Oil price forecast cut at Bernstein
Bernstein analysts lowered their 2017 and 2018 oil price forecasts to $50 per barrel for both years.

Publicly traded companies in the oil space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT).

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Intel (INTC) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Vivek Arya saying he fears increased competition from AMD (AMD) in servers and Nvidia (NVDA) share gains in AI and accelerators could limit Intel's average selling price expansion, which he notes has been a key source of its growth.

Schlumberger (SLB) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays with analyst J.

Embraer (ERJ) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen with analyst Cai Von Rumohrciting the increasing likelihood of a transitional earnings dip as E2 enters production with another year of cash outflow in 2018. Although 2019 looks notionally better, the stock faces a tough earnings revision set-up in the second half of this year. Von Rumohr lowered his price target to $24 from $27 on Embraer shares.
