Goldman Sachs downgraded Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) to Sell with a price target lowered from $52 to $45.

Analyst, Noah Poponak, said, "Lowest FCF yield and the consensus long in large-cap Defense: We think RTN is the consensus long amongst the primes due to international and intel exposures, but its organic growth, orders, margin resiliency, and cash generation have all been very similar to peers."

"...we see risk that some of the expected back-end loaded 2012 order flow investors are looking for slips in to 2013. We also have concern that RTN’s orders and backlog are shifting towards its lower margin segments, which could drive total company margin pressure going forward."
