UPDATE: Stifel Nicolaus Downgrades PNC Financial Services Group to Hold
Stifel Nicolaus reduced its rating on PNC Financial Services Group (NYSE: PNC) from Buy to Hold and removed its $74 price target.
Stifel Nicolaus commented, "As a result of the company's 3Q12 earnings reported on Tuesday, we are lowering our EPS estimates to $5.85 and $6.40 from $6.00 and $6.90 for 2012 and 2013, respectively. In addition, we are downgrading the shares to Hold.
