Bank of America NII softness could weight on shares, says Nomura Instinet
Nomura Instinet analyst Steven Chubak said Bank of America reported a modest core beat but the NII miss and elevated bar for Q3 could result in modest share underperformance. The analyst remains encouraged by fee income resiliency, favorable credit trends, strong capital build, and compelling risk/reward, and reiterates his Buy rating and $27 price target.

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.

DOJ appointment catalyst for CenturyLink, Level 3 deal, says Raymond James
Makan Delrahim was finally confirmed by the Senate yesterday as head of the Department of Justice Antitrust Division, Raymond James analyst Frank Louthan tells investors in a research note. He believes not having an antitrust head is at least partially to blame for the delay in mergers and acquisitions in the Technology & Communications space this year, including outstanding transactions like CenturyLink (CTL)/Level 3 Communications (LVLT) and AT&T (T)/Time Warner (TWX), as well as potential deals like Sprint (S)/T-Mobile U.S. (TMUS). The appointment of Delrahim is a catalyst for the approval of CenturyLink's acquisition of Level 3, where the Department of Justice has been the bottleneck, Louthan writes.

Oppenheimer boosts Netflix target to $215 on price increase
Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein raised is price target for Netflix shares to $215 from $200 after the streaming service announced a forthcoming pricing increase to its monthly plans. Netflix closed yesterday up 5%, or $9.94, to $194.39. Helfstein estimates the $1 increase to the standard tier and $2 increase to premium plans will result in 10% higher average selling prices and 4% higher 2018 and 2019 U.S. revenue. This should add to the bottom line, but increased profitability in the U.S. will go to funding international content, Helfstein tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Outperform rating on Netflix.

Netflix price increase good for Disney, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Ken Sena views the 10% price increase announced yesterday by Netflix (NFLX) as good for Disney (DIS). The analyst believes the move by Netflix suggests his model for Disney's steaming app, which he priced at $9.99 per month two years from now, could have upside. He believes the timing makes for sense for Netflix, since it continues to gain subscribers despite streaming bundles and is adding originals. Sena out Outperform ratings on both Disney and Netflix.

The analyst assumes that the price increase could be fully in place by the end of Q4. Janedis sees only modest churn from the news and additional domestic revenue of $510M. He keeps a Hold rating on Netflix.

Citi may have 'even more upside potential,' says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Mike Mayo says Citigroup remains his top bank selection, but could have even more upside potential with restructuring. The analyst believes Citi can sell parts easier than realized, especially given only ''limited'' countries where consumer and institutional are highly integrated and an ability to divest consumer assets mostly by geography. Citi should at least remain open to more restructuring, he contends. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.
