Moody's price target lowered to $145 from $171 at Cantor Fitzgerald
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Joseph Foresi lowered his price target for Moody's to $145 saying he remains cautious about the "volatile" issuance market. Moody's reported "poor" Q3 results due to the decline in U.S. corporate debt issuance in the period, Foresi tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps a Neutral rating on the shares.

Overweight
Rating Agencies 'more appealing' on recent pullback, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Appert views the valuations of the Rating Agencies as "more appealing" following the recent selloff. The combination of pricing power, attractive unit volume growth, margin leverage and robust free cash flow can drive sustainable low-to-mid-teens EPS growth for both S&P Global (SPGI) and Moody's (MCO), Appert tells investors in a research note. He admits, however, that cyclical weakness in issuance could keep the stocks in a near-term trading range. The analyst, who believes the "secular growth story remains appealing," has an Overweight rating on S&P Global and Neutral rating on Moody's.

Goldman Sachs starts S&P Global at Buy, Moody's at Neutral
As previously reported, Goldman Sachs analyst George Tong started S&P Global (SPGI) with a Buy rating and $225 price target. Tong also started Moody's (MCO) with a Neutral rating and $165 price target. He sees S&P Global and Moody's each having wide and sustainable competitive moats, given their scale and roles as gatekeepers to the debt capital markets, but favors S&P for its diversified business and sustained market share gains at CapIQ. Moody's has greater exposure to debt issuance volume trends, which he believes could introduce near-term volatility, Tong told investors in his initiation note.

Morgan Stanley says 13F a 'clear signal' of value Buffett sees in financials
Following the release last night of 13F filings detailing the holdings of large investors, including Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A), Morgan Stanley analyst Kai Pan noted that the filing from Warren Buffett's Berkshire revealed increased stakes in Bank of America (BAC), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Goldman Sachs (GS) along with new stakes in JPMorgan (JPM), PNC Financial (PNC) and Travelers (TRV). The analyst sees these investments, along with the fact that Berkshire's s financial holdings stood at 46% of its overall $203B equity portfolio as of quarter end, as a "clear signal" of the value that Buffett sees in financials, Pan tells investors. He adds that he views Buffett's new stake in Oracle (ORCL) as another "notable" new purchase.

Goldman Sachs downgraded to Equal Weight on 1MDB probe risks at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck downgraded Goldman Sachs to Equal Weight from Overweight, citing the risks and uncertainties related to the bank being investigated for its role in raising funds for 1MDB. It is currently unclear how long the issue will take to resolve, what the fines and penalties could be and what costs Goldman will incur, said Graseck, who doesn't see the stock's multiple expanding significantly until the 1MDB issue is resolved. She lowered her price target on Goldman Sachs shares to $226 from $291.
