Online brokerage operator TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. ( AMTD ) on Friday caught a big downgrade from analysts at Deutsche Bank.

The firm said it cut its rating on AMTD from "Buy" to "Hold" with an $18 price target. That target suggests a 12% downside to the stock's Thursday closing price of $20.47.

A Deutsche Bank analyst commented, "For AMTD, while the long term outlook still remains favorable (healthy NNA, exp/cap flexibility, & upside from rate / NIM / margin normalization), given the recent run in the stock/a fair valuation, upcoming seasonality, & a still challenging backdrop (rates/macro), we see limited upside."


TD Ameritrade shares posted small losses in premarket trading Friday.

The Bottom Line
Shares of TD Ameritrade ( AMTD ) have a .98% dividend yield, based on last night's closing stock price of $20.47. The stock has technical support in the $17-$18 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $22 price level.

TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. ( AMTD ) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.2 out of 5 stars.
