Goldman downgrades ConocoPhillips to Neutral following share outperformance

Goldman Sachs analyst Neil Mehta downgraded ConocoPhillips (CVX) to Neutral citing valuation following the recent outperformance of the shares. The analyst remains positive on the company's strategy and execution, but now sees more attractive relative upside elsewhere, including Chevron (CVX). He has an $81 price target for shares of ConocoPhillips.

ConocoPhillips downgraded to Sector Perform at RBC Capital on peer valuation
As reported earlier, RBC Capital analyst Scott Hanold downgraded ConocoPhillips to Sector Perform from Outperform but raised his price target to $90 from $85. The analyst says that shareholders have already been rewarded by the management's model to deliver financial results, free cash flows, and capital to shareholders. With the stock up about 40% year-t0-date vs. 10%-15% peer average, Hanold says that peers have the potential for a greater rate of change as part of his otherwise "constructive" outlook on oil names.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Histogenics (HSGX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BTIG with analyst Ryan Zimmerman citing Histogenics announcement that its Phase 3 trial comparing NeoCart to microfracture surgery missed its primary endpoint. 2. Chevron (CVX) and ConocoPhillips (COP) were downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill. 3. Franklin Resources (BEN) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Kenneth Worthington saying he believes the more recent weakness in emerging markets, and in particular in emerging market debt, will weigh on both Franklin's organic growth and earnings potential. 4. HealthEquity (HQY) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Allen Lutz saying recent share strength fully discounts upside from interest rates and potential upside from a proposed Senate HSA bill that could add 10-15% to industry AUM. 5. Rio Tinto (RIO) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Investec. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
