Shares of Weatherford (WFT) were lower over 2.5% during Thursday morning trading after the stock was downgraded to "Neutral" from "Buy" at Goldman Sachs with a $7.25 price target. 

New short-term catalysts are unlikely, Goldman Sachs analyst Waqar Syed noted. 

Syed added that first quarter consensus estimates are too high, cash flow remains weak and expects outflows in first quarter, and he does not anticipate any significant strategy announcement on the first quarter conference call.
