Nomura Securities assumes coverage and downgrades Capital One Financial (NYSE: COF) to Neutral. PT $54.00.

Analyst, Bill Carcache, said, "Weak economic returns and dilution from past deals makes us cautious. In addition, portfolio run-off and weak loan demand will challenge loan and revenue growth. We estimate the company must grow its non run-off loan book 7%+ to offset the run-off expected next year. Shares are trading at ~8x our 2013 EPS estimate, appropriate given our cautious outlook and the company’s poor track record. FY12E / 13E EPS $6.00 / $6.78 below Street at $6.11 / $6.93, respectively."
