Credit Suisse analyst Frank Zheng downgraded Lufax Holding Ltd (NYSE: LU) from Neutral to Underperform with a price target of $1.40 (from $1.70).

The analyst comments "Factoring in the miss of 3Q22 results and a weakened outlook for 4Q22 and FY23, we decrease loan volume estimates for FY22/23/24 by 11%/26%/19% to Rmb493/ 437/535bn. Further, we lower RCF take rate estimates by ~0.6/0.3/0.3pp. We cut FY22/23/24E EPS by 32%/47%/28%, primarily on lower revenue, partially offset by savings in expenses. Our DCF model derives a new TP at US$1.40 (from US$1.70), implying 3.1x/3.8x FY22/ 23E P/E. Lufax is trading at 3.9x/4.7x FY22/23E P/E. Downgrade to Underperform. Key upside risk: (1) faster-than-expected recovery of macro conditions; (2) more sizable stock buyback or dividend; and (3) lower delisting risk following the potential resolution of CN ADR's audit issue."
