Deutsche Bank Investors Split on How to Boost Profit With Revamp

Deutsche Bank AG’s proposal to exit retail banking is dividing investors on whether that’s the best way to boost returns.

Credit Suisse Group AG analysts on Tuesday cut their recommendation on the stock to neutral and said scaling back retail banking could drive up Deutsche Bank’s cost of equity. Analysts at JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup Inc. disagree, saying investors should buy the shares and that a sale of the retail business would increase profitability and capital.
