Analysts are weighing in on Chinese internet stock Baidu Inc (ADR) (NASDAQ:BIDU), biotech Revance Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ:RVNC), and oil-and-gas-stock Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK). Here's a quick roundup of today's bearish brokerage notes on BIDU, RVNC, and CHK.

  • RVNC is down 27% at $13.39 -- and just hit a record low of $13.21-- after announcing it would halt development on its REALISE 1 topical gel, intended to treat 'crow's feet,' after the treatment missed its Phase 3 trial goals. Following this announcement, Brean downgraded Revance Therapeutics Inc to "hold" from "buy," Suntrust Robinson more than halved the stock's price target to $22 from $46, and William Blair issued a price-target cut to $41 from $50. RVNC has lost nearly 61% of its value since the beginning of the year, and this latest drop puts the stock below former support in the $15-$16 region. There are plenty of options bulls likely kicking rocks, with RVNC's 50-day call/put volume ratio at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) of 15.4 sitting higher than 90% of all other readings from the past year.
