Underperform
GNC Holdings options remain limited, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Curtis Nagle reiterated his Underperform rating and $2.50 price target on GNC Holdings saying he is skeptical that a turnaround under the One GNC strategy will lead to sustainable profitable growth. Nagle said GNC is lapping substantial price cuts this year that will make comp and gross margin growth difficult, and believes the company will have difficulty refinancing its $1.1B term loan without doing so at stiff rate.

Amazon remains low-price leader in supplements, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Shane Higgins conducted an online pricing study comparing 80 identical third-party online vitamin and supplement products at GNC Holdings (GNC), Vitamin Shoppe (VSI), Amazon (AMZN) and Bodybuilding.com. The study found that Amazon "easily expanded" its price advantage against each of the other three retailers, Higgins tells investors in a research note. Among the specialty players, Vitamin Shoppe slightly improved its price advantage versus GNC, the analyst adds. He expects Amazon to keep pressure on the specialty players, particularly as its Prime membership grows.

GNC Holdings price target raised to $12 from $10 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Christopher Horvers raised his price target for GNC Holdings to $12 saying yesterday's earnings and comp beat "take off the table the terminal value question that many investors were focused on." The question, however, is if the traffic is sustainable and whether GNC can turn the decline in average ticket up, Horvers tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The analyst keeps a Neutral rating on the shares.

Outperform
GNC Holdings shares pricing in 'draconian' outcomes, says Macquarie
Macquarie analyst Bob Summers said GNC Holdings' Q4 and near-term results will prove challenging but management has made decisions that will significantly increase the company's long-term potential to succeed by simplifying pricing and having consistent in-store and online pricing. The analyst said these efforts will pressure margins, but shares are pricing in "draconian" outcomes with shares trading at just over 4x P/E. Summers expects free cash flow to remain positive, which could be further enhanced by cutting the dividend and notes there are no near-term debt maturities to create credit risk. The analyst said even a "slight bend" in same-store sales trends could produce a dramatic positive outcome and reiterates his Outperform rating and $20 price target on GNC Holdings.

Under Armour discounting down dramatically in last three months, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Randal Konik says his firms' February webscrapes point to better traction at Under Armour (UAA) with discounts down in each of the last three months. The company's discounts decreased from 70% in November to 23% in February, down more than 30% year-over-year this month, Konik tells investors in a research note. Further, a survey of 200 footwear retailers shows the Under Armour HOVR Phantom is building momentum, the analyst adds. In addition, the survey shows Nike (NKE) is gaining back share from adidas (ADDYY) in running across the U.S. and Europe. In Basketball, Nike continues to dominate, while Under Armour's Curry 4 is resonating well with consumers, Konik writes. The analyst has a Buy rating on Under Armour and Hold rating on Nike.

Jefferies sees too much management turnover at lululemon
The level of management turnover at lululemon during "this critical juncture in the company's growth trajectory gives us some pause," Jefferies analyst Randal Konik tells investors in a research note following the resignation of CEO Laurent Potdevin. The analyst sees better opportunities elsewhere, namely in shares of Under Armour (UAA), given lululemon's "high" valuation high and "less plentiful" margin opportunity going forward. He maintains a Hold rating on lululemon with a $72 price target.

Under Armour downgraded to Underperform at Macquarie
As previously reported, Macquarie analyst Laurent Vasilescu downgraded Under Armour to Underperform from Neutral and cut its price target to $8 from $10. Vasilescu lowered his FY18 EBIT to $25M from $85M to reflect weaker North America revenues, flat Connected Fitness revenues, international revenues of up 21% year-over-year, gross margin pressure, and higher SG&A assumptions. The analyst expects the credit agreement will need to be amended and expects Under Armour will need a capital raise if gross margins and SG&A continue to deteriorate.

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.

Cowen downgrades Johnson Controls on less attractive risk/reward
Cowen analyst Gautam Khanna downgraded Johnson Controls to Market Perform from Outperform and lowered his price target for the shares to $42 from $44. The company's "poor actual" free cash flow is an overhang on the shares given its high net debt and low free cash flow yield, Khanna tells investors in a research note. He believes the company's balance sheet repair will take time and that risk/reward is less attractive at current share levels.

Teva (TEVA) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo with analyst David Maris saying Teva shares have now risen approximately 80% from its lows in November. 3. Roku (ROKU) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi with analyst Mark May saying the stock is up 266% from its initial public offering price of $14 just three months ago. 4. Johnson Controls (JCI) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird with analyst Timothy Wojs saying valuation is fair in light of slower growth, lower free-cash flow conversion, and "choppier" execution. 5. Wingstop (WING) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush with analyst Nick Setyan saying while drivers of "solid" low single-digit same-store sales growth in 2018 exist, current consensus estimates may prove "overly optimistic."
