CVS Health (CVS) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Credit Suisse with analyst A.J. Rice saying the stock faces a transitional year as it tries to drive seismic changes in healthcare. 4. Intel (INTC) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst Jim Kelleher citing the company's Q1 earnings miss and reduced FY19 outlook that reflected the company's Data Center Group weakness, which he calls "the linchpin of growth." 5. 3M (MMM) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Gordon Haskett with analyst John Inch downgraded saying his concerns extend beyond the company's Q1 earnings miss and steep guidance reduction.
