Big bank set-up not great, would sell into extended rally, says Baird
Baird analyst David George does not see a great set-up for money-center banks heading into Q2 earnings. He said the trade looks crowded and he would be a seller into an extended rally. George said the risk/reward is less attractive following the sector's most recent rally as economic growth remains muted and the pace of NIM expansion may slow. George believes the biggest potential catalyst would be a gradual steepening of the yield curve and pick-up on loan growth.

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.

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.
