Standpoint Research downgraded Baxter International (NYSE: BAX) from Buy to Hold.

Analyst, Ronnie Moas, said, "Baxter is a name I like to trade especially when I am looking to hedge high beta recommendations...you could have bought this at $50 and sold at $60 five times in the last five years. Sometimes it pays to keep things simple and not over-analyze...BAX shares were oversold in late May and are now fairly valued at 13X trailing twelve months earnings. BAX reported this morning and are trading +1.2% (as of 10:30am). I am concerned with the risk/reward in the near term with this market so BAX may remain a good hedge for a bit longer."
