Macquarie upgrades Barclays to Neutral, starts HSBC at Outperform

In a research note on the sector titled "Upside Delayed," Macquarie analyst Robert Sage argues that banking activities in the United Kingdom are facing macro challenges. After restructurings, cost cuts and re-sizing capital bases, the European banking sector "now faces economic headwinds from Brexit," Sage writes after taking over coverage of the space. The analyst upgraded Barclays (BCS) to Neutral from Underperform with a price target of 182p. He believes the shares are trading on low valuation multiples. Sage initiated coverage of HSBC (HSBC) with an Outperform rating and price target of 846p. The analyst says the bank combines an "attractive mixture" of growth, income and improving profitability. Sage downgraded Lloyds Banking (LYG) to Underperform from Neutral with a reduced price target of 57p. The shares trade at relatively high multiples, Sage writes. The analyst also downgraded RBS (RBS) to Neutral from Outperform with a price target of 269p and initiated Standard Chartered (SCBFF) with a Neutral rating and 726p price target.

As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Claire Kane upgraded Lloyds Banking to Outperform from Neutral and raised her price target on the shares to 80p from 75p.
