Outperform
LendingTree price target lowered to $320 from $370 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Jed Kelly lowered his price target for LendingTree to $320 from $370, while reiterating an Outperform rating on the shares. The analyst notes that the shares are off 27% from the company's investor day, and he sees the stock as de-risked into Q2 on refinancing headwinds, limiting the potential for beating and raising its initial 2018 guidance. However, the analyst believes solid underlying fundamentals driving a disproportionate share of financial service advertising remain firmly intact, and thinks the market is under-appreciating the ability of LendingTree's product diversification and paid marketing efficiencies to generate high-20s VMM growth over the medium term.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Intel (INTC) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Bernstein with analyst Stacy Rasgon saying she sees the CEO change and leadership vacuum providing some protection from further upward revisions, EPS growth slowing into 2019 as compares get harder and structural issues build, and an increasingly competitive environment. 2. LendingTree (TREE) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Compass Point with analyst Michael Tarkan citing mortgage deceleration and remaining long-term cycle risks. 3. AMC Networks (AMCX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Drew Borst saying slowing advertising growth due to rating headwinds from The Walking Dead franchise and affiliate fee growth challenges in the pay TV ecosystem are a risk to earnings estimates. 4. Square (SQ) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens with analyst Brett Huff stating that after a "truly remarkable" stock price acceleration over the past two years, he thinks Square is a "special" company, but is taking a breather. 5. Incyte (INCY) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Brian Abrahams noting that as he previously suggested, the market overreacted to the setbacks suffered by the company's epacadostat and baricitini programs when he also forecasted a rally to reflect the "substantial Jakafi growth opportunity through its out-year patent cliff". This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
