Deutsche declares Wells Fargo, SunTrust, Huntington the CCAR winners
Deutsche Bank analyst Matt O'Connor views Wells Fargo (WFC), SunTrust (STI) and Huntington Bancshares (HBAN) as the winners of the Federal Reserve's Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review. The banks separately disclosed planned dividend increases and buybacks for the next four quarters, O'Connor tells investors in a research note. He points out that while JPMorgan (JPM), KeyCorp (KEY) and M&T Bank (MTB) "all used the mulligan," he does not view this as negative.

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.

Bank of America, Morgan Stanley top ideas into Q2 earnings season, says Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Richard Ramsden expects Bank of America (BAC) and Morgan Stanley (MS) to beat consensus estimates in Q2. The analyst argues that both appear best positioned, while he sees risk for U.S. Bancorp (USB) and JPMorgan (JPM). Ramsden highlights Bank of America given the material valuation dislocation that looks to support the stock over time. Additionally, the analyst expects an expense and NII beat for Morgan Stanley.

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.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. RPM (RPM) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Jeffrey Zekauskas saying he believes investors are now more willing to pay a higher multiple for RPM EBITDA because of new possibilities of cost reduction, changes in capital structure, or overall changes to the company given the involvement of activist Elliott Management. 2. Capital One (COF) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Moshe Orenbuch citing improving credit quality, ahead of the industry. 3. Wells Fargo (WFC) upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Betsy Graseck stating that the bank's passing the 2018 CCAR stress test removes an overhang and indicates to her that the Fed is receptive of the changes Wells is making. 4. ZTE Corp. (ZTCOY) upgraded to Buy from Underperform at Jefferies with analyst Edison Lee saying Li Zixue becoming Chairman of the Board is an important step toward meeting the conditions of the company's settlement with the U.S. 5. Curtiss-Wright (CW) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at William Blair with analyst Nicholas Heymann saying the valuation is "compelling" following the recent correction in the shares.

Equal Weight
Wells Fargo upgraded to Equal Weight after CCAR test pass at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck upgraded Wells Fargo to Equal Weight from Underweight, stating that the bank's passing the 2018 CCAR stress test removes an overhang and indicates to her that the Fed is receptive of the changes Wells is making. Not only did Wells pass, the Fed approved buybacks that were almost twice her estimates, Graseck tells investors. Higher buybacks took her EPS estimate up 4% and Graseck raised her price target on Wells Fargo shares to $62 from $57.

Goldman says Wells Fargo, Huntington, Regions among biggest winners of CCAR
Goldman Sachs analyst Richard Ramsden said the Fed's CCAR results came in largely better than expected, calling Wells Fargo (WFC), Huntington Bancshares (HBAN), Regions Financial (RF), SunTrust (STI) and Fifth Third (FITB) the biggest relative winners in his view. He believes the market will be focused on banks' 25% dividend growth announcements and believes the CCAR results can be a catalyst for a relief rally.

Following the release of CCAR results for 2018, Oppenheimer analysts Chris Kotowski and Ben Chittenden told investors in a research note that they are "particularly pleased" with Citi's (C) $17.6B share buyback, up 13% from last year and above their $16.5B estimate, while the dividend increase to 45c was also 5c better than expected. The analysts noted that both Goldman (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) got "conditional passes" on their capital plans, as both banks "ran a bit afoul" of the supplementary leverage ratio limitation.

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.

PNC Financial EPS view cut at RBC Capital on reduced mortgage banking outlook
RBC Capital analyst Gerard Cassidy lowered his PNC Financial FY18 EPS view to $10.51 from $10.60 and FY19 view to $11.32 from $11.46 after the recent commentary by the management that its Q2 mortgage banking revenues are tracking to be 12% lower than in Q1. The analyst keeps his Top Pick rating and $170 price target however, saying the bank is well positioned for higher interest rates that would expand its net interest income and also has a high 42% of the total component for its non-interest income. Cassidy adds that the regulatory environment benefits could also exceed his expectations.

PNC Financial price target raised to $170 from $145 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Gerard Cassidy raised his price target to $170 after the bank's above-consensus Q4 earnings driven by "stronger noninterest income and a lower loan loss provision". The analyst also noted a 0.9% increase in PNC's average loan and the expected positive impact from lower U.S. corporate tax rates. Cassidy keeps his Top Pick rating on PNC, forecasting continued strong results in 2018-2019, assuming 2-3 interest rate increases in each year.
