What are analysts saying about Investar Holding Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Investar Holding Corporation stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Investar Holding Corporation is a bank holding company for Investar Bank. It offers a range of commercial and retail lending products throughout its market areas, including business loans to small to medium-sized businesses and professional concerns, as well as loans to individuals. The company accepts various deposit products, including savings, checking, money market, and NOW accounts, as well as various certificates of deposit and individual retirement accounts.

  • 2. Piper Jaffray Companies analysts commented, "We are lowering our 17E EPS to $1.09 (-$0.06) and raising our 18E EPS to $1.43 (+$0.10) to reflect: (1) $34.5M common offering, (2) $18.6M sub-debt offering, and (3) the purchase of Citizens Bancshares, Inc. ('CB'-private). Our revised price target of $24 (+$2) reflects a target P/E of 16.5x (no change) 18E EPS. Given the effective consideration of ~67% equity/33% cash vs. 100% cash at announcement, EPS accretion dropped to $0.10, or 8%, in 18E vs. $0.27, or +20%, assuming 100% cash. We estimate a TBV earn-back of 2.6Y. Assuming loan/bond yields of 4.5%/2.0%, a shift in CB's loan to earning asset mix of 54% to ISTR's 79% mix would lift EPS by $0.11, which is not factored into our 18E." (3/23/2017)
