Nielsen could conclude strategic review in next 3 months, says Morgan Stanley

Morgan Stanley analyst Toni Kaplan reiterated an Overweight rating and $26 price target for Nielsen Holdings, telling investors in a research note that she believes the company could conclude its planned strategic review with a sale of the Buy business or a sale of the entire company, and says the decision could occur in the next three months. She believes that, given the results that have been found in other strategic review processes as well as recent activist activity, no sale at all is potentially the least likely outcome.

Outperform
Nielsen upgraded to Outperform following Elliott stake at Macquarie
As previously reported, Macquarie upgraded Nielsen to Outperform from Neutral and raised its price target to $34 from $28. Analyst Tim Nollen said activist investor Elliott Management's 8.4% stake in Nielsen will result in either a sale of the entire company, splitting it in two, or selling the Buy division and keeping Watch as a public company. Nollen believes a rapid sales process could happen given the early retirement of CEO Mitch Barns at the end of the year with private equity leading the way.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Facebook (FB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Edward Jones. 2. LogMeln (LOGM) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray and JPMorgan, to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital, and to Neutral from Outperform at Baird. 3. Nielsen (NLSN) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at BMO Capital with analyst Daniel Salmon saying a material change in risk-reward amid deceleration of Emerging Buy, the announcement of CEO retirement, and the strategic review of the Buy segment. 4. Intel (INTC) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Summit Insights and to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill as well as Citi. 5. Deckers Brands (DECK) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Jim Duffy saying he is being "valuation aware" and thinks further meaningful upside may prove limited despite the company's Q1 report showing evidence of strong management execution towards their margin improvement plans. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
