Analysts’ price target and ratings
With an average consensus price target of 23.87 euros and a median target estimate of 23.12 euros, Deutsche Bank (DB) is still at a discount of 33% to analysts’ expectations. Among the 37 analysts following the stock, only ten are upbeat on the stock and think it should be bought at current levels.
Shares of Deutsche Bank have received seven “sell” ratings and 20 “hold” ratings. It’s worth noting that the estimated EPS (earnings per share) has been revised downward once by research brokerages in the past four weeks.
Fresh concerns on the bank’s ability to fulfill payments on its convertible bonds due in April 2016 has led to a 9% crash in its stock in the past few trading sessions. Given the dismal performance, we may see some more analysts turning bearish on the stock given the fear that the bank could go bust.
