Union adviser calls for employment practice reviews at U.S. banks, Reuters says

Union pension fund adviser CtW Investment Group called on board of big American banks to review their employment practices in the wake of Wells Fargo's (WFC) fake accounts scandal, Reuters reports. The union fund adviser added that it wouldn't likely support the re-election of directors who failed to comply, the report notes. CtW sent letters to directors at lenders such as JPMorgan (JPM), Bank of America (BAC), and Citigroup (C) calling for them to review practices in areas such as pay incentives or whether employees may face retaliation for facing concerns, the report says.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Wells Fargo (WFC) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst David Long saying the fallout from the unauthorized account openings will result in continued under performance. The analyst said several additional investigations, lawsuits, and fines have been announced, resulting in a still cloudy outlook. 2. Kinder Morgan (KMI) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel analyst Selman Akyol citing valuation. 3. GrubHub (GRUB) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst John Egbert citing valuation. 4. Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Evercore ISI with analyst Robert Ottenstein saying reports that Bai Brands is looking for a new owner are credible and could change investor's psychology on the stock and its Allied Brands business. 5. Dollar Tree (DLTR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Cleveland Research with the firm saying sales trends appear to have slowed further at Family Dollar as the company struggles with increased price competition, difficult comps, and strategy headwinds.

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).

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.

Tesla (TSLA) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman with analyst David Tamberrino saying he sees incremental risk to Tesla's business related to management's willingness to deploy capital for M&A, and he believes that any delay in the company's new Model 3 launch will be detrimental to shares. 2. JPMorgan (JPM) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Sandler O'Neill with analyst Jeffery Harte citing relative share outperformance. 3. Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc with analyst Jessica Schmidt saying the elevated promotions add to other headwinds, including the fact that the teen space is "overstored" and faces soft consumer demand and weak tourism. 4. American Express (AXP) downgraded to Reduce from Neutral at Nomura with analyst Bill Carcache saying the combination of weaker than expected revenues and higher than expected expenses will weigh on the shares. 5. Lowe's (LOW) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Cleveland Research. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Estee Lauder (EL) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst John Staszak saying it will be difficult for the company to achieve further market share gains, given increased competition, slowing growth in the premium beauty products space, and a "challenging" macro environment. 5.

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.

Goldman analyst Richard Ramsden downgraded Citi to Neutral and lowered his price target on the shares to $50 from $52. The analyst said Citi's expected earnings inflection has failed to materialize and ROEs are at 7.7%, well below management's 10% target. Ramsden's analysis suggests growth in higher return businesses, such as credit cards and wealth management, and expense discipline will not be enough to increase ROE all the way to its 10% target. Citi remains a capital returns story, constrained by the utilization of deferred tax assets, the analyst wrote in his report.
