Standpoint Research downgraded Hudson City Bancorp (NASDAQ: HCBK) from Buy to Hold.

This is in an effect calling a top on MTB (NYSE: MTB), which is in a deal to acquire the company.

"MTB is now the fifth largest regional bank with market cap of $13 bln. Good news appears to be priced in at this time at MTB but bad news in the near- to medium-term is not... as is the case with the overall market. For whoever is looking for an alternative idea in this industry, our recommendation would be First Niagara (NASDAQ: FNFG).
