Outerwall Inc. (NASDAQ:OUTR): Pacific Crest believes that Outerwall is worth less than $50 per share in “most reasonable scenarios.” The firm believes that the bull case on the stock mostly focuses on increased demand for the shares rather than on the potential for true long-term value creation. Increased leverage could put the company at risk for bankruptcy, Pacific Crest says, which keeps an Underperform rating on the shares.
Aegerion Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ:AEGR): FBR Capital recommends shares of Aegerion following the recent selloff and keeps an Outperform rating on the name with a $111 price target.

The firm sees opportunity at the Aegerion’s current levels.
SanDisk Corp. (NASDAQ:SNDK): Susquehanna believes SanDisk could see some near-term choppiness, but the firm would use any weakness as a buying opportunity.
