Jefferies downgraded Parametric Technology (NASDAQ: PMTC) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $21.00 (from $25.00).

The firm comments, "We downgrade PMTC as our most recent field work points to further deterioration of demand. Many aspects of our Buy thesis (including op margin expansion) remain an opportunity, but weaker demand means it will be slower to realize. The F2Q12 miss reset expectations, but we now expect organic growth to remain lower for longer."

FY12 EPS goes from $1.43 to $1.42 and FY13 goes from $1.61 to $1.60.
