Deutsche Bank started coverage on shares of Ally Financial (NYSE:ALLY) in a research note issued on Tuesday, TheFlyOnTheWall.com reports. The firm set a “hold” rating and a $26.00 price target on the stock. Deutsche Bank’s price target points to a potential upside of 6.34% from the company’s current price.

The analysts wrote, “Ally Financial represents an interesting ROE recovery story within the consumer lending space. While there are many moving pieces, there is a path to 9-10% ROTCE by 2015 (vs. 7% currently) from lower expenses, lower funding costs, and some capital actions, in our view. However, we believe upside to returns (and the stock) will depend on more aggressive capital deployment (which we believe will be further out) and better underlying revenue growth (which may be difficult). We believe the valuation is fair at the current ROE/earnings trajectory. HOLD.”
