Stock analysts at Bank of America upped their price objective on shares of AllianceBernstein Holding (NYSE:AB) to $20.00 in a report issued on Wednesday. Bank of America’s target price suggests a potential downside of 15.25% from the stock’s previous close.

The analysts wrote, “We are raising 13E by 6% due to a tax benefit and raising our PO to $20 as we roll our valuation forward to 2014. However 4Q operating results were basically in line and management noted that retail flows turned negative in January, a potentially negative inflection point which we think underscores AB’s vulnerability to a fixed income correction or flow rotation. We maintain our Underperform rating given AB’s 60% fixed income AUM and continued attrition in higher-fee assets such as private client and equity strategies.”
