MetLife upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at FBR Capital

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.

Misunderstanding creates buying opportunity in Tesaro stock, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Peter Lawson says that the suspension of participant recruitment by Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) for a study of Tesaro's (TSRO) PARP inhibitor Zejula in prostate cancer "is being incorrectly viewed as a clinical hold." After speaking with J&J, Lawson says that the suspension was not due to clinical or safety issues, but to overly fast enrollment. The analyst says that the early data on PARP inhibitors in prostate cancer has been "encouraging." He believes that the misunderstanding has created a buying opportunity in Tesaro stock. .

Tesaro prostate study suspension due to fast enrollment, says Credit Suisse
After speaking to Tesaro (TSRO), after they spoke to their partner Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Credit Suisse analyst Alethia Young said the news of the companies' suspension of participant recruitment in the study of niraparib in prostate cancer is actually positive, since it is due to the trial enrolling faster than expected. The suspension has nothing to do with safety or efficacy and is not a clinical hold, but is due to having too many patients in the first part of trial, Young was told. She maintains an Outperform rating on Tesaro shares.

ASCO meeting highlights pressure on Pfizer cancer assets, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Vamil Divan said he came away from the ASCO meeting feeling like positive progress by competitors is increasing the pressure on Pfizer's (PFE) cancer assets, specifically pointing to positive data for Roche's (RHHBY) Alecensa, Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ) Zytiga and Eli Lilly's (LLY) abemaciclib. Additionally, competition in the immune-oncology and PARP spaces will make it more challenging for Pfizer to gain traction, added Divan. He keeps an Outperform rating on Pfizer, citing valuation and its dividend yield, but he has concerns about its upcoming patent expirations and growth products.

Amazon may be the next threat to drug pricing, says Wells Fargo
After CNBC recently reported that Amazon (AMZN) is considering going into the prescription pharmacy business in the U.S., Wells Fargo surveyed nearly 2,900 U.S. adults and found that 54% of those polled said they would use or would probably use "Amazon Pharmacy." While the e-commerce giant has not confirmed its U.S. pharmacy interest, if it did enter the market analyst David Maris believes it could see fast adoption and "usher in a new age of price transparency." Maris also wonders if pharmacy "may be just the beginning" and if Amazon eyes the "even larger prize" of fully integrated digital healthcare. Publicly traded large-cap pharmaceuticals companies include AstraZeneca (AZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MRK), Novartis (NVS), Pfizer (PFE), Roche (RHHBY) and Sanofi (SNY). Publicly traded retail pharmacy operators include CVS Health (CVS), Walgreens (WBA), Fred's (FRED) and Rite Aid (RAD).
