Goldman Sachs CEO says regulatory issues constrain consolidation at high-end

Goldman Sachs (GS) CEO David Solomon said he believes M&A activity broadly "will continue apace," but at the high-end of the market cap spectrum banks will face regulatory issues that will constrain consolidation. Asked about a report that Goldman Sachs had considered the acquisition of a boutique investment bank catering to midsize corporations, including William Blair and PNC Financial's (PNC) Harris Williams & Co, Solomon said he was "unaware" of those conversations, if they occurred.

Goldman Sachs price target lowered to $262 from $276 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham lowered his price target on Goldman Sachs to $262 and kept his Market Perform rating after its Q4 results, saying that while it beat on revenues, its non-comp expenses are seen rising. The analyst adds that he is "gratified" by the "value-restoring" rebound in bank stocks after the December rout and anticipates "relatively benign system-wide fundamental credit quality over the next two years." Fotheringham also lowers his FY19 EPS view by 1% to $24.85 to reflect his outlook for higher expenses, stating that other large -cap banks, specialty lenders, and financial technology stocks offer investors a "greater opportunity".

Bank stocks still 'resoundingly cheap,' says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Chris Kotowski told investors in a research note that one reason he is so "incessantly bullish" on bank stocks is that investors "still so incessantly hate them." The stocks still remain resoundingly cheap at a 63% relative P/E multiple even though bank balance sheets are arguably the best they have ever been, and the business models decidedly less capital-intensive, he contends. He continues to recommend Outperform-rated Bank of America (BAC), CIT (CIT), Citi (C), Goldman (GS), Jefferies (JEF), Morgan Stanley (MS) and U.S. Bancorp (USB).

Sell
Societe Generale downgrades Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley to Sell
As previously reported, Societe Generale analyst Andrew Lim downgraded Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS), both to Sell from Hold, citing his view that the credit cycle deterioration "has already been set in motion" and that it will pay to be defensive for the rest of 2019. Goldman and Morgan are much more exposed to pressure on market-sensitive revenues as purer investment banks, Lim tells investors. He does not have any Buy ratings on big U.S. banks, but continues to favor holding positions in Bank of America (BAC) and JP Morgan (JPM), which Lim views as the most defensive large cap U.S. banks, he tells investors.

Top Pick
PNC Financial price target lowered to $150 from $155 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Gerard Cassidy lowered his price target on PNC Financial to $150, saying its Q4 results were weaker than expected as fee based revenues tracked below expectations and credit costs were "elevated". The analyst keeps his Top Pick rating on the shares however, anticipating PNC Financial to deliver average loan growth of 3%-4% this year with positive operating leverage. Cassidy adds that the bank is "well positioned for rising interest rates" with its balance sheet more tethered to the short end of the Treasury yield curve, along with continued focus on reducing operating expenses and high levels of recurring revenues.

Deutsche gets more selective on banks, downgrades BB&T and PNC
Deutsche Bank analyst Matt O'Connor downgraded both BB&T (BBT) and PNC Financial (PNC) to Hold from Buy. The analyst lowered his price target for BB&T to $53 from $58 and for PNC to $135 from $161. Bank stocks have rallied 20% off the December 24 lows, outperforming the S&P 500 Index by 800 basis points, O'Connor tells investors in a research note. The analyst still sees upside to banks overall, but has become more selective.

Odeon's Bove says buy SunTrust, Midwest banks after deal announcement
Odeon analyst Dick Bove recommends investors buy shares of SunTrust (STI) following the company's announcement of an agreement to merge with BB&T (BBT), stating that the deal is expected to be accretive by 2021, but likely to be dilutive before this time. He also thinks investors should consider buying a group of Midwestern banks, as the deal puts "significant pressure" on those banks to merge. Banks such as Fifth Third (FITB) and KeyCorp (KEY) "need to join forces," while PNC (PNC) and U.S. Bancorp (USB) "need to buy more scale," Bove stated in his research note.
