  • 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We believe MBCN shares present investors with an opportunity to gain exposure to a bank with steady organic growth, proven credit discipline, and prudent expense control, at an attractive valuation. Management’s dedicated effort to build shareholder value through geographic expansion, strategic acquisitions, and increased visibility within the investor community has meaningfully impacted the stock’s performance. While these outsized benefits are likely in the rearview, we remain attracted to Middlefield’s combination of strong fundamentals and the stock’s improved liquidity profile. The shares trade at a discount to peers on both 2018 P/E (12.6x vs. 14.8x), and price-to-tangible book (149% vs. 203%). From our perspective, both discounts are unwarranted based on the company’s favorable outlook for earnings growth and in-line return metrics (10.4% LTM ROTCE)." (7/20/2018)
