Roku (ROKU) - Get Roku Inc. Report shares were falling Tuesday after the stock was downgraded to equal weight from overweight at Stephens.

Analyst Kyle Evans wrote in a note to clients that he believes Roku's recent run and higher valuation, as well as higher expectations for the stock, increase its near-term risk.

The video-streaming platform's shares have jumped 50% in May alone, adding to a more than 250% gain since their December low. The stock'ss current valuation and historical volatility create near-term risk, Evans wrote.
