Seaport Global Securities downgraded Regal Beloit (NYSE: RBC) from Accumulate to Neutral with a price target of $64.00 (from $68.00).

Analyst Walt Liptak commented, "We recently caught up with RBC management. Overall, we believe that the 2016 outlook remains uncertain due to negative sector exposure, especially O&G, both direct and indirect. We believe that the general industrial sector remains weak, and could be a negative headwind for short-term earnings. As a result, we are lowering our rating to Neutral from Accumulate and lowering our price target to $64 from $68. We are lowering our 2016 and 2017 EPS estimates as a result of persistently weak industrial markets. Our new 2016 and 2017 EPS estimates are $4.35 (from $4.37 previously) and $4.70 (from $4.71), respectively. RBC's valuation is below our SGS Electrical Products Group. Our new $64 price target equates to a 2017E P/E of 13.6x, which is in line with the comparable group average multiple."
