What are Wall Street analysts saying about PacWest Bancorp stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about PacWest Bancorp stock:
  • 1. Stephens analysts commented, "We believe investor expectations were low for PACW’s 2Q results given fears around muted loan growth and continued NIM pressures. While mixed, we thought the in-line results ($0.94) were overall OK. Although lower q/q, 3.5% LQA loan growth was slightly better than Street’s expectations; and we view the NIM to be a push, as (ex. elevated prepay fees) the core loan-deposit spread came in 1 bps better than we anticipated which, coupled with lower liquidity due to elevated securities sales ($980 mil.), drove a 3 bps core NIM beat but ultimately a $4.3 mil. core FTE NII miss. Credit results were fine, including elevated NCOs but lower NPLs and special mention loans. We have an Overweight rating given the above peer profitability profile (1.72% ROA in 2Q) and discounted valuation of 9.8x our 2020 EPS." (7/16/2019)
