AeroVironment well-positioned to win new Army contract, says Stifel
Separate from AeroVironment's (AVAV) recent Switchblade contract announcement, Stifel analyst Joseph DeNardi highlighted that the Army recently posted a request for information for Switchblade production from FY19-FY26. DeNardi said it is unclear what the likelihood is that AeroVironment continues to be the sole-source Switchblade provider as it has been from FY17-FY19, as he assumes multiple contractors will reply and suspects that offerings presumably from companies like Raytheon (RTN), Textron (TXT) and possibly Lockheed (LMT) will be more mature than they were a few years ago. Still, he is encouraged by the length of the performance period for the new RFI and views AeroVironment as well-positioned to win the competition, DeNardi tells investors. He keeps a Buy rating and $65 price target on the stock.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. AeroVironment (AVAV) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Joseph DeNardi citing valuation, but he continues to maintain a positive bias on the stock. 2. Beacon Roofing (BECN) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Michael Eisen saying he sees a threat to consensus estimates based on the higher oil price and freight costs amid declining industry demand. 3. Green Plains (GPRE) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens with analyst Farha Aslam stating that its restructuring plan is a long-term positive, but in the near-term the company may be "forced to cut muscle." 4. Mattel (MAT) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at DA Davidson with analyst Linda Bolton Weiser noting that the stock price has risen 29% from its April low even though the company's fundamentals have not improved. 5. Aquinox (AQXP) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Needham with analyst Alan Carr noting that the company's Phase 3 trial of rosiptor in Interstitial Cyrstitis failed to demonstrate efficacy, with no evidence of activity at any point or within any subset of patient subset.

Neutral
AeroVironment price target raised to $77 from $56 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen raised his price target for AeroVironment to $77 saying the company reported "strong" fiscal Q1 results with revenue and earnings well above Street expectations. Strong sales were primarily due to strength in unmanned aircraft, which should continue due to President Trump's focus on military defense spending with the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 coming into effect, Jensen tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The analyst remains bullish on AeroVironment's long-term opportunities but views the stock as fully valued at current levels. As such, he reiterates a Neutral rating on the name.
