Citi 'inclined to fade' September rally in TD Ameritrade
Citi analyst William Katz attributes the 5% September rally in shares of TD Ameritrade (AMTD) to speculation around a possible acquisition of E-Trade (ETFC). The rally in the shares likely discounts the earnings accretion from such a merger, Katz tells investors in a research note. He believes TD Ameritrade shares at current levels leave "no room for a bad outcome," which he defines as the company deciding not to pursue the deal or E-Trade acquiring Scottrade. As such, Katz says he's "inclined to fade the rally" in TD Ameritrade. The analyst has a Neutral rating on the shares with a $31.50 price target. TD Ameritrade is up 2% in early trading to $35.08.

TD Ameritrade upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Michael Carrier upgraded TD Ameritrade (AMTD) to Buy and raised its price target to $43 from $33. The analyst sees upside from higher interest rates given TD Ameritrade's exposure to the curve and from other strategic factors including M&A activity and/or competitive/pricing. Carrier said M&A speculation in the space is picking up and said its plausible for TD Ameritrade to acquire privately held Scottrade and/or E-Trade (ETFC).

E-Trade, Ameritrade deal less likely over next year, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Brian Bedell believes TD Ameritrade's (AMTD) acquisition of Scottrade makes an E-Trade (ETFC)/Ameritrade deal "much less likely" for at least 12-18 months. The analyst expects pricing competition to rise as e-brokers look to attract Scottrade and Ameritrade customers via various discounts. Bedell views Charles Schwab (SCHW) as the best positioned in this environment. The analyst has Buy ratings on Schwab and E-Trade and a Hold rating on TD Ameritrade.
