According to Zacks Investment Research, "Zions shares have outperformed the industry over the past year. Further, the company has an impressive earnings surprise history, having surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters. Consistent growth in loans and deposits along with higher interest rates will likely continue supporting top-line growth. Also, the company has been undertaking efforts to improve operating efficiency. While elevated expense levels and significant exposure toward risky loan portfolios are expected to dent the company's financials, exemption from annual stress tests will provide it financial flexibility to some extent." (7/16/2018) 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Zions reported 3Q17 EPS of $0.72. Excluding securities gains, we peg core EPS of $0.71, $0.05 below our estimate and $0.02 below consensus. Results were impacted by higher expenses due to hurricane-related activity a ~$0.02 drag on EPS, not including a $34M allocation of the LLR for potential credit costs ($0.10 per share), and lower average loan growth and lower investment securities ($0.03 impact). Positively, EOP loan growth ZION continues at a mid-single digit pace driven by resi, C&I, and municipal growth. Additionally, efficiency and capital returns continue to improve, and credit (including energy credit) continues to be a tailwind. Accordingly, we believe ZION as well positioned to continue to generate double-digit EPS growth over the next several years. Zions trades at an attractive 10% discount to peers on 2018 earnings."
