Downgrades

On Monday, Rio Tinto was downgraded to Neutral from Overweight by JPMorgan analyst Lyndon Fagan. The analyst set a price target of 4,950p, down from 6,000p. Fagan suggests using the recent ore price rise and sentiment to decrease long exposure to stocks in the sector. He added that weaker fixed-asset investment in China is a possible cyclical and structural headwind next year.

Morgan Stanley's Charles Webb downgraded Synthomer to Underweight from Overweight, setting a price target of 400p, down from 568p. The analyst revealed several reasons for the double downgrade, including a deterioration in the supply outlook, volume risks, rising leverage, faster than expected normalisation in earnings, and a management transition.

Analyst Gavin Jago at Barclays double downgraded Persimmon to Underweight from Overweight, setting a 2,500p price target. The analyst explained there is a risk of a housing affordability squeeze in the United Kingdom due to factors such as rising interest rates, cost of living, and house prices. In addition, Jago explained there are “particular demand risks for first-time buyers, where rising interest rates have a more pronounced impact on mortgage costs.”
