Deutsche Bank downgraded Ubiquiti Networks (NASDAQ: UBNT) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $12.00 (from $30.00).

"Overall, we were disappointed by the guide and feel there is long-term risk surrounding the counterfeiting issues with the AirMax platform. Unfortunately Ubiquiti’s guide did nothing to drown out the noise around the name," said analyst Brian Modoff.

"Counterfeit goods were blamed for the miss, but one has to wonder whether the market for AirMax is becoming saturated. This could be a possibility, but given the geographic growth profiles and the anemic growth seen in Latam, we do believe the main problem stems from counterfeiting. The challenge going forward will be protecting the AirMax product segment," he added.
