Jefferies downgraded Level 3 Communications (NYSE: LVLT) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $55.00 (from $58.00) after the company agreed to be acquired.

"While the deal spread of near 15% (excl. CTL dividend) is sizable, we do not anticipate any alternate bidder and remain concerned about CTL's fundamentals, which could reduce the stock portion of the deal," analyst Scott Goldman said.
