Michael Rose at Raymond James thinks Pinnacle Financial Partners shares are ready to take a breather after running up almost 70 percent so far this year. On the heels of the bank's Q3 profits report, he has downgraded Pinnacle to 'market perform' from 'outperform.' His price target of $30 is about 5 percent below where the stock (Ticker: PNFP) is trading early this morning.

Scholes has hiked his rating on the Nashville-based real estate investment trust to 'neutral' from 'underweight' but kept his price target at $34. Scholes' downgrade early this year took a while to look good as Ryman (Ticker: RHP) climbed above $45 but he nailed its eventual drop into the mid-$30s, where the stock has spent a lot of time since early June.
