Shares of Rambus (Nasdaq: RMBS) are down about 2 percent ahead of the bell Monday as J.P. Morgan cut its rating on the stock from Overweight to Neutal, keeping a $6.50 price target.

Following a 45 percent climb in Rambus stock since May 18th, JPMorgan said it didn't see a clear catalyst for the movement. The downgrade comes as JPMorgan is becoming a little more cautious on Rambus moving forward.

JPMorgan has low expectations for a favorable outcome in a pending International Trade Commission (ITC) antitrust case and well as pending patent litigation.

Despite the downgrade, JPMorgan sees a support level at $4.25, a 30 percent discount to last Friday's close at $6.09.
