Buy
Tactile Systems upgraded to Buy at BTIG on valuation
As noted earlier, BTIG analyst Sean Lavin upgraded Tactile Systems to Buy from Neutral with a $34 price target. Lavin says that shares have been under pressure since September and now offer a "compelling" re-entry. While he is concerned with potential for conservative FY18 outlook, the analyst notes that the company has been beating expectations on earnings and believes investors will not panic. Lavin also adds that the company's relationships with physicians and insurers offers a barrier to expiring IP assets.

Market Perform
Lumos Networks downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at William Blair
William Blair analyst Jim Breen downgraded Lumos Networks (LMOS) to Market Perform citing the takeover by EQT Infrastructure. The analyst does not anticipate a superior bid since Lumos indicated in the press release that it conducted a thorough review of strategic alternatives. He believes the deal highlights the value of the U.S. fiber market and reflects positively on peers like Zayo (ZAYO) and GTT Communications (GTT).

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Dick's Sporting (DKS) downgraded to Perform from Outperform at Oppenheimer by analyst Brian Nagel ahead of its upcoming earnings report, as he is increasingly concerned after a large number of leading sporting goods manufacturers and retailers reported results well shy of expectations, all while certain industry-wide sales trackers also hinted at top-line disruptions for the sector. 2. Mobileye (MBLY) downgraded to Neutral from Buy, as analyst Alex Veytsman said expectations are high and valuation largely reflects its strong growth profile. 3. Freeport McMoRan (FCX) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank by analyst Chris Terry following news that the company failed to reach an agreement to export copper concentrate from Indonesia. The analyst now assumes that Grasberg operates on scaled-back mode, only supplying the local Gresik smelter for the remainder of 2017. He cut his price target for Freeport shares to $12.50 from $14. 4. Lumos Networks (LMOS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies by analyst Scott Goldman citing the takeover by EQT Infrastructure, stating he does not expect any competing bids and sees "virtually no deal risk from a regulatory standpoint." 5. Depomed (DEPO) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Mizuho. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
