On Monday, Deutsche Bank downgraded MetroPCS (NYSE: PCS) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $11.00 (from $15.00).

"Our more cautious view is based on a belief that PCS is unlikely to accept a competitive bid from another national wireless carrier at a price superior to current trading levels," the firm comments. "We are therefore valuing the company with a base case that it completes its planned merger with T-Mobile (TMUS). While we believe that the combined NewCo can achieve its synergy objectives, we nonetheless see minimal, if any, EBITDA growth during the next 3-5 years (below guidance) due to ongoing struggles at TMUS. We therefore expect valuation to remain compressed and move to the sidelines until visibility improves."
