Here is your Pro Recap of the biggest analyst cut you may have missed since yesterday: downgrades for Nu, Futu, Magellan Midstream, and Intercept Pharmaceuticals.
Nu downgraded at Citi on expected revenue deceleration
Citi downgraded digital banking platform Nu (NYSE:NU) to Neutral from Buy and cut its price target to $6.10 from $7.00, as reported in real time on InvestingPro.
Despite the impressive run, the firm sees several headwinds ahead, including a slowdown in cards TPV, caps in pre-paid cards’ interchange, potential changes in revolving lines, lower interest rates, and higher capital requirements.
The firm believes that new initiatives (like Mexico and Payroll) should not be enough to offset such headwinds in the short term, leading to a material revenue deceleration.
The company reported its Q1 results on Monday, with EPS and revenues coming in better than the consensus estimates.
Futu receives 2 downgrades, shares fall
Futu (NASDAQ:FUTU) shares fell around 2% pre-market today after the company received downgrades from JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley following the announcement that the company is removing its app from China’s onshore app stores.
JPMorgan downgraded the company to Neutral from Overweight and cut its price target to $46.00 from $65.00, noting that share price correction on the news has not factored in the potential decline in turnover from existing Mainland clients.
Meanwhile, Morgan Stanley downgraded the company to Underweight from Equalweight and cut its price target to $34.00 from $44.00.
2 more downgrades
Stifel downgraded Magellan Midstream (NYSE:MMP) to Hold from Buy while raising its price target to $64.00 from $61.00.
Raymond James downgraded Intercept Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ICPT) to Market Perform from Outperform.
Shares dropped more than 14% yesterday after the FDA posted briefing documents ahead of a panel for NASH treatment on May 19.
