Barclays maintains an 'Equalweight' on Bank of Montreal (NYSE: BMO) price target lowered from CAD$60 to CAD$58.

Analyst, John Aiken, said, "Headline beat, but underlying performance not likely to provide incremental support: While investors are likely to continue to debate the merits of including M&I credit recoveries within 'core' earnings, we believe that a more simple basic will likely weigh on BMO's valuation coming out of the quarter-potential relative underperformance of its retail platforms."

FY12 EPS estimate raised from $5.54 to $5.56, but FY13 lowered from $5.86 to $5.58.
