What are analysts saying about People's United Financial stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about People's United Financial stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of People’s United have underperformed the industry in the last six months. The company has a decent earnings surprise history. It surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings in two of the trailing four quarters. The company is steadily growing through acquisitions, which is likely to continue in the near future, given its strong balance sheet position. Also, the company’s steady capital deployment activities continue to enhance investors’ confidence. However, escalating expenses despite undertaking initiatives to curb costs remains a concern. Further, a stretched valuation indicates limited upside potential for the stock." (10/9/2017)
  • 2. Keefe, Bruyette & Woods analysts commented, "ONDK reported a mixed quarter, and announced an additional $25M expense reduction initiative, reflecting tighter underwriting and implying GAAP operating expenses exit ’17 with an $160M annual run-rate. The company is reducing FY17 gross revenue guidance 9% despite strong borrower demand, but maintaining FY17 EBITDA of $5M-15M, representing a clear shift to profitability over growth. Based on current valuation, along with a higher financials" investors base, we agree with management’s strategic shift. However, elevated provision rates along with increasing interest rates likely cap near-term upside until the market can digest the algorithm’s ability to leverage its lower expense base. In additon, despite Other revenue +112% y/y, a lack of bank partnerships announcements, similar to Chase, could curb enthusiasm around licensing opportunities." (5/9/2017)
