Monsanto downgraded to Market Perform at BMO Capital on Bayer deal prospects
As reported earlier, BMO Capital analyst Joel Jackson downgraded Monsanto (MON) to Market Perform from Outperform while keeping his $128 price target. Jackson cites the rising likelihood of the acquisition by Bayer (BAYRY) after yesterday's reports of approval of the merger by the U.S. Department of Justice. The analyst notes that since the stock price is now so close to Bayer's takeout price, the isn't "sufficient spread" to support a more bullish rating. In the event of a breakdown of the deal, Jackson sees downside support for the stock around $110 per share.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Monsanto (MON) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst Joel Jackson citing the rising likelihood of the acquisition by Bayer (BAYRY) after yesterday's reports of approval of the merger by the U.S. Department of Justice. 2. Hershey (HSY) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Steven Strycula saying Hershey's portfolio is over-exposed to slowing category consumption, intensifying competition, and rising cocoa prices. 3. Cullen/Frost (CFR) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Raymond James. 4. vTv Therapeutics (VTVT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel, to Neutral from Buy at Seaport Global, Piper Jaffray, and Roth Capital, as well as to Market Perform from Outperform at Northland. 5. Radian Group (RDN) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Mark Dwelle citing the latest reduction in borrower-paid premium rates at MGIC Investment (MTG) and saying he believes sentiment in the space will be negatively impacted.

Monsanto downgraded to Sell from Buy at Argus
Argus analyst Bill Selesky issued a double-notch downgrade on Monsanto (MON) to Sell from Buy after the U.S. Justice Department approved its acquisition by Bayer (BAYRY) last week. The analyst says the deal is expected to be further approved by Canadian and Mexican regulators and completed by the end of Q2. As part of the approval, the analyst points to the companies' pledge to sell additional assets even as Monsanto stock trades just below Bayer's acquisition price of $128 per share.

Brazil ruling a 'big negative' for Monsanto, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Jonas Oxgaard noted the news that a Brazilian judge has ordered local units of Monsanto (MON) in the state of Mato Grosso to deposit royalties for Intacta RR2 Pro into an escrow account, which he calls a "big negative" for Monsanto as he estimates it keeps about $200M in royalties from the company and Bayer (BAYRY) in the next season. The news is also a "minor negative" for DowDuPont (DWDP), Oxgaard tells investors.
