First Financial upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette

Keefe Bruyette analyst Christopher McGratty upgraded First Financial Bancorp to Outperform while lowering his price target for the shares to $32 from $34. Following Friday's 9% pullback the shares now trade at a mid-single-digit relative price-to-earnings discount despite "top-quartile" profitability and a "safe" balance sheet, McGratty tells investors in a research note. He says the recent selloff is what he's been waiting for to get more constructive on the stock.

First Financial Bancorp upgraded to Buy at DA Davidson
As reported earlier, DA Davidson analyst Kevin Reevey upgraded First Financial Bancorp to Buy from Neutral with a price target of $35, saying the valuation on the stock is more attractive at a month-to-date decline of 0.5% relative to the 4.9% rise for the Nasdaq bank index. The analyst adds that the bank is now trading at 11.9-times his forward earnings estimate, which is a 12% discount relative to the peer group, even though First Financial's operating metrics and "enhanced" growth trajectory suggest that it should trade at a premium.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Visa (V) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Eric Wasserstrom assuming coverage and saying he believes the current valuation already discounts the company's positive outlook. The analyst lowered his price target for the shares to $141 from $144. 2. Applied Materials (AMAT) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Toshiya Hari citing the company's second quarter results. 3. Skyworks (SWKS) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Chris Caso saying at this point in the year, Skyworks' management has high visibility into the smartphone content cycle, with the only variable being phone units. 4. First Financial Bancorp (FFBC) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at DA Davidson with analyst Kevin Reevey citing valuation. 5. Planet Fitness (PLNT) downgraded to In-Line from Outperform at Imperial Capital with analyst George Kelly saying he views the shares, after rallying 185% since his April 2016 initiation, as fully valued.
