Outperform
Tractor Supply checks suggest choppy fundamentals, says Baird
Baird analyst Peter Benedict said his seasonal checks on Tractor Supply suggest choppy fundamentals driven by pockets of seasonal weather. The analyst expects Q1 to be softer than usual and believes the guidance could be lowered when the company reports on Wednesday. Benedict maintained his Outperform rating and lowered his price target to $62 from $70 on Tractor Supply shares.

Overweight
Tractor Supply likely to reduce FY17 guidance, says Barclays
Barclays analyst Matthew McClintock believes that some improvement in Q2 will not be enough to offset the weakness Tractor Supply reported in Q1. As such, he sees a reduction in the company's FY17 guidance as likely. The analyst continues to like the longer term growth story of Tractor Supply but reduced his estimates for FY17 and FY18. He also dropped his price target for the shares to $70 from $90. McClintock keeps an Overweight rating on Tractor Supply.

Outperform
Tractor Supply price target lowered to $70 from $80 at Baird
After hosing a meeting with Tractor Supply's CEO, Baird analyst Peter Benedict said the company's Q1 performance and "incrementally cautious" gross margin commentary reinforce the view that a cut to its FY17 guidance remains likely. Given the likelihood guidance will be lowered, Benedict recommends a "patient near-term approach" to the stock and cut his price target to $70 from $80. However, citing a favorable view of the longer-term risk/reward, he keeps an Outperform rating on Tractor Supply shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Garmin (GRMN) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Paul Coster citing valuation and less likelihood for upside surprises throughout the remainder of 2017 due to tough comparisons. The analyst lowered his price target for the shares to $50 from $55. 2. Square (SQ) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Guggenheim with the firm citing valuation and maintained a $20 price target on shares. 3. Tractor Supply (TSCO) downgraded to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer with analyst Brian Nagel citing concerns about the company's "modest" earnings growth could drive multiple contraction. The analyst thinks a guidance cut is likely when Tractor reports second quarter results in July. 4. Molson Coors (TAP) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Societe Generale with analyst Andrew Holland saying investments will impact margins. 5. MEDNAX (MD) downgraded two notches to Underperform from Buy at BofA/Merrill with the firm's analyst citing concerns cost pressures and worsening top line trends. The analyst lowered its price target to $57 from $75. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

SM Energy price target lowered to $35 from $45 at Baird
Baird analyst Daniel Katzenberg lowered his price target on SM Energy to $35 from $45 as the company's decision to retain its Bakken acreage complicates its earlier corporate goals to focus on the Permian and Eagle Ford areas only. The analyst said the retention pushes out the company's deleveraging goals, though shares remain attractively valued. Katzenberg reiterated his Outperform rating on SM Energy shares.
