What are analysts saying about Fidelity Southern Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Fidelity Southern Corporation stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Fidelity Southern Corporation, through its operating subsidiary Fidelity Bank, provides a wide range of banking, mortgage and investment services through branches in Atlanta, Georgia. Mortgage, construction, and automobile loans are also provided through offices in Jacksonville, Florida. " (7/25/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "LION reported 4Q16 EPS of $0.57, but we estimate operating EPS of $0.25 after excluding a $13.1M recovery of a previously impaired mortgage servicing right (MSR). On this basis, operating EPS were below both our estimate of $0.39 and the Street’s $0.41. Overall, strong mortgage banking origination fees and the MSR recovery drove 4Q16 earnings as top-line revenues declined QOQ, primarily due to lower discount accretion income recognition and flat earning-asset volumes. Asset quality also declined modestly in the quarter, with an increase in both nonperforming loans and net charge-offs (which was fully covered by the loan loss provision), relative to last quarter."
