Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Macquarie analyst Amy Yong downgraded Pandora (P) to Neutral from Outperform and trimmed her price target to $11 saying potential M&A is to "tough to call" and fundamentals are "choppy." The analyst believes Pandora could sell Ticketfly which would free up financial capacity and help management focus on the core business, but said if neither a sale or M&A materializes, its standalone strategy will be the focus. 2. Wells Fargo analyst Jeff Farmer downgraded Bloomin' Brands (BLMN) to Market Perform saying Street estimates could prove aggressive due to labor costs while share repurchases are decelerating. 3. Deutsche Bank analyst Tiffany Kanaga downgraded The Buckle (BKE) to Sell, citing a lack of near-term support post the Q1 report and continued long-term concerns. 4. HSBC analyst Steve McGarry downgraded Shire (SHPG) to Reduce, saying that while the hereditary angioedema data are positive, investors should avoid the "hemophilia risk." 5. RBC Capital analyst Matthew Hedberg downgraded Symantec (SYMC) to Sector Perform from Outperform, citing valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
