Deutsche Bank downgraded Mednax (NYSE: MD) from Buy to Hold, price target lowered from $81 to $73.

Deutsche analyst said, "Our Upgrade last Oct was predicated on growth in the core business stabilizing in the 3% to 3.5% range, and much greater potential earnings upside / multiple expansion from an accelerating M&A trend. We acknowledge that it is still early in MD's anesthesia M&A trajectory. Yet, we fear the co's slower pace of deals, coupled with a change in the co's margin profile due to the mix of acquired businesses, will lead to less multiple expansion than originally thought."
