Colgate-Palmolive downgraded to Neutral on margin, volume pressure at Macquarie
As previously reported, Macquarie downgraded Colgate-Palmolive to Neutral from Outperform and cut its price target to $65 from $74. Analyst Caroline Levy does not expect growth to accelerate over the next several quarters and lowered her FY18 organic sales estimate to .5% from 1% and FY19 to 2.2% from 3.2%. Levy comments organic sales growth will be underwhelming in Q2 and to remain that way the rest of the year as Colgate attempts to protect margins with price hikes beginning in Q3, putting even more pressure on volumes. Further, Levy expects 2H margins to be hurt by higher freight costs, rising commodity costs, and FX headwinds.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Colgate-Palmolive (CL) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Macquarie with analyst Caroline Levy saying she does not expect growth to accelerate over the next several quarters and lowered her FY18 organic sales estimate to 0.5% from 1% and FY19 to 2.2% from 3.2%. 2. Alaska Air (ALK) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Macquarie. 3. Perrigo (PRGO) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst Jasper Hellweg citing the challenges faced by the company around the "industry-wide price erosion, a legal investigation, and a reduction in FDA approvals." 4. Synchronoss (SNCR) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Stifel with analyst Tom Roderick saying recent filings reveal that liquidity issues loom, the company is "out of levers, and time is not on their side." 5. Synchrony (SYF) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays with analyst Mark Devries saying the loss of the Walmart (WMT) credit card business heightens contract renewal risk and caps upside in the stock.

Colgate-Palmolive price target raised to $75 from $72 at Argus
Argus analyst Chris Graja raised his price target on Colgate Palmolive to $75 and kept his Buy rating, saying the company's valuation multiple of 23-times trailing earnings vs. 26.8-times historical average is attractive. The analyst is also raising his 5-year earnings growth forecast for Colgate Palmolive to 7% from 6%, citing its expansion opportunities in the emerging markets. Graja contends that the markets' "rapid population increases, an expanding middle class, and the underutilization of personal care products" position the company to be successful based on its brand recognition and leading market share.
