Amphenol Corporation (NYSE:APH) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a buy rating to a hold rating. According to Zacks, “Amphenol reported all-time high second-quarter 2017 results with healthy year-over-year increases in both earnings and revenues. Amphenol is benefiting from improved end-market demand, new product rollouts, and market share gains. A balanced organic and inorganic growth model, a lean and flexible cost structure, and an agile and entrepreneurial management team augur well for its long-term growth perspectives. The company outperformed the industry year to date. Management also raised its earlier guidance for 2017. However, bulk of the company’s revenues comes from sales to the communications industry, demand for which is subject to rapid technological change. Furthermore, increasing cost of raw materials is also a matter of concern and is likely to be an additional drag on profitability. In addition, unfavorable movement in foreign currency exchange rates often adversely impact sales, thereby affecting its long-term growth to some extent.”

According to Zacks, “Hasbro’s second-quarter 2017 adjusted earnings of $0.53 per share surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 15.2% and surged 29.3% year over year. Meanwhile, revenues of $972.5 million rose 11% year over year but slightly lagged the consensus mark. The company’s revenues projected improvement in three out of its four brand portfolio categories. However, Hasbro’s shares have underperformed the industry year to date. Nonetheless, consistent efforts to establish its presence worldwide through strategic partnerships and rapid expansion in emerging markets bode well. In fact, we believe that this year’s rich content slate, supreme gaming portfolio and diverse new initiatives should further drive growth. Yet, increased competition from alternative modes of entertainment might limit top-line growth, while high costs along with macroeconomic and currency headwinds may hurt profits.”

According to Zacks, “Home Depot’s spectacular past performance has helped it to surpass the industry in the past year. The company has been consistently gaining from its interconnected strategy, focus on Pro customers, and housing market recovery. These factors helped the company post a stellar second-quarter fiscal 2017 performance, which marked its highest ever quarterly sales and earnings. Notably, sales marked its 13th straight beat, while earnings retained its 5-year long trend of positive surprise. Results were driven by solid growth across all regions, both in stores and online. Also, Pro category sales continued to outperform, driven by constant efforts to enrich customers’ experiences. The sturdy first half and expectations of improved home prices encouraged the company to raise its fiscal 2017 view. However, gross margin remained plateaued, and is likely to fall 10 bps in fiscal 2017. Also, competition from online retailers may impact results.”

Spirit Airlines (NASDAQ:SAVE) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a strong sell rating. According to Zacks, “Shares of Spirit Airlines have underperformed its industry in the last three months mainly due to the dispute with its pilots. Consequently, the carrier had to cancel multiple flights resulting in customer dissatisfaction. In fact, this dispute that affected second-quarter 2017 results is expected to be a drag on the company's third-quarter results as well. Meanwhile, Spirit Airlines has issued a lackluster unit revenue guidance for the third quarter. The volatile pricing environment is also a major headwind for the company. The decline in load factor recorded by the company in July remains a major concern. The carrier's efforts to modernize its fleet, however, raise optimism. The company’s efforts to reward stockholders through share buybacks are impressive.”
