Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Devon Energy (DVN) reinstated with a Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Brian Singer saying the stock's year-to-date outperformance relative to peers is "overdone" as the remaining sum-of-the-parts valuation for the shares is "too rich" following the sale of its Canadian business. 2.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. RealReal (REAL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Aaron Kessler saying he expects continued positive near-term fundamental trends, including strong gross merchandise volume growth and margin improvement. 2. Sprouts Farmers Market (SFM) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Bernstein with analyst Brandon Fletcher saying the recent drop in Sprouts shares seems to rely too heavily on the read-through from Lucky's Market's bankruptcy. 3. Chewy (CHWY) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Mark Mahaney saying he sees FY20 as a profitability inflection year for the company and believes that the stock offers "highly favorable" risk-reward given its "strong sustainable fundamentals," including 25% annual revenue growth and "materially" expanding margins. 4. WW (WW) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at DA Davidson with analyst Linda Bolton Weiser saying her proprietary data suggests that this is a good time to buy shares and consensus calling for 5% sales growth in 2020 appears to be modest with her estimated subscriber growth potential of at least 10%. 5. ShockWave Medical (SWAV) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA with analyst Bob Hopkins citing the strong start to the company's below-the-knee launch.

Bernstein analyst Brandon Fletcher upgraded Sprouts Farmers Market to Outperform from Market Perform with an unchanged price target of $22. The recent drop in Sprouts shares seems to rely too heavily on the read-through from Lucky's Market's bankruptcy, Fletcher tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, believes the market underestimates the value of the company's turnaround plans under new management and misses a potential return to moderate store growth. He sees see "real value at this discount price."
