Charles Schwab target raised to $57 ahead of winter update at Morgan Stanley

Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys said he has increased conviction in Charles Schwab (SCHW) shares after the company saw stronger organic deposit growth and broadly strong underlying growth metrics in Q4. He expects Charles Schwab to provide2019 guidance at the company's upcoming Winter Update on February 5 that should meet consensus expectations, but he also expects Schwab to beat those expectations over the course of 2019, as they havve done in prior years. He also expects Charles Schwab to give "more rational" pricing commentary this late in the cycle, which should support the stock and peers TD Ameritrade (AMTD) and E-Trade (ETFC), Cyprys tells investors. He raised his price target on Charles Schwab shares to $57 from $55 ahead of the update call and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.

Morgan Stanley says buy TD Ameritrade ahead of earnings, negative on Virtu
Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Cyprys lowered his Q4 EPS estimates by 11% for the Asset Manager and Broker group given that the S&P 500 fell nearly 14% in the quarter, upending what had been a positive year for equity markets up until that point. For 2019, he favors the discount brokers - TD Ameritrade (AMTD), E-Trade (ETFC) and Charles Schwab (SCHW) - given their more defensive earnings profiles. Ahead of the Q4 earnings season he sees TD Ameritrade as "compelling" given its greater skew to trading revenues among the eBrokers, greater derivative mix and rising client cash levels, Cyprys tells investors. He also views concerns around commission price cuts as overdone as doe not expect Charles Schwab to cut, the analyst added. Ahead of Q4 reporting, Cyprys is negative on Virtu Financial (VIRT), as he thinks expectations are too high and notes the stock has recently outperformed.

TD Ameritrade initiated with a Neutral at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Will Nance initiated coverage of the Online Brokers with an Attractive coverage view, stating that for the group on the whole he believes cyclical factors will drive fundamentals and valuation in the near term despite organic growth and pricing concerns. He started TD Ameritrade with a Neutral rating and $60 price target, stating that his estimates are roughly in-line with consensus. The bull thesis, that TD Ameritrade benefits the most in the group from more volatile markets and should see a multi-year increase in spread-based income, is largely reflected in consensus expectations, Nance believes.

Charles Schwab downgraded to Neutral with $51 price target at UBS
UBS analyst Brennan Hawken downgraded Charles Schwab (SCHW) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $51 from $57. The analyst coupled the downgrade with an upgrade of TD Ameritrade (AMTD) to Buy from Neutral. While Schwab's business is growing more rapidly than traditional asset managers, there also seems to be "multiple compression on market sensitive revenues given risks to that outlook," Hawken tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst believes the rate hiking cycle is closer to the end than the beginning, suggesting risk of further compression for Schwab relative to peers.
