Outperform
Lower expectations limit Wells Fargo downside, says Baird
Baird analyst David George said Wells Fargo reported messy Q1 results, but lowered expectations should limit the downside in the shares. The analyst said core fees were weak, but expenses were in line as was loan growth. George maintained his Outperform rating and $62 price target on Wells Fargo shares.

Wells Fargo earnings underwhelming, but not a value trap, says Nomura
Nomura Instinet analyst Bill Carcache lowered his price target for Wells Fargo to $68 from $72 saying Friday's earnings results were "underwhelming" as the company reported softer revenue growth. The analyst, however, continues to believe that shares of Wells Fargo are "not a value trap." Shareholders "able to weather the current storm" will be rewarded with 10% earnings growth, mid- to high-teens return on tangible equity, and a multiple rerating when the market regains confidence, Carcache tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

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.

Outperform
Wells Fargo double upgraded to Outperform at Macquarie
Macquarie analyst David Konrad upgraded Wells Fargo to Outperform from Underperform with a $61 price target citing attractive valuation, low expectations, and near-term catalysts. Konrad said valuation and consensus estimates have finally come down and said shares are trading at 11.3x his 2019 "stressed earnings" estimate, compared to super regionals trading at 12.3x. The analyst expects low expense guidance at the upcoming investor day and passing CCAR in June to serve as positive catalysts for shares.

Goldman Sachs price target raised to $245 from $221 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham raised his price target on Goldman Sachs (GS) to $245 after the company's Q1 revenue beat, saying it is "back to stealing market share in its core business" as its FICC - fixed income, currencies, and commodities - trading rose 23% vs. a 4% decline for peers. The analyst adds that while Goldman Sachs will continue to experience positive operating leverage, its valuation relative to Morgan Stanley (MS) cannot be justified, favoring the latter based on its greater exposure to higher-multiple asset management businesses. Fotheringham keeps his Market Perform rating on Goldman Sachs.

Goldman Sachs to benefit from market volatility, says Wells Fargo

Goldman could be one of the biggest volatility beneficiaries, Mayo tells investors in a research note. He notes Goldman generates the highest contribution from trading among the large U.S. banks, with Morgan Stanley (MS) being second. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on Goldman shares with a $330 price target.

The analyst cites his expectations of higher trading revenues and also points to lower EPS volatility relative to that Goldman Sachs (GS), even though Morgan Stanley's multiple of 9.7-times two-year-forward PE is below Goldman's 10-times.

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.

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.

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.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1.

BHP Billiton (BHP) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Liam Fitzpatrick saying the shares offer compelling value at current levels. 3. Mattel (MAT) upgraded to Hold from Underperform at Jefferies with analyst Stephanie Wissink saying the company's near-term risks are largely known and priced into the shares. 4. AeroVironment (AVAV) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Joseph DeNardi saying he sees the company benefiting from tailwinds including an improving defense budget environment, a heightened global threat environment, and "as strong a pipeline of opportunities" as he has seen in ten years. 5. Helmerich & Payne (HP) upgraded to Market Perform from Underperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Judson Bailey citing strength in the land rig market.

Goldman Sachs earnings inherently 'volatile', says Argus

Biggar further notes that as a "capital markets pure play", Goldman Sachs has move volatile earnings than other large global banks and is more dependent on client activity. The analyst further cites Q1 outperformance as a result of a "ripe environment" for Goldman's business mix, but does not expect market volatility to continue.
