  • Compass Points Upgrades SunTrust to "Buy" (STI)

    On Thursday, financial services company SunTrust Banks, Inc. (STI) was upgraded to "Buy" at Compass Point. The firm raised its rating on STI from "Neutral" to "Buy," and has given the company a $38 price target. This price target suggests a 12% upside from the stock's current price of $33.26. Analyst Kevin Barker commented: "We believe these headwinds are already priced into the stock and the bank stands to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of a pickup in CRE and residential lending." "In addition, we believe the company is getting very little credit for cost save initiatives and would screen as being more asset sensitive if it were to let its swap portfolio run-off. Add in the potential for significant capital return following the March 2014 CCAR and we believe STI is setting up to outperform in the next year," added the analyst. SunTrust shares were up 15 cents, or 0.45%, during pre-market trading Thursday. The stock is up 17% YTD.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of SunTrust Banks, Inc. (STI) have a 1.20% yield based on Wednesday's closing price of $33.26. SunTrust Banks, Inc. (STI) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.2 out of 5 stars.

  • Deutsche Bank Upgrades SunTrust Banks to "Buy" (STI)

    Early on Friday, analysts at Deutsche Bank upgraded financial services firm SunTrust Banks, Inc. (STI) due to its potential EPS upside as the housing market continues to recover. The analysts upgraded STI from "Hold" to "Buy" and now see shares reaching $39, up from the previous target of $36. This price target suggests about a 20% upside to the stocks' Thursday closing price of $32.55. "Our upgrade reflects the potential for EPS upside over time from a continued recovery in housing--which should result in better than expected trends in credit and expenses," Deutsche Bank analyst Matt O'Connor said. "While mgmt has pointed to expense leverage from lower environmental costs/operating losses, the benefit of declining default staff- related costs has not been quantified. We estimate this opportunity is worth $150m or $0.20 per share and is not reflected in consensus estimates. We are raising our 2015E to $3.46 (vs. FC of $3.24) to account for this." O'Connor added, "Our upgrade reflects this opportunity, the recent 8% decline in the stock (vs. -5% for peers) and the stock trading at 9x our 2015E (a 15% discount vs. peers)." SunTrust shares were up $1.29, or 3.96%, during pre-market trading on Friday. The stock is up 14.81% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of SunTrust Banks (STI) offer a dividend yield of 1.23% based on Thursday's closing price of $32.55 and the company's annualized dividend payout of 40 cents per share.

  • UBS Downgrades SunTrust to "Neutral" (STI)

    UBS reported on Friday that it has downgraded financial services company, SunTrust Banks, Inc. (STI) . The firm has lowered its rating on STI from a "Buy" to "Neutral," and has maintained the company's $34 price target. This price target suggests a 8% increase from the stock's current price of $31.36. An analyst from the firm noted, "outperformance over the past year (+43% vs. +25% for industry) has been driven by acceler ated credit leverage due to economic/housing improvement and solid mortgage banking. However, these key drivers are now transitioning to factors that could take longer to achieve (loan growth, efficiency, cross selling, commercial mix shift) and valuation now looks fair leading to a reduction in our rating." SunTrust shares were down 59 cents, or -1.85% during Friday morning trading. The stock is up 11% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of SunTrust Banks, Inc. (STI) have a 1.27% yield, based on Friday morning's price of $31.42. SunTrust Banks, Inc. (STI) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.2 out of 5 stars.
