Bank of America stock worth betting on, Barron's says

Amid talk of a coming recession and expectations that the Federal Reserve is about to lower interest rates again - theoretically crimping financial stocks - it is important to remember that buying stuff that is wildly out of favor, such as Bank of America's stock, is historically a great way to make money, Steven Sears writes in this week's edition of Barron's.

Overweight
Bank of America still has room for more efficiency gains, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck said she disagrees with those who think Bank of America is done driving positive operating leverage in its consumer banking operations, pointing to the fact that active digital customers, who have a greater than 90% lower cost to service, are still just 59% of the total as support for her view. Graseck, who also said Bank of America has "done the hard work to offer a best-in-class reward program," maintains an Overweight rating and $31 price target on the bank's shares.

Neutral
Wells Fargo downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS
UBS analyst Saul Martinez downgraded Wells Fargo (WFC) to Neutral and lowered his price target on the stock to $49 from $51. The analyst attributes the rating change to his reduced estimates for earnings and lower net interest income along with the continued uncertainty and low visibility around the progress in the management's efficiency improvements. Martinez also cites Wells Fargo's relative valuation, with shares trading at 11.3-times expected FY20 earnings - a premium to JP Morgan's (JPM) 10.8-times, Bank of America's (BAC) 9.2-times, and Citigroup's (C) 7.9-times.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Antero Resources (AR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Brian Singer saying the stock offers a less attractive relative valuation at 5.5-times his expected FY20 upstream pre-hedge EBITDA, which is largely in line with its other "gassy" peers. 2. Bank of America (BAC) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Keefe Bruyette with analyst Brian Kleinhanzl saying that following the Federal Reserve's recent rate cut, the trade war escalated, which is now expected to lower economic growth. 3. Conagra Brands (CAG) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Jason English saying consensus estimates for sales and earnings may be too high in the near term. 4. Aclaris Therapeutics (ACRS) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at JMP Securities with analyst Donald Ellis citing the company's announcement that it is reviewing strategic alternatives and laying off staff yesterday. 5. Entergy (ETR) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Market Perform
Bank of America downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Keefe Bruyette
Keefe Bruyette analyst Brian Kleinhanzl downgraded Bank of America to Market Perform from Outperform and lowered his price target for the shares to $29 from $36. The analyst says that following the Federal Reserve's recent rate cut, the trade war escalated, which is now expected to lower economic growth. As a result, the analyst forecasts further rate cuts from here, which he notes will pressure Bank of America's earnings. In a falling rate environment where the yield curve remains inverted, it will be difficult for shares to outperform, Kleinhanzl tells investors in a research note.
