SEC says Merrill Lynch to pay $8.9M to settle charges of undisclosed conflict

The Securities and Exchange Commission announced that Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith has agreed to pay approximately $8.9M to settle charges that it failed to disclose a conflict of interest arising out of its own business interests in deciding whether to continue to offer clients products managed by an outside third-party advisory firm. Without admitting or denying the findings, Merrill consented to the SEC's order, which finds that the firm was negligent in violating the antifraud and policies and procedures provisions of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Merrill agreed to pay more than $4M in disgorgement, $806,981 in prejudgment interest, and a more than $4M penalty, and to be censured and to cease and desist from further violations.

Bank of America pullback provides a buying opportunity, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham says that the recent near-10% pullback in the Bank of America stock price provides investors with a buying opportunity. The analyst contends that the bank's stock trades much more closely in line with short term interest rates rather than the 10-year and believes that its net interest margins will prove to be "insensitive" to lower yields on the benchmark as well as higher LIBOR-OIS spreads. Fotheringham keeps his $34 price target and Market Perform rating on Bank of America, adding that its current two-year-forward P/E valuation multiple is close to its long-term historical average.

Bank of America is the best of the 'big four' U.S. banks, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham kept his Market Perform rating and $34 price target on Bank of America (BAC) after its in-line Q1 earnings but raised his FY18 EPS view to $2.62 from $2.59 and FY19 view to $3.18 from $3.12. Fotheringham says than in contrast, he lowered earnings forecasts for JPMorgan (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC), and Citigroup (C) because of higher costs and lower revenues, but Bank of America's better than expected net interest income rise justifies his view of the bank as the "best of the bunch". The analyst also notes the bank's more favorable valuation trading at a below-average two-year-forward P/E multiple despite his forecast of double the core earnings growth rate of Bank of America's peers.

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.
