On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Square (SQ) downgraded to Neutral from Positive at Susquehanna analyst James Friedman citing valuation and the lack of a CFO at the company. 2. Landstar System (LSTR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs and to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc. 3. Dean Foods (DF) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Akshay Jagdale saying he believes the company's cost savings opportunity is significant enough to more than offset secular headwinds. 4. Ctrip (CTRP) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse, to Neutral from Buy at Citi, to Underperform from Outperform at CLSA, and to Hold from Buy at China Renaissance. 5. CDK Global (CDK) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Timothy Willi saying he believes that CDK faces a variety of headwinds during FY19 that will likely limit upside in the shares despite the discounted valuation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Avoid the 'temptation' to buy Dean Foods on takeout thesis, says JPMorgan
In a post-earnings research note titled "In This Case, It's Okay to Cry over Spilt Milk," JPMorgan analyst Ken Goldman says Dean Foods announced Q4 earnings below consensus, the suspension of its dividend, the suspension of guidance, and a strategic review. The strategic review apparently could include "almost anything under the sun," with management tossing out a variety of options, including a sale, Goldman writes. The analyst recommends "avoiding the temptation" to buy Dean on the thesis it can get taken out for premium. If Dean does happen to find a buyer, which is unlikely, the stock will probably be purchased at a discount to the current price, contends Goldman. He points out that Dean is a "levered company with a fast-deteriorating business and numerous out-of-date production facilities." The analyst believes management throwing out sale as an option feels "like a shot in the dark." Goldman recommends shorting any potential strength today in the shares and keeps an Underweight rating on Dean Foods. The stock in premarket trading is down 13% to $3.97.

Stifel sees Dean Foods falling after Q4 report despite strategic review
After Dean Foods reported a Q4 loss of (50c), pulled its financial guidance and suspended its dividend, Stifel analyst Christopher Growe said in a flash note that he expects the shares to trade down despite the announcement last night that the company is exploring all options for its business. Ahead of the company's earnings call, Growe maintained a Hold rating and $5 price target on Dean Foods shares, which are down 65c, or 14%, to $3.90 in pre-market trading.
