CBS downgraded to Neutral on lawsuit overhang at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill downgraded CBS to Neutral from Buy and cut its price target to $58 from $78. Analyst Jessica Reif said the lawsuit brought by CBS and the special committee alleging a breach of fiduciary duty by the National Amusements Inc. is a significant overhang for shares and will constrain outperformance until a ruling. Further, Reif sees increased risk that CEO Leslie Moonves could leave the company, which would elevate execution risk.

CBS shares likely return to mid-$60's with no merger, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker sees three potential paths unfolding for CBS (CBS) and Viacom (VIAB). The first being CBS remaining a standalone company with Les Moonves in charge. In this scenario the analyst sees CBS shares re-rating to $64, but ultimately being worth $78, and Viacom retreating to $26.50, but being worth $35-$39. The second scenario has CBS and Viacom merging with Moonves in charge. Under this, the new CBS is worth $55 per share with Viacom taken out at $32, Ryvicker tells investors in a research note. Her third scenario has CBS and Viacom merging with Bob Bakish in charge. The analyst values the new CBS at $44 per share in this scenario. At this point, Ryvicker favors a go-it-alone strategy for CBS. She also likes what Bakish is doing at Viacom. The analyst keeps Market Perform rating on both stocks, however, citing the lack of visibility on the outcome or timing.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Molson Coors (TAP) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Mark Swartzberg saying he sees multiple expansion as unlikely because U.S. beer industry volume trends are getting worse, the company's U.S. share trends are not improving, and demographics favor continued pressure on per capita alcohol consumption. 2. Progressive (PGR) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Keefe Bruyette with analyst Meyer Shields citing valuation. 3. CBS (CBS) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Jessica Reif saying the lawsuit brought by CBS and the special committee alleging a breach of fiduciary duty by the National Amusements Inc. is a significant overhang for shares and will constrain outperformance until a ruling. 4. Canadian National (CNI) downgraded to Neutral on valuation at Macquarie with analyst Konark Gupta citing valuation. 5. Jounce Therapeutics (JNCE) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Jim Birchenough saying overall response rates for JTX-2011 monotherapy in gastric cancer and in triple negative breast cancer, as well as for JTX-2011 plus Opdivo in gastric cancer and in triple negative breast cancer are "underwhelming" and "not competitive with other investigational drugs."
