TCF Financial Corporation (TCF) Upgraded at Zacks Investment Research

Zacks Investment Research upgraded shares of TCF Financial Corporation (NYSE:TCF) from a sell rating to a hold rating in a research note published on Tuesday morning.

According to Zacks, “Shares of TCF Financial have 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. Further, mounting expenses primarily driven by growth in staff level remains a near-term headwind. However, increasing loans, strong deposit mix and easing margin pressure will likely to aid profitability. The company has been benefiting from improving credit quality in consumer real estate portfolio and has witnessed enhanced profitability ratios as well, which keeps us encouraged.”
