Bernie Sanders calls on Trump to leverage defense contracts in Carrier talks

Senator Bernie Sanders issued the following statement Saturday on United Technologies and its Carrier subsidiary: "During the campaign, Donald Trump made a 100% commitment to prevent United Technologies from shipping 2,100 jobs from Indiana to Mexico. All of us need to hold Trump accountable to make sure that he keeps this promise. Let's be clear: it is not good enough to save some of these jobs. We cannot rest until United Technologies signs a firm contract to keep all of these good-paying jobs in Indiana without slashing the salaries or benefits workers have earned. United Technologies is not going broke. Last year, it made a profit of $7.6B and received over $6B in defense contracts. It has also received more than $50M in corporate welfare from the Export-Import Bank and very generous tax breaks... The firm also spent $12B to inflate its stock price instead of using that money to invest in new plants and workers. I call on Trump to make it clear to the CEO of United Technologies that if his firm wants to receive another defense contract from the taxpayers of this country, it must not move these plants to Mexico."

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. ACADIA (ACAD) downgraded to Market Perform at Leerink by analyst Paul Matteis, who said his 2016-2018 revenue estimates are below consensus. The analyst said that consensus estimates for the pimavanserin launch "may overlook a collection of minor headwinds." He admits that ACADIA could be attractive to multiple potential buyers, including Biogen (BIIB) and Amgen (AMGN).2. Sarepta (SRPT) downgraded to Underperform at Leerink with analyst Joseph Schwartz believing the FDA's interpretation of empirical data for eteplirsen will be consistent with the recent negative panel, which was critical despite powerful human testimonies. 3. Community Health (CYH) downgraded to Underperform at BofA/Merrill by analyst Kevin Fischbeck, who said Q1 was disappointing. The analyst does not see volumes accelerating and is skeptical the company can turn around HMA assets in the near-term enough to hit margin targets. 4. United Technologies (UTX) downgraded to Sector Perform at RBC Capital because the firm says that Honeywell's (HON) actions indicate that it's no longer interested in buying United Technologies. The firm also said that Honeywell hasn't looked to increase the amount of cash it returns to shareholders. 5. On Deck Capital (ONDK) downgraded to Underperform at Sterne Agee CRT, to Hold at Canaccord and Needham, and to Neutral at BTIG following its weaker than expected Q1 results and guidance cut. Canaccord analyst Michael Graham said tepid originations growth raises concerns regarding borrowing demand and sees increased uncertainties cropping up.

United Technologies downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi
Citi analyst Jason Gursky downgraded United Technologies to Neutral saying he sees three issues limiting share upside over the next twelve-plus months. Gursky believes 2017 consensus estimates are too high and that management is likely to reduce its 2020 targets at March's annual investor day. Further, he highlights manufacturing issues on the new GTF engine. The analyst cut his price target for the shares to $109 from $115.
