Argus downgraded PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG) from Buy to Hold.

The downgrade reflects management’s reduced 3Q guidance in early October and subsequent report of a year-over-year decline in third-quarter earnings. Management expects slower volume growth in the near term, reflecting the impact of weaker economic conditions, especially in Europe.

The firm is lowering 2016 EPS estimate to $5.93 from $6.25 . They are also lowering 2017 EPS estimate to $6.43 from $6.93.
