On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Tesla (TSLA) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Adam Jonas saying the bull thesis on Tesla centers around the company becoming the next Amazon (AMZN) or Apple (AAPL), Jonas tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, questions if the risks of taking on the tech giants is sufficiently discounted in the share price. He expects "much larger and more well capitalized" competitors to unveil strategies that directly address sustainable transport and mobility. 2. J.C. Penney (JCP) was downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank, to Neutral from Outperform at Baird, and to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham. 3. STMicroelectronics (STM) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel. 4. Level 3 (LVLT) and CenturyLink (CTL) were downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Raymond James. 5. TSMC (TSM) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Randy Abrams saying headwinds from excess inventory, slower China smartphones, and Qualcomm (QCOM) shifts to Samsung (SSNLF) could pressure sales and margins. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Tesla downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas downgraded Tesla (TSLA) to Equal Weight with an unchanged price target of $305. The electric carmaker closed Friday up $1.71 to $324.81. The bull thesis on Tesla centers around the company becoming the next Amazon (AMZN) or Apple (AAPL), Jonas tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, questions if the risks of taking on the tech giants is sufficiently discounted in the share price. He expects "much larger and more well capitalized" competitors to unveil strategies that directly address sustainable transport and mobility. Regarding the numbers, Jonas now expects Tesla to remain loss-making on a U.S. GAAP basis until late 2019. His also expects the company to burn $3.1B of cash in 2017, greater than his previous estimate of $2.3B. Further, the analyst believes expectations for the Model 3 launch "appear to have recovered substantially" over the last four months.

Tesla will have trouble hitting Model 3 margin target, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst A.M. (Toni) Sacconaghi, Jr. believes that Tesla will have difficulty hitting its goal of 25% gross margins on the Model 3 in the near to medium term. The vehicle's costs are high, while Tesla's "huge"capex increases and the potential for stronger demand for lower cost Model 3 vehicles could also hurt its margins, the analyst stated. Sacconaghi, Jr. keeps a Market Perform rating on the shares.
