TCF Financial Corporation (NYSE:TCF) was downgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “sell” rating in a research note issued on Monday.

According to Zacks, “Shares of TCF Financial underperformed the industry year to date. Also, the company’s earnings surprise history is not impressive. It missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings in two of the trailing four quarters. The company remains affected by the consistently declining banking fees for the last few years. However, increasing loans and strong deposit mix keep us encouraged. Though the company has been benefiting from improving credit quality in consumer real estate portfolio and witnessed enhanced profitability ratios as well, mounting expenses remains a near-term headwind.”
