Lloyds weighs taking Bank of America's PPI hit in MBNA bid, Bloomberg reports

Lloyds Banking Group (LYG) is weighing taking on Bank of America's (BAC) liabilities in the U.K. payment protection-insurance scandal as it seeks to beat private-equity firms in the bidding for the MBNA credit-card business, Bloomberg reports, citing people with knowledge of the matter. The U.K.'s biggest mortgage lender is vying with firms such as Cerberus Capital and Advent International for Bank of America's MBNA card operations in the U.K., which has roughly $8.5B of assets, the report says. Barclays (BCS) is no longer interested in the MBNA assets due to antitrust worries, the report says. While Lloyds is trying to negotiate protection from BofA against future PPI redress, the U.S. lender has told suitors that it wants a clean break from the scandal and won't indemnify them against possible future charges, the report notes.

Conviction Sell
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.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Monsanto (MON) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying the risk in the shares is "less than what the market assumes." 2. Barclays (BCS) upgraded to Buy from Hold at HSBC citing the pending disposal of non-core businesses and resulting value creation. 3. Etsy (ETSY) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Monness Crespi with the firm's analyst believing that Etsy shares can still move higher and sees a solid opportunity for upward revisions from improving conversion rates due to enhanced search and mobile functionality, expanding take rates, and advanced cross-boarder commerce capabilities with vendors. 4. Clovis (CLVS) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Kennen MacKay saying the potential for a takeover "outweighs concerns surrounding patent life, limited experience in platinum resistant/refractory patients, and PARPi competition." 5. Jabil Circuit (JBL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Steven Milunovich saying the company's cash flow is nearing an inflection amid an upturn in its Apple (AAPL) business. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
