Stephens taking 'more balanced view,' downgrades eight bank stocks
Stephens' bank research team, including analysts Terry McEvoy, Matt Olney, Tyler Stafford and Austin Nicholas, noted that the bank sector has seen strong performance year-to-date following stable Q4 credit trends, slowing deposit beta commentary and two well-received mergers of equals and they feel the risk/reward in the space is now less attractive. Given this preference for a more balanced view, the team downgraded eight stocks in the sector, including BankUnited (BKU), BancorpSouth (BXS), BB&T (BBT), CBTX (CBTX), Comerica (CMA), Eagle Bancorp (EGBN), First Financial Bancorp (FFBC) and LegacyTexas Financial (LTXB), all to Equal Weight from Overweight. In terms of price targets, the target for BancorpSouth was trimmed to $32 from $33, BB&T was lowered to $55 from $56, BankUnited was maintained at $38, CBTX was decreased to $35 from $36, Comerica was raised to $90 from $88, Eagle was held at $60, First Financial's target is $30 and LegacyTexas was maintained at $45.

First Financial Bancorp upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Nathan Race upgraded First Financial Bancorp to Overweight from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $29 from $28. The shares are "overly discounted" at current levels and discussions with management indicate improved visibility on near-term core net interest margin and loan growth trends, Race tells investors in a research note. First Financial's credit metrics should be "much more benign" following an elevated one-off franchise finance charge-off in Q1, adds the analyst.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Genomic Health (GHDX) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk stating management appears "comfortable" with the pace of the current business ahead of the German reimbursement decision. 2. Bright Horizons (BFAM) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst George Tong sayinh favorable secular trends, a "strong" pipeline of new center openings, enrollment growth and tuition increases create a "robust" revenue growth outlook. 3. CommScope (COMM) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Mark Delaney stating the company can expand margins from a combination of lower input costs as DRAM pricing and copper pricing have both fallen. 4. First Financial Bancorp (FFBC) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Nathan Race saying shares are "overly discounted" at current levels and discussions with management indicate improved visibility on near-term core net interest margin and loan growth trends. 5. AES Corp. (AES) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith noting a "constructive" meeting with management and saying he sees upside to renewable development opportunities and expects opportunities in Vietnam and the Atlantic Basin to drive growth.
