On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. United Continental (UAL), American Airlines (AAL), and Delta Airlines (DAL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Michael Linenberg saying in a world of "heightened" macroeconomic and geopolitical risks, economically-sensitive, high beta stocks such as airlines typically underperform the broader market. 2. Belmond (BEL) downgraded to Underweight from Overweight at Barclays with analyst Felicia Hendrix citing an analysis of the company's progress on its growth targets announced back in June 2016. 3. PSEG (PEG) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Jonathan Arnold saying The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission order raised new questions over New Jersey zero-emission credits. 4. PepsiCo (PEP) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Stephen Powers viewing the current valuation as a "bit bubbly." 5. Watsco (WSO), Fastenal (FAST), and Grainger (GWW) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird with analyst David Manthey saying he thinks the cycle and individual company results could remain solid for quarters or years to come, but he believes the cycle is in its later stages, thereby elevating risks to gross margins, rising labor costs, and earnings deceleration in 2019.

Market Perform
Wells Fargo cautious on PepsiCo fundamentals into Q2 results
Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog is cautious on PepsiCo's fundamentals ahead of the company's Q2 earnings results on July 10. The analyst reduced her fiscal 2018 and 2019 estimates to reflect continued weakness in North American beverages, lower sales in Latin America following the May trucker strike in Brazil and incremental currency headwinds. However, despite these continued pressures, the market could react favorably to PepsiCo management providing more details on their ultimate plans for the Beverage business, Herzog tells investors in a pre-earnings research note titled "PEP: We're Not Feeling So Bubly About PEP's Q2 Fundamentals." The analyst keeps a Market Perform rating on PepsiCo with a $107 price target.

The analyst keeps his Sector Perform rating and $111 price target on PepsiCo.
