Deutsche Bank Reiterates Buy On Shares Of Regions Financing
In a research report released today, Deutsche Bank analyst Matt O’Connor reiterated a Buy rating on Regions Financing (NYSE:RF). No price target was provided.
O’connor noted, “Given RF just reported 3Q results, we focused less on near term trends. RF remains one of our top picks reflecting its low valuation (trading at a 10-30% discount vs. peers), leverage to rising interest rates (2-3x more asset sensitive vs. most peers) and excess capital (which could boost ROE by 2-7% over time as it’s deployed). We recently upgraded asset sensitive regional banks following the sharp decline in interest rates and stock prices—and view RF as one of the best risk/rewards among this group.”
