgraded Becton Dickinson (BDX) to Neutral saying the new macro environment of rising rates and a strengthening dollar will make it challenging for defensive growth names to outperform in 2017.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Teva (TEVA) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Sumant Kulkarni said the last night's unfavorable Court ruling is not a surprise and the company has already lowered its financial outlook on higher generic price erosion. Now that the ruling is out of the way, the analyst views Teva risk/reward as favorable and notes shares are down 58% since July 16, 2016 when it provided a more optimistic outlook. Over time, Kulkarni expects investors will be rewarded from Teva's leading generic pipeline and underappreciated brand pipeline. 2. CBOE Holdings (CBOE) upgraded to Buy from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Michael Carrier upgrading CBOE Holdings two notches to Buy from Underperform and raising its price target to $85 from $74. The analyst sees multiple sources of upside to accelerate earnings driven by the BATS deal, increased capital deployment, rising volatility off of historic lows, and potential US tax reform. 3. Monro Muffler (MNRO) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Gabelli with analyst Carolina Jolly citing valuation, acquisition growth, and a history of execution. 4. Tupperware Brands (TUP) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at B. Riley with analyst Linda Bolton Weiser increasing her price target for the shares to $54 from $47. 5. ViaSat (VSAT) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Andrew Spinola saying the valuation is attractive for "strong" medium- and long-term growth from the Viasat-2 and Viasat-3 launches. The analyst expects EBITDA growth of 41% and 21% in fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2020, respectively. He raised his price target for the shares to $94-$98 from $76-$78.
