Jefferies downgraded Skullcandy (NASDAQ: SKUL) from Buy to Underperform and slashes its price target from $17 to $6 citing a lack of pricing power and increasing competition.

"The in-ear headphones which comprise over 60% of SKUL's revenues are under significant pressure from a variety of competitors, and we believe this trend will likely continue in coming quarters," the analyst comments. "And though SKUL is diversifying into more on-ear and over-ear headphones, these growth categories inherently carry lower margins."
