Apollo Global led group to acquire significant position in OneMain Holdings

An investor group led by funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management (APO) and Varde Partners, announced they have entered into a definitive agreement with a company primarily owned by funds managed by an affiliate of Fortress Investment Group to acquire all of its remaining equity interest in OneMain Holdings (OMF) for $26.00 per share. Upon completion of the transaction, the Apollo and Varde led investor group will own approximately 40.5% of OneMain. The transaction, which is expected to close in the second quarter of 2018, is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.

Citi sees potential sale of Voya assets as win for three companies
Citi analyst Suneet Kamath says Voya Financial's (VOYA) potential sale of $50B in annuity assets to Apollo Global (APO) could be a win for both companies along with Athene Holding (ATH). Considering the relationship between Apollo and Athene, any transfer of general account assets from Voya to Apollo would eventually be housed in Athene, Kamath tells investors in a research note. He estimates a Voya annuity deal could add at least $2 to his Apollo price target. The analyst continues to see more upside in Apollo than Athene.

LPL Financial upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys raised his 2018 and 2019 EPS estimates by 25% and 20%, respectively, for discount brokers and 17% and 16%, respectively, for traditional asset managers, after updating for stronger equity markets, the latest forward curve and tax cuts. Given this context, he upgraded LPL Financial to Equal Weight from Underweight, stating that he views it as a key beneficiary of tax reform, rising short-term interest rates and strong equity markets. Cyprys increased his price target on LPL shares to $62 from $45. He also upgraded Apollo Global (APO) and E-Trade (ETFC), each to Overweight from Equal Weight.

As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys upgraded Apollo Global to Overweight from Equal Weight, noting that the company is entering its portfolio harvesting stage and he has become more bullish on its growth prospects with the credit business scaling faster. For Apollo, and other alternative asset managers, he also assumes lower tax rates and a higher multiple on fee-related earnings. Cyprys increased his price target on Apollo shares to $42 from $32.

OneMain Holdings 10-Q seems to end takeover speculation, says Janney Capital
Janney Capital analyst John Rowan noted that several media reports emerged in October that OneMain Holdings was up for sale, but the company's 10-Q contained "two inconspicuous sentences" that appeared to end that speculation, as OneMain stated that it "recently completed an evaluation of certain alternatives to maximize stockholder value, including a sale of its business. The evaluation has concluded and the company continues to implement its previously disclosed strategies." Since he had not adjusted his valuation of OneMain based on any takeover scenario, Rowan keeps a Neutral rating and $28 fair value estimate on the shares following the disclosure.

Synchrony, Discover among biggest beneficiaries of tax reform, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Moshe Orenbuch views tax reform as highly beneficial to U.S. consumer finance companies as most companies are full U.S. tax payers and any increases in consumer confidence from more cash flow could lead to more consumer borrowing, driving faster revenue growth and improved credit quality. His favorites to benefit from tax reform are Synchrony (SYF), Discover (DFS), OneMain (OMF), CIT Group (CIT), Santander Consumer (SC), Sallie Mae (SLM), and Air Lease (AL).

Citi views Legg Mason takeover as unlikely
Following yesterday's speculation, Citi analyst William Katz says a takeover of Legg Mason (LM) is unlikely. The analyst adds, however, that he can't completely rule out the possibility of a deal. Investors will likely focus on a potential suitor from Asia given the recent Fortress (FIG) announcement and China-based Shanda's sizable stake in Legg Mason, Katz tells investors in a research note. Merger speculation in the Asset Managers space could be incrementally positive for WisdomTree (WETF) and Waddell & Reed (WDR), two of the most likely "sale" candidates, the analyst contends. Katz has a Buy rating on Legg Mason with a $39 price target

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Urban Outfitters (URBN) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at William Blair analyst Dylan Carden saying near-term investment spending and a "more subdued" comp outlook should continue to delay margin recovery. 2. Nimble Storage (NMBL) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley, to Neutral from Positive at Susquehanna, to Sector Weight from Overweight at Pacific Crest, and to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo. 3. Fortress (FIG) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at JMP Securities. 4. BT Group (BT) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman with analyst Michael Bishop citing valuation following the recent rally in the shares. The analyst lowered his price target for the shares to $22 from $23.90. 5. Randgold (GOLD) downgraded to Underperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Tyler Broda saying he thinks that the company's "current growth phase" has ended, while its outlook has become less visible. Broda also cited valuation and his belief that gold prices will be challenged in the near-term amid interest rate increases as reasons for the downgrade. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
