On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. MetLife (MET) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Seth Weiss saying shares are now trading above the level of the disappointing fourth quarter earnings report and prefers Prudential (PRU) given it benefits more from improving interest rates and easing regulations. 2. Procter & Gamble (PG) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at B. Riley with analyst Linda Bolton Weiser saying that while the stock is up 11% from the December low, the company's fundamentals have weakened. The analyst cut her price target for the shares to $91 from $106. 3. GoPro (GPRO) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman with analyst Simona Jankowski saying the company faces "significant challenges" amid camera market saturation, product rollout issues in the holiday season, and a disappointing entry into the drone market. The analyst sees risk to consensus estimates and views the stock as overvalued. 4. Hawaiian Electric (HE) downgraded to Underperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst Greg Gordon saying he believes the risk/return for shares is skewed to the downside and estimates a "significantly lower total return" compared to other utilities he covers. He maintains a $31 price target on Hawaiian Electric shares. 5. Akorn (AKRX) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Gregg Gilbert saying the risk/reward is more balanced following the recent rally in the shares. Upside from current levels will have more to do with the "hard-to-call dynamics of new product approvals vs. base business erosion," Gilbert tells investors in a research note. He cut his price target for the shares to $24 from $28. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
