Boenning Scattergood analysts commented, "We view Provident Financial Services, Inc. as a well-run institution with strong credit metrics, balance sheet growth in commercial categories that should generate positive economic returns on capital, diversified fee income that has become a larger contributor to revenue, and strong expense controls. However, we believe the current share price accurately reflects the company’s fundamental position. The stock trades in-line with peers based on 2018 P/E (17.0x vs. 17.4x), but at a discount based on price-to-tangible book (2.1x vs. 2.4x). The current tangible book discount is not enough for us to suggest investors get constructive in the stock considering the peer-like P/E ratio. As such, we maintain our Neutral rating on PFS shares."
