Brizay will be Bank of America's head of consumer and retail investment banking for EMEA. Laurent Dhome, UBS' lender's managing director for financial sponsors in Europe, is also heading to Bank of America to work in an advisory role. They both will join in August.Reference Link

Credit Suisse upgrades UBS after ultra high net worth market analysis
Credit Suisse analyst Jon Peace upgraded UBS to Outperform from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to 22 francs from 17.50 francs. An analysis of global growth trends in the ultra high net worth market implies net new money growth could be near double current consensus, Peace tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes the end of tax regularization outflows in Q2 will see UBS Wealth deliver net new money at the top end of its 3%-5% guidance. Further, he believes the market is pricing in too low a probability of a buyback.

Luxoft downgraded to Hold on 'elongated turnaround' at Pivotal Research
As previously reported, Pivotal Research analyst Lou Miscioscia downgraded Luxoft (LXFT) to Hold from Buy, as he now expects most of FY19 to be "a struggle." He had expected the company's two biggest customers - namely Deutsche Bank (DB) and UBS (UBS) - to be about flat for FY19, but now they are suggested to be down 20% and 5%, respectively, Miscioscia said. Noting also that the company cut its FY18 guidance along with its Q3 report, the analyst lowered his price target on Luxoft to $48 from $70.

GE likely to be dropped from Dow 30 index, says Deutsche Bank
General Electric (GE) is likely to be dropped from the Dow Jones Industrial Average after being in the index of 30 companies for over 110 years as an original member since 1896, Deutsche Bank analyst John Inch tells investors in a research note. The chances that GE could be removed from the Dow are increasing as the company continues to face "substantial challenges," the analyst writes. These include "earnings and cash pressure, tough global power generation markets, aggressive downsizing, shrinking its portfolio, management shake-up and SEC investigations," Inch argues. He sees "headline risk" as the most significant risk factor if GE were to be dropped from the Dow, "potentially amplified by GE's high mix of retail investors." Inch notes that the last major Dow shakeup occurred in September 2003, when American Airlines (AAL), Bank of America (BAC) and Hewlett Packard (HPQ) were removed and Goldman Sachs (GS), Nike (NKE) and Verizon (VZ) were added. Inch has a Sell rating on General Electric with a $15 price target. The shares closed yesterday down 33c to $15.95.

BofA, JPMorgan, Citi best positioned for tougher CCAR test, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck said she had expected an easier stress test from the Federal Reserve but that the 2018 CCAR test actually seems tougher than last year, given the more intense recessions and lower asset prices modeled in it. A tougher test makes her less optimistic on her strong payout growth expectations, said Graseck, who sees Bank of America (BAC), JPMorgan (JPM) and Citi (C) as best positioned to "weather the storm" and increase payouts given their resilient balance sheets and significant excess capital. She sees Goldman Sachs (GS), which recently cut buybacks, as at risk from a tougher test, which likely weighs on the bank's 2018 ask, Graseck added.

Bank of America pullback provides a buying opportunity, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham says that the recent near-10% pullback in the Bank of America stock price provides investors with a buying opportunity. The analyst contends that the bank's stock trades much more closely in line with short term interest rates rather than the 10-year and believes that its net interest margins will prove to be "insensitive" to lower yields on the benchmark as well as higher LIBOR-OIS spreads. Fotheringham keeps his $34 price target and Market Perform rating on Bank of America, adding that its current two-year-forward P/E valuation multiple is close to its long-term historical average.

Bank of America is the best of the 'big four' U.S. banks, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham kept his Market Perform rating and $34 price target on Bank of America (BAC) after its in-line Q1 earnings but raised his FY18 EPS view to $2.62 from $2.59 and FY19 view to $3.18 from $3.12. Fotheringham says than in contrast, he lowered earnings forecasts for JPMorgan (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC), and Citigroup (C) because of higher costs and lower revenues, but Bank of America's better than expected net interest income rise justifies his view of the bank as the "best of the bunch". The analyst also notes the bank's more favorable valuation trading at a below-average two-year-forward P/E multiple despite his forecast of double the core earnings growth rate of Bank of America's peers.
