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 outperformed the industry over the past six months. Also, the company possesses an impressive earnings surprise history, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters. The company’s ongoing strategic efforts, such as Project North Star, will likely boost its efficiency and revenues over the long run. Recently, Fifth Third entered into stock-cash acquisition deal with MB Financial for a total value of $4.7 billion, expaanding in Chicago. Also, margin pressure seems to be easing gradually due to the Fed’s interest rate hikes and improving economic backdrop. Further, Fifth Third's improving credit quality remains a tailwind. However, elevated expenses on the company’s branch digitization initiative and legal issues remain concerns." (5/28/2018)
- 2. Vining Sparks analysts commented, "We believe that FITB should be able to improve its full year ROTCE in 2018E by approximately 2 full percentage points while also continuing to generate meaningful TBV growth, as it benefits from the continued normalization of short-term interest rates, accelerated deployment of excess capital, and the realization of tax reform. Therefore, FITB should be able to generate a total shareholder return of around 10% in 2018E, as FITB’s increased profitability should expand its P/TBV valuation multiple towards 190% while also benefitting from a another increase in its dividend following the 2018E CCAR."
