J.B. Hunt Transport Services

The transportation company was downgraded by Jefferies analysts on Jan. 17 to a hold from a buy.

"JBHT shares are up 33% from the market's October 3 lows, and offer less than 15% to our downwardly-revised price target," Jefferies analysts wrote in a report. "We believe that our October 11 call -- that U.S. freight flows had started to strengthen and that investors should increase risk exposure to our stocks -- has now become the consensus view."

Shares of J.B. Hunt hit a 52-week high on Thursday of $49.99. The stock's 52-week low of $34.42 was set on Sept. 22.

TheStreet Ratings gives J.B. Hunt an A+ grade with a $58.43 price target. The stock has risen 10.27% year to date.


Ansys creates engineering simulation software.

Goldman Sachs initiated coverage of Ansys on Nov. 16 with a neutral rating.

"While the ANSYS business model offers attractive defensive characteristics in the current environment, we initiate with a Neutral rating given our view of limited top-line catalysts combined with a status quo operating margin outlook," Goldman Sachs analysts wrote in a report.

The company reports fourth-quarter earnings on Feb. 23.

Shares of Ansys hit a 52-week high of $62.45 on Thursday. The stock's 52-week low was set on Aug. 9.

Ansys gets a A grade from TheStreet Ratings with a $70.52 price target. The stock has risen 7.25% year to date.
