Citizens Financial stock worth buying, Barron's says

Citizens Financial (CFG) has one of the hottest lending niches in the world and it is the exclusive financing partner for iPhones bought directly from Apple (AAPL), Lawrence Strauss writes in this week's edition of Barron's. Initiatives like that are helping the bank post steady growth in its total book of loans at a time when many rivals are struggling for any growth at all, the report notes. But the market has not given Citizens Financial any credit for strong loan growth and improving returns, Strauss contends. Reference Link

Outperform
Citizens Financial price target lowered to $52 from $56 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Lana Chan lowered her price target on Citizens Financial to $52, saying that despite the Q1 earnings beat, the underlying trends were mixed with weak loan growth and weak fees along with a lower loan loss provision and better net interest margins. Chan keeps her Outperform rating on Citizens Financial, maintaining her positive outlook toward improvement in "below-peer profitability metrics through balance sheet optimization, improved fee income productivity, and higher capital returns".

Citizens Financial upgraded to Outperform at Baird
As reported previously, Baird analyst David George upgraded Citizens Financial to Outperform from Neutral. The analyst cited yesterday's weakness as a buying opportunity as the Italian bond and U.S. Treasury yields weighed on the banks. He likes the improving operating leverage, capital return, and discounted valuation of Citizens and maintained his $46 price target on the shares.

Goldman says rate hikes halfway through, upgrades M&T Bank to Buy
Goldman Sachs analyst Ryan Nash says his firm's economist is calling for six more rate hikes, two in the second half of 2018 and four more through the end of 2020. With six rate hikes in the books, Goldman believes we are half way through the rate rising cycle, Nash tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes some banks will see upside to revenue growth from rates moving higher. Comerica (CMA), Regions Financial (RF), SunTrust (STI), Citizens Financial (CFG) and KeyCorp (KEY) remain top picks for Nash. He also upgraded M&T Bank (MTB) to Buy from Neutral with 15% upside to his $196 price target. The analyst believes M&T will outperform as the benefits of higher rates exceed market expectations.

Morgan Stanley says China a near-term headwind for Apple's App Store growth
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty noted that data from Sensor Tower imply App Store net revenue recognized by Apple of $3.6B in the September quarter, which would be a quarterly high but below her forecast of $3.8B. Assuming her other estimates for Services are correct, this would imply September quarter Services revenue of $9.8B, which Huberty notes would be below her current $10.0B estimate and below the current consensus of $10.1B. She said a pause in new gaming approvals in China, coupled with fear of economic slowdown there, present a near-term headwind for App Store growth, but she sees limited downside to near-term Apple estimates and remains bullish on Services growth over the longer-term. Huberty keeps an Overweight rating and $247 price target on Apple shares.

Wedbush starts Apple with Outperform rating and $310 price target
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives last night initiated coverage of Apple with an Outperform rating and $310 price target. The analyst added the shares to his firm's Best Ideas List. He believes pent-up demand will upside to 2019 iPhone shipment estimates. An analysis shows that 350M iPhones are in the "window of opportunity" to upgrade over the next 12 to 18 months, Ives tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst believes the features and pricing for the new iPhones help put Chinese consumers "front and center."
