Outperform
Fifth Third upgraded to Outperform on valuation at Raymond James
As previously reported, Raymond James upgraded Fifth Third to Outperform from Market Perform and established a $30 price target. Analyst David Long believes Fifth Third fundamentals are attractive given expanding NIM, a loan-to-deposit ratio below 90%, buybacks, and a valuation at one of the lowest core deposit premiums under coverage.

Fifth Third upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Terry McEvoy upgraded Fifth Third Bancorp to Overweight with a $27 price target. The analyst believes the company is positioned to outperform in 2019. With improving returns on assets, Fifth Third can close its price-to-earnings multiple gap over the next 12 months, McEvoy tells investors in a research note. Further, he believes the company recently reaffirming its 2019 outlook and offering a "firm message" on future expenses was a "step in the right direction."

First Midwest downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Terry McEvoy downgraded First Midwest (FMBI) to Equal Weight from Overweight, stating that he feels that First Midwest has benefited from speculation around the potential for a future sale since the announcement of MB Financial's (MBFI) sale to a large regional bank. While First Midwest still stands to benefit from MB-related market disruption, the impacts won't be felt until 2019 and First Midwest "isn't selling anytime soon," McEvoy tells investors. He maintains his $28 price target on First Midwest shares.

Buy
Fifth Third initiated with a Buy at Argus
Argus analyst Stephen Biggar initiated Fifth Third (FITB) with a Buy rating and a price target of $36, citing its strong fee-based income in asset management, sound credit quality, and above-peer efficiency ratio. The analyst further notes that while the bank's credit loan growth has been constrained, its net interest margins rose 8bps in the most recent quarter amid the rising interest rate environment, and he expects that trend to produce a high single-digit growth in net interest income this year. Biggar points to Fifth Third's recent acquisition announcement of MB Financial (MBFI) as a further catalyst, expanding its position with "significant retail and commercial assets in the Chicago" while boosting its earnings by 7% in the second year after the closing.

Outperform
Fifth Third upgraded to Outperform on valuation at Wedbush
As previously reported, Wedbush analyst Peter Winter upgraded Fifth Third (FITB) to Outperform from Neutral following meetings with management. The analyst notes that the stock has been under pressure following the announcement to acquire MB Financial (MBFI) on May 21. However, he believes the news is more than reflected in the valuation. Furthermore, Winter thinks the company can execute on its planned merger with MB Financial, realize the Project North Star targets and new $100M in expense savings, and show improvement toward reaching its FY 2020 goals of ROA, ROTCE and an efficiency in the low 50's. The analyst also raised his price target on Fifth Third's stock to $34 from $31.
