  • Jefferies Downgrades Ashland; Cuts Outlook (ASH)

    Jefferies reported on Thursday that it has cut its rating on chemical company Ashland Inc. (ASH) . The firm has downgraded ASH from "Buy" to "Hold," and has lowered the company's price target from $104 to $97. This price target suggests a 9% upside from the stock's current price of $88.47. Analyst Laurence Alexander commented: "Investor confidence in the asset shuffling thesis may not withstand 2-3 more rounds of downward revisions to EPS and FCF forecasts for 2014E-2016E." "Pension headwinds, incentive comp, Valvoline marketing expenses, sluggish end markets: in our view, it all adds up, and makes further multiple expansion more difficult." Looking ahead, the firm has reduced estimates for the fourth quarter from $1.70 to $1.59 per share. For FY2013, earnings estimates have been lowered from $6.25 to $6.15 per share. FY2014 estimates have been cut from $7.45 to $6.75 per share. Ashland shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Thursday. The stock is up 10% YTD
