On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wells Fargo (WFC) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Rafferty Capital with analyst Richard Bove saying he does not expect bank stocks in general to do well for months and he thinks on Wells specifically that its Directors report indicates that the company is in the midst of a multi-year re-structuring process. Bove lowered his 12-month price target range for Wells Fargo shares to $46-$60 from $52-$68. 2. Tractor Supply (TSCO) was downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens and to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan. 3. Avinger (AVGR) downgraded to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer with analyst Steven Lichtman downgraded Avinger (AVGR) to Perform from Outperform after its Q1 sales came in below estimates on lower than expected Pantheris utilization and following the company's announcement that it plans to reduce its workforce by 33%, while pursuing strategic alternatives, including a capital raise from strategic investors, OUS partnerships, or a merger/sale. 4. Louisiana-Pacific (LPX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham with the firm citing recent share strength that has made risk/reward more balanced. 5. LVMH (LVMUY) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Societe Generale with analyst Thierry Cota citing a lack of upside following the stock's recent rally. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Cowen still believes in Avinger despite cutting target to $2
Cowen analyst Joshua Jennings says he remains a believer in the "unique value" of Avinger's proprietary Pantheris atherectomy device. Management has taken "reasonable steps" by cutting the workforce and accelerating the exploration of strategic options, Jennings tells investors in a research note. He cut his price target for the shares to $2 from $12 and keeps an Outperform rating on the name. The stock in midday trading is down 50% to 80c.

Hold
Avinger downgraded to Hold from Buy at Canaccord
Canaccord analyse James Mills downgraded Avinger to Hold and lowered its price target to $1 from $4.30 following the negative Q1 pre-announcement and significant planned reductions in the workforce. The analyst believes Avinger needs to find a strategic partner quickly for there to be even a decent chance that its promising technology will realize its full potential.
