Standpoint Research downgraded RPC Inc. (NYSE: RES) from Buy to Hold.

Analyst, Ronnie Moas, said, "RPC Inc. shares have bounced 20% in the last three weeks and we think the shares may be a bit over-extended in the near-term with quite a bit of speculation built in. Our Feb-15 recommendation is now up 17.7% in a flat market. Quite a few things need to go right in order for RES to go higher from here and towards the split adjusted $14 target price we set for 2014-2015, namely a rebound in the Natural Gas price past $3.50...Our price target for 2014-2015 remains $14 but given the current situation and recent share price move, we can no longer leave our highest recommendation attached to this name."
