    Colfax (CFX -4%) slips on a Deutsche Bank downgrade from Buy to Hold on valuation as it approaches the firm's $54 price target. Deutsche says that it still sees more upside potential for the shares, but cautions that it carries the most exposure to higher growth/emerging markets within its coverage universe, and a lack of improvement in emerging markets could, at minimum, delay prospective volume recovery in the company's short cycle welding business and limit earnings upside in the near term.

    Colfax Corp. (CFX -2%) dips after its Q4 misses expectations on both EPS and revenue on greater-than-anticipated acquisition charges and a slowdown in earnings growth. The company has been on a buying binge recently, purchasing the welding-equipment maker Charter International PLC for $2.4B last month, and privately held Cot-Puritech for $34M in December.
