Investment advisor T. Rowe Price Group, Inc. ( TROW ) on Wednesday saw its rating cut by analysts at Goldman Sachs.
The firm said it downgraded TROW from "Buy" to "Neutral" with a $70 price target. That target suggests a nearly 11% upside from the stock's Tuesday closing price of $63.30.
A Goldman analyst commented, "Performance and flows are solid, but with 75% of AUM in EQ, less robust assumptions for market performance, and a lumpier path of organic growth, we prefer less equity exposure and look for better risk/rewards."
T. Rowe Price shares were mostly flat in premarket trading Wednesday.
