TD Ameritrade CEO says 'had a very strong start to fiscal 2019'

"We had a very strong start to fiscal 2019 with record asset gathering in both our retail and institutional channels. After a year of transition, we achieved double-digit net new asset growth rates. Trading was also strong in the quarter with 14 days eclipsing 1 million trades, and mobile trading reaching new highs, averaging 240,000 mobile trades per day - up more than 50 percent from last year. Investor sentiment shifted in the quarter as anxiety and macroeconomic uncertainty started moving the markets, underscoring the importance of our client-centric value proposition. Times like these are when our clients need us most, and when they're most likely to turn to our award-winning investor education. It's little surprise then that the number of clients accessing our education increased by more than 60 percent from last year. We're focused on building a best-in-class client experience and driving a concentrated effort to further increase our operational agility and efficiency while delivering against our financial targets," said Tim Hockey, TD Ameritrade president and CEO.

Overweight
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.

Neutral
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.
