KeyCorp (NYSE:KEY) had its neutral rating reaffirmed by analysts at Zacks. They currently have a $13.50 price target on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “KeyCorp’s third-quarter earnings comfortably outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Results benefited from increased net interest income, partially offset by lower non-interest income and a slight rise in operating expenses. Moreover, continued improvement in asset quality and strong capital ratios were the other highlights of the quarter. We expect the company’s business restructuring actions to continue to drive its credit quality and liquidity. Moreover, the company’s capital deployment actions highlight its sound capital position. However, we remain wary of the shaky economic recovery, stringent regulatory restrictions and the existing low interest-rate scenario. Nevertheless, we are optimistic about the company’s strong balance sheet and improved market share.”
Ligand Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:LGND) had its hold rating reissued by analysts at Cantor Fitzgerald. They currently have a $44.00 target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of $43.00. The analysts wrote, “Today Merck announced its plan to continue development of its BACE inhibitor (MK-8931) for mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s Disease. Merck is conducting two trials which read out in mid-2017 and mid-2018, respectively; and may need to conduct additional clinical work to obtain FDA approval. We view this program as high risk given the failure rate in prior Alzheimer’s compounds but do think that program progression removes an overhang from LGND shares and warrants some additional credit in valuation…We reiterate our HOLD rating on LGND.”
