Morgan Stanley downgraded Millennial Media (NYSE: MM) from Overweight to Equal-weight and lowered the price target from $18.00 to $14.00.

Morgan Stanley said, "Management blamed 4Q revenue underperformance on certain large brand campaigns that fell through at the end of the quarter. While this seems reasonable, disappointing 1Q and FY2013 guidance suggest a steep deceleration (to 50s growth from 88% in 3Q) and the potential for emerging competitive concerns. In particular, we see risk that competitors including Google and Facebook may be taking share, as they offer advertisers and agencies a single point of contact for desktop, mobile, and social ad campaigns."

Millennial Media closed at $14.33 on Tuesday.
