Deutsche Bank Lowered to Underperform at Bank of America (DB)
The analysts wrote, “With near term capital pressures building and in our view the threat of franchise damage high, DB has chosen to raise. The cost is at least a 25% reduction in EPS power, more if we include the cost of AT1. With DB offering no obvious offsets it has positioned the bank as a geared play on FICC recovery.” While Deutsche Bank may be on the right track for long-term development, the analyst commented that the company “risks being structurally valued at a discount to book.”
