Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Asset managers BlackRock (BLK), Eaton Vance (EV), Ivesco (IVZ), Affiliated Managers (AMG) and Legg Mason (LM) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank, with analyst Brian Bedell saying their fundamentals are "unlikely to improve anytime soon." The analyst believes "investor neglect" toward the stocks should continue on fears of a market downturn, as well as due to poor fundamentals from product outflows and pressure on fee rates and operating margins. 2. Starbucks (SBUX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs by analyst Karen Holthouse, saying she remains "reasonably confident" that Starbucks' initiatives to drive digital engagement can lead to a "more stable" 3%-4% comp trajectory in the U.S. over the next few years. However, its valuation has "rapidly re-rated" to reflect this, and gift cards and digital trends could be points of caution in fiscal Q1. The analyst also downgraded Yum! Brands (YUM) to Sell from Neutral. 3. Gap (GPS) downgraded to Underweight from Overweight at Barclays, with analyst Chethan Mallela saying he believes "challenging" traffic trends and "difficult" comparisons cloud visibility into the company's sales growth momentum. Further, the analyst believes the company's cost pressures will be larger than investors anticipate and pose risk to consensus estimates. 4. WW (WTW) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan by analyst Christina Brathwaite, saying early in the year channel checks point to a weak start to 2019 for the company. The checks suggest traffic to WW''s website and engagement on its mobile app are down double-digit percentages year-over-year, the analyst added. 5. Hanesbrands (HBI) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank, with analyst Tiffany Kanaga citing a deep dive of the company's international business.

Citi gets more defensive on Brokers & Asset Managers, downgrades five
Citi analyst Citi analyst William Katz is taking a more defense stance on the traditional Brokers & Asset Managers to reflect what he sees as "weak" fundamentals and "still elevated" consensus estimates. The analyst reduced his target multiples across the group and downgraded Affiliated Managers (AMG) and Brightsphere Investment Group (BSIG) to Neutral from Buy as well as Artisan Partners (APAM), Waddell & Reed (WDR) and Franklin Resources (BEN) to Sell from Neutral. Katz calls Och-Ziff Capital (OZM) and LPL Financial (LPLA) his top ideas and also opened a "30 Day Positive Catalyst Watch" for Carlyle Group (CG) and Legg Mason (LM). The analyst recommends pair trades of Overweight AllianceBernstein (AB), underweight Artisan Partners (APAM), and overweight BlackRock (BLK), underweight T. Rowe Price (TROW).

Market Perform
BlackRock price target raised to $425 from $410 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Christopher Harris raised his price target for BlackRock to $425 from $410, while reiterating a Market Perform rating on the shares. The analyst notes that the company reported a Q4 bottom line that fell short of expectations. Yet, BlackRock shares materially outperformed, perhaps in part because of the better-than-expected Q4 average fee rate, he notes. Harris believes this, along with modestly higher than forecast December 31 assets under management, has positive revenue implications.
