Deutsche Bank analyst Nicole DeBlase resumed coverage of United Rentals with a Hold rating and $161 price target.

At this point in the cycle, Deblase does not see "significant alpha generation opportunity" through outright Sell ratings within this group.

Catch up on today's…

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Planet Fitness (PLNT) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Joseph Altobello saying with the shares now approaching $80, which he attributes mainly to optimism regarding a broad based economic recovery as areas of the U.S. reopen, he believes the stock's valuation has become "stretched." 2. United Rentals (URI) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs. 3. Goldman Sachs (GS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Matthew O'Connor saying the good news for Goldman Sachs seems to be baked in with the stock outperforming, and the potential sell-off in equities could weigh on several of Goldman's businesses like trading, investment banking and asset management. 4. Qudian (QD) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Citi. 5. Inter Parfums (IPAR) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Alan Erskine saying the population lockdowns are having a server impact on Inter Parfums' business.

Goldman Sachs analyst…

Goldman Sachs analyst Jerry Revich removed United Rentals (URI) from the firm's Americas Conviction List but keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a price target of $165, up from $154. The analyst sees more attractive risk/rewards across other parts of the Industrials and Materials space, including Oshkosh (OSK). However, Revich cites improved visibility on a construction equipment utilization recovery for the target raise.

UBS analyst Steven Fisher…

UBS analyst Steven Fisher upgraded United Rentals to Buy from Neutral with an unchanged $136 price target. The analyst says the company's rental metrics are set for positive inflection relative to March-April levels as construction activity resumes in several cities. Fisher ads that following the likely trough in utilization rate during the first half of Q2, May-June should see the rate go higher. The analyst further notes that industry supply/demand should be more balanced given the "aggressive" capex cuts by United Rentals and its peers.
