What are analysts saying about UBS AG stock?

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "UBS Group AG’s shares have significantly underperformed the Zacks categorized Foreign Banks industry over the past one year. We remain apprehensive as the company’s profitability continues to be challenged by negative interest rates and global growth concerns. Also, the company is burdened with many legal hassles and is subject to heightened regulatory supervision. These headwinds may result in escalated costs and generate capital inefficiencies and operational inflexibility. However, the company remains focused on building capital levels and executing restructuring initiatives. Notably, management anticipates achieving CHF 2.1 billion in net cost reductions by the end of 2017. Notably, management targets a pay-out ratio of at least 50% of net profit in the near to long term." (1/11/2017)

  • Morgan Stanley analysts commented, "The best Q for private banking inflows ever was more than offset by soggy revenues, lack of operational leverage & miss in capital ratios," analyst Huw Van Steenis wrote in a note.As of March 2016, UBS achieved cost savings of CHF 1.2 billion, and the bank is on track to achieve CHF 2.1 billion in net cost reductions by the end of 2017. Steenis expressed surprise as the bank did not signal more aggressive cost control to respond to the "paralyzing volatility" of 2016.Related Link: Big Bank Investors Relieved With Dimon Purchase, Deutsche Bank CommentaryUBS's board proposed to shareholders to pay an ordinary dividend of CHF 0.60 per share, as well as a special dividend of CHF 0.25 per share, for the year 2015. The analyst expects a dividend of CHF 0.65 per share (4.3 percent yield) for 2016, down from CHF 0.85 per share last year.Looking Forward"We think UBS has the potential for an appealing yield as it works through its issues-however the environment & capital misses mean the odds for specials in the next three years is remote," Steenis highlighted.In addition, the analyst expects $2.5 billion for DoJ settlement, but the shadow of litigation to impact near-term dividends.Further, the analyst expects UBS's Equities trading results to be 1.5 times worse than for U.S. peers given European and Asian skew."Whilst UBS leading franchise remains intriguing L-T, given headwinds, relative valuation no longer stands out at ~9.5x 18e (vs 9x for peers) & 5 percent 17e yield," Steenis continued."To outperform from here UBS would require a big increase in cost efficiency, client risk appetite improving and sight-raising divis," Steenis added.The analyst also cut the price target to CHF 18.30 from CHF 20.80, saying that the key upside risks to the price target include a sharp and continued recovery in investment banking revenues across the industry and far stronger private banking profits.On the other hand, the main downside risks are "higher book value erosion from risky assets and material client money outflows, as well as greater ongoing marks from de-leveraging, an inability to improve the profitability of the i-bank, and higher litigation charges."
