Piedmont Office Realty downgraded to Sell from Hold at Stifel
Stifel analyst John Guinee downgraded Piedmont Office Realty Trust to Sell and lowered his price target for the shares to $15 from $18. The analyst thinks the current share repurchase program is supporting the share price and that once concluded, the shares will underperform. He sees a "continuation of a long track record of no value creation" and a resumption of "weak" lease economics.
