Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Morgan Stanley (MS) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Keith Horowitz saying Morgan Stanley reported "strong" Q1 results but the shares are fairly valued. 2. Snap (SNAP) downgraded to Negative from Mixed at Vertical Group and to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush. 3. Rite Aid (RAD) downgraded with a Sell from Neutral at Guggenheim while Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) was downgraded with a Neutral from Buy. 4. CF Industries (CF) downgraded to Underperform from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Steve Byrne saying he has spoken with 10 key channel contacts in the Cornbelt and several commented that never in their 30-plus year careers have they seen fertilizer applications this far behind, mainly due to the weather. 5. FMC Corporation (FMC) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital with analyst Arun Viswanathan citing the "uncertainty of Rynaxypyr and Cyazypyr patent expiration" as well as the reduced multiple from the recent lithium separation. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Smile Direct, CVS news 'good' for Align Technology, says Baird
Smile Direct Club announced an expanded agreement with CVS (CVS) and an agreement with Aetna Dental, which Baird analyst Jeff Johnson could likely drive additional clear aligner awareness, something that should be good for the industry, and, specifically Align Technology (ALGN), where early efforts with Walgreens (WBA) "seem to be developing" and where traction remains strong through DSOs. The analyst maintains an Outperform rating and $336 price target on Align Technology shares.

Desjardins initiates HEXO Corp, Canopy Growth, Aurora Cannabis with a Buy
Desjardins analyst John Chu initiated HEXO Corp (HEXO), Canopy Growth (CGC), and Aurora Cannabis (ACB) with a Buy rating and respective price targets of C$14, C$74, and C$16.50 as part of a broad research note, saying the "hype" around legalization of adult-use cannabis in Canada remains strong in spite of "underwhelming" early months of sales. The analyst attributes the challenges to ramp-up, logistical and distribution issues, but expects investors to consider the opportunity as a "global" one. Chu believes that "major" consumer packaged goods companies like Constellation (STZ), InBev (BUD), and Altria (MO), as well as retailers like Walgreens (WBA), CVS (CVS), and Rite Aid (RAD) should "help push cannabis and hemp into the mainstream."

Walgreens could target Amerisource, LabCorp if it seeks M&A, says Raymond James
Raymond James analyst John Ransom said he thinks that "the temptation" for Walgreens (WBA) to do "something" in terms of M&A will grow over time and the "something" it may consider could include either acquiring AmerisourceBergen (ABC) or LabCorp (LH). His analysis points to LabCorp being a less complicated, "but much less accretive," deal, said Ransom. Given Walgreens' existing ownership of about a 26% stake in AmerisourceBergen, he estimates 16% accretion from buying the company for $95 per share in cash if he assumes $500M of synergies and $2B of opioid fines financed with debt, the analyst tells investors. Though such a deal would make financial sense, he does not think investors would "be overly excited about the strategic upside," Ransom tells investors. While he argues that LabCorp "offers more strategic upside," such a hypothetical deal also has less financial benefit, according to Ransom.
