Zions Bancorp slashed at Morgan Stanley

Zions Bancorp (NASDAQ:ZION) share fell more than 1% pre-market today after Morgan Stanley downgraded the company to Underweight from Equalweight with a price target of $32.00 (from $27.00).

The firm's decision is based on several factors. Zions’ recent strong rally, up over 70% since May lows, has brought its valuation in line with industry peers, ending a period of consistent discount trading throughout 2023.

“We believe this skews risk-reward to the downside in a higher for longer rate environment given the elevated risk of NIB outflow which would need to be replaced with higher cost client deposits currently off-balance sheet,” mentioned Morgan Stanley.

Valley National cut to Underweight

Morgan Stanley downgraded Valley National Bancorp (NASDAQ:VLY) to Underweight from Equalweight with a price target of $8.50 (from $8.00), as reported in real-time on InvestingPro.

We think Consensus is underestimating the pressure on Valley's NII in a higher for longer rate environment. VLY has a 101% loan-to-deposit ratio (vs. ~84% for peers) which gives them less flexibility on deposit pricing in a higher for longer rate environment.
