Fifth Third downgraded to Equal Weight at Stephens

As previously reported, Stephens analyst Terry McEvoy downgraded Fifth Third (FITB) to Equal Weight from Overweight on valuation. The analyst now sees the underlying value and capital flexibility from the company's investment in Vantiv (VNTV) as being largely reflected in the stock's valuation and have more comfort in future expense trends. Given the outperformance at Fifth Third, McEvoy believes investors should take profits and move into KeyCorp (KEY).

Fifth Third upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Compass Point
Compass Point upgraded Fifth Third to Buy and raised its price target to $23.50 from $21 following the announcement of a new revenue/cost initiative at an investor conference. The announcement of the program changes the firm's view following what it considers a "lost year" for Fifth Third in 2016 characterized by a jump in expenses driven by technology investments, NIM compression, and a stagnation in EPS growth. Although most details on the new initiative were light, the company did reveal specifics surrounding its new GreenSky partnership as well as an additional round of branch closures.

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).

As previously reported, CLSA downgraded Vantiv to Outperform from Buy.
