Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1.

Chipotle (CMG) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Stifel with analyst Paul Westra citing the firm's belief that the U.S. economy will probably enter a recession within nine months. 3. Whole Foods (WFM) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman with analyst Stephen Tanal saying Whole Foods is losing share in its core natural and organic business to a variety of competitors that have raised the bar and driven a consistent deceleration in Whole Foods' same-store-sales and its first negative comps in the fourth quarter of 2016 since 2009. 4. BJ's Restaurants (BJRI) downgraded to Sell from Buy at Stifel with analyst Paul Westra citing the firm's belief that the U.S. economy will probably enter a recession within nine months. 5. Yahoo (YHOO) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analysts led by Brian Nowak saying shares going forward will solely be viewed as a trading vehicle for its 15% Alibaba (BABA) stake with the investment thesis related to shares closing the estimated 39% liquidity discount to fair market value.
