What are Wall Street analysts saying about Fifth Third Bancorp stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Fifth Third Bancorp stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Fifth Third have underperformed the industry so far this year. Yet, the company displays an impressive earnings surprise history, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters. Second-quarter results reflect higher revenues and lower provisions, partially offset by rise in costs. The company’s ongoing strategic efforts, such as Project North Star, will likely boost its efficiency and revenues over the long run. Fifth Third entered into stock-cash acquisition deal with MB Financial in May 2018, in order to expand presence in Chicago. Also, margin pressure seems to be easing gradually due to the Fed’s interest rate hikes and improving economic backdrop. Though, elevated expenses on the company’s branch digitization initiative and legal issues remain concerns, Fifth Third's improving credit quality remains a tailwind." (7/24/2018) 2. Vining Sparks analysts commented, "While FITB has continued to meaningfully improve its operating ROTCE over the past year, all eyes are focused on how much improvement FITB can generate from its MB Financial acquisition, once it closes in the first quarter of 2019. We continue to believe that FITB should be able to improve its ROTCE by another 3 to 4 percentage points by 2020E, as FITB benefits from its announced synergies, continued strong capital deployment, and the continued normalization of interest rates. As this increased profitability begins to be realized, FITB should generate over 20% of long-term shareholder value." (7/19/2018) Are investors shorting Fifth Third Bancorp?
