  • 2. Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We remain Neutral on shares of PFS following 1Q19 results. We expect future loan growth in the low-single-digit range, slower than some peers, due to a combination of competitive markets, elevated borrower paydown activity, and strict underwriting criteria. Another issue facing Provident today is the upcoming crossing of the $10 billion regulatory threshold. While recent FinReg reform could soften the impact relative to prior expectations, the Durbin Amendment is still likely to have a negative impact on interchange revenue, though is likely a 2020 event. Shares of Provident currently trade above peers at 14.2x our 2019 EPS estimate (11.7x peer average) and 1.9x TBV (1.5x peer average). Thus, as we weigh the strengths and challenges facing the company today, we view the stock as fairly valued." (4/26/2019)
