Earlier than expected Boeing 777 rate cut negative for suppliers, says UBS
UBS analyst David Strauss said that while Boeing (BA) had previously signaled a 777 production rate cut was coming, he thinks the now-announced cut to 5 planes per month in mid-2017 is 3 to 6 months earlier than expected. He sees the earlier than expected transition as having negative implications for key 777 suppliers, including B/E Aerospace (BEAV), GE (GE), Honeywell (HON), Spirit AeroSystems (SPR) and Triumph Group (TGI). Strauss keeps a Neutral rating on Boeing, as he believes 777X development will burn a couple billion per year with overall FCF declining during this period, but also said the company's 30% dividend increase and $14B buyback announcement signals strong confidence in its cash flow outlook.

DA Davidson analyst Arren Cyganovich initiated Navient with a Buy and a $21 price target. The analyst believes Navient can use its scale and servicing expertise to win new portfolio acquisitions and expand into new areas, such as increasing its penetration into healthcare receivables management. He believes renewed attention to growth opportunities creates catalysts for shares. Additionally, the incoming Administration and Congress likely limits past regulatory/legislative risks and creates potential to drive new opportunities for the company ahead. Cyganovich thinks purchasing additional loan portfolios will help bridge the gap to further grow its non-education-related fee income as a proportion of overall revenues.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Twitter (TWTR) downgraded to Underperform from Sector Perform by RBC analyst Mark Mahaney, who cut his price target to $14 from $17. The research firm's survey of more than 1,100 advertising professionals and their attitudes towards Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG), Twitter and other high-profile names showed that, despite marketing budgets continuing to shift online, interest in the microblog platform appears to be declining. Of note, Twitter shares have surged this morning after CNBC's David Faber reported that Twitter is moving closer to selling itself and has received expressions of interest in a possible sale, although no deal is imminent. 2. Yum! Brands (YUM) downgraded to Outperform from Top Pick by RBC Capital analyst David Palmer based on valuation. His price target on Yum shares remains $97. 3. Becton Dickinson (BDX) downgraded to Sell from Neutral by Citi analyst Amit Hazan, who thinks a cyclical U.S. slowdown will push the company's organic growth below expectations. The analyst, who also sees a diminishing impact on Becton's growth from emerging markets, cut his price target for the shares to $165 from $167. 4. NextEra Energy (NEE) downgraded to Hold from Buy by Deutsche Bank analyst Jonathan Arnold, as he sees limited near-term upside with the shares up 23% year-to-date. "Extraordinarily frosty commentary" from two of three PUCT commissioners yesterday regarding NextEra's Oncor deal indicates an uphill battle in getting it approved, Arnold tells investors. 5. AVANGRID (AGR) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral by JPMorgan analyst Christopher Turnure, who thinks both the company's growth guidance and consensus expectations "appear ambitious." He lowered his price target for the shares to $41 and $44 and notes he does not have confidence in AVANGRID's near-term growth. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Credit Suisse sees buying opportunity after Textron results
Credit Suisse analyst Julian Mitchell sees a buying opportunity after Textron's Q4 results, noting that earnings are unlikely to stay frozen at $2.50 for long. While the analyst acknowledges that the company's 2017 is plagued by a number of mix headwinds, which are unlikely to persist into the medium-term, he points out that the stock rose by about 50% through year-end from where Textron closed after its earnings drop on Q4 earnings in January 2016. Mitchell reiterates an Outperform rating and $50 price target on the shares.

He suggested seasonal factors could cause Q1 to be the weakest of the year and that full year 2017 earnings remain intact with a potential for upside if business jet business trends pick up. Rumohr reiterated his Outperform rating and $60 price target on Textron shares.

Arment said the weakness is a good buying opportunity for long-term investors and he reiterated his Outperform rating and $56 price target on Textron shares.
