Dealreporter comments on E-Trade speculation after TD Ameritrade report

After TD Ameritrade (AMTD) CEO Tim Hockey was asked on the company's earnings call if the company could get more aggressive as a consolidator, with an analyst referencing "another property potentially in the market at some point," Dealreporter said that unnamed property was most likely E-Trade Financial (ETFC), which has seen takeover speculation surrounding it "for years." An upcoming board nomination window could offers an activist the opportunity to "make noise" at E-Trade if its strategy update is considered underwhelming, Dealreporter added, according to contacts.

Deutsche says Ameritrade, E-Trade merger 'becoming more compelling'
Deutsche Bank analyst Brian Bedell continues to see a merger between TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and E-Trade (ETFC) as making strategic and financial sense. With TD Ameritrade's integration of recently acquired Scottrade progressing better than expectations, a merger scenario with E-Trade is "becoming more compelling," Bedell tells investors in a research note. He updated his merger scenario model, raising his hypothetical merger scenario value of E-Trade from TD Ameritrade's perspective to $77 from $72, nearly a 30% premium to the current share price. Bedell raised his price target for TD Ameritrade to $77 from $72 and for E-Trade to $72 from $70. He keeps Buy ratings on both stocks.

E-Trade's softer growth may imply higher chance of takeout, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Craig Siegenthaler reiterated an Outperform rating on E-Trade (ETFC) and cut his price target to $77 from $79, telling investors in a research note that he forecasts modest upside to long-term EPS. The analyst says that softer core growth may imply a higher probability of a takeout, and thinks there is a ~50% probability that the board will look to sell the firm within six months. If E-Trade is put up for sale in October, the analyst estimates 30%+ upside given sizeable expense redundancies with likely acquirers TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and Charles Schwab (SCHW), but estimates ~10% near-term downside if the board decides to stay independent.

E-Trade price target raised to $73 from $67 at UBS
UBS analyst Brennan Hawkin raised his price target on E-Trade to $73 from $67 as he believes the stakes have been raised for a potential buyout. The analyst said the probability remains unclear but a deal with peers is probably most attractive, although he does not rule out a bank or broker. His increased price target reflects some takeout premium given the active bidding process, noted Hawkin, who reiterated his Buy rating on E-Trade shares.

Neutral
TD Ameritrade upgraded to Neutral on valuation at Credit Suisse
As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Craig Siegenthaler upgraded TD Ameritrade to Neutral as he believes its relative valuation no longer justifies an Underperform rating, and he estimates its organic growth will accelerate into 2019 given that Scottrade-related attrition peaked last quarter and is now improving. The analyst also raised his price target on the shares to $63 from $58.
