Deutsche Bank analyst Brian Bedell lowered the firm's price target on IntercontinentalExchange to $117 from $143 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. More buying opportunities are emerging in the brokers, asset managements and exchange sector amid the equity market decline, Bedell tells investors in a research note. The stocks are pricing in an estimated 55% chance of recession, making the risk/return for 12-18 month holding periods across much of the group "very attractive," says the analyst.
