Jefferies sees waning bull thesis for Procter & Gamble, downgrades to Hold
Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy downgraded Procter & Gamble (PG) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $79 from $83. The stock closed Friday up 12c to $79.31. Slowing market growth, volatility in emerging markets, U.S. retail difficulties, the stronger U.S. dollar and "pricing challenges" should drive estimates lower, Grundy tells investors in a research note titled "Tide Unlikely to Turn: Downgrade to Hold as Bull Thesis Wanes." While activist and strategic considerations remain, P&G's multiple can de-rate, the analyst contends. Grundy prefers shares of Church & Dwight (CHD) and Energizer (ENR) for exposure to the Home and Personal Care space.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Procter & Gamble (PG) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Kevin Grundy saying slowing market growth, volatility in emerging markets, U.S. retail difficulties, the stronger U.S. dollar and "pricing challenges" should drive estimates lower. 2. SeaWorld (SEAS) and Six Flags (SIX) were downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo. 3. Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Ralph Giacobbe saying he finds it difficult to argue for "meaningful multiple expansion" given headwinds from industry pressures and a dynamic and changing backdrop. 4.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. GAMESTOP STARTED WITH A BUY: Jefferies analyst Stephanie Wissink started GameStop (GME) with a Buy rating and $18 price target. Her contrarian view on the stock is that under potential new leadership with a well defined vision and execution plan, the stock's valuation, which she feels is "overlooked and overly discounted," could improve. GameStop is higher by 2.5% in midday trading. PIPER SEES CISCO LOSING SECURITY SHARE TO PALO ALTO: Piper Jaffray analyst James Fish says his firm's recent channel survey work across networking and security were weaker than he's seen in past calendar quarters for Cisco Systems (CSCO). Cisco's Security survey results were "especially weak," implying Palo Alto Networks (PANW) is taking market share, the analyst said, although the former remains his top networking pick. He kept an Overweight rating on Cisco shares, which were down almost 1% in midday trading. JEFFERIES DOWNGRADES P&G: Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy downgraded Procter & Gamble (PG) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $79 from $83. Slowing market growth, volatility in emerging markets, U.S. retail difficulties, the stronger U.S. dollar and "pricing challenges" should drive estimates lower, Grundy told investors in a research note titled "Tide Unlikely to Turn: Downgrade to Hold as Bull Thesis Wanes." Grundy said he preferred shares of Church & Dwight (CHD) and Energizer (ENR) for exposure to the Home and Personal Care space. TRADE DESK STARTED WITH A SELL: Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser initiated Trade Desk (TTD) with a Sell rating and $58 price target, stating that he believes the company can grow rapidly this year but should then see its growth decelerate. He believes its growth will plateau at a size smaller than Criteo's (CRTO), on which Wieser also initiated coverage this morning with a Buy rating. WELLS FARGO DOWNGRADES TWO THEME PARKS: Wells Fargo analyst Timothy Conder downgraded both SeaWorld (SEAS) and Six Flags (SIX) to Market Perform from Outperform, citing valuation, negative seasonal trading patterns, and weather impact, despite ongoing favorable consumer fundamentals and the key Q3 just starting. SeaWorld is trading down 1.3%, while Six Flags is down 1.7% at midday.
