The analyst expects Amazon's investment levels to remain elevated in the near-term and he views consensus operating income estimates for the second quarter as aggressive. 2. General Electric (GE) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Andrew Obin saying he sees headwinds from weaker Oil & Gas margin, Healthcare, and Power and reduced estimates below consensus. 3. Conagra Brands (CAG) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Steven Strycula citing expectations the stock's relative valuation premium will contract amid a decelerating rate of margin improvement and "limited room" for positive earnings estimate revisions. Conagra's portfolio is not well positioned for a consolidating merchandise set, the analyst contends. He cut his price target for the shares to $35 from $38. 4. NGL Energy Partners (NGL) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at FBR Capital with analyst Robert Balsamo saying the company's guidance reflects underappreciated risks to its cash flows. 5. Akorn (AKRX) was downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies and Craig-Hallum, to Market Perform from Outperform at William Blair, and to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray.
