MKM Partners downgraded Gardner Denver Corp. (NYSE: GDI) from Buy to Neutral. PT cut from $62 to $54.

Analyst, Joshua Pokrzywinski, said, "We are not wholly negative on GDI’s execution potential, but believe that even on that basis, earnings are likely to decline next year as energy retrenches. We expect investors to place a discount relative to peers while they gauge continuity during the management transition period."

Pokrzywinski mentioned a draconian valuation, citing trough multiples on trough earnings. Shares look attractive on a free cash flow basis, but expect them range-bound until clarity of new leadership.
