Compass Point upgraded First Horizon National (NYSE: FHN) from Sell to Neutral with a price target of $8.00.

Analyst, Mike Turner, said, "We continue to expect that revenue growth will remain underwhelming and private label putback risk cannot be ignored. However, our scenario analysis suggests a worst case outcome for putbacks and Basel III implementation would be required in order to justify a Sell rating at the current level, particularly based on a risk/reward framework...We lower our FY12/13 EPS estimates from $0.22 and $1.10 to $0.04 and $0.89, respectively."
