Citi gets more defensive on Brokers & Asset Managers, downgrades five
Citi analyst Citi analyst William Katz is taking a more defense stance on the traditional Brokers & Asset Managers to reflect what he sees as "weak" fundamentals and "still elevated" consensus estimates. The analyst reduced his target multiples across the group and downgraded Affiliated Managers (AMG) and Brightsphere Investment Group (BSIG) to Neutral from Buy as well as Artisan Partners (APAM), Waddell & Reed (WDR) and Franklin Resources (BEN) to Sell from Neutral. Katz calls Och-Ziff Capital (OZM) and LPL Financial (LPLA) his top ideas and also opened a "30 Day Positive Catalyst Watch" for Carlyle Group (CG) and Legg Mason (LM). The analyst recommends pair trades of Overweight AllianceBernstein (AB), underweight Artisan Partners (APAM), and overweight BlackRock (BLK), underweight T. Rowe Price (TROW).

Given the tailwinds, he does not view net adds of about 2,000 per year through 2024 as "overly heroic," making $1B in 2024 "look reasonable," Peterson tells investors.

Avalara to report 'solid' Q3 results, says BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Brad Sills keeps his Buy rating and $100 price target on Avalara, saying the company's Q3 results expected in early November should be "solid". The analyst is citing the feedback from a number of the company's accounting and ISV partners, which indicates continued adoption of its applications for sales tax compliance happening at "various adoption trigger events". Sills adds that if Avalara's net core customer adds and average selling price growth in Q3 will be consistent with those in Q2, the company's revenue should exceed his 33% growth forecast.

The analyst further notes that the company's credit trends were stable and fundamentals remain solid. Arfstrom keeps his Sector Perform rating, adding that the stock may be an attractive long-term holding for investors seeking a high quality core holding, but his near-term neutral view balances the positive outlook with a premium valuation.

Her model changes prompted Graseck to lower her Q3 EPS forecast by 1c to $2.05, which she noted is still slightly above consensus. Graseck has an Overweight rating and $142 price target on AmEx shares.

SunTrust loan growth acceleration encouraging, says Argus
Argus analyst Stephen Biggar kept his Buy rating and $81 price target on SunTrust (STI) after its Q2 results, saying that while the company missed consensus by a penny, its "recent acceleration in loan growth" has been encouraging as the management has also signaled that its merger with BB&T (BBT) remains on track to close later this year. The analyst notes that while SunTrust's net interest margins may compress on lower yield curve environment, the bank's merger synergies should yield above-peer-average return on equity, justifying a premium valuation on the stock.

BofA/Merrill sees Citi, Citizens BB&T risk/reward as 'compelling'
BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Erika Najarian said she does not believe bank stocks are pricing in a recession, though they are "bearing the brunt of cycle concerns." Bank stocks could be at a near-term bottom, said Najarian, who sees compelling risk/rewards for shares of Citi (C), Citizens Financial (CFG) and BB&T (BBT) even when taking into account theoretical fair value in a recession. Even in the case of a recession, banks have materially improved underwriting since the financial crisis and she estimates an average 46% EPS hit in a downturn but only a 5% hit in tangible book value versus consensus 2020 forecasts, Najarian tells investors.

Jefferies changes five bank ratings after looking into 2020, 2021
Jefferies analyst Ken Usdin upgraded BB&T (BBT), SunTrust Banks (STI) and Regions Financial (RF) to Buy from Hold from Hold while downgrading M&T Bank (MTB) and Zions Bancorp (ZION) to Hold from Buy. Looking to 2020 and 2021, banks face slowing earnings growth and "ongoing sentiment hurdles," Usdin tells investors in a research note. The analyst's base case assumes a stable economy, but he notes that "trade talk could tip it either way." Further, the 2020 election could weigh not only on valuation multiples, but also on earnings estimates based on the regulatory outlook, adds the analyst. He believes attractive dividend yields and a shift toward value stocks could help, but admits that earnings revisions are biased down with more rate cuts likely. Regions "has led the pack" in protecting its net interest margin for a tougher rates environment, while BB&T has less downside to estimates relative to peers and a faster earnings growth rate given benefits from the pending merger-of-equals with SunTrust, contends Usdin.

Despite being the leading provider of financial close accounting solutions in a $14B total addressable market, billings growth for Blackline has decelerated to the high-teens for the past three quarters, Merwin tells investors in a research note. This is below the 22% revenue growth that the Street currently has modeled for fiscal 2020, adds the analyst. Without a clear catalyst for a reacceleration in billings growth, Merwin thinks consensus revenue growth for next year may be difficult to achieve. Further, he believes Blackline's core product, a seat-based model, limits the ability for upsell.

KKR, Victory Capital, Apollo Global top BMO Capital picks among asset managers
BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham initiated 11 U.S. asset managers, selecting KKR (KKR), Victory Capital (VCTR), and Apollo Global (APO) as his "top picks" with Outperform ratings and respective price targets of $40, $33, and $52 per share. The analyst believes that investors are undervaluing KKR's performance fees reliability and also have yet to appropriately value its "meaningful" excess capital. Instead, Fotheringham believes that investors are too worried about the risks of recession and KKR's relatively larger balance sheet. For Victory Global, the analyst believes that the market is overly concerned with its balance sheet leverage and believes that the company's organic growth will outperform expectations because of its exposure to to higher-growth segments like ETF products and solutions-seeking investors. For Apollo Global, Fotheringham notes that investors are undervaluing its accelerating Fee Related Earnings growth and expects the stock to benefit from technical support related to "improved liquidity, broadened shareholder engagement, and index inclusions." As part of his research note, the analyst also started the following at Market Perform: Ares Management (ARES) with price target $31, Invesco (IVZ) with price target $18, Blackrock (BLK) with price target $44, AssetMark (AMK) with price target $24, Blackstone (BX) with price target of $44, Carlyle Group (CG) with price target of $23, and T. Rowe Price (TROW) with price target of $101. Fotheringham also initiated Franklin Resources (BEN) at Underperform with price target of $16, saying the market is overvaluing its management-fee related income amid continued outflows and magnified redemption risk as well as operating expense "inflexibility". The analyst warns that Franklin's U.S. and European retail channels are facing ongoing fee pressures and risk from active-to-passive rotation.

Morgan Stanley analyst Ken Zerbe said he continues to hear the "false narrative" that large-cap banks must be gaining market share due to their superior technology, but he insists they are not and that small and mid-cap banks have consistently gained deposit market share over the last five years. Individual large-cap banks that have had the biggest deposit share gains include Goldman Sachs (GS), Ally Financial (ALLY) and Synchrony Financial (SYF), while mid-cap banks that have delivered the biggest gains in share of total deposits include First Republic (FRC), KeyCorp (KEY) and Huntington (HBAN), Zerbe tells investors. Large-cap banks that have seen the largest declines in their respective individual shares of total deposits include JPMorgan (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC) and Citigroup (C), while deposit share losers among mid-cap banks include Comerica (CMA), Prosperity Bancshares (PB) and Zions (ZION), said Zerbe.

BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham lowered his price target on Wells Fargo (WFC) to $57 and kept his Market Perform rating after its Q3 results. The analyst cites the bank's lower than expected net interest income along with a miss on fees and a higher than anticipated operating costs. Fotheringham contends that before the new Wells Fargo CEO arrives and administers a strategic review, there are better investment opportunities in large cap banks that include Citi (C), Bank of America (BAC), Capital One (COF) and Morgan Stanley (MS).

DFAST results encourgaing for Wells Fargo, says UBS

He thinks Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS) and State Street (STT) look like they have room to reach his forecasted capital returns and also said lower stressed losses at Citi (C) and JPMorgan (JPM) could suggest that the current SCB proposal may not lead to materially higher minimum capital requirements, added Martinez. However, he thinks there could be some downside to his capital return estimates for Capital One (COF), which he notes have been above consensus.

For Federated, the analyst's upgrade reflects a more constructive money market outlook and less negative view of long-term flows.

This includes two interest rate cuts in 2019 and 2020. The analyst's terminal yield curve assumptions to Fed Funds is 1.75%. The lower rate assumptions led him to lower his normal return on tangible equity estimates ~100 basis points on average. Following these changes, Horowitz upgraded Morgan Stanley (MS) to Buy from Neutral), downgraded Comerica (CMA), Northern Trust (NTRS), and M&T Bank (MTB) to Sell from Neutral, and downgraded Wells Fargo (WFC), Citizens Financial (CFG), and Fifth Third (FITB) to Neutral from Buy.

Hard for Goldman, Morgan Stanley to justify E-Trade deal, says Keefe Bruyette
Keefe Bruyette analyst Brian Kleinhanzl looked into whether an acquisition of E-Trade (ETFC) would make sense for Goldman Sachs (GS) or Morgan Stanley (MS) after the electronic brokers reduced their commission rates. The analyst says he could make the strategic rationale for why a broker would buy an e-broker, namely cost savings and customer base expansion. However, ultimately a deal has to make sense financially as well, and it would be hard for Morgan or Goldman to justify on this basis, Kleinhanzl tells investors in a research note. In addition, with both brokers trading near tangible book value, shareholders would prefer buybacks versus an acquisition as a better use of shareholder capital at this point in the cycle, adds the analyst. As such a result, Kleinhanzl sees a deal for E-Trade as unlikely given the financial and capital impacts. He would be surprised if either broker aggressively pursued E-Trade as an acquisition.

As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analysts led by Anil Agarwal and Magdalena Stoklosa downgraded HSBC to Equal Weight from Overweight and cut the price target on the London-listed shares to 690p from 740p. A recent pickup in HIBOR rates should help Q2 NIMs expand meaningfully for Hong Kong banks and elevated HIBOR levels could also translate into strong NIMs in Q3, unless HIBOR retraces quickly, the team said. However, they assume two Fed rate cuts by end-2020 and think lower NIMs due to lower Fed rates, as well as the launch of virtual banks, will hurt profitability, Agarwal and Stoklosa told investors in a research note on the Hong Kong financial group. The HKMA has licensed eight virtual banks, and these, particularly the ones backed by Chinese technology players, "are likely to compete fiercely," the analysts added.

Slack overhang from Microsoft competition should dissipate, says William Blair
After hosting investor meetings with Slack Technologies (WORK) management, William Blair analyst Bhavan Suri has "increased confidence in the story."

Management views Slack as having a different value proposition than Teams, says the analyst. Although the Microsoft overhang may remain with the stock for the next couple of quarters, it should dissipate over time as the company continues to execute and showcases its ability to win customers that are also using Office 365 for other functions, Suri contends.

Canaccord analyst Joseph Vafi said Paypal's (PYPL) disclosure of its controlling stake in Chinese payment player GoPay has material strategic implications longer term. The analyst notes the deal allowed PayPal to beat both Visa (V) and Mastercard (MA) into the Chinese market and could be a conduit to drive meaningful cross-border payments volume allowing it to continue to sustain mid 20% payment volume for the next several years. Vafi reiterated his Buy rating and $118 price target on PayPal shares.

Morgan Stanley ups Wells target to $50 after CEO hiring, but stays on sidelines
Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck said the hiring of Charlie Scharf to become CEO at Wells Fargo is a positive that lifts "a big uncertainty" and she raised her price target on the bank's shares to $50 from $47 following the news. However, she remains on the sidelines until there is more clarity on when the Fed imposed asset cap and consent order can be lifted, estimating that it has added about $2B to the bank's expense base. She also wonders if Scharf will pursue further business rationalization, which could reset earnings expectations going forward. Graseck keeps an Equal Weight rating on Wells Fargo shares, though she sees a path to a potential $56 stock price over the longer-term once the consent order gets lifted.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. TSMC (TSM) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman Sachs with analyst Bruce Lu saying after a re-examination of industry capacity builds and order revisions, he thinks he's underestimating the positive impacts on TSMC arising from trade uncertainty. 2. Wells Fargo (WFC) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus with analyst Stephen Biggar citing the company's appointment of Charlie Scharf as its new CEO. 3. Cigna (CI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Matthew Borsch claiming that the current 8-times his expected forward earnings valuation multiple is "attractive" as the stock represents a "better hedge" against political and health policy uncertainty. 4. Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Seth Basham saying turning around declining retailers is a very difficult task, particularly amidst unfavorable secular trends and soft industry sales growth, but Bed Bath & Beyond has a "good chance of stabilization" in earnings over the next two years as its changes take hold. 5. Restaurant Brands (QSR) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Longbow with analyst Alton Stump saying after calls with U.S. Burger King franchisees, he believes same-store sales for Restaurant Brands' Burger King concept were up 4.5%-5.0% in Q3 ahead of his prior estimate of 2.0% growth and consensus at up 3.4%.

However, Wells' net interest margins will remain under pressure, sending its net interest income lower, while its costs are unlikely to decline any time soon and it faces more legal and regulatory issues, Bove tells investors.

SunTrust believes Workiva 'attractively valued'
SunTrust analyst Terry Tillman maintained a Buy rating and $65 price target on Workiva after the Workiva Amplify user conference, which convinced the analyst that has FY20 revenue estimate on Workiva is too conservative. The analyst noted that Workiva's Wdata product cycle is showing "strong early demand," and added that Workiva is "poised to win significant market share" in Europe. Tillman said he sees the company achieving a FY20 subscription growth rate of 19%, and doesn't think acquisitions are needed to achieve that number, as he believes organic drivers can lead to upside and an accelerating top-line. Workiva did speak about actively pursuing M&A, however, but the analyst believes deals would be below $100M in size.

Morgan Stanley trims targets for 'high multiple' software stocks amid pullback
Morgan Stanley analyst Keith Weiss, Stan Zlotsky and others in the firm's Software team noted that software stocks have pulled back 23% on average from their 52-week highs, which they attribute to a combination of high growth software multiples being at historical peaks, a volatile macro environment and sector rotations away from momentum names. Though they think the pullback raises the question of whether it is time to start buying software again, the analysts note that high growth multiples are still well above historical averages and the firm's Q3 CIO survey is suggesting a steep deceleration in software spending growth into 2020. Given those facts, as well as difficult second half comps for numerous companies in the space, they see unfavorable risk/rewards for "a lot of the high fliers," the analysts said. The team has lowered their price targets for Liveramp (RAMP) to $58 from $64, for Workiva (WK) to $42 from $46, for PagerDuty (PD) to $34 from $43, for MongoDB (MDB) to $150 from $160, for Yext (YEXT) to $15 from $16 and for VMware (VMW) to $170 from $188.

Jefferies keeps Buy rating on SAP after 'sudden' CEO departure
The departure of SAP CEO Bill McDermott, who oversaw a number of transformational acquisitions, is sudden, Jefferies analyst Julian Serafini tells investors in a research note. However, the appointment of Jennifer Morgan and Christian Klein as co-CEOs "is a sign of continuity and they emphasized a focus on organic development," adds the analyst. As such, Serafini believes the leadership change is unlikely to affect SAP's operational execution, and the analyst sees the company's better than expected Q3 results as supportive of this thesis. Serafini keeps a Buy rating on SAP shares.

Morgan Stanley cuts large cap banks view, double downgrades State Street, BNY
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck double downgraded State Street (STT) and BNY Mellon (BK), each to Underweight from Overweight, and downgraded her industry view for large cap banks to In-Line from Attractive. The group is up 23% year-to-date, but the next 6-18 months look tougher as global GDP is slowing, inflation expectations are dimming and the Fed is expected to cut rates in 2019 and 2020, which will make it "much harder for bank stocks to deliver positive surprises in operating leverage," Graseck tells investors. While she is not double downgrading the group to Cautious, because credit remains strong, Graseck sees trust banks as most exposed to the yield curve ahead of what she foresees as "18 months of rate cuts," the analyst added. She lowered her price targets on a number of large cap banks and cut her target on State Street to $55 from $69 while dropping her target for BNY to $41 from $50.

TD acquisition of Ameritrade could now be very accretive, says RBC
Valuation was a large impediment in Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD) owning 100% of TD Ameritrade (AMTD) in the past but that appears to no longer be the case, RBC Capital analyst Darko Mihelic tells investors in a research note. Ameritrade's forward consensus price-to-earnings multiple has dropped to 9.8 times, which is near historical lows, the analyst points out. He calculates that a 20% cash, 80% stock purchase would be 2.1% dilutive to his 2021 earnings estimate for TD without any assumed synergies at a purchase price of $45 per share for Ameritrade. TD only needs to find more than C$320M of synergies in 2021 for the transaction to be accretive, adds Mihelic. The analyst believes 100% ownership of TD Ameritrade makes strategic sense notes that at current valuation levels, the acquisition "could be significantly accretive to TD." Mihelic has a Sector Perform rating on Toronto-Dominion shares with a C$80 price target, down from C$82.

For Brighthouse, the analyst has concerns over low interest rates and distributable earnings. For Prudential, he sees the potential for an earnings disappointment. For the life insurance sector, 2020 consensus estimates could be too high due to pressure from low rates and the potential for an ongoing negative impact from Q3 assumption reviews. Further, forward estimates for U.S. life do not reflect the potential for higher credit losses, which are excluded from operating earnings, Kamath tells investors in a research note.
