Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX) analysts downgraded to Hold from Buy with a 12.50 price target at Deutsche Bank. Note that the stock was trading under 11 just two weeks ago, and its 52-wk trading range is 3.52 – 14.26.

They see its premium modules having a harder time selling, and shares were down nearly 6% at 6.82 Thursday.
