Judge dismisses bond rigging suit against large banks, Reuters reports

A U.S. judge has rejected an antitrust lawsuit by investors claiming that nine large banks rigged the roughly $9T government agency bond market from 2005 to 2015, Reuters reports. In a ruling made public on Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos in Manhattan determined that the investors failed to show they were harmed by conducting any specific transactions in U.S. dollar-denominated supranational, sub-sovereign, and agency bonds that were tainted by the alleged collusion, the report says. Investors led by the Iron Workers Pension Plan of Western Pennsylvania and the Sheet Metal Workers Pension Plan of Northern California claimed that the big banks used chatrooms and other means to share pricing information and coordinate trading to increase profit, infecting "each and every" transaction, the report says. Defendants in the case included Barclays (BCS), BNP Paribas (BNPQY), Citigroup (C), Credit Agricole (CRARY), Credit Suisse (CS), HSBC (HSBC), Nomura Holdings (NMR), Royal Bank of Canada (RY), and Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD), the report notes.

Citi to benefit from potential U.S.-Mexico trade deal, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo analyst Mike Mayo believes Citi could gain more than other large U.S. banks from a U.S.-Mexico trade deal given its ownership of the second largest bank in Mexico, Citibanamex. In his view, Citi's stock had been hurt on perceptions of the U.S. relationship with Mexico. At a minimum, any new trade deal could reflect the absence of a negative and, on the upside, new potential growth opportunities, he contends. Mayo reiterates an Outperform rating and $100 price target on the shares.

SunTrust analyst Andrew Jeffrey raised his price target on MasterCard to $240 and kept his Buy rating, saying the company is demonstrating expansion of global market share while posting a 14% Q2 volume growth. The analyst adds that while MasterCard has a higher valuation than PayPal (PYPL) and Visa (V) - a 10% relative EBITDA premium - it is justified and may even be too narrow given its superior growth sustainability and margin upside.

Wells Fargo's next few earnings reports likely to be 'choppy,' says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Chris Kotowski maintained a Perform rating on Wells Fargo (WFC) after recent meetings with CFO John Shrewsberry. In a research note to investors, Kotowski says there was nothing that shakes his view that the next few quarterly earnings reports are likely to still be "choppy," and notes that Shewsberry "readily acknowledged" that there was much work to be done to get the consent order lifted. At the same time, the analyst contends that shares are not trading at much of a discount versus other high performing banks like JPMorgan (JPM) and PNC (PNC) and says he favors companies that have lower but rising ROTCEs that are trading near TBV, especially Citi (C), CIT (CIT) and Goldman (GS).

The analyst also states that Citi's Q2 capital markets-related revenues were higher than expected, while the provisions for loan losses were lower than previously modeled. Fotheringham notes that Citi stock is "cheap again" following a 10% year-to-date decline, trading at only a 6.8-times two-year forward core earnings relative to its 9.5-times historical multiple.

BMO Capital analyst Sohrab Mohavedi raised his price target on Royal Bank of Canada to $110 after its Q2 earnings beat that was driven by higher-multiple Wealth operations. The analyst adds that the 500bps boost to operating leverage in the Canadian Banking segment contributed to 150bps increase in the overall leverage. Mohavedi also cites RBC's "good" credit conditions, improved Common Equity Tier 1 ratio, and raised dividend payout, but keeps his Market Perform rating, noting that its return to U.S. retail banking will "likely" dilute the overall ROE.
