On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst Daniel Salmon saying Amazon's (AMZN) ad business represents Google's biggest competitive headwind since Facebook (FB). The analyst believes Google can still grow revenue at 15%-20% over the mid-and long term, but he sees a lower likelihood of topping expectations as Amazon's ad business rises. Salmon continues to prefer Alphabet shares to Facebook, however. He moved Amazon to his top pick this morning and upped his price target for the shares to $1,200. 2. NVIDIA (NVDA) downgraded to Underweight from Sector Weight at Pacific Crest. 3. Nike (NKE) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying he expects the company's growth to slow over the next 12 months due to competition from Adidas (ADDYY) and Under Armour (UAA). 4. Urban Outfitters (URBN) and L Brands (LB) were downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi. 5. Bank of America (BAC) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Keith Horowitz saying the stock's outperformance since the U.S. election has substantially closed the valuation gap with JPMorgan (JPM). "We do not see a lot left to play for," Horowitz tells investors in a research note. He lowered his price target for Bank of America shares to $25 from $26.
