Wells Fargo downgraded Frontline Ltd. (NYSE: FRO) from Outperform to Market Perform.

Wells analyst says, "We are downgrading shares of FRO on the back of prolonged tanker weakness and management's inclination to position FRO for a multi-year tanker trough. While we continue to believe we are trending along the bottom of the tanker market with the potential for a 2012 recovery, we believe better entry points into FRO may emerge, as the company looks to shed capacity and take a more defensive stance. We believe names such as Teekay (NYSE: TK) and Overseas Shipholding (NYSE: OSG), which are trading in closer proximity to their respective NAVs, represent better value at this point in the cycle."
