"They fired the CEO. They fired the CFO. They fired the chief accounting officer," Cramer said. "That's a sub-optimal situation."

RBC downgraded the company's stock to underperform from outperform.

"This is actually a very mundane group of retail properties," Cramer said. "It's considered pretty good."

In RBC's analyst report, Cramer noted that the firm said that Brixmor Property needs time to heal.

"To everything, turn, turn, turn," Cramer said. "It's an Ecclesiastes situation developing here."
