The analysts wrote, “We’re moderating our outlook and our revised price target of $34 (was $38), which represents a 12x multiple on our updated 2020 EPS estimate of $2.86 (previous estimate of $3.16). Our rating is Overweight. KEY EPS Miss; Lowering Our EPS Forecasts. TBK reported GAAP EPS of $0.55. Excluding $400K in non-operating income, we calculate operating EPS of $0.54, above consensus forecast of $0.53. The EPS beat was driven by better-than-expected LLP expense (+0.03 to EPS) and partially offset by an elevated tax rate (-$0.01 to EPS). TBK reported PPNR of $19.9 million, below consensus forecast of $20.6 million. While 1Q19 results were driven by the soft revenue (due to loan growth and NIM compression), we partially attribute this to seasonality that should see improving trends throughout 2019.””
