Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. AB InBev (BUD) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Celine Pannuti saying despite a "more benign" input cost environment, 2020 is shaping up to remain challenging for the company, leading to pressure on both gross margin and EBITDA. 2. Bloom Energy (BE) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Raymond James with analyst Pavel Molchanov citing valuation. 3. AMD (AMD) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Wells Fargo with analyst Aaron Rakers saying he is positive on AMD's competitive positioning and share gain story. However, at current levels, and based on his new sum-of-the-parts analysis, he believes the shares approaching levels that present a more balanced risk/reward. 4. Workday (WDAY) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Societe Generale. 5. CenturyLink (CTL) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA with analyst David Barden saying that with the exception of encouraging positive momentum in the company's Enterprise and IGAM segments, its business remains structurally challenged, and he expects the stock to trade range-bound with a downward bias.

Citi analyst Simon Hales upgraded AB InBev to Buy from Neutral with a EUR 62 price target. "For the first time in a while it is tough to construct a bear-case on" the company, Hales tells investors in a research note. The consistency of AB InBev's earnings delivery has improved significantly, increasing investor confidence in both execution capabilities and balance sheet deleverage, says the analyst. He says that with its debt-to-equity transition likely to take place over the next 12-months, the stock's risks are skewing to the upside.
