New York warns state regulated banks against Wells Fargo-like practices

The New York State Department of Financial Services issued new guidance directing all state regulated banks to ensure any employee incentive arrangements do not encourage "inappropriate" corporate practices. The precautionary measure follows a $100M fine and other penalties levied against Wells Fargo (WFC) by the federal government for programs that encouraged employees to boost sales figures. "State charters banks are now on notice," New York Governor Andrew Cuomo remarked. Companies with financial subsidiaries operating under a New York charter include Deutsche Bank (DB), BNY Mellon (BK), Goldman Sachs (GS), Citi (C), OneMain (OMF), Santander (SAN), Barclays (BCS), Credit Suisse (CS), and Northern Trust (NTRS).

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).

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.

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.

However, Rowan sees the company's planned sale of $400M of senior unsecured notes as a "positive affirmation" that such an equity raise is much less likely.

The analyst also downgraded Barclays (BCS) Deustche Bank (DB), Lloyds Banking (LYG) and Credit Suisse (CS) to Neutral from Overweight and RBS (RBS) to Underweight from Neutral. Barclays was also downgraded at Jefferies, BofA/Merrill and Exane BNP Paribas, RBS was also downgraded at RBC Capital, Societe Generale, Jefferies, BofA/Merrill and Exane BNP Paribas and Lloyds was also downgraded at Barclays and BofA/Merrill. 2. Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) downgraded to Buy from Conviction Buy at Goldman by analyst Stefan Burgstaller, who cited slower European volume growth, a weaker North American market outlook in out years and updated currency assumptions following the UK referendum. The analyst cut his price target for the shares to $8 from $12.80. 3. LyondellBasell (LYB) downgraded to Sector Perform from Outperform at RBC Capital by analyst Arun Viswanathan, who sees limited near-term catalysts given soft ethylene and polyethylene momentum and is cautious on the large increase of ethylene capacity in 2017/18 and potentially higher ethane prices, combined with higher capex needs. The analyst cut his price target to $84 from $100. 4. AGCO (AGCO) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan by analyst Ann Duignan, who cited weakening fundamentals in European agriculture. The company has the greatest exposure to Europe in our Machinery coverage, Duignan told investors in a research note. She cut her price target for the shares to $44 from $47. The analyst this morning also downgraded PACCAR (PCAR) and Parker-Hannifin (PH) to Underweight from Neutral. 5. NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill by analysts led by Vivek Arya, who lowered his price target to $90 from $100. Analysts lowered estimates given the company's heavy exposure to the Auto segment and industrial/infrastructure segment and likely pressure on top-line growth from Brexit. The analyst is less confidence NXP can grow top line year-over-year in 2016/17 and said the Freescale (FSL) acquisition and shareholder sales creates an overhang.

Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman by analyst Stephen Tanal, who said closure of the Sports Authority stores shortly after the July 15 sale hearing should boost investor confidence in the shares. Dick's is best positioned to benefit from store closures. He noted that his $53 price target represents 28% upside from current levels. 2. SolarCity (SCTY) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Avondale, which added it to the Conviction List in anticipation of a successful resolution to Tesla's (TSLA) acquisition bid for the company. 3. Olin Corp. (OLN) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Cowen by analyst Charles Neivert, who increased his price target to $31 from $18. The analyst raised 2017 EBITDA estimates above consensus to reflect reduced Dow transaction integration risks and synergies that may be more valuable than assumed. Neivert believes operational synergies for Olin could be over $300M, versus $250M guidance, reducing earnings' reliance on caustic soda price increases. 4. Northern Trust (NTRS) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi by analyst Keith Horowitz, citing valuation following the recent underperformance of bank stocks. The analyst keeps a $66 price target for the shares. 5. British American Tobacco (BTI) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Sell at Goldman by analyst Fulvio Cazzol, citing increased confidence in the company's growth outlook amid the pound weakness and higher growth from e-cigarettes. The analyst raised his price target for the shares to 5185p from 3620p. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Some banks have reached attractive entry points, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital believes that banks may be hurt by the Fed's decision to delay raising interest rates in the wake of Brexit, and the firm admits that ucertainty regarding the EU membership of other countries could hurt U.S. banks going forward. However, the firm adds that "a silver lining" could be a boost to banks' fixed income businesses. Additionally, the firm thinks that the 10% decline in the shares of some banks "seems to be a bit premature," with the valuation of a number of banks falling to "low levels." It recommends that investors buy the following bank stocks: lBB&T (BBT), Huntington Bancshares (HBAN), JPMorgan (JPM), KeyCorp (KEY), M&T Bank (MTB), Northern Trust (NTRS), PNC Financial (PNC) and U.S. Bancorp (USB). The firm adds that "risk oriented investors should look to buy" Bank of America (BAC) and Citi (C).
