Rivian downgraded ahead of Q2

Rivian Automotive (NASDAQ: RIVN ) shares fell more than 1% yesterday and are currently down 4% in premarket today after Cantor Fitzgerald downgraded the company to a Neutral from Overweight with a price target of $29.00 (from $27.00) on recent outperformance in the share price and on increased competition from Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA ), General Motors (NYSE: GM ), and Ford Motor (NYSE: F ) in the electric vehicle market.

The company is set to report its Q2/23 earnings on Aug 8. Street estimates stand at ($1.43) for EPS and $1 billion for revenues.

ZoomInfo’s rating cut at two firms following Q2 miss

ZoomInfo Technologies (NASDAQ: ZI ) was downgraded by two Wall Street firms after the company reported worse-than-expected Q2 revenue and guidance, which resulted in a share price drop of nearly 27% yesterday.

Deutsche Bank downgraded the company to Hold from Buy and cut its price target to $20.00 from $31.00.

While there is a sense that the company may be nearing a bottom and the lowered 2023 guidance accounts for further deterioration, the bank noted that concerns remain about management's lack of visibility and the stock's multiple, which carries downside risk.

Wolfe Research downgraded the company to Peerperform from Outperform.

After multiple cuts to guidance, and macro headwinds not dissipating for the foreseeable (at least three more quarters) future, we believe shares stay range-bound for as investors digest a HSD/LDD top line growth profile with contracting FCF margins that we don't see returning to 40% until after 2025.

Crestwood Equity received two downgrades

Crestwood Equity Partners (NYSE: CEQP ) received two downgrades following the company’s reported Q2 results, highlighted by revenue and adjusted EBITDA miss. As a result, shares dropped more than 5% yesterday.

JPMorgan downgraded the company to Underweight from Neutral and cut its price target to $28.00 from $30.00.

Given the limited total return potential to our new PT and recent quarterly EBITDA misses, we see CEQP in the 'show me camp' for a period of time.

Meanwhile, RBC Capital downgraded the stock to Sector Perform from Outperform and cut its price target to $27.00 from $29.00.

Electronic Arts downgraded to Neutral

UBS downgraded Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA ) to Neutral from Buy with a price target of $142.00 (from $140.00) following Q1 results, as reported in real time on InvestingPro. As a result, shares dropped more than 4% premarket today.
