Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We maintain our Neutral rating on shares of CBU with the stock trading at a significant premium to peers on forward P/E 2019 (18.0x vs. 11.1x) and price-to-tangible book (3.5x vs. 1.8x). We feel a premium is justified given the company’s consistent business strategy and above-peer profitability. We are modeling a 1.55+% ROA in 2018 and 2019. The challenge for the company today is finding attractive opportunities to deploy capital. With its footprint in low-growth markets, acquisitions of both banks and fee-income businesses could be used to supplement organic growth." (10/22/2018)
