Texas Capital Bancshares (TCBI) Cut to “Sell” at Zacks Investment Research

Zacks Investment Research downgraded shares of Texas Capital Bancshares (NASDAQ:TCBI) from a hold rating to a sell rating in a research report report published on Wednesday.

According to Zacks, “Shares of Texas Capital have underperformed the industry over the past three months. However, the company possesses an impressive earnings surprise history, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters. The company’s diversified fee income sources are likely to continue driving its top-line growth. Further, the company's strong capital position remains a tailwind. Also, Texas Capital’s margins have improved to some extent, following consecutive rate hikes. Despite that, persistently increasing expenses, mainly due to hiring of experienced bankers, is likely to impede bottom-line growth to some extent. Also, lack of diversification remains a headwind for Texas Capital.”
