Deutsche sees Personal Care stocks giving up recent gains
Deutsche Bank analyst Faiza Alwy expects stocks in the Cosmetics, Household and Personal Care space to give up their recent gains. The market seems to have decided that 3G or Unilever (UN, UL) is interested in acquiring U.S. HPC stocks with the group up 11% year-to-date, Alwy tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees M&A as unlikely in the near-term and points out that interest rates are rising. Alwy keeps Hold ratings on Colgate-Palmolive (CL), Clorox (CLX), Edgewell Personal Care (EPC) and Kimberly-Clark (KMB).

DOWNGRADE

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.

Weatherford CEO choice ups chance of eventual Halliburton takeover, says Gabelli
Gabelli analyst Simon Wong said he was "pleasantly surprised" that Weatherford (WFT) appointed former Halliburton (HAL) CFO Mark McCollum as its new President and CEO and he views the selection "very favorably." The analyst, who said he has always believed that Halliburton is the most logical acquirer of Weatherford's portfolio of products, thinks the appointment of McCollum increases the likelihood that Halliburton will buy Weatherford "down the road." Wong has a Buy rating on Weatherford shares.

Bianchi reiterated his Outperform rating and $7 price target on Weatherford shares, which are up more than 15% to $6.80 in pre-market trading.
