DoJ will not destabilize Deutsche Bank, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Jaret Seiberg sees little practical or political upside for the Justice Department to press Deutsche Bank for a penalty that is so large it could destabilize the bank and create a new financial crisis. He expects the penalty for violations related to mortgage-backed securities to be structured below the speculated $14B that seems to have alarmed the market. Seiberg adds both sides have incentives to reach a deal quickly.

Bank of America operating leverage hitting an inflection, says Goldman
Goldman analyst Richard Ramsden believes Bank of America is hitting an inflection point in operating leverage driven by low single digit growth, stable credit, and absolute reductions in the expense base. The analyst believes topline growth will reach approximately 4% annually through to 2018, driven by consumer bank and wealth management initiatives. Ramsden reiterates his Conviction Buy rating on Bank of American and raised his price target to $19 from $17 given the combination of revenue growth and expense discipline.

Bank of America at an inflection point, says Goldman
Goldman analyst Richard Ramsden believes Bank of America's operating leverage is at an inflection point as revenue growth and cost reductions from back office rationalization take effect. Ramsden met with CEO Moynihan and said he believes the company can grow core loans, without compromising credit quality, at mid-single digit rates, and expects the fee-based businesses to benefit from growth in checking accounts, mortgage activity, and market share gains. Ramsden believes Bank of America can achieve 10% ROTCE and views valuation as compelling. He rates shares a Buy with a $17 price target.

Wells Fargo price target lowered to $50 from $59 at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Matt O'Connor lowered his price target for Wells Fargo to $50 saying it's "tough to argue for much upside in the near term." The analyst, however, believes that over the next year, Wells Fargo's issues should subside and its "attractive valuation should be more relevant." After laying out the bull and bear thesis on the shares, O'Connor sees 5%-12% relative upside in the name. He keeps a Buy rating on Wells Fargo.

Huntington Bancshares upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Matt O'Connor upgraded Huntington Bancshares to Buy saying the 15% pullback in the shares since the FirstMerit (FMER) deal was announced is overdone. The analyst views industry-wide concerns surrounding consumer indirect auto lending as overblown and he raised his price target for Huntington shares to $11.50 from $10.50. Going into the Q3 results for U.S. banks, O'Connor likes JPMorgan (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC) and is cautious on Fifth Third (FITB).

JPMorgan analyst Vivek Juneja downgraded Wells Fargo to Neutral saying the "tough" Senate hearings and "mounting public scrutiny" will likely result in additional investigations that could pressure expenses. There is "significant uncertainty about how much some issues will cost and how long they will take," Juneja tells investors in a research note. He believes Wells will need to spend a lot more on litigation and that its revenues "will likely face some slowdown in growth." Juneja cut his price target for the shares to $48 from $53.50. Wells Fargo closed yesterday up 55c to $46.56.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wells Fargo (WFC) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Vivek Juneja saying the "tough" Senate hearings and "mounting public scrutiny" will likely result in additional investigations that could pressure expenses. 2. Skechers (SKX) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Jay Sole saying he believes consumers shift towards pure fashion styles and away from athletic footwear is causing Skechers to adjust assortment, resulting in slower sales growth. 3. American Airlines (AAL) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Raymond James analyst Savanthi Syth citing relative valuation and lowered estimates to reflect the new mechanics contract. 4. Boston Beer (SAM) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Cowen with analyst Vivien Azer citing its string of disappointing monthly Nielsen data and structural headwinds to the company's core assets, which present meaningful earnings risk. 5. Children's Place (PLCE) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Stephanie Wissink saying the firm's recent survey of moms pointed to a "step down" in mindshare.

NXP 'cheap' for Qualcomm even after rally, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Rick Schafer says NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) still a "cheap" takeover target for Qualcomm (QCOM) even after rallying 25% over the past two days.

NXP Semiconductors could be acquired for $124 per share, says SunTrust
After Dow Jones reported that NXP (NXPI) is in talks to be bought by Qualcomm (QCOM) for more than $95 per share, SunTrust analyst William Stein says that, based on recent takeover valuations in the semiconductor space, NXP would be acquired for $124 per share. The analyst says that NXP is worth $104 per share on a standalone basis, and he does not expect the company to sell itself for $95. Stein adds that NXP would improve Qualcomm's efforts in NFC and automotive. He expects NXP's stock to rise whether or not a deal is made, and he keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Qualcomm upgraded on potential NXP Semiconductors acquisition at Mizuho

Qualcomm dominates automotive telematics and the firm believes the potential acquisition of NXP Semiconductors will give it incockpit market share, powertrain, safety, and an automotive processor portfolio from Freescale that creates the first end-to-end semiconductor auto supplier of the future.
