Goldman Sachs today maintained a Sell rating on DreamWorks Animation (NASDAQ: DWA) and trimmed its price target to $16.00 (from $17.00).

"DWA reduced its 2013 theatrical slate to 2 films from 3 in response to competition from 4 quadrant (i.e., mass appeal) releases. Even with the pending reduction to film costs, we believe the profitability of DWA films hinges on hitting all 4 quadrants. In contrast, the profitability of lower cost animated films at rival studios can be driven by the attendance of family audiences," said analyst Drew Borst.
