What are Wall Street analysts saying about Lakeland Financial stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Lakeland Financial stock:
  • 1. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We have a favorable view of Lakeland Financial Corporation’s highly efficient operating profile, strong organic growth trends, and proven credit discipline, which we suspect will benefit “buy and hold” investors as the company continues to generate elite return metrics over the long haul. The company has historically focused on generating business within its legacy markets in northern Indiana, but has used a gradual branch-based strategy to expand into larger metro areas such as Fort Wayne and, most recently, Indianapolis. Though management’s conservatism could admittedly limit the company’s ability to generate outsized earnings growth in the near-term, we believe it also provides the long-run benefits of below- industry credit costs and more effective capital deployment."
