Synchronoss comments on carriers should help ease concerns, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty said that comments made by Synchronoss (SNCR) in a presentation to its lenders regarding AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) continuing to be cloud customers should help ease some of the concern investors have had around the company's cloud business. Auty keeps a Neutral rating on Synchronoss shares.

AT&T portal ramping earlier than expected for Synacor, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst George Sutton said Synacor's (SYNC) launch of the AT&T.net (T) portal has ramped up a bit earlier than he'd anticipated and noted that its website metrics suggest it is being well received by users. Sutton, who thinks success from this initiative should lead to a significant acceleration in the third quarter, keeps a Buy rating and $5 price target on Synacor shares.

AT&T downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst David Barden downgraded AT&T (T) to Neutral from Buy and cut its price target to $39 from $46 on reduced visibility into catalysts such as corporate tax reform and potential headwinds from the Time Warner (TWX) merger. Barden expects the associated overhang of $40B in new equity issuance and the tightening of the deal spread will increasingly pressure AT&T's stock. Additionally, the analyst trimmed Q2 estimates due to a seasonally difficult quarter saying video, voice, and broadband metrics are expected to be challenging and AT&T is losing share in each category.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Amazon.com (AMZN) downgraded to Peer Perform from Outperform at Wolfe Research with analyst Scott Mushkin saying shares are approaching his price target and he expects increasing competition through year-end. 2. Time Warner (TWX) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Pivotal Research with analyst Brian Wieser saying shares are trading near the value of AT&T's (T) offering price. 3. Molson Coors (TAP) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen with analyst Vivien Azer citing expectations for persistent beer volume headwinds. The analyst believes alcohol consumption could be pressured for at least the next decade, partly due to increased cannabis use, and a contraction in the alcohol cycle. Azer said Molson is uniquely exposed to the increasingly vibrant and growing cannabis markets and notes there is an inverse relationship between cannabis use and alcohol consumption over time. 4. eBay (EBAY) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Monness Crespi with analyst James Cakmak saying he sees insufficient upside to estimates to justify the lofty valuation. The analyst said the path to double-digit growth may be pushed out 2019 and limited potential to outperform topline expectations in 2017. Further, the analyst sees margin pressures from product mix towards StubHub and rising development spend for the backend, and limited opportunities for multiple expansion. 5. Ruth's Hospitality (RUTH) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Brian Vaccaro citing valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Sprint, DISH the only assets for sale, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Timothy Horan noted that wireless companies will be allowed to discuss M&A, and says he sees Sprint (S) and possibly DISH (DISH) as the only assets for sale. The analyst believes the most likely outcome is for consolidation around the four major wireless providers, something along the lines of Charter (CHTR)/Sprint, T-Mobile (TMUS)/Comcast (CMCSA; CMCSK), Verizon (VZ)/DISH, with AT&T's (T) position "fairly solidified" with DirectTV/Time Warner (TWX). Further, Horan suspects Sprint will be sold first, most likely to Charter, although T-Mobile is a possibility and could be the controlling company/management and likely paying a premium for Sprint.

Wunderlich downgrades Charter on valuation, sees some level of M&A priced in
As previously reported, Wunderlich analyst Matthew Harrigan downgraded Charter (CHTR) to Hold from Buy, citing valuation. He thinks that the current stock price imbeds some expectation for merger activity, apart from an eventual collapse of the Liberty Broadband (LBRDA) and Liberty Ventures (LVNTA) ownership structure, he tells investors. While a theoretical merger with Verizon (VZ) is "at least as strategically compelling" as AT&T's (T) deal for Time Warner (TWX), Harrigan thinks that price and regulatory hurdles could be difficult to overcome. He cut his price target on Charter to $350 from $360.
