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. Vining Sparks analysts commented, "Much like the other Large Cap U.S. Banks, FITB currently trades at a significant discount to what we believe is a reasonable valuation. We don ’t believe that FITB’s current 139% price-to-tangible book value, after adjusting for the MB Financial acquisition, is representative of the 17% return -on-tangible common equity, expected in 2019E, or its current 3.6% dividend yield. As earnings per share continue to grow at close to 10% in 2019E, following a 39% increase in 2018, we also believe the 9.5x price-to-earnings is also unsustainably low. 35% total return potential seems high, we would remind investors that FITB traded at almost $35 less than a year ago." (1/22/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Fifth Third have underperformed the industry over the past six months. While estimates ahead of fourth-quarter 2018 earnings have remained stable lately, the company displays an impressive earnings surprise history, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate in all 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. Also, margin pressure seems to be easing gradually due to the Fed’s interest rate hikes and improving economic backdrop. However, elevated expenses on the company’s branch digitization initiative and legal issues remain headwinds. Also, significant exposure to commercial loans remains a concern."
