Comerica could be viewed as acquisition target, says Stephens

Stephens analyst Terry McEvoy raised his capital payout forecast for Comerica (CMA) for the second half of this year and for 2019 as he expects the company will announce an increase in the dividend and larger buyback plan after its board meets on July 24. Additionally, McEvoy thinks Comerica could be viewed as an takeover target once BB&T (BBT) and U.S. Bancorp (USB) are in a position to acquire banks. Stating that he likes both its fundamental and strategic outlook, McEvoy keeps an Overweight rating and $105 price target on Comerica shares.

Buy
Comerica upgraded to Buy on valuation at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill analyst Erika Najarian upgraded Comerica to Buy from Neutral and raised her price target on the stock to $108 from $104. After revising her estimates higher yet again, the analyst notes that Comerica now trades at parity on earnings to regional banks that are participant to CCAR. No longer subject to annual stress testing or liquidity restrictions, Comerica now has significant balance sheet flexibility to return capital to shareholders and optimize its net interest margin, further extending its EPS upgrade cycle, Najarian contends. Furthermore, the analyst points out that as Comerica is no longer subject to the regulatory scrutiny associated with "domestic SIFIs," its valuation should accordingly reflect this.

Evercore ISI analyst John Pancari upgraded Comerica to Outperform from In Line and increased his price target to $107 from $97 following the Q2 report. Pancari expects earnings growth to outpace peers while returns continue to strengthen, supported by a favorable positioning for higher short-term rates, ongoing efficiency improvement, and intact credit. Thee analyst expects a materially ramp in capital deployment with next week's capital announcement, which should help strengthen returns.

Prologis (PLD) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Michael Mueller saying he is shuffling his ratings in the REIT space following GGP's (GGP) takeout by Brookfield Property Partners (BPY). 4.

Roku (ROKU) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi with analyst Mark May citing valuation for the upgrade following the stock's recent underperformance, but admits the upcoming lock-up expiration could serve as a negative catalyst.

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.

Citi upgrades U.S. Bancorp, says opportune time to build positions
Citi analyst Keith Horowitz upgraded U.S. Bancorp to Buy from Neutral with an unchanged price target of $58. Now is an opportune time to build positions in the stock after three years of significant underperformance, Horowitz tells investors in a research note. He believes the drivers of the underperformance have largely played out and that U.S. Bancorp's efficiency ratio will improve from here. Further, the bank's "strong" credit quality profile can be a differentiator as the cycle gets into the latter innings, Horowitz contends. He says U.S. Bancorp is one of the best ways for investors looking to add exposure to the banks.
