As previously reported,…

As previously reported, Guggenheim analyst Nandan Amladi downgraded Upwork (UPWK) to Neutral from Buy with a price target of $11, down from $25. Growth rates slowed down during the first half of 2019 and he is concerned that the pursuit of larger enterprise deals may mean longer sales cycles, posing a potential headwind to 2020 revenue growth at a time when the company's CEO change could complicate things further, Amladi tells investors. In his broader note about the Human Capital Management space and Upwork's peers, Amladi said that he believes the healthy employment backdrop and an accommodative Fed both bode well for HCM stocks. He raised his price target on ADP (ADP) shares to $200 from $185, raised his price target on Ceridian (CDAY) to $85 from $60, upped his Cornerstone OnDemand (CSOD) target to $75 from $70, increased his Paycom (PAYC) target to $300 from $225, raised his Paylocity (PCTY) target to $150 from $115 and increased his Workday (WDAY) to $240 from $235 while lowering his price target for Benefitfocus (BNFT) to $40 from $50.

Catch up on today's…

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ford (F) downgraded to Underperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst Chris McNally saying that in 2020, the "weak will likely get weaker" in 2020 and the strong OEMs/suppliers may start to dominate. 2. Upwork (UPWK) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Hao Yan citing the stock coming under pressure since the company's Q3 results amid a weaker growth outlook and believes that a Neutral rating with a "high risk" classification is warranted because of the sector re-rating, recent CEO departure, regulatory overhand, and decelerating Gross Services Volume. 3. Signet Jewelers (SIG) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Wells Fargo with analyst Ike Boruchow saying the retail group had a "very challenging" 2019 due to a confluence of factors including tariff concerns and tough compares, adding that Signet's core business continues to struggle, with credit remaining an overhang. 4. Intercept (ICPT) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Joel Beatty saying the 95% run-up in the stock since September and contends that its NASH launch has been "appropriately priced in." 5. Hanesbrands (HBI) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Wells Fargo with analyst Ike Boruchow saying the retail group had a "very challenging" 2019 due to a confluence of factors including tariff concerns and tough compares, and says core weakness is persisting at Hanesbrands, with Champion decelerating.
