On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Dean Foods (DF) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank analyst Rob Dickerson saying he still sees four fundamental challenges facing the company: continued declines in U.S. dairy milk consumption, its low-margin structured business, increasing vertical category integration by retailers, and what he views as low odds of transformative acquisitions. 2. Owens Corning (OC) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Stephen East saying his outlook for Roofing and Composites has weakened and extremely weak year to date 2018 hail/storm activity is likely an incremental headwind to 2H18 Shingle Volumes while inflationary cost pressures are more intense than originally expected. 3. Xerox (XRX) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan and to Hold from Buy at Cross Research. 4. Jeld-Wen (JELD) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst John Lovallo saying he believes the company will face challenges from the CEO search, Steves & Sons litigation, wood windows, and believes a margin recovery could take longer than expected. 5. Hostess Brands (TWNK) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Rob Dickerson saying he is less certain on the base business' potential margin and profitability progression over the next twelve months following the company's recent earnings report.

Buy
Hostess Brands initiated with a Buy at Berenberg
Berenberg analyst Adam Mizrahi started Hostess Brands with a Buy rating and $15 price target. The company's "powerful structural advantage" in operating a warehouse model is underappreciated, Mizrahi tells investors in a research note. He highlights the company's industry-leading EBITDA margins despite its above-average levels of marketing support.
