Here is your Pro Recap of the biggest analyst cuts you may have missed since yesterday: downgrades at Plug Power, Wolverine Worldwide, Cano Health, and Stanley Black & Decker.
Plug Power downgraded following Q2 profit miss
Shares plunged more than 15% yesterday after the company reported weaker-than-expected profit numbers for Q2.
According to Roth/MKM, the challenges with gross margin in Q2 are not poised for quick resolution, indicating significantly higher cash requirements for plant commissioning.
"Lowering estimates materially, and primarily on gross margins. Cash burn of over ($1.6bn) in the past year makes revenue progress less impressive, and $1bn unrestricted cash suggests additional financing could be needed soon. Mgmt is pursuing $1bn DOE project loans, which could come at year-end, but won't offset much operating burn."
Wolverine Worldwide gets three downgrades following the guidance cut
Wolverine World Wide (NYSE: WWW ) received three downgrades following the company’s Q2 report . Shares plunged more than 25% yesterday after the U.S. footwear maker lowered its full-year revenue and margin forecast, citing the impact of a slowdown in wholesale demand.
Exane BNP Paribas downgraded the company to Neutral from Outperform and cut its price target to $9.00 from $22.00. Williams Trading downgraded to Hold from Buy and cut its price target to $12.00 from $23.00.
Meanwhile, Seaport Global Securities downgraded the stock to Neutral from Buy, noting they lost confidence in their prior thesis of the company getting to a 12% operating margin.
2 more downgrades
