Texas Capital Bancshares (TCBI) Downgraded by Zacks Investment Research to Hold

Texas Capital Bancshares (NASDAQ:TCBI) was downgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “strong-buy” rating to a “hold” rating in a research report issued to clients and investors on Tuesday.

According to Zacks, “Shares of Texas Capital have outperformed the industry over the last six months. This price performance is backed by the company’s decent earnings surprise history. It surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters. The fourth-quarter results were driven by top-line strength and lower provisions. Rise in loans and deposit balances were also recorded. The company’s diversified fee income sources should continue driving its top-line growth. Also, Texas Capital’s margins have relaxed to some extent, following consecutive rate hikes since December 2016. However, persistently increasing expenses, mainly due to hiring of experienced bankers, is likely to impede bottom-line growth. Nevertheless, the company's strong capital position remains a tailwind.”
