Raymond James analyst Michael Rose downgraded Truist Financial (NYSE: TFC) from Outperform to Market Perform.

The analyst comments "We are downgrading TFC shares from Outperform to Market Perform given limited upside to our previous price target and lack of identifiable catalysts that would drive nearer-term outperformance or multiple expansion. While we continue to view Truist's fundamental story positively, especially as the benefits from the MOE further materialize, we see these benefits as largely reflected in consensus expectations. YTD, TFC shares are up 28.5%, above the S&P 500 (+12.7%) but below the BKX (+35.6%) where only JPM (+26.9%) and C (+21.8%) have lower YTD performance among peers. With shares trading at a similar premium to peers on a P/TBV basis and at a well-deserved P/E multiple premium given above peer projected profitability, we now see risk-reward as balanced."
