Paychex initiated with a Market Perform at Cowen

Cowen analyst Bryan Bergin initiated Paychex with a Market Perform rating and a price target of $86. The analyst is positive on the company's position as a top human capital management provider to small-medium businesses and its healthy visibility, free cash flows, and leading margins. Bergin cautions however that the SMB employment market is "already tight", with the lack of upside catalysts keeping him on the sidelines until a better entry point emerges.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Scott Devitt saying Alphabet revenue growth in last night's Q1 results dropped below 20% for the first time since Q2 of 2015. 2. Bank of America (BAC) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Atlantic Equities. 3. Trade Desk (TTD) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at JMP Securities with analyst Ronald Josey saying he believes shares are currently fairly valued given the company's growth and opportunities in mobile and Connected TV. 4. ADP (ADP) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Bernstein while Paychex (PAYX) was downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform. 5. Trex Company (TREX) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at B. Riley FBR with analyst Alex Rygiel citing near-term profit margin pressures. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Underperform
Paychex downgraded to Underperform on valuation at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill analyst Jason Kupferberg downgraded Paychex to Underperform from Neutral, with an $82 price target, as he sees valuation ahead of fundamentals. The analyst notes that the shares have outperformed significantly year to date and trade at a premium to historical levels. Further, Kupferberg sees the company's Q4 results/2020 guidance as in-line to slightly below consensus expectations. The stock has benefited from investor rotation related to the falling 10-year Treasury yield, he contends, adding that on the basis of underlying fundamentals, shares are "overvalued."

Underweight
Paychex cut to Underweight at Morgan Stanley on SMID business weakening
Morgan Stanley analyst Steven Wald downgraded Paychex (PAYX) to Underweight from Equal Weight and lowered his price target for the shares to $74 from $77 as he assumed lead coverage of the stock and ADP (ADP). Small-to-mid-sized business employment is weakening and Paychex's revenue is 94% correlated to small business employment, explained Wald. Additionally, Paychex shares remain expensive compared to its Payments peers based on his EPS, revenue and margin estimates, the analyst said. Wald maintained an Equal Weight rating on ADP upon assuming coverage, setting a $174 price target on the stock, up from the firm's prior $150 target. At current levels, the market is sufficiently balancing ADP's relatively defensive market position from serving a wider array of clients than Paychex against the cyclical risks to growth if employment conditions broadly worsen, said Wald.
