Bank of America’s Cynthia Mayer downgraded the rating on Eaton Vance Corp. from “neutral” to “underperform,” according to the financial blog She reiterated her $42 price target. “We expect EV to underperform peers, as above-average flows are already reflected in its premium and recent flows to floating rate funds may be fading slightly,” Mayer wrote. “Its equity fund performance has been average YTD, but ahead of peers on a 1, 5, and 10-year basis.”
