BB&T downgraded to Market Perform on near-term noise at Raymond James

As previously reported, Raymond James analyst David Lon downgraded BB&T (BBT) to Market Perform from Outperform and reducing his EPS estimates. The analyst cited the nearer-term noise surrounding its merger with SunTrust (STI) and his view that BB&T shares are unlikely to outperform until there is greater clarity on when the deal will actually close and its ability to retain key talent with the combined company's footprint. Moreover, larger acquirer stock prices generally haven't reacted favorably over the past few years, he contends.

Morgan Stanley downgrades SunTrust to Equal Weight as focus shifts to execution
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck downgraded SunTrust (STI) to Equal Weight from Overweight as she believes it to be prudent to "take some chips off the table" following the year-to-date outperformance driven by news of its merger of equals with BB&T (BBT). The focus of investors will shift from the merger to execution and while she thinks the $1.6B in cost savings seem attainable at 12% of the combined company's expenses, she also expects it will take two years before net expense savings convincingly accelerate, she tells investors. She lowered her price target on SunTrust shares to $73 from $80 and lowered her price target on BB&T shares to $56 from $62.
