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 Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst Joel Jackson citing the rising likelihood of the acquisition by Bayer (BAYRY) after yesterday's reports of approval of the merger by the U.S. Department of Justice. 2. Hershey (HSY) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Steven Strycula saying Hershey's portfolio is over-exposed to slowing category consumption, intensifying competition, and rising cocoa prices. 3. Cullen/Frost (CFR) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Raymond James. 4. vTv Therapeutics (VTVT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel, to Neutral from Buy at Seaport Global, Piper Jaffray, and Roth Capital, as well as to Market Perform from Outperform at Northland. 5. Radian Group (RDN) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Mark Dwelle citing the latest reduction in borrower-paid premium rates at MGIC Investment (MTG) and saying he believes sentiment in the space will be negatively impacted. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Monsanto downgraded to Market Perform at BMO Capital on Bayer deal prospects
As reported earlier, BMO Capital analyst Joel Jackson downgraded Monsanto (MON) to Market Perform from Outperform while keeping his $128 price target. Jackson cites the rising likelihood of the acquisition by Bayer (BAYRY) after yesterday's reports of approval of the merger by the U.S. Department of Justice. The analyst notes that since the stock price is now so close to Bayer's takeout price, the isn't "sufficient spread" to support a more bullish rating. In the event of a breakdown of the deal, Jackson sees downside support for the stock around $110 per share.
