11:15 EDTGTATGT Advanced retreats after analyst downgrades stock
Shares of sapphire maker GT Advanced (GTAT) are falling after research firm CLSA downgraded the stock in a note to investors today. The firm cited concerns about increased costs associated with the company's deal with Apple as the main reason for the downgrade. WHAT'S NEW: GT Advanced's costs associated with its deal to supply sapphire to Apple are being impacted by low yields, CLSA analyst Mark Heller wrote after speaking with strategic consulting firm Yole Développement. Lower yields will reduce the amount of sapphire that GT Advanced can produce for Apple, and will negatively affect GT’s profit margins, explained Heller. He believes that GT Advanced's risk/reward ratio is balanced at current levels, and downgraded his rating on the shares to Underperform from Outperform. However, he raised his price target on the shares to $19 from $18. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, GT Advanced fell 2% to $18.
