On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Monsanto (MON) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Laurence Alexander saying Bayer's (BAYRY) all-cash offer appears on track for year-end. The analyst views the deal failing as a "low-probability scenario" and keeps a $128 price target for the shares. 2. Freeport McMoRan (FCX) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Berenberg. 3. Kimberly-Clark (KMB) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Stephen Powers saying the stock's 11% rise year-to-date is not based on fundamentals but news flow of consolidation in the Household Products sector. 4. Harley-Davidson (HOG) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein with analyst David Beckel citing his belief that "demographic shifts and a stagnating economy" will prevent demand for the company's motorcycles from growing in the U.S. for the next five years. 5. IMAX (IMAX) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Barrington with analyst James Goss saying positive catalysts "might take some time to develop."

Monsanto downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS
UBS analyst John Roberts downgraded Monsanto (MON) to Neutral saying the shares are now less than 10% away from the accepted Bayer (BAYRY) offer of $128. The analyst calculates that the market is currently pricing in a 70% chance of the deal going through. His view that the deal could be approved remains unchanged. Approvals of peer deals suggest antitrust approval likely for Monsanto, Roberts tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps a $128 price target for Monsanto shares.

Bernstein still sees 'very high' probability of Bayer, Monsanto deal approval
Bernstein analyst Jeremy Redenius notes that the European Commission has opened an in-depth review of the Bayer (BAYRY)/Monsanto (MON) deal due to concerns of reduced competition in pesticides, seeds, and traits. The analyst believes this is not surprising, as the in-depth review is the norm for deals of this size. Comparing the EC's initial concerns with those of the Dow/DuPont (DWDP) deal, he still sees a "very high" probability of deal approval.
