Goldman downgraded Avangrid to Neutral on 'significant' guidance risk
Goldman Sachs analyst Michael Lapides downgraded Avangrid to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $50 from $56. The analyst says his revised earnings estimates now imply "significant downside risk" to company guidance and consensus numbers, especially for 2020. Lapides reduces his 2018-2020 earnings estimates for Avangrid to account for revised rate case assumptions for the New York utilities given the company's intent to file for a rate case in mid-2019, the delayed timing of capital spend for major projects in New York, and "weak" Q3 earnings results.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Electronic Arts (EA) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc with analyst Evan Wingren saying he expects negative estimate revisions, and has diminished confidence in the pipeline, which is likely to continue to limit valuation expansion in the near-term. 2. Colgate-Palmolive (CL) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Andrea Teixeira saying she sees the company's "weak growth" continuing amid intense competition and cost challenges. 3. Palo Alto Networks (PANW) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Summit Insights. 4. Western Digital (WDC) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Loop Capital with analyst Ananda Baruah saying his work on the company's Q3 results has led to a conclusion that NAND memory average selling price declines could "exacerbate entering January" and believes that consensus view on the company's FY19 EPS remains too high. 5. Avangrid (AGR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Michael Lapides saying his revised earnings estimates now imply "significant downside risk" to company guidance and consensus numbers, especially for 2020.

UnitedHealth price target raised to $310 from $300 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Matt Borsch raised his price target on UnitedHealth to $310 and kept his Outperform rating, saying the company's "very solid" Q3 results represent a turn in focus toward 2019. The analyst states that in addition to "many areas of strong execution", the key takeaway for the quarter was "relief on medical cost trend", which he sees as pivotal to the company achieving a near-30% earnings growth in FY18.

LabCorp downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus
Argus analyst Jasper Hellweg downgraded LabCorp (LH) to Hold from Buy after its Q3 earnings miss and a cut in FY18 guidance. The analyst notes that the company is faced with pressure from "lower lab testing payment rates mandated by the Protecting Access to Medicaid Act of 2014" along with business disruptions and the impact of acquisitions which resulted in lowers margins for the quarter. Hellweg further cites LabCorp's loss of "status as the exclusive national provider of laboratory services to UnitedHealthcare (UNH)" to rival Quest Diagnostics (DGX). In spite of these short-term challenges, the analyst also maintains a positive outlook for LabCorp on a long-term basis, adding that he would "consider an upgrade if the stock stabilized at the support level of $147 per share."

Gilead sales not at risk from UnitedHealth promotions, says Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst Umer Raffat attributes the pullback today in shares of Gilead Sciences (GILD) to concerns over the company's HIV franchise given UnitedHealth's (UNH) promotions of cheaper alternatives. UnitedHealth (UNH) is offering a rewards plan to patients starting with HIV medications to help promote the use of lower priced drugs, Jefferies analyst Michael Yee pointed out earlier today in a research note. Raffat, however, does not see risk to Gilead's sales from the promotions. UnitedHealth's is proposing a switch to two separate tablets, which is not in the HIV guidelines today, says the analyst. He keeps an Outperform rating on Gilead shares, which are down 6% to $68.00 in afternoon trading.

Mizuho says concerns over UnitedHealth program impact on Gilead seem unwarranted
Mizuho analyst Salim Syed blames UnitedHealth's (UNH) introduction of a new a program, called "My ScriptRewards," that will try to convince plan participants to take a cheaper HIV regimen in return for $500 in debit cards for the weakness in shares of Gilead (GILD). However, the analyst views the worries as unwarranted, noting that Cimduo is the "common thread" between all of the regimens that UnitedHealth's program calls out and it is an inferior drug to Gilead's Biktarvy. Biktarvy is the backbone of the number one recommended regimen according to HHS treatment guidelines, noted Syed, who keeps a Buy rating and $94 price target on Gilead shares.
