On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Under Armour (UA, UAA) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Macquarie with analyst Laurent Vasilescu citing weaker North America revenues, flat Connected Fitness revenues, international revenues of up 21% year-over-year, gross margin pressure, and higher SG&A assumptions. 2. Verizon (VZ) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at MoffettNathanson. 3. Lockheed Martin (LMT) and Rockwell Collins (COL) were downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo. 4. Spirit Airlines (SAVE) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Joseph DeNardi saying he believes Spirit will benefit this year from an improving demand and revenue environment, but that its higher revenue risk relative to potential competitive responses to its expected capacity growth is not fully reflected in the stock at current levels. 5. Finisar (FNSR) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Doug Clark saying risks of oversupply and competition are heating up in the optical component landscape.

Equal Weight
With fewer likely buyers seen, Morgan Stanley cuts Dish to Equal Weight
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne downgraded Dish Network (DISH) to Equal Weight from Overweight as he now sees fewer likely buyers of its assets than hoped. T-Mobile (TMUS) has acquired significant additional spectrum, reducing the potential for a Dish partnership, tax reform will help Verizon (VZ) as it moves further towards small cell deployments in lieu of adding new spectrum, and the FCC is also considering a new auction, Swinburne tells investors. Additionally, the DOJ challenge of AT&T's (T) Time Warner (TWX) deal suggests a more challenging M&A backdrop than assumed for AT&T, which he had viewed as potentially the most logical buyer of Dish's DBS assets, Swinburne added. With Dish beginning to spend on its network in 2018 to boot, Swinburne lowered his price target on the stock to $55 from $75.

Schlumberger (SLB) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities. 4. Harley-Davidson (HOG) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst Timothy Conder saying investors are not appreciating the benefits of tax reform to Harley-Davidson. 5.
