Aeropostale (ARO - Get Report) downgraded at Citigroup from hold to sell, with a $24 price target. Inventory levels are building, especially women's, which could hurt near-term margins.

Lincare (LNCR) downgraded at Deutsche from hold to sell, with a $24 price target. Company facing increased competition, and Medicare reimbursement rates may be reset lower.

Medco Health Solutions (MHS) upgraded at Goldman to buy from neutral based on valuation. Believes shares are attractive following 23% decline from early January highs. Maintained $59 target price.
