BofA CEO opens debate on lower mortgage down payments, Reuters reports

Bank of America (BAC) CEO Brian Moynihan said cutting standard mortgage down payments for buyers to 10% from 20% would allow banks to supply a larger share of funding for home purchases, Reuters reports, citing a CNBC interview. The majority of mortgages are underwritten to standards set by Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FMCC). "Our goal - going back to regulatory reform - is should you move the down payment requirement from 20% to 10? It wouldn't introduce that much risk but would actually help a lot of mortgages get done," Moynihan said. Reference Link

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Disney (DIS) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Loop Capital with analyst David Miller citing valuation following the stock hitting a 52-week high on Friday. The strength in the stock over the last nine months has appropriately priced in the company's growth rate, said Miller, who maintains a $118 price target on Disney shares. 2. Groupon (GRPN) downgraded to Underweight on lackluster ad spend at Morgan Stanley with analyst Brian Nowak saying its recent local advertiser survey indicate lackluster forward advertiser spending and believes Groupon will need to spend more in order to grow North America Local Billings, which the Street seems to be underestimating. 3. Grainger (GWW) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at William Blair with analyst Ryan Merkel citing a lack of confidence in the company's repricing strategy. 4. Bank of America (BAC) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Berenberg with analyst James Chappell saying it is time to take profits. Interest rates unlikely to rise as much as has been priced into bank equity valuations, Chappell tells investors in a research note. Further, regulation and tax reform are likely to take longer than expected and not be as beneficial for the banks as many might have hoped, the analyst adds. He upped his price target for Bank of America shares to $22 from $15. 5. DuPont Fabros (DFT) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with analyst Matthew Heinz saying shares are fully valued and demand patterns have shifted.

Glass-Steagall return wouldn't find support in Congress, says Evercore ISI
After media reports claimed White House economic adviser Gary Cohn supports rules to make banks split their consumer lending units from their investment divisions, which hints at a return of the "Glass-Steagall" law that was ended by President Clinton and a Republican Congress in 1999, Evercore ISI analyst Terry Haines said there is little support in Congress for a return of the law. Any new bank regulations can't "be done with the stroke of a pen" and will have to go through the usual regulatory process, added Haines. Publicly traded large banks include Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC).

Fannie, Freddie equity has little value even in 'best case,' says Keefe Bruyette
Keefe Bruyette analyst Bose George noted that comments from incoming Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has sparked a sharply rally in shares of Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FMCC), but he believes that even in the best case scenario, which he identifies as the shares being privatized with a 2.5% capital requirement, the capital need will meaningfully dilute the common shares, leaving them with little value. He reiterates his Underperform ratings and $1 price targets on the common shares of both Fannie and Freddie.
