On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Commercial Metals (CMC) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi analyst Alexander Hacking saying multiple new rebar projects announced in recent months will offset the benefit of lower imports. 2. GameStop (GME) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Loop Capital with analyst Anthony Chukumba saying while the company's core video game business improved in fiscal 2017, its Technology Brands "dramatically underperformed," and collectibles sales missed expectations. 3. Manpower (MAN) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Manav Patnaik saying he believes good news is reflected in the current valuation and he expects Manpower to underperform its Temp Staffing peers. 4. Cancer Genetics (CGIX) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Maxim with analyst Jason McCarthy citing the company's "disappointing" fourth quarter revenues and what he views as a lack of strategic direction at the company. 5. Weatherford (WFT) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Bill Herbert saying the company's turnaround is taking longer than expected, and its balance sheet is "prodigiously heavy."

Outperform
GameStop price target lowered to $18 from $23 at Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian lowered his price target on GameStop to $18 from $23 following Q4 results. The analyst said the results reflect the Switch hardware revenues during the holiday season and strong contributions from new software. He noted management announced a pivot toward optimizing existing stores and operations albeit on lower margins. The new strategy is reflected in his price target reduction. Sebastian maintained his Outperform rating on GameStop 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. GameStop (GME) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill by analyst Curtis nagle, who said he no longer believes GameStop's non-gaming segments will be sources of growth or earnings over the next few years and cut estimates well below the Street for 2018. He expects increased earnings pressure in 2019 and beyond as strong sales from the Nintendo Switch and Collectibles expansion, and lower tax rate are lapped. 2. Cloud Peak Energy (CLD) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst John Bridges, saying he sees higher risk for the company from lower natural gas prices as production ramps up from the Permian basin. He also believes Cloud Peak has a "lesser diversified production profile" with exposure to thermal coal only. 3. Starbucks (SBUX) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush. 4. ViaSat (VSAT) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Barclays by analyst Mathieu Robilliard. The analyst sees see continued risk for oversupply in the satellite industry. The sector stock price performance has started to reflect these concerns, apart from ViaSat which has outperformed peers, Robilliard said, adding that he believes the current stock price reflects assumptions that are too optimistic. 5. DiamondRock (DRH) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Boenning & Scattergood by analyst Floris van Dijkum following share strength related to the LaSalle Hotel (LHO) bid announcement as he believes shares are not overly discounted relative to hotel peers.

GameStop downgraded to Hold from Buy at Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba downgraded GameStop to Hold and cut his price target for the shares to $14 from $26. The shares closed yesterday up 20c to $12.82. While the company's core video game business improved in fiscal 2017, its Technology Brands "dramatically underperformed," and collectibles sales missed expectations, Chukumba tells investors in a research note. The analyst is concerned with GameStop's declining sales and profitability in pre-owned and value video game products and believes management's reluctance to repurchase stock "sends a worrisome signal to investors." He sees a "lack of positive catalysts on the horizon" for the shares.

Deutsche Bank ups Abercrombie target to $17, reiterates Sell rating
Deutsche Bank analyst Tiffany Kanaga raised her price target for Abercrombie & Fitch to $17 from $14 following the company's Q4 results but reiterates a Sell rating on the name. While the analyst expects positive total company comps to carry forward through the first half of 2018 before "very tough compares" in the second half, she expects EBITDA dollars to remain down mid- to high-teens in 2018 and 2019. Kanaga is "highly skeptical" of Abercrombie's ability to stabilize margin against "what is still a competitive mall-based apparel backdrop."
