What are Wall Street analysts saying about Popular stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Popular stock:
- 1. BTIG Research analysts commented, "in Focus as BPOP Prepares to Release 1Q18 Report The commentary offered by Popular Inc. (BPOP) management regarding credit quality in the company’s 4Q17 report on January 23 was surprisingly encouraging to many observers in light of the severity of the physical and economic damage inflicted on its home market of Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria just over four months earlier. In particular, management noted that early delinquency data for auto, credit card and personal loans for the first few weeks of January 2018 had been similar to or better than that from the same period in the prior year. That disclosure helped to sustain a relief rally in BPOP shares that had begun after the stock hit its post-Maria low tick on October 23. Since then, the stock has rallied by more than 35% such that it is now trading slightly above the company’s book value per share as of YE17. With BPOP scheduled to report its 1Q18 results on Tuesday, April 24, we believe additional appreciation in the stock will depend on what the company discloses regarding the credit performance of its mortgage book during the months that followed the expiration in December of a moratorium on payment collection." (4/18/2018)
