DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Monsanto (MON) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Laurence Alexander saying Bayer's (BAYRY) all-cash offer appears on track for year-end. The analyst views the deal failing as a "low-probability scenario" and keeps a $128 price target for the shares. 2. Freeport McMoRan (FCX) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Berenberg. 3. Kimberly-Clark (KMB) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Stephen Powers saying the stock's 11% rise year-to-date is not based on fundamentals but news flow of consolidation in the Household Products sector. 4. Harley-Davidson (HOG) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein with analyst David Beckel citing his belief that "demographic shifts and a stagnating economy" will prevent demand for the company's motorcycles from growing in the U.S. for the next five years. 5. IMAX (IMAX) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Barrington with analyst James Goss saying positive catalysts "might take some time to develop."

Conviction Buy
Philip Morris upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Judy Hong upgraded Philip Morris (PM) to Conviction Buy and reiterates the stock as her top pick in within tobacco. The company offers a "rare innovation product cycle story within Staples" along with the strongest global positioning in next generation products, Hong tells investors in a research note where she also upgraded Brown-Forman (BF.B) to Neutral. The analyst views Philip Morris' IQOS as a "game-changer for Global Tobacco." She raised her price target for the shares to $135 from $133. Hong also highlights Mondelez (MDLZ), Estee Lauder (EL) and Kimberly-Clark (KMB) as top multinational picks.

Underweight
Kimberly-Clark downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Andrea Teixeira downgraded Kimberly-Clark to Underweight and cut her price target for the shares to $100 from $135. Decelerating sales and margin pressures will limit the company's earnings power going forward, Teixeira tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes rising raw material costs and a weak sales environment amid intensifying competition create downside risk to Kimberly-Clark's fiscal 2018 outlook.

Buy
Kimberly-Clark upgraded to Buy from Hold at Societe Generale
Societe Generale analyst Lain Simpson upgraded Kimberly-Clark to Buy saying the sell-off in shares is overdone and maintained a $131 price target. The analyst said US price competition is intense and input costs are rising, but these issues are well known and expects the operational recovery to be a medium term story.
