Norfolk Southern downgraded to Sell from Hold at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Rick Paterson downgraded Norfolk Southern to Sell and cut his price target for the shares to $120 from $133. The company's operating efficiency metrics "look like a bit of a disaster at present," Paterson tells investors in a research note. Weak operating numbers are typically followed by margin erosion, "but the market doesn't believe it until it sees it in an earnings report, and by then it's too late," the analyst adds. He recommends investors "get out of Dodge" with respect to Norfolk Southern shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Square (SQ) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Mark Palmer saying he believes the stock's valuation reflects "emphatic and unimpeded growth" but fails to factor in the risks facing the company from increasing competition from First Data's (FDC) Clover, Vantiv (VNTV) and others. 2. Western Digital (WDC) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Katy Huberty saying she believes the NAND industry is entering a downturn for the first time since early 2016. 3. Norfolk Southern (NSC) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Loop Capital with analyst Rick Paterson saying the company's operating efficiency metrics "look like a bit of a disaster at present." 4. TSMC (TSM) and Himax (HIMX) were downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley. 5. Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Dennis Geiger saying the risk/reward is more balanced following the recent share rally.

RBC Capital raises price targets for Rails on Q4 volume growth and tax reform
RBC Capital analyst Walter Spracklin previews Q4 earnings for the Rail sector, saying volume grew about 4% while other performance metrics have been in line with prior years that saw similar growth rates. The analyst raises his price target on Canadian Pacific (CP) to CAD256 from CAD238 with an Outperform rating, calling it his "preferred name" based on solid volume, pricing trends, and relatively attractive valuation. Spracklin also ups CSX (CSX) price target to $67 from $59 with an Outperform rating, Norfolk Southern (NSC) price target to $137 from $123 with an Underperform rating, and Union Pacific (UNP) price target to $140 from $124 with a Sector Perform rating to reflect the positive impact of the U.S. corporate tax reform.

Sell
Norfolk Southern price target raised to $144 from $120 at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Rick Paterson raised his price target on Norfolk Southern to $144 to reflect the expected positive impact from lower U.S. corporate tax rates. Paterson keeps his Sell rating however, noting the company's average train speed saw another low point of 19.4 mph last week, even though the management's commentary on November 29th suggested that 20.1 mph average speed recorded in early November was the low. The analyst says he is skeptical that the management can achieve its sub-65 operating ratio target by 2020, and sees the latest disappointing metrics as a sign that leadership does not understand its business or that the network is extremely fragile.
