Strategic buyer could pay up to $40 per share for LPL Financial, says SunTrust

After Reuters reported that LPL Financial has hired an investment bank to explore a possible sale, SunTrust analyst Douglas Mewhirter said he believes that a strategic buyer would be able to pay $40 per share and still get an acceptable return. Mewhirter increased his price target on LPL shares to $35 from $30 to reflects a 50% chance of a deal closing at $40 within 12 months and keeps a Hold rating on the shares, which rose 6.9% yesterday to close at $33.01.

LPL Financial initiated with an Underweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys initiated LPL Financial with an Underweight and a $27 price target. The analyst expects LPL to be pressured by the DOL Fiduciary Rule which could accelerate the shift towards lower cost asset fee-based products and away from transaction based economics.

LPL Financial downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Kenneth Worthington downgraded LPL Financial to Neutral saying the share rally on takeover speculation provides an opportunity to exit the name. LPL has the potential to be an attractive buyout target, but any deal would come with "significant 'baggage,'" Worthington tells investors in a research note. The legal liability could be material in front of the implementation of new Department of Labor rules, the analyst contends. Worthington raised his price target for LPL shares to $31 from $30.

Wells doesn't see many 'obvious buyers' of LPL Financial
Wells Fargo analyst Christopher Harris found the Reuters article saying LPL Financial (LPLA) hired Goldman Sachs (GS) to explore strategic alternatives as a surprise. Recent actions by the company, including a levered stock buyback in December, would seem to suggest a focus on remaining independent, Harris tells investors in a research note. The analyst doesn't see "too many obvious" buyers of the company and thinks investors should not chase the stock on the Reuters story. A private equity transaction would be complicated by the fact that LPL is already fairly levered, the analyst contends. He keeps a Market Perform rating on the shares. JPMorgan this morning downgraded LPL to Neutral.
