On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. United Continental (UAL), American Airlines (AAL), and Delta Airlines (DAL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Michael Linenberg saying in a world of "heightened" macroeconomic and geopolitical risks, economically-sensitive, high beta stocks such as airlines typically underperform the broader market. 2. Belmond (BEL) downgraded to Underweight from Overweight at Barclays with analyst Felicia Hendrix citing an analysis of the company's progress on its growth targets announced back in June 2016. 3. PSEG (PEG) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Jonathan Arnold saying The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission order raised new questions over New Jersey zero-emission credits. 4. PepsiCo (PEP) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Stephen Powers viewing the current valuation as a "bit bubbly." 5. Watsco (WSO), Fastenal (FAST), and Grainger (GWW) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird with analyst David Manthey saying he thinks the cycle and individual company results could remain solid for quarters or years to come, but he believes the cycle is in its later stages, thereby elevating risks to gross margins, rising labor costs, and earnings deceleration in 2019. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Fastenal price target lowered to $54 from $57 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst R. Scott Graham lowered his price target on Fastenal to $54 and kept his Market Perform rating as part of his broader research note previewing Q2 earnings for Industrial Distribution stocks. Graham notes that while he does not see a slowdown in sales or any indications of forthcoming weakness in short cycle for the group, his price target revision is driven by a "reduced relative to peers multiple assumption" because of the company's Q1 pricing trends and lack of leverage.

Fastenal mix pressures intensified, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst R. Scott Graham kept his Market Perform rating and $56 price target on Fastenal after its "slight" earnings beat in Q3. The analyst notes the company's weaker than expected gross margins however, adding that while he first believed the pressure came from insufficient pricing adjustments, the management discussions indicated that "price-cost" was neutral. Graham concludes that gross margin is likely to keep declining as sales mix pressures have intensified, while the company has also had to implement "tariff related countermeasures".

Fastenal initiated with a Neutral at Buckingham
Buckingham analyst Robert Barry initiated Fastenal with a Neutral and $50 price target saying risk/reward is not compelling. Barry expects gross margin pressure to become more severe in 2019 due to tariff impacts and views valuation as "full."
