NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Garmin (GRMN) were dropping in pre-market trading on Wednesday as the stock's rating was reduced to "sell" from "hold" at Goldman Sachs.

The firm has a $46 price target on shares of the Swiss navigation and wireless device company.

Goldman expects Garmin to underperform as its key fitness and outdoor segment decelerates from 29% growth in the 2016 second quarter to 7% growth in the 2017 second quarter.

The firm also noted several negative catalysts for the stock over the next months, including increased competitor product launches, higher competition from new emerging consumer electronics categories and difficult comparable-store sales, the Fly reports.
