LendingClub downgraded as FTC probe seen detering investors at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette downgraded LendingClub to Equal Weight from Overweight as he thinks the previously disclosed FTC investigation into the company's lending practices will be a drag on new investor interest and involvement in the stock until it is resolved. While its fundamentals are undervalued, there is also execution risk, added Faucette, who lowered his price target on LendingClub shares to $5 from $6.
