Ascena Retail (ASNA) was initiated with a Neutral rating at Goldman Sachs. $35 price target. Company lacks near-term catalysts, Ascena said.

American Axle & Manufacturing (AXL) was upgraded at Keybanc from Hold to Buy. $15 price target. Deceleration in second-half GHT900 production has likely been priced in, Keybanc said.

Cepheid (CPHD) was downgraded at Goldman Sachs from Buy to Neutral. $35 price target. Valuation call, as the stock has gained 40% since February, Goldman said.

eBay (EBAY) was initiated with a Buy rating at Collins Stewart. $42 price target. Sales growth can accelerate, Collins Stewart said.

Informatica (INFA) was initiated with an Outperform rating at BMO Capital. $70 price target. Customer checks suggest that spending can continue over the next several quarters, BMO said.

Intuit (INTU) was downgraded at Morgan Stanley from Overweight to Equal-Weight. Valuation call, as the stock has gained 53% in the past 12 months, Morgan Stanley said.

Marathon Petroleum (MPC) was initiated with an Overweight rating at Barclays. Company is relatively inexpensive compared to other midcontinent refiners, Barclays said. $51 price target.

Netflix (NFLX) was downgraded at Merriman Capital from Buy to Neutral. The company is entering a period of tough year-over-year comps, Merriman said. Target valuation range of $300-330.

Rockwell Automation (ROK) was initiated with a Neutral rating at UBS. $93 price target. Strong growth prospects largely priced in, UBS said.
