Financial services provider Ameriprise Financial, Inc. ( AMP ) on Monday received some continued positive commentary from analysts at UBS.

The firm reiterated its "Buy" rating on AMP and lifted its price target from $60 to $69. That new target implies a potential 20% upside to the stock's Friday closing price of $57.60.

A UBS analyst commented, "Outlook on asset management remains mixed. Retail flows are likely to remain challenged by the environment and asset allocation bias favoring fixed income over equities. Return to positive U.S. retails flows is critical."

Continuing, "Our investment thesis of upside potential from an improving macro environment with downside protection from aggressive capital management remains intact."

Ameriprise shares were mostly flat in premarket trading Monday.
