Jefferies lowered estimates and its price target on Capital One Financial (NYSE: COF) from $67 to $60 but maintained a Buy rating saying the stock looks cheap here.

"We're lowering our FY'13 EPS estimate to $6.33 from $6.72 and our FY'14 EPS estimate from $7.16 to $6.56 due primarily to the $7B Best Buy card portfolio sale," the analyst notes. "With a good bit of bad news (Jan credit hiccup, CFO departure, Best Buy sale) priced into the stock currently, we see upside from current levels. COF currently trades at ~8x our FY'14 estimate, a 3 turn discount to other regional banks."
