Texas Capital Bancshares (NASDAQ:TCBI) Downgraded by Zacks Investment Research

Zacks Investment Research lowered shares of Texas Capital Bancshares (NASDAQ:TCBI) from a hold rating to a sell rating in a research note released on Thursday, Zacks.com reports. The brokerage currently has $60.00 price objective on the bank’s stock.

According to Zacks, “Shares of Texas Capital have underperformed the industry over the past six months. Also, the company has a disappointing earnings surprise history, having beaten the Zacks Consensus Estimate in only one of the trailing four quarters. Texas Capital’s persistently rising expenses, due to hiring of experienced bankers and expand its presence, is likely to impede bottom-line growth. Also, deterioration of credit quality and lack of geographical diversification remain headwinds. Further, significant exposure to commercial  and real estate loans keeps us apprehesive. However, growth in revenues, supported by favorable interest rates, is a tailwind. Additionally, rising loans and deposits balance, backed by a gain in market share depicts a strong capital position which would help the company undertake opportunistic expansions in the long haul.”
