Barclays maintains an 'Equalweight' on Royal Bank of Canada (NYSE: RY) price target lowered from CAD$57 to CAD$55.

Analyst, John Aiken, said, "Unlike the experience in the first quarter, it appears that the market is not happy with earnings for Royal being supported by the capital markets. While we do believe that the sustainability of these revenues do merit some challenges in the current environment, we are surprised to see the market immediately discounting them, particularly after the positive reaction they garnered coming out of the first quarter."

Aiken lowers FY12 EPS Estimate from $4.93 to $4.83 and FY13 from $5.20 to $5.02.
