According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of BancorpSouth have outperformed the industry over the past six months. Further, the company boasts an impressive earnings surprise history, having surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters. The first-quarter 2019 results reflected higher net interest revenues, lower provisions, reduced non-interest income and elevated expenses. Given a strong balance-sheet position, the company has been steadily enhancing its shareholders’ value through strategic acquisitions, dividend hikes, share buybacks and excellent expense-management initiatives. Although exposure toward risky loan portfolios and mounting expenses remain major concerns for the company, rising interest rates will continue to support the top line." (5/7/2019) 2.

PAA) expanded 3 bps to 3.74%, above our forecast of 3.71% as +13 bps core loan yield expansion outpaced +11 bps in IB deposit cost increase. Deposits increased 18% LQA which is partially driven by seasonality. The NII beat ($152.6 million vs. our forecast of $151.2 million) was also partially driven by ~$0.5 million LQ increase in purchase accounting. BXS repurchased 1 million shares of common stock (above our forecast of 500k) at a weighted average price of $27.60 per share. Negative Takeaways.
