On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. JPMorgan (JPM) and PNC Financial (PNC) were downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank. 2. Aflac (AFL) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst Suneet Kamath saying the company is at an inflection point as Aflac Japan is too large to show meaningful growth and Aflac U.S. is "too small to move the growth needle." 3. Cardtronics (CATM) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at William Blair with analyst Robert Napoli citing the changes in the Australian market. 4. Cheesecake Factory (CAKE), Shake Shack (SHAK), and Habit Restaurants (HABT) were downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush. 5. Genocea (GNCA) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Stephen Willey saying his visibility and confidence "remains admittedly low" after the company shelved GEN-003 and said it will shift focus on immuno-oncology and the development of neoantigen cancer vaccines. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
