4.5K Dec 44 - 46 put spreads trade 45c as BB&T shares drop 1.6% to $46.88

4.5K Dec 44 - 46 put spreads trade 45c as BB&T shares drop 1.6% to $46.88. The vertical likely rolls a matching block of Dec 46 puts opened for 39c on 12/4, with shares near $48.50. The investor covers the puts at 80c to monetize the profit today and opens Dec 44 puts for 35c. The adjustment expresses concerns about further short-term losses in shares, as the Dec 44 puts are struck 6% below spot and expiring in 11 days.

PNC Financial downgraded to Market Perform at BMO Capital on valuation
As reported earlier, BMO Capital analyst Lana Chan downgraded PNC Financial (PNC) to Market Perform from Outperform and kept her $139 price target. The analyst says that the stock is approaching her prior $139 per share forecast and sees the company as challenged in gaining market share through expansion given the competition from other Universal banks. Chan adds that PNC Financial "already trades at a slight premium to the Regional P/E median", giving preference to more attractively valued BB&T (BBT) and Comerica (CMA).

Morgan Stanley sees BB&T, AmEx as possible winners if Fed changes bank rules
Noting that the Federal Reserve will release a memo detailing proposed changes to bank capital rules to the public around 10 am today and is scheduled to vote on this proposal in a meeting starting at 10:30 am, Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck said BB&T (BBT) could be the biggest beneficiary with a 5% EPS increase if it is ruled that banks with more than $250B in assets that are not Global Systemically Important Banks should have more tailored regulation. Other potential beneficiaries of possible rule changes include American Express (AXP), Capital One (COF), Northern Trust (NTRS), PNC Financial (PNC) and U.S. Bancorp (USB), Graseck added.

Jefferies identifies six potential takeover targets for BB&T
Following BB&T's (BBT) recent bank comments regarding acquisitions and clarifications of its parameters, Jefferies analyst Ken Usdin identified six regional banks as potential takeover targets: BancorpSouth (BXS), First Horizon (FHN), Hancock Whitney (HWC), Iberiabank (IBKC), Pinnacle Financial (PNFP) and United Bankshares (UBSI). First Horizon and Iberiabank "look the best-fitting solely from a number perspective," Usdin tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes BB&T could pay "sizable control premiums" for both, namely 28% Iberiabank and 15% for First Horizon, while achieving earnings accretion in year one.
