Criteo should be bought on weakness, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Daniel Salmon says Criteo's (CRTO) stock declined on the company's "cautious comments" about Apple's (AAPL) "intelligent tracking prevention" rollout in September. The analyst doesn't expect Apple's initiative to be a "material disruption" for Criteo and he believes that Criteo's "network effect continues to build." He keeps a $70 price target and an Outperform rating on the shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Disney (DIS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Loop Capital with analyst David Miller citing valuation following the stock hitting a 52-week high on Friday. The strength in the stock over the last nine months has appropriately priced in the company's growth rate, said Miller, who maintains a $118 price target on Disney shares. 2. Groupon (GRPN) downgraded to Underweight on lackluster ad spend at Morgan Stanley with analyst Brian Nowak saying its recent local advertiser survey indicate lackluster forward advertiser spending and believes Groupon will need to spend more in order to grow North America Local Billings, which the Street seems to be underestimating. 3. Grainger (GWW) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at William Blair with analyst Ryan Merkel citing a lack of confidence in the company's repricing strategy. 4. Bank of America (BAC) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Berenberg with analyst James Chappell saying it is time to take profits. Interest rates unlikely to rise as much as has been priced into bank equity valuations, Chappell tells investors in a research note. Further, regulation and tax reform are likely to take longer than expected and not be as beneficial for the banks as many might have hoped, the analyst adds. He upped his price target for Bank of America shares to $22 from $15. 5. DuPont Fabros (DFT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Matthew Heinz saying shares are fully valued and demand patterns have shifted.

Bank of America NII softness could weight on shares, says Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Steven Chubak said Bank of America reported a modest core beat but the NII miss and elevated bar for Q3 could result in modest share underperformance. The analyst remains encouraged by fee income resiliency, favorable credit trends, strong capital build, and compelling risk/reward, and reiterates his Buy rating and $27 price target.

Big bank set-up not great, would sell into extended rally, says Baird
Baird analyst David George does not see a great set-up for money-center banks heading into Q2 earnings. He said the trade looks crowded and he would be a seller into an extended rally. George said the risk/reward is less attractive following the sector's most recent rally as economic growth remains muted and the pace of NIM expansion may slow. George believes the biggest potential catalyst would be a gradual steepening of the yield curve and pick-up on loan growth.

Micron selloff yesterday a buying opportunity, says Citi
Citi analyst Christopher Danely recommends using the selloff yesterday in shares of Micron Technology as a buying opportunity. Fears of weaker DRAM pricing moved the stock lower after Hynix announced it will increase DRAM capital expenditures and expects supply tightness in DRAM to ease in the second half of 2017, Danely tells investors in a research note. The analyst does not believe this level of capacity increase is enough to materially weaken the DRAM market. He keeps a Buy rating on Micron shares with a $45 price target.

Additionally, Cassidy thinks that the company's comments indicate that it is looking to maintain a supply/demand balance. He views Samsung's comments as positive for Micron and says they should alleviate the fears of the latter company's investors. The analyst keeps a Buy rating on Micron.

Wells Fargo downgrades Semiconductor sector to Market Weight
Wells Fargo analyst David Wong downgraded the Semiconductor sector to Market Weight from Overweight. Recent earnings reports from chip companies suggest that year-over-year growth will likely plateau or perhaps even decelerate over the next few months, Wong tells investors in a research note. He believes many chip stocks now have "elevated multiples" off calendar 2018 earnings estimates. Wong still sees good investment opportunities in some specific stocks, however, and reiterates Outperform ratings on Intel (INTC), Qualcomm (QCOM), Micron (MU), AMD (AMD), Skyworks (SWKS) and Microsemi (MSCC).

Micron recent pullback a buying opportunity, says Citi
Citi analyst Christopher Danely attributes the 12% pullback in shares of Micron over the past week to fears of memory overcapacity. Micron has traded down because of fears of a DRAM downturn driven by an increase in DRAM capital expenditures, Danely tells investors in a research note. DRAM capex in 2017 has increased from $8.9B to $9.9B year-over-year, but it is still not enough to cause a downturn, the analyst contends. He reiterates a Buy rating on Micron with a $45 price target.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Teva (TEVA) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst David Risinger saying he underappreciated generic pricing pressure risks on Teva's dividend and expects declining earnings power, combined with high leverage equal to result in a longer recovery. 2. Cummins (CMI) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs. 3. RE/MAX Holdings (RMAX) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens. 4. Intrepid Potash (IPI) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst John Roberts saying that while bankruptcy risk has been "significantly reduced" since the share count was increased 60% with the March secondary, he remains concerned about the lack of long term growth in non-core income and "still depressed" core potash related income. Roberts cites valuation for his downgrade and raised his price target for Intrepid Potash shares to $2.50 from $2.00. 5. Eaton (ETN) downgraded to In Line from Outperform at Evercore ISI.

Teva downgraded to Underweight, bear case target $9 at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley downgraded Teva to Underweight from Equal Weight and cut its price target to $16 from $36. Analyst David Risinger said he underappreciated generic pricing pressure risks on Teva's dividend and expects declining earnings power, combined with high leverage equal to result in a longer recovery. He expects core business generic headwinds and Copaxone generic competition to pressure Teva's long-term earnings power and cut his 2017 earnings estimate to $1.24 from $1.55, 2018 earnings estimate to $4.14 from $4.56, and 2019 earnings estimate to $3.79 from $4.50. Risinger's bear case price target on Teva is $9, which assumes much more severe Copaxone erosion and generic business downside.
