AMP – Citi rates the stock as Neutral

The analysts maintain there is ongoing interest for AMP Capital, as well as for AMP Wealth Management. In the same vein, the analysts also believe any deal is by no means guaranteed.

If it were left to an all-in restructuring strategy, Citi believes shareholders will be locked into a long drawn out process.

Neutral/High risk rating remains in place while the price target has improved to $1.60 from $1.55. Estimates have slightly increased following mark-to-market update.
