It also owns Westamerica Commercial Credit, Inc., a company engaged in financing accounts receivable and inventory lines of credit and term business loans and Community Banker Services Corporation, a company engaged in providing the company and its subsidiaries data processing services and other support functions. " (4/10/2020)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "WABC’s core performance metrics were, as usual, very strong. The 2Q19 NIM was slightly wider (slightly higher yields on earning assets, same cost of deposits/other funding). We expect a modest decrease in the NIM if the Fed cuts rates once. We are lowering our 2020 EPS estimate to $2.95, from $3.00. Lack of loan growth remains WABC’s greatest challenge, so we are maintaining our Hold rating." (7/19/2019)
