Jefferies downgraded Itron (NASDAQ: ITRI) from Buy to Hold.

Jefferies noted, "The industry is moving back to the mean after stimulus drove above average growth rates for the sector in 2009-2012. Weakness is expected for the next few quarters and has been well telegraphed by management. However, in the absence of near-term order wins, overly optimistic consensus estimates, as well as an uncertain trajectory for ITRI's core business in the next 2 quarters, we are moving to the sidelines."

Itron closed at $44.98 on Wednesday.
