  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "WESBANCO, INC. is a multi-bank holding company whose subsidiaries are engaged in general banking business. " (11/17/2018)
  • 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We believe WesBanco is poised to experience an extended period of revenue growth combined with disciplined expense control. In the near-term, a rebound in the economies of Cincinnati and Columbus, OH – as well as a recently enhanced presence in Pittsburgh, PA and Louisville, KY – are fueling a strategic shift to a commercial-oriented loan book while dampening aggregate loan growth. In the long-term, the company’s geographic position gives it prime access to growth for deposits, wealth management income and, to a lesser extent, loans arising from the Marcellus/Utica Shale gas exploration/extraction. WesBanco has a relatively low loan-to-deposit ratio (87.0%), which should help it keep deposit costs low as rates rise." (10/26/2018)
