Nielsen downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Barclays

Barclays analyst Manav Patnaik downgraded Nielsen Holdings to Underweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $38 from $45. The analyst sees challenging end markets for the company as well as credibility concerns following a year of "poor" execution. Patnaik is not calling Nielsen an outright short at these levels, but expects the stock to underperform.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
