What are Wall Street analysts saying about Cullen/Frost Bankers stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Cullen/Frost Bankers stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Cullen/Frost have outperformed the industry over the past six months. The company possesses an impressive earnings surprise history, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate in all the trailing four quarters. Earnings estimates have been revised slightly upward ahead of the company's fourth quarter results. With a rising interest-rate environment and improving non-interest bearing deposits, the company's net interest income and net interest margin are likely to grow. The company's strong liquidity position keeps it well poised for opportunistic expansions. Also, its steady capital-deployment activities reflect robust balance-sheet position. However, the company’s significant exposure to real estate in its loan portfolio and rising costs, mainly resulting from expanding franchise, are likely to deter bottom-line growth to some extent." (1/3/2019)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "1Q18 EPS of $1.61 beat consensus of $1.48, with solid loan growth (1.7% linked-quarter), a 13bp increase in the adjusted NIM, and stable expenses. We are raising our 2018 EPS estimate to $6.45, from $6.25, due to the 1Q18 beat and an improved outlook. Based on our new 2018 EPS estimate, we are raising our price target to $125, from $120. Our new price target equates to 19.4x our new 2018 EPS estimate, which is inline with other best-in-class mid- cap banks." (4/26/2018)
