  • 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We believe Farmers & Merchants is poised to consistently generate high-quality earnings. Management has worked diligently to reposition the balance sheet for accelerated loan growth through a combination of securities sales and accelerated core deposit growth. In the near-term, we expect loan growth to accelerate to a high single digit pace, which should aid the net interest margin as asset yields improve. Longer-term, we believe the company’s well-managed expenses and disciplined credit standards will provide stability and consistency at the bottom line. The shares currently trade at a premium to peers on both P/E and on tangible book, which we believe is warranted based on the company’s superior return profile." (10/19/2017)
