In a report published Monday, Morgan Stanley analyst Ravi Shanker downgraded the rating on Johnson Controls (NYSE: JCI) from Overweight to Underweight, and lowered the price target from $45.00 to $40.00.

In the report, Morgan Stanley noted, “We moved JCI near the top of our rankings a year ago because we saw far more scenarios where JCI could win than lose. However, with execution back on track, a new CEO lobbying for change and the stock at $43, expectations into the analyst day may be too high.”

Johnson Controls closed on Friday at $42.53.
