On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Apple (AAPL) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at Pacific Crest with analyst Andy Hargreaves saying upside from the launch of iPhone 8 is already reflected in the shares. An "extremely strong iPhone 8 cycle" is being priced into the stock while little weight is being given to gross margins, supply issues, or the likelihood for declines beyond the iPhone 8, Hargreaves tells investors in a research note. 2. Perrigo (PRGO) downgraded to Underperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Randall Stanicky saying the growth rate of the company's U.S. consumer business "has structurally re-rated lower" amid pricing headwinds and share losses. 3. Endocyte (ECYT) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush and to Market Perform from Outperform at Cowen. 4. Affiliated Managers (AMG) was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi while Federated Investors (FII) was downgraded to Sell from Neutral. 5. Veeva (VEEV) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with the firm's analyst saying the 60%+ move in shares year-to-date captures much of the near-term upside in the stock. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Underperform
Perrigo downgraded on multiple headwinds at RBC Capital
As noted earlier, RBC Capital downgraded Perrigo to Underperform from Sector Perform. Analyst Randall Stanicky says that the growth rate of the company's U.S. consumer business "has structurally re-rated lower" amid pricing headwinds and share losses. He adds that the pressures facing the company's generic business will intensify, while its EBITDA growth will be "limited" and it will have difficulty meeting its lowered, 2%-4% revenue growth target. Price target to $60 from $66.

Southwestern Energy upgraded to Hold at Jefferies
As previously reported, Jefferies analyst Zach Parham upgraded Southwestern Energy to Hold from Underperform, saying that the stock's roughly 30% decline year-to-date has pushed the shares to near fair value. The analyst, who remains bullish on gas prices, keeps his price target on the stock at $8.

Buy
Southwestern Energy initiated with a Buy at Stifel
Stifel analyst Karl Chalabala started coverage of Southwestern Energy with a $10 price target and a Buy rating. As reasons for the rating, the analyst cited valuation, his belief that the company will benefit disproportionately from a Gulf Coast gas shortage in 2018, and upcoming gas pricing gains. Target $10.

Outperform
Southwestern Energy upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen
Cowen analyst Charles Robertson upgraded Southwestern Energy to Outperform and lowered its price target to $11 from $14 given its strong production growth outlook, year-to-date underperformance, insulation to service costs, and upside to ethane pricing.

Nexstar Fox deal positive, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says the market is failing to fully appreciate Nexstar's (NXST) deal with 21st Century Fox (FOXA). The analyst says that the OTT master agreement within the deal was positive and removes an overhang on Nexstar. Wells says that the company's management "is doing everything right," and it recommends buying the stock now.

21st Century Fox, Sky deal to take longer to clear, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Omar Sheikh continues to believe the Sky (SKYAY) transaction will eventually receive full regulatory approval, but highlights there is an elevated risk to the deal if it is referred to the CMA, and at best an extended period before it gets cleared. Meanwhile, he believes the 2018 21st Century Fox (FOXA) organic equity story looks compelling, and reiterates an Outperform rating and $37 price target on the shares.

Fox-ION 'rumors' most likely a negotiating tactic, says Benchmark
Benchmark analyst Daniel Kurnos highlighted a "slew" of "inconsistencies" that make him skeptical of last week's "unsubstantiated rumor published by Bloomberg" regarding Fox (FOXA) potentially forming a JV with ION and pulling all of its affiliate agreements from Sinclair (SBGI), concluding in a note to investors that this was "just another negotiating tactic by the network." Fox's "cozy" agreements with Tribune (TRCO) may get disrupted by Sinclair's acquisition, added Kurnos, who has a Buy rating on Sinclair shares.

Hulu stake could be for sale this year, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Omar Sheikh notes that Comcast (CMCSA; CMCSK) will be free to sell its 30% stake in Hulu from the end of 2017. The analyst believes there is a $100B domestic revenue opportunity for targeted TV advertising long-term, which vertically integrated networks/distributors will be in a strong position to exploit. Therefore, Sheikh argues that it would make sense for 21st Century Fox (FOX; FOXA) to acquire Comcast's stake in Hulu, if it becomes available, subject to valuation and appropriate programming supply agreements. He reiterates an Outperform rating and $37 price target on 21st Century Fox's shares.

Murphy Oil downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Edward Westlake downgraded Murphy Oil to Underperform but increased its price target to $37 from $33. He believes Murphy's growth will lag peers through 2018 due to deep cuts to spending in 2016 and said it will take time to turn acquired acreage into equity value.
