Will This Downgrade Hurt B/E Aerospace (BEAV) Stock Today?

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of B/E Aerospace Inc. (BEAV) were downgraded to "neutral" from "buy" this morning at UBS.

"We believe the sale or spin-off of Consumables Management is the most likely outcome of BEAV's review of strategic alternatives...current levels reflect a middle of the range valuation for CMS with modest upside potential to $105-$110 per share.," their note said.

We think sale of the entire company could yield upside to $120, we see this as less likely and as a result are downgrading BEAV," the note added.
