Expedia (NASDAQ:EXPE) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks from an outperform rating to a neutral rating. Zacks currently has $82.00 price target on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Expedia, Inc., one of the leading online travel companies in the world, reported in-line first quarter results. Order growth remained strong in the quarter, helped by a stronger travel market all over the world, contribution from the VIA and Trivago acquisitions, as well as the strategic expansion in Asia. The agency business looks good, which is no doubt benefiting from the ETP initiative. While we continue to believe in management’s growth strategy across markets, we think that the increasing competition in the domestic market and lack of ADR growth in emerging markets make margin expansion difficult. We therefore downgrade the shares to Neutral. “

Safeway (NYSE:SWY) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks from a neutral rating to an underperform rating. Zacks currently has $31.00 target price on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Amid a challenging macroeconomic environment coupled with dwindling customer confidence, Safeway is progressing successfully to merge with Albertsons for a deal value of $9.0 billion. Accordingly, the company distributed the remaining 37.8 million shares of Blackhawk Network to its shareholders and is currently looking for monetization of its 49% stake in Casa Ley. We believe the combined company will pose major challenges to its rivals, although uncertainty related to potential antitrust challenges from the FTC persists. Safeway reported an unimpressive first quarter 2014 with adjusted EPS lagging the Zacks Consensus Estimate and revenues remaining in line with the same. Margins continue to disappoint. Likewise, increasing competitive pricing pressures from large peers are other downsides. With the merger expected to complete successfully in the near future, the upside potential of the stock is limited. Accordingly we downgrade the stock to Underperform.”

Symetra Financial (NYSE:SYA) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks from an outperform rating to a neutral rating. They currently have $24.40 target price on the stock.

VASCO Data Security International (NASDAQ:VDSI) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks from an outperform rating to a neutral rating. They currently have $13.50 target price on the stock.

Wisconsin Energy Corp (NYSE:WEC) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks from an outperform rating to a neutral rating. The firm currently has $48.00 target price on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “We have downgraded our recommendation on Wisconsin Energy Corporation to Neutral from Outperform, primarily due to stringent environment regulations, possibilities of a delay or cancellation in distribution and generation projects, fuel price volatility and several operational risks. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently proposed new regulations to curb carbon emission from the existing plants during power generation. Coal still dominates a major portion of the company’s power generation mix. If the proposed regulations are implemented, Wisconsin Energy could experience increasing operating costs as a result of installing more pollution control measures. This will subsequently impact Wisconsin Energy’s future margins. However, a stable financial position, disciplined capital spending program and steady addition of new customers are expected to boost Wisconsin Energy’s future performance.”

Xoom Corp (NASDAQ:XOOM) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks from an outperform rating to a neutral rating. The firm currently has $29.30 price target on the stock.
