On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Seaspan (SSW) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Amit Mehrotra citing the recent strong performance of the shares and increased risk from the trade war between China and the U.S. 2. Bruker (BRKR) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Steve Beuchaw citing three company-specific leading indicators that he says point to a slower revenue outlook. 3. Stitch Fix (SFIX) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Erinn Murphy citing valuation. 4. Nutrien (NTR) downgraded to Outperform from Focus List at Scotiabank. 5. JD.com (JD) downgraded to Underperform from Outperform at CLSA with the firm lowering its price target to $29 and saying the second half will remain challenging.

Underweight
Bruker downgraded to Underweight on end market worries at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Steve Beuchaw downgraded Bruker to Underweight from Equal Weight, citing three company-specific leading indicators that he says point to a slower revenue outlook. He sees a deceleration in key markets in semiconductors and materials, which Beuchaw notes represent about 20% of Bruker's sales but only about 7% for the Tools industry; his survey work highlights moderating growth expectations in its key NMR segments; and comps over the next 12 months are tougher than they were over the last year. Beuchaw lowered his revenue estimates for Bruker by 2% and 6%, respectively, for 2019 and 2020 but raised his price target slightly to $32 from $31 to account for a higher group multiple.
