On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Visa (V) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Eric Wasserstrom assuming coverage and saying he believes the current valuation already discounts the company's positive outlook. The analyst lowered his price target for the shares to $141 from $144. 2. Applied Materials (AMAT) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Toshiya Hari citing the company's second quarter results. 3. Skyworks (SWKS) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Chris Caso saying at this point in the year, Skyworks' management has high visibility into the smartphone content cycle, with the only variable being phone units. 4. First Financial Bancorp (FFBC) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at DA Davidson with analyst Kevin Reevey citing valuation. 5. Planet Fitness (PLNT) downgraded to In-Line from Outperform at Imperial Capital with analyst George Kelly saying he views the shares, after rallying 185% since his April 2016 initiation, as fully valued. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
