What are Wall Street analysts saying about Meta Financial Group stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Meta Financial Group stock:
- 1. 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. " (1/19/2018)
- 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "We raise our rating on CASH to Buy, from Neutral. CASH reported a solid 4Q17, driven by solid fee income and lower-than-expected credit costs and expenses. Importantly, CASH’s continued balance sheet growth and solid fee income, combined with its prior update for the upcoming 2018 tax season, bode well for FY18 results. CASH trades at just 11.5x our 2018 estimate, which we consider attractive: CASH has plugged the gap from the loss of the H&R Block business (~56% of 2017 originations) and announced multiyear agreements with all of its RA partners. We think the multiyear agreements, combined with continued solid results from CASH’s prepaid business and loan growth, should increase confidence in its earnings outlook and increase CASH’s value."

Meta Financial Group (NASDAQ:CASH) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
