Wells Fargo price target raised to $61 at BMO Capital after in-line Q2

BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham kept his Market Perform rating and nudged his price target on Wells Fargo (WFC) to $61 from $59 after the company's in-line Q2 "core" results which also showed higher than expected net interest margins and lower loss provisions. The analyst notes that after relative underperformance by the financials sector this year, he would recommend that investors buy "inexpensive stocks with near-term catalysts", including Santander (SC), OneMain (OMF), and Synchony (SYF).

Wells Fargo upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Keefe Bruyette
Keefe Bruyette analyst Brian Kleinhanzl upgraded Wells Fargo to Outperform and raised his price target for the shares to $63 from $57. The stock closed Friday down 67c to $55.36. Current share levels offer an attractive entry point for a "self-help stock" that can generate "material" earnings growth near-term, Kleinhanzl tells investors in a research note. The analyst saw enough in Wells Fargo's most recent quarter to get him more constructive. He raised his earnings estimates and sees additional upside if management can drive expenses toward the company's investor day simulation range of $50B-$51B in 2020. Kleinhanzl sees expense saves and capital returns driving shares of Wells Fargo higher.

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. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

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.

Santander Consumer pullback brings 'great opportunity,' says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Kevin Barker continues to view Santander Consumer USA Holdings (SC) as a top pick for 2018 despite Fiat-Chrysler's (FCAU) intention to create a finance captive. The recent weakness in the stock presents a "great opportunity" as the separation of the FiatChrysler business from the core Santander Consumer would be accretive to operating margins, Barker tells investors in a research note. He believes the company could recognize a gain in a potential buyout of Chrysler Capital. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on Santander Consumer with a $25 price target.

JPMorgan analyst Richard Shane downgraded Santander Consumer (SC) to Neutral with an unchanged price target of $20. The analyst believes higher oil prices represent an increasing risk for the U.S. consumer and thinks the stock's upside is limited following the recent outperformance. His top pick Consumer Finance is Synchrony Financial (SYF). Shane raised his price target for the shares to $41 from $40 and keeps an Overweight rating on the name.

Janney upgrades Ally Financial, Santander Consumer to Buy on CCAR results
As previously reported, Janney Montgomery Scott analyst John Rowan upgraded both Santander Consumer (SC) and Ally Financial (ALLY), each to Buy from Neutral, after the Federal Reserve released the results of its Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review, or CCAR, tests and did not object to the capital plans for either. The capital actions approved for Santander Consumer do not alleviate its excess capital, but they are "significant," Rowan tells investor. Meanwhile, Ally's share repurchase plan is 32% higher than last year, noted Rowan, who raised his EPS estimates for both companies. He has a $36 fair value estimate on Ally shares and a $24 fair value estimate for Santander Consumer.

Stephens says Walmart move to Capital One cards would be opportunity for TSYS
After Bloomberg reported yesterday that Walmart (WMT) is considering moving its private-label and or co-brand card portfolios to Capital One (COF) from incumbent Synchrony (SYF), Stephens analyst Brett Huff called the potential switch an possible opportunity for TSYS (TSS), which he notes is the card issuer processor for Capital One. He estimates this move, if it happens, could represent about a $15M revenue opportunity for TSYS. Huff keeps an Overweight rating and $100 price target on TSYS shares.

Susquehanna says Walmart card flip could be loss for First Data, win for TSYS
After Bloomberg reported yesterday that Capital One (COF) is bidding to issue Walmart's (WMT) private-label card and replace incumbent Synchrony (SYF), Susquehanna analyst James Friedman noted that TSYS (TSS) is used by Capitol One for its issuer processing, while First Data (FDC) processes for Synchrony. If TSYS were to win the issuer processing business of the Walmart cards via a successful Capital One bid, Friedman estimates it could represent revenue upside of $11M-$15M. The firm has Positive ratings on First Data, Synchrony and TSYS.

Synchrony 'unlikely' to lose Walmart contract, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Moshe Orenbuch said he believes Synchrony Financial (SYF) is likely to retain its credit card contract with Walmart (WMT) following a Bloomberg report that said Capital One (COF) is bidding for the portfolio. Orenbuch says this is "not an ideal partnership" for Capital One, because while it has been a long-time player in the nonprime card business, he feels it is "less likely" that it would be comfortable acquiring a large portfolio with potential significant nonprime component such as the Walmart portfolio, particularly when it did not underwrite the loans. Orenbuch says that if Synchrony does retain the contract, which is expected to expire in 2019, the company will most likely have to cede more economics to Walmart in terms of profit sharing.

Synchrony may have 'upper hand' in Walmart credit card bidding, says BTIG
BTIG analyst Mark Palmer is keeping his Buy rating and $44 price target on Synchrony (SYF), noting the 5.3% decline in its stock price after media reports that Walmart (WMT) is considering shifting its credit card program to Capital One (COF). The analyst believes that Synchrony may still have the upper hand over Capital One because Walmart's objective to build out its digital wallet and mobile payment capabilities is better served by Synchrony's "understated solid experience helping retailers to develop their mobile capabilities" given its recent acquisition of GPShopper, which assists retailers in developing mobile apps. Palmer adds that given the risks and complexity around the transfer of a store-card program, Walmart should require a "very significant advantage", and it is more likely that it will renew its Synchony agreement at "somewhat less favorable terms for the issuer".
