DOWNGRADE

Hold
iRobot downgraded to Hold at Needham on valuation
As previously reported, Needham analyst James Ricchiuti downgraded iRobot to Hold from Buy, saying the market appears to be pricing in expectations of "meaningful upside" to the company's 2019 guidance after the run-up in its stock price this year. The analyst notes that while the stock is still not at "peak valuations", it trades "well above" its 5-year average across a variety of valuation metrics. After rising nearly 56% in the last 3 months, Ricchiuti believes that iRobot shares "could take a breather", with the good news likely "priced in at current levels".

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. ImmunoGen (IMGN) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jessica Fye saying the failure of Forward I is a "meaningful setback" for the mirvetuximab development program. 2. Vertex (VRTX) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at SVB Leerink with analyst Geoffrey Porges citing the slower ramp of the company's cystic fibrosis products in Europe, the already high expectations priced into the stock and the limited near-term opportunities and catalysts from the company's pipeline. 3. iRobot (IRBT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Needham with analyst James Ricchiuti stating the market appears to be pricing in expectations of "meaningful upside" to the company's 2019 guidance after the run-up in its stock price this year. 4. Yum! Brands (YUM) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst John Ivankoe saying the 9% year-to-date run in shares leaves little upside to estimates. 5. Boeing (BA) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst John Eade stating that he believes company management has not been particularly proactive in its response to two fatal crashes involving the 737 Max jet. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

iRobot Q1 channel checks inline with expectations, says Piper Jaffray
Channel checks in Q1 indicate demand for iRobot's vacuums were inline with expectations and that retailers' in-stock levels have generally recovered following the "robust" holiday season, Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen tells investors in a research note. The i7 and i7 have "much healthier" in-stock levels following being sold out during the end of 2018, and sales continue to be "strong," adds the analyst. He continues to believe iRobot's competitive fears are easing with no new threat or meaningful share loss to emerging competitors. Jensen, however, reiterates a Neutral rating on iRobot with a $96 price target. He believes the current valuation properly reflects his enthusiasm for iRobot and the robotic vacuum cleaner market.

iRobot price target raised to $100 from $88 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Mark Strouse raised his price target for iRobot to $100 from $88 and keeps a Neutral rating on the shares ahead of the company's "seasonally slow" Q1 results. The analyst expects "continued strong results," though he expects iRobot to keep its revenue guidance unchanged. Management's tone is likely to remain optimistic, particularly regarding the pending launch of the lawnmower product, Terra, and regarding additional product launches later in 2019, Strouse tells investors in a research note. While his price target implies downside, the analyst does not view iRobot as a short as he expects investor optimism regarding new products to "buoy the stock near term."
