Texas Capital Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ:TCBI) was downgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “buy” rating to a “hold” rating in a note issued to investors on Thursday, July 13th.
According to Zacks, “Texas Capital’s shares outperformed the Zacks categorized Southwest Banks industry in the last one year. The company’s diversified fee income sources should continue driving its top-line growth. Moreover, Texas Capital’s strong capital position keeps it well poised for opportunistic expansions. Further, the recent Fed interest rate hike expected to ease the pressure on margin. However, lack of geographical diversification and significantly mounting expenses keep us apprehensive. Nevertheless, the expectation of lesser regulations will act as a tailwind for the company in the medium term.”
