HSBC analyst Carlos Gomez-Lopez downgraded Credicorp (NYSE: BAP) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $137.00 (from $180.00).

The analyst comments "One of the attractions of the Credicorp investment thesis has been a continuity in Peru’s economic policy that was relatively unaffected by political noise. Between 2000 and 2019, GDP grew at a CAGR of 4.9%, the highest among the large Latin American countries. The current presidential election, which will be decided in the second round on 6 June, could bring about important changes in the economic framework and prospects for the country. Credicorp, as the largest bank and best proxy for the domestic market, is affected."
