What are analysts saying about Meta Financial Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Meta Financial Group stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Meta Financial Group, Inc. is the holding company for federally chartered savings bank MetaBank, Member FDIC. Headquartered in Sioux Falls, S.D., MetaBank operates in both the Banking and Payments industries: MetaBank, its retail banking division; Meta Payment Systems, its electronic payments division; AFS/IBEX, its insurance premium finance division; and Refund Advantage, its tax refund-transfer software division. The synergies among the four provide a unique business model for the company. " (2/14/2017)

  • FBR & Co analysts commented, "Meta reported 1Q17 EPS of $0.14. Excluding securities losses, merger expenses, and direct tax season startup costs, we peg core at $0.38 per share. Our core earnings number includes $1.2M, or $0.08 per share, of noncash stock-related compensation, which we include to be consistent with other banks. Results were modestly below our estimate of $0.42 per share due to lower-than-expected NII as a result of higher cash balances and wholesale borrowings in anticipation of greater tax-related lending during the March 2017 quarter. Weaker-than-expected NII was partly offset by higher fees and lower-than-expected expenses. Results were also marked by a decline in tangible book value due to lower investment securities values. Despite the decline in capital on a GAAP basis, Meta remains well capitalized from a regulatory perspective to support strong balance sheet growth from its tax refund business for the March 2017 quarter. We believe the sell-off creates a buying opportunity and reiterate our Outperform rating as our outlook for Meta’s earnings growth is unchanged. Our 2017 and 2018 EPS estimates are unchanged at $6.80 and $8.60, respectively." (2/1/2017)
