Kroger outlook revised to Negative from Stable by Fitch

Fitch affirmed Kroger's Long-Term Issuer Default Rating at 'BBB' and revised its rating outlook to Negative from Stable. The Negative outlook reflects Fitch's concern about Kroger's ability to return to its historical track record of generating non-fuel identical store sales above 3% and EBITDA growth over the next 12 to 18 months, given "heightened industry pressures."

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Snap (SNAP) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Lloyd Walmsley saying the risk/reward is more balanced with the shares up 29% since August 11. 2. Owens Corning (OC) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Nomura Instinet with analyst Michael Wood saying high expectations create a balanced risk/reward at current share levels. 3. Kroger (KR) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Shane Higgins saying the company's sales and earnings growth for the next few years are likely to be below historical averages as it enters a period of increased investment, which warrants a lower multiple. 4. Sony (SNE) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Kota Ezawa saying the shares, following the recent rally, are now around fair value. The analyst expects the company's earnings growth to slow. 5. Newell Brands (NWL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Kevin Grundy citing management's "recent cautionary commentary" on its outlook for the second half of 2018. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Kroger upgraded to Buy from Hold at Pivotal Research
Pivotal Research analyst Ajay Jain upgraded Kroger to Buy with an unchanged price target of $25. The supermarket owner closed yesterday up 28c to $21.34. Continued weakness in investor sentiment following Kroger's latest results presents a near-term buying opportunity, Jain tells investors in a research note. The analyst, while admitting it is difficult to call an absolutely bottom amid an increasingly competitive operating environment, says the stock's risk/reward is "finally improving."

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Comerica (CMA) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Brett Rabatin saying the bank's mid-quarter update is better than expected. 2. Alcoa (AA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Jorge Beristain basing the upgrade on the firm's commodity team raising its 2018 aluminum price forecast by 12% to $2,072 per ton. 3. Kroger (KR) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Pivotal Research with analyst Ajay Jain saying continued weakness in investor sentiment following Kroger's latest results presents a near-term buying opportunity. 4. Comcast (CMCSA) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at MoffettNathanson with analyst Craig Moffett saying Comcast shares cheap following management comments on third quarter subscriber loses and the resulting stock selloff is overdone. 5. Inovalon (INOV) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Ricky Goldwasser saying that the company's presentation at the firm's healthcare conference provided a line of sight to organic earnings acceleration in the second half of the year.

Kellogg downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Lavery downgraded Kellogg (K) to Neutral saying cereal could be at risk from shrinking center store space. Recent comments by Kroger (KR) and Campbell Soup (CPB) indicate retailer pushback is a real threat to packaged food suppliers, Lavery tells investors in a research note. He adds that scanner data suggests Kellogg's sales trends are worse than expected in both snacks and cereal. The analyst dropped his price target for Kellogg to $72 from $78.
