Maxim Group analysts commented, "STL reported 4Q18 EPS of $0.51, beating consensus of $0.50. Excluding non- recurring items, EPS would have been $0.53 (by our calculations). In our view, it was a solid quarter. Core non-interest income (excluding non-recurring items) was up linked-quarter, and non-interest expenses were down, and both were at a run-rate consistent with revised 2019 guidance. Both the NIM and the core NIM (excluding accretion income on acquired loans) were stable (down only 1bp), as yields on interest earning assets increased, and the increase in deposit costs slowed (up 9bps versus up 13bps in 3Q18). However, average earning assets were down slightly, so net interest income was down 0.5%. The core efficiency ratio was a low 40%."
