Banks to get green light to increase dividends, share repurchases, Barron's says

Big banks are expected to get the green light from the Federal Reserve to "shower their shareholders" with increased dividends and share repurchases, and announcements of capital returns could provide a lift to bank stocks, Andrew Bary writes in this week's edition of Barron's. Among the biggest banks, JPMorgan (JPM) may raised its dividend by about 50%, boosting its yield to 3%, while Citigroup (C) could be cleared to repurchase 10% of its stock, the report notes.

Market Perform
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.

Bernstein offers list of possible CEOs for Amazon-Berkshire-JPMorgan venture
After Berkshire' (BRK.A) Warren Buffett and JPMorgan's (JPM) Jamie Dimon announced on CNBC that they have selected a CEO for their healthcare joint venture with Amazon (AMZN) and added that they would announce the name in about two weeks, Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes noted that Geisinger CEO David Feinberg denied accepting the position and said he is committed to Geisinger. The ultimate choice of the CEO will inform on the intended scope of the NewCo and how the companies will prioritize strategic direction and needed capabilities, said Wilkes, who offered a list of potential CEO candidates that includes Gary Loveman, Rick Jelinek, Matt Manders, Patrick Conway, Amir Rubin, Owen Tripp, Chris Grant, Marc Harrison, Andy Slavitt, Todd Park and Peter Orszag.

Amazon/JPMorgan/Berkshire venture still negative for drug supply chain, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes notes that Amazon (AMZN), Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A; BRK.B) and JPMorgan (JPM) announced the appointment of Atul Gawande as the CEO of their new healthcare joint venture, effective July 9th. The analyst sees this appointment as indicating an emphasis on enablement of change in the system, along with thought and policy leadership, and believes the appointment of an operating oriented President or COO could refine the outlook for scope. Wilkes continues to see this venture as negative for drug supply chain and self-insured employer oriented MCOs.

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Citi (C) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank. 2. BT Group (BT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Jeremy Dellis saying reducing the dividend to increase investment in fiber-to-the-premises networks to satisfy demands by British telecommunications regulator Ofcom could make BT a "geat deal more investable." 3. Duke Energy (DUK) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith citing recent share underperformance and resolved regulatory overhangs. 4. Glatfelter (GLT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at DA Davidson with analyst Steven Chercover saying he is "incrementally positive" on the stock based on his view of the announced acquisition of GP's European airlaid nonwoven business, which adds 35K tonnes per year in capacity to the company's existing 129K tpy. 5. Intelsat (I) upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital with analyst Wilton Fry citing his expected FCC release of the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking this week that will lead to adoption of the company's C-band proposal, "conservatively" estimating that this could add over $19 in earnings per share.
