Jefferies downgraded Heckmann Corporation (NYSE: HEK) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $4.50 (from $5.50).

The firm comments, "Following a weak 4Q12, activity in shales served by HEK looks sluggish into 1H13 and water services pricing is challenged. We are lowering our 2013 estimate and adopting a more conservative valuation posture."

The firm cut Q1 EPS from ($0.02) to ($0.03), FY13 from ($0.15) to ($0.16) and FY14 from $0.18 to $0.09.
