JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster downgraded Cree (NASDAQ: CREE) from Neutral to Underweight with a price target of $40.00 (from $43.00).

The analyst comments "We are downgrading CREE to Underweight on valuation and lack of near-term catalysts, underscored by lackluster F2Q guidance. For the next few quarters CREE is locked into a technically challenging and capital-intensive manufacturing expansion that potentially precedes by several quarters the anticipated ramp in SIC demand from the Chinese and European EV markets. Gross margins, which have taken an unanticipated dip, could remain depressed and cash-flow will remain negative through CY2020, we believe."
