UBS hit Medtronic PLC (NYSE:MDT) with a downgrade to "sell" from "buy," with a steep price-target cut to $79 from $127. The firm stated that "despite the company's ongoing transformation, the firm lacks conviction that it can return to sustainable, mid-single digit top-line growth" and added that is has been losing share in some of its highest growth businesses such as diabetes. 

At last glance, MDT was down 0.7% at $78.79. Long-term pressure at the descending 200-day moving average helped push the shares lower throughout the month of February. Year-to-date, the equity is up 1.7%. 

Of the 30 analysts in coverage, 18 carry a "hold" or worse rating, with 12 a "buy" or better. The 12-month consensus price target of $89 is a 12.6% premium to current levels. 




How to collect 1 dividend check every day for LIFE

All you do is buy and hold and you're set. There's no set up required either.
