On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Bristol-Myers (BMY) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Alex Arfaei citing comments by Pfizer's (PFE) CEO which indicated that his company wouldn't look to buy Bristol-Myers in the near-term. Arfaei says that the chances of Bristol-Myers being acquired are "relatively low," as he thinks that the risk posed by the company's immunotherapy franchise will increase this year, while U.S. tax reform initiatives create uncertainty about large deals. 2. Anadarko (APC) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley, to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo, and to Neutral from Outperform at Macquarie. 3. Twilio (TWLO) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at Pacific Crest with analyst Brent Bracelin saying he underestimated Uber risk, its largest customer. The analyst does not expect growth to reaccelerate until the second quarter of 2018 and said increased investments and competitive risks could pressure the multiple until growth returns. 4. Akamai (AKAM) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Guggenheim and DA Davidson, to Hold from Buy at SunTrust, and to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo. 5. Dexcom (DXCM) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BTIG with analyst Sean Lavin saying the beat and raise to guidance is less likely over the next 12 months given the delay in the Medicare decision. Further, the analyst now sees the potential for misses to occur given competitive launches such as Medtronic's (MDT) Libre. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Twilio shares have likely bottomed, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Richard Davis believes Twilio shares may have bottomed as he sees a lot of risk out of the stock at current levels. The analyst cited the CEO purchase of stock in the open market as a sign of confidence and he sees it creating a foundation of trust. He sees a gradual ascent for the stock as the year progresses. Davis reiterated his Buy rating and $33 price target on Twilio shares.

Twilio lower after Northland details relationship with Airbnb
Airbnb, which currently has 3M homes in 191 countries on its platform, currently utilizes Twilio (TWLO) for SMS and push notifications, Northland analyst Michael Latimore told investors earlier today in a research note. The analyst spoke with several customers and partners, including Airbnb and Zendesk (ZEN), at Twilio's user conference this week. For push notifications, Airbnb uses two vendors, and for SMS, the platform uses Twilio, Vonage's (VG) Nexmo, and a likely small regional player based out of China, Latimore writes. He notes that Airbnb has seen 400% volume growth over the past two years with similar forecasts for the future. Airbnb said 80% of its volume goes to Twilio, the analyst notes. Latimore adds, "Airbnb employees noted that they found the new products announced during the keynote to be intriguing, suggesting a potential for a further expanded relationship." Despite Latimore's belief that an expanded relationship is possible, investors seem to have concerns that Airbnb could diversify away from Twilio, with the shares down in early trading by 3%, or 86c, to $25.19. The analyst has an Outperform rating on the stock with a $30 price target.

Twilio selloff yesterday a buying opportunity, says Oppenheimer
After attending the Twilio's user conference, Oppenheimer analyst Ittai Kidron says the company's relationship with Uber is "very much alive." Management has been very conservative with its Uber guidance, which limits further downside risk for the shares, Kidron tells investors in a research note. He believes discussions with Uber are ongoing and that the company is likely to remain an important customer of Twilio. Kidron recommends buying yesterday's dip in Twilio shares and keeps an Outperform rating on the name with a $38 price target.
