Analog Devices weakness will be short lived, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani notes that Analog Devices (ADI) "has underperformed rather notably" since its Q2 results on May 31. The analyst blames the weakness on the company's reduced revenue from Apple (AAPL). However, he thinks that investors will begin focusing more on the company's multiple tailwinds, possibly starting in the wake of its June 20 Analyst Day. Consequently, he expects the stock to rise from current levels and keeps a $92 price target and Outperform rating on the shares.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Disney (DIS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Loop Capital with analyst David Miller citing valuation following the stock hitting a 52-week high on Friday.

Grainger (GWW) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at William Blair with analyst Ryan Merkel citing a lack of confidence in the company's repricing strategy. 4. Bank of America (BAC) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Berenberg with analyst James Chappell saying it is time to take profits.

Further, he believes investors "may continue to be wary near term" of the company's user growth, which disappointed in Q1. The analyst adds that the IPO lock-up expiration in August will increase the stock available for sale by over 500% or 949M shares. He believes this could pressure the stock.

Snap download trends deteriorated thus far in Q2, says Nomura Instinet
An analysis of app download data from SensorTower points to year-over-year deterioration in Snapchat download trends through the first two months of Q2, Nomura Instinet analyst Anthony DiClemente tells investors in an intraday research note titled "Snap Back Unlikely in 2Q." He points out that Facebook's (FB) Instagram downloads grew year-over-year in Q2, which the analyst believes suggests competitive pressures may be intensifying for Snap. For April and May, SensorTower has Snap worldwide downloads down 22%. DiClemente keeps a Reduce rating on the shares with a $14 price target. He lowered his 2017 earnings per share estimate for SNAP to ($3.24) from ($2.68) and revenue estimate to $842M from $953M. These estimates are well below the consensus. Snap in midday trading is down 73c to $19.63.

Oppenheimer checks show slower adoption by new advertisers for Snap
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein says his recent channel checks indicate strong growth in existing advertiser spend for Snap, but slower adoption by new advertisers due to platform-specific video ads, limited 3P data and brand safety concerns for user-generated story ads. As a result, the analyst removed $5M from this Q2 revenue estimate to reflect slower than expected advertiser adoption and added the same amount to his Q4 estimate. He expects all of the new advertiser headwinds to be solved over time. Snap's full roll-out of a self-service ad manager in July should accelerate new advertiser adoption in the second half of 2017, Helfstein tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Outperform rating on the shares with a $23 price target.

Nordstrom (JWN) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Guggenheim with analyst Michael Binetti saying he does not see much further upside potential, even in a leveraged buyout scenario.

General Electric setting stage for dividend cut, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst John Inch believes the stage is being set for General Electric to cut its common dividend. The analyst has a Sell rating on the shares with a $24 price target. Last Wednesday at a conference, GE provided a cash flow walk for the next two years that suggests it is likely to generate insufficient free cash flow to cover its common dividend this year, and barely enough next year, Inch tells investors in a research note. He believes a "reasonable dividend payout" on a future earnings reset could result in a GE dividend cut to 65c-75c. A dividend reduction could be part of an earnings "reset" lower and possibly in conjunction with eventual future leadership change, Inch writes.

GE officially walked away from 2018 EPS target, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst John Inch says General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt at a conference yesterday officially walked away from the company's $2.00-plus earnings per share framework for 2018 citing tougher markets. While investors had expected GE to abandon the $2.00-plus target, the company kept $2.00 per share at the high end of its 2018 framework, Inch tells investors in a research note. He believes $2.00 to be unrealistic, even as just a high point in the range. The analyst sees cash flow pressures continuing in 2018 and keeps a Sell rating on GE with a $24 price target.
