What are Wall Street analysts saying about Comerica stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Comerica stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Comerica have outperformed the industry year to date. This is backed by the company's 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 reflected high revenues, lower expenses, increase in loan balances and improved credit metrics. Comerica’s future prospects look promising as it has improvised the financial targets for revenues and efficiency initiatives. It expects to deliver annual pre-tax income of about $270 million by the year-end 2018 through GEAR Up initiatives. Also, the company’s steady capital-deployment activities continue to enhance investors’ confidence. Though escalating expenses and substantial exposure to commercial loans remain major concerns, lower tax rates, expected easing of regulations and rising interest rates are likely to support Comerica's top line." (7/18/2018)
  • 2. Vining Sparks analysts commented, "We believe that over the next 12 to 18 months that CMA should be able to improve its profitability by approximately 3 full percentage points, as the Fed continues to normalize short-term interest rates, deployment of capital increases, and tax reform is realized. Therefore, we believe that CMA should generate total shareholder return of 8%, as mid- single digit TBV growth is coupled with a modest expansion of its P/TBV to 225% and is topped off with a 1.3% dividend yield. However, we would highlight that CMA has a meaningful amount of excess capital that could create additional upside potential if it begins to be deployed at an accelerated pace." (1/16/2018)
