06:45 EDTSQualcomm downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at FBR Capital
FBR Capital downgraded Qualcomm (QCOM) to Market Perform, removed the stock from its Top Picks list and dropped its price target for shares to $72 from $80. FBR said the moves were prompted by a posting on AT&T's (T) website which said the carrier’s version of the GS6 smarphone is powered by the Samsung Exynos 7420 processor with a Shannon 333 modem as opposed to Qualcomm's Snapdragon platform. FBR still expects the Verizon (VZ) and Sprint (S) GS6 versions to sport Qualcomm modems, but it believes the change at AT&T signals Samsung’s "clear intent to utilize proprietary baseband whenever and wherever possible." Shares of chip maker Qualcomm closed Thursday down $1.46 to $67.97.
06:20 EDTAAPLGarmin downgraded to Sell from Buy at Citigroup
Citigroup analyst Jeremy David downgraded Garmin two notches to Sell from Buy saying competitive pressures are likely to stall the growth of the company's GPS fitness watch business. He also thinks revenue trends in Garmin's Outdoor segment could disappoint as the year progresses. David expects Garmin to miss consensus earnings and revenue expectations in Q1 and views the Apple (AAPL) Watch launch as another potential negative catalyst for shares. He cut his price target for the stock to $42 from $68. Shares of the navigation and information device maker closed Thursday down 58c to $46.49 after Goldman Sachs downgraded the stock Neutral from Buy.
