Axcelis Technologies (NASDAQ:ACLS) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks from a neutral rating to an underperform rating. Zacks currently has $1.60 target price on the stock.

Acxiom (NASDAQ:ACXM) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks from a neutral rating to an underperform rating. They currently have $17.00 price target on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “We are changing our long-term recommendation on Acxiom from Neutral to Underperform as we anticipate it to perform well below the broader equity market. Acxiom reported dismal first quarter fiscal 2015 results as adjusted earnings missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by $0.04. High operating expenses and restructuring costs continue to be a drag on the profitability of the company. Acxiom also operates in a competitive landscape that is becoming more complex with low barriers to entry, adding to its operating risks. However, the company is focusing on its core businesses across key regions for augmenting long-term margins. Acxiom also expects to improve top-line growth through the acquisition of LiveRamp while continuing to invest in product enhancements and connectivity. “

Five9 (NASDAQ:FIVN) was downgraded by analysts at Bank of America to a buy rating. The firm currently has $8.50 price target on the stock, down from their previous price target of $10.00. The analysts wrote, “The stock is down -24% in the after-market after FIVN reported in-line 2Q results and lowered 2014 revenue guidance by 4% ($4mn) at the second earnings call as a public company. This development is clearly disappointing but we believe market fundamentals are positive while the company’s technology and product functionality is improving. The $4m impact ($2m per quarter) is split 70% in usage and 30% in seats. “Six large customers (three healthcare and three business process outsourcers), which remain FIVN customers, scaled back as the Affordable Healthcare Act impacted spending plans. We estimate 1,000+ seats were impacted or ~3% of the install base. FIVN increased net income guidance slightly as it slowed down hiring of non-customer facing personnel. 2Q revenues, gross margins, and EPS came largely in-line. We lower our revenues by $2m/quarter, in-line with the slower spending for 2014 per quarter by these six customers. In light of the market potential, we view the current growth vs margin trade-off as the right strategy.”
