Shift: Maintain Neutral – 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."
