U.S. Bancorp says payment services revenue growth due to seasonally higher sales

Says average total loan growth was driven by growth in total commercial loans, residential mortgages and seasonal growth in credit card balances. Says average total savings deposits increased 3.8% linked quarter, primarily driven by growth within wealth management and investment services. Says net interest margin declined, primarily due to the inversion of the yield curve in Q2, seasonally lower credit card revolving rates and higher cash balances, partially offset by higher securities yields and interest recoveries. Comments taken from Q2 earnings presentation slides.

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.

Jefferies downgrades Financials to Underweight on 'shocking' Fed meeting
Jefferies analyst Steven DeSanctis is "very surprised" by last week's Federal Reserve's decision taking rate hikes completely off table in 2019. The "shocking" Fed meeting means lower rates for longer, which is not good for Financials, DeSanctis tells investors in a research note. A "lack of catalysts and weaker earnings growth" going forward for the entire sector, not just banks, means an Underweight rating on the space makes sense, says the analyst. As such, he downgraded his rating on the Financial sector to Underweight from Market Weight. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC).

M&T Bank total capital return plan below forecast, says Wedbush
Even though banks between $100B-$250B in assets are not subject to the Fed's formal stress test again until 2020, all of the banks in that asset range that Wedbush analyst David Chiaverini covers released capital plans for the next four quarters, he noted. All of the regional banks he covers plans for less in total capital returns via share buyback and dividends under their new capital plans than in their 2018 capital plans, except for an increase at Citizens Financial (CFG) and and no change at U.S. Bancorp (USB), the analyst pointed out. M&T Bank's (MTB) total capital plan of $1.9B was below last cycle and "well below" his forecast of $2.62B, Chiaverini added.
