On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Equifax (EFX) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst Jasper Hellweg citing news of a major hack on the company's data that could have lasting effects. 2. FedEx (FDX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Thomas Wadewitz citing TNT issues following the cyber-attack in June that knocked out multiple systems. 3. Carnival (CCL) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Tim Ramskil saying he is worried that his estimate of absolute industry capacity growth in 2018-2021 is double that of the last five years. 4. American Airlines (AAL), United Continental (UAL), and Spirit Airlines (SAVE) were downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan. 5. Acuity Brands (AYI) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Richard Kwas saying his firm's electrical channel checks indicate the 8% consensus organic revenue growth estimate for FY18 does not have upside. The analyst thinks shares are likely range-bound in the $160-$200 range "for the time being." He believes a "material step up" in tiered solutions growth is needed for gross margin to outperform expectations. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Outperform
Equifax price target lowered to $115 from $141 at Baird
Baird analyst Jeffrey Mueler lowered his price target on Equifax to $115 from $141 as he reduced his Global Consumer revenue estimate while assuming tougher U.S. B2B new sales and cross-sales and some volume share loss. He is also assuming increased expenses and removing share repurchases from his estimates. Mueler maintained his Outperform rating on Equifax shares.

Hold
Equifax downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus
Argus analyst Jasper Hellweg downgraded Equifax to Hold following news of a major hack on the company's data that could have lasting effects. Hellweg does not believe the company has handled the aftermath of the breach very well and notes more than two dozen class-action lawsuits have been filed against Equifax and members of Congress have called for additional regulation of the credit reporting industry.

SunTrust lowers Equifax, TransUnion price targets but advises buying stocks
SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey cut his price target on Equifax (EFX) to $110 from $155 and lowered his price target on TransUnion (TRU) to $48 from $54. As reasons for the reductions, he cited increased competition from free credit monitoring programs and the risk of share loss in the wake of the Equifax data breach. However, he believes that both stocks reflect an "overstated" risk of negative legislative and/or regulatory changes. Jeffrey does not expect governments to create "barriers to complete and comprehensive data access," since, according to the analyst, lenders and many service providers rely on the data generated by the credit bureaus. He recommends buying both stocks.
