    Could you explain that a little more? I was not aware that the inversion would create a taxable event. Thanks!

    S&P CAPITAL IQ KEEPS HOLD RECOMMENDATION ON SHARES OF BB&T CORP.
    (S&P Capital IQ) Print

    We lower our target price by $2 to $38, an above peer 12.8X our forward four quarters EPS estimate of $2.97. Peer median multiple is 12.0X, and BBT has traded at an average of 12.6X in last 12 months. BBT reports Q2 EPS of $0.58 vs. $0.77 (GAAP) and $0.70 vs. $0.79 (operating), missing our $0.77 forecast and the Capital IQ consensus view of $0.75. One-time mortgage-related and tax reserve adjustments reduced EPS by $0.12, but BBT is facing strong net interest margin pressure. We cut our '14 EPS estimate to $2.74 from $2.89 and our '15 EPS estimate to $3.00 from $3.34.

    Interesting that BB&T took a large reserve against defective FHA Mortgages even before the HUD audit has started. Apparently this is based on triple-damages that HUD has assessed to other lenders. Jamie Dimon with JP Morgan has even said they will seriously consider cutting back on FHA mortgages. Would not be surprised if other lenders follow suit.

    Had a call today because I had not voted my proxy which I had just received. Anyone else? I can't remember a call for previous proxies. Just seemed odd.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Looks like they beat by a penny. Strong net asset value too. Should move us up today.

    S&P CAPITAL IQ UPGRADES TO BUY FROM HOLD ON VALUATION APOLLO INVESTMENT SHARES
    (S&P Capital IQ) Print

    We are raising our target price by $0.50 to $9 approximately in line with peers and AINV's recent net asset value with a slight discount to the stock's historical valuation. As a closed-end investment company, AINV has an attractive dividend yield at 9.8%, above peers. Even though it has become more challenging to find high yield investments, we believe AINV can find attractive risk adjusted returns to maintain a weighted average yield on its total debt portfolio above 11%. Also, the firm has broadened its investments to senior secured loans and energy investments.

    Sentiment: Buy

    S&P CAPITAL IQ LOWERS OPINION ON SHARES OF BB&T CORP TO HOLD FROM BUY
    (S&P Capital IQ) Print

    We lower our 12-month target price by $5 to $40, 13.4X our 12-month forward EPS estimate of $2.99 and 2.1X tangible book value per share, multiples slightly above BBT's historical and peer multiples. BBT posts Q1 EPS of $0.69 vs. $0.29, matching our and Capital IQ consensus forecasts. On Q1 results, we see loan growth as not strong enough to offset downward pressure on net interest margin, leading to below-peer revenue growth in '14. We lower our '14 estimate to $2.89 from $3.07. Also, earnings are more dependent on reserve releases than at peers, a negative in our view.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Downgrades to Equal-weight with $43 target. Take heed.

    In a report published Thursday, Stifel analyst Amir Arif downgraded the rating on Suncor Energy (NYSE: SU) from Buy to Hold, and removed the $36.00 price target.

    In the report, Stifel noted, “We are downgrading SU from Buy to Hold on fair valuation. With the name having essentially reached our target price and now trading at 5.1 2014 EV/EBITDA and 90% of risked NAV, we believe the name is fairly valued in the near term. With the company already showing a greater willingness to return some free cash flow to shareholders (increasing dividends, share buybacks) and with near term production growth already defined (2-3 years), we do not see any company specific drivers to cause a relative outperformance and the name should move with crude oil in the near term. Bottom line, with no company specific drivers expected in the near term and the stock at fair value we are downgrading from Buy to Hold.”

    Suncor Energy closed on Wednesday at $35.31.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Bank of America Reiterates Neutral Rating on Apollo Investment Following FYQ1'14 EPS Report
    11:16a ET August 8, 2013 (Benzinga) In a report published Thursday, Bank of America analyst Kenneth Bruce reiterated a Neutral rating and $9.00 price target on Apollo Investment (NASDAQ: AINV).

    In the report, Bank of America noted, “AINV reported FYQ1'14 operating EPS of $0.25, above our $0.20 estimate and Street consensus at $0.20, driven by higher investment income offset by yield compression. Higher dividend income and Other income helped fuel the beat vs. our forecast. AINV's portfolio appreciated nicely and investment activity was robust, with gross fundings reaching their second highest level ever. At the same time, the portfolio yield fell after being stable the last three quarters. Net asset value (NAV) also declined to $8.16 from $8.27, in part due to a $96M realized loss. AINV's FYQ1'14 results show some nice progress, given the healthy investment activity, portfolio growth and better credit, but we remain concerned about falling asset yields. Maintain Neutral.”

    Apollo Investment closed on Wednesday at $8.05.
