Latam Airlines (LFL) Stock Slides on Rating Downgrade

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Latam Airlines Group  (LFL) are declining by 2.58% to $6.04 in mid-afternoon trading on Tuesday, after Goldman Sachs cut its rating on the stock to "sell" from "neutral."

The downgrade on shares of the Chile-based airline reflects weakness in Brazil and internationally, Barron's reports.

Additionally, airline companies continue to be under pressure following this weekend's deadly shooting at an LGBT nightclub in Orlando, FL. Shares of airlines often tumble following mass shootings as consumers concerned for their safety are less inclined to travel. 

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates the stock as a "sell" with a ratings score of D.

Latam Airlines's weaknesses include its generally high debt management risk, weak operating cash flow and generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself.
