Underweight
bluebird bio downgraded to Underweight on sickle cell risk at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Matthew Harrison downgraded bluebird bio (BLUE) to Underweight from Equal Weight, as he believes the risks ahead of the company's presentation of LentiGlobin sickle cell data at December's American Society of Hematology meeting remains underappreciated. The analyst, who notes the stock is up over 40% since Gilead's (GILD) acquisition of Kite Pharma (KITE) set off excitement about the CAR-T space that blue is also in, doesn't believe the ASH data will demonstrate the improvement in hemoglobin production necessary to increase confidence in sickle cell genetherapy, he tells investors. Harrison keeps a $105 price target on bluebird bio shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. PepsiCo (PEP) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Kevin Grundy saying North American beverage trends continue to deteriorate and Pepsi's likely need for reinvestment should "cap the stock" over the next 12 months. 2. Western Digital (WDC) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird with analyst Tristan Gerra saying he believes the potential outcomes from the company's ongoing litigation with Toshiba (TOSYY) "range from neutral to significantly negative" and the ongoing fight will cap the stock's valuation in the near-term. 3. Uniti Group (UNIT) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Philip Cusick saying the "theme of Windstream's (WIN) distress continues to increase in volume." 4. Parker-Hannifin (PH) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Nigel Coe saying he sees a more balanced risk-reward following the stock's strong outperformance since the election. 5. bluebird bio (BLUE) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Matthew Harrison saying he believes the risks ahead of the company's presentation of LentiGlobin sickle cell data at December's American Society of Hematology meeting remains underappreciated.

Outperform
bluebird bio should be bought on weakness, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Jim Birchenough reiterates an Outperform rating on shares of bluebird bio and recommends buying on weakness, following a call with management and what he believes to be flawed competitor analysis related to the companies LentiGlobin gene therapy program for Sickle Cell Disease. With concerns raised regarding correlation between ex vivo drug product vector copy number and in vivo peripheral vector copy number, the analyst believes that pooling of small patient numbers, from different studies, not consistently exposed to the same gene therapy product or transplant protocol, provides inadequate framework for correlation analysis and conclusion on prospects for clinical success in Sickle Cell Disease. Importantly, Birchenough argues that at the current bluebird bio share price of $120/share, only $16/share is attributable to Sickle Cell Disease, with an implied likelihood of success of only 10%, and that base value of $104/share can be supported by BCMA CAR-T, LentiGlobin for Beta Thalassemia, and gene therapy for adrenoleukodystrophy.
