Lloyds in lead to acquire MBNA, FT says

Lloyds (LYG) has moved ahead of private equity firm Cerberus to emerge as lead bidder for Bank of America's (BAC) MBNA credit card business, reports the Financial Times, citing sources. The British bank previously signaled that it could drop its pursuit of MBNA if Bank of America didn't agree to pay fines related to the so-called PPI, or payment protection insurance, scandal, but BofA has now agreed to compensate the buyer if those costs exceed a fixed cap, the report notes. One of the sources told the publication that Lloyds could "seal a deal" in 1Q17. Reference Link

Neutral
Bank of America downgraded to Neutral on valuation at Guggenheim
As previously reported, Guggenheim downgraded Bank of America to Neutral from Buy and raised its price target to $22 from $19. Analyst Eric Wasserstrom said valuation embeds his above consensus earnings estimate for 2017-18 and any upside will be increasingly driven by macro-factors rather than company specific drivers.

Bank of America downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Baird
As previously reported, Baird analyst David George downgraded Bank of America to Neutral from Buy as he believes the post-election rally has largely discounted the potential benefits of rising interest rates, lower taxes, and more aggressive capital return. George raised his price target to $18 from $17 on Bank of America shares.
