As if gold mining stocks aren't facing enough headwinds today (I, II), Credit Suisse downgrades Barrick Gold (ABX -6.4%) to Neutral from Outperform with a $20 target, saying ABX needs to provide clarity on the path for Pascua and for handling asset sales and its financial leverage. Also downgraded to Neutral at CS: Silver Wheaton (SLW -5.3%), Pan American Silver (PAAS -1.9%).
