According to Zacks, “Shares of Texas Capital have outperformed the industry, over the past six months. Yet, the company has a disappointing earnings surprise history, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate in only one of the trailing four quarters. Texas Capital’s persistently rising expenses, mainly due to the hiring of experienced bankers, is likely to impede bottom-line growth to some extent. Moreover, lack of diversification in loan portfolio is a concern. However, growth in revenues, supported my favorable interest rates, is a tailwind. Further, the company’s diversified fee income sources are likely to support the bottom-line expansion. 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.”
