Atlantica Yield PLC (NASDAQ:ABY) was downgraded by analysts at BidaskClub from a hold rating to a sell rating.

AECOM (NYSE:ACM) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a strong sell rating. According to Zacks, “AECOM’s third-quarter fiscal 2017 adjusted earnings per share came in at 76 cents, in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate but down 3.7% from the year-ago figure of 81 cents. Year to date, AECOM’s shares have recorded a negative return, steeper than the industry’s average. Volatility in the oil and gas market, with declining prices and contracting spending levels, has been restraining the company’s projects and orders. Moreover, cyclical demand of the company’s services and currency fluctuations are likely to thwart growth, going forward. Also, the Budget Control Act is expected to delay few major projects, thus adding to the company’s woes. However, on the positive side, increase in the proportion of higher margin work is benefitting AECOM’s Construction Services segment and Revenue in Management Services segments. Also, the Shimmick buyout is expected to supplement core revenue growth.”

Dean Foods (NYSE:DF) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a strong sell rating. According to Zacks, “Dean Foods’ shares have underperformed the sector in the last six months, mainly due to its unimpressive earnings history. The company reported a dismal second-quarter 2017, wherein both the top and bottom lines lagged estimates and earnings declined year over year. This marked the company’s third straight quarter of negative earnings surprise. Results were hampered by a tough retail scenario, which has been witnessing fast-evolving trends. Further, volumes remained under pressure due to macro factors and stiff competition. Moreover, management anticipates these obstacles to linger throughout 2017, as is reflected by its curtailed earnings projection for the year. However, Dean Foods remains on track to speed up its commercial and cost productivity efforts, to enhance volumes and mix. The company announced plans to expand cost productivity program, which is likely to aid in achieving additional savings of $40–$50 million annually.”

S&P Global (NYSE:SPGI) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “S&P Global reported solid second-quarter 2017 results with healthy year-over-year increase in adjusted earnings and revenues. S&P Global’s strategic portfolio restructuring and focus on core business will continue to drive growth, going forward. This apart, strategic acquisitions and positive industry trends like surge of new high-yield bonds and leveraged loans, fuelled by tight interest-rate spreads, augur well for long-term growth. The company outperformed the industry year to date. Management further increased its guidance on favorable growth dynamics. However, its performance is likely to be hurt by lower volume of debt securities issued in the capital markets. Financial distress could either dent investor’s demand for debt securities or make issuers reluctant to issue such securities. Additionally, increase in interest rates or credit spreads may adversely affect the general level of debt issuance.”

ViaSat (NASDAQ:VSAT) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “ViaSat posted dismal results for first-quarter fiscal 2018, as non-GAAP earnings declining 82.6% year over year, hurt by escalating research and development costs, and costs related to the ViaSat-2 service launch activities. Still, the company posted record first-quarter revenues, driven by terrific growth in government business and somewhat offset by contraction in Commercial Networks revenues. The company recently launched ViaSat-2 satellite, which holds tremendous potential over the long run. However, seasonality in satellite service segment, strong competition and soaring research and development expenses continue to be headwinds for the company. However, persistent weakness in the Commercial Networks segment, due to soft sales of large integrated antenna systems programs, is proving to be a drag on the company’s financials. ViaSat shares have underperformed the industry’s average return as well, over the past year.”
