Sell
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.
