What are Wall Street analysts saying about Bancorpsouth Bank stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Bancorpsouth Bank stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of BancorpSouth have underperformed the industry over the past six months. However, the company boasts an impressive earnings surprise history.  It surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings in all the trailing four quarters. The company’s second-quarter 2018 earnings benefited from higher net interest revenues and non-interest revenues, partially offset by elevated expenses. Loans balances also improved during the quarter. Given a strong balance-sheet position, the company has been steadily enhancing shareholders’ value through strategic acquisitions, dividend hikes, share buybacks and excellent expense-management initiatives. Recently, the company announced plans to acquire Icon Capital Corporation. However, volatile net interest margin and exposure towards risky loan portfolios remain major concerns for the company." (7/23/2018)
  • 2. Brean Capital analysts commented, "BXS reported a positive start to the year, albeit with a number of moving parts, including the acquisition of Houston-based Icon Capital Corporation (~$800M in assets). For Q1, we calculate an operating EPS of $0.56 vs. Brean/consensus of $0.53/$0.52; however, excluding a positive $5.5M MSR valuation adjustment, we estimate an operating EPS of $0.52. We note there were a number of moving parts in the quarter, including an accounting change on insurance revenues and a forgery/theft loss that were offset by a lower-than-expected tax rate and elevated share repurchase activity. Q1 also included the closings of Central Community and Ouachita, which provided some noise. Overall, we view the quarter as a positive start to the year, highlighted by core NIM expansion, modest loan growth and strong credit results. In addition, the Icon Capital deal appears favorable (both financially and strategically) and could provide a positive catalyst to the shares. We expect questions around the Icon deal, operating expenses, deposit betas (BXS’ costs remain contained) and future growth prospects (previous commentary suggested mid-high single-digit organic loan growth). YTD, the shares have modestly underperformed the BANK at -2% vs. +1%, while the forward EPS multiple is in-line with peers at ~13.0x." (4/16/2018)
