Share on StockTwits

Maxim Group reissued their buy rating on shares of Customers Bancorp (NYSE:CUBI) in a research report report published on Wednesday, AnalystRatings.com reports. They currently have a $38.00 price objective on the bank’s stock.

“On July 1, CUBI announced that a mortgage warehouse customer had unexpectedly ceased business, prompting CUBI to seize collateral for a $26M loan, giving rise to an estimated $7M-$8M pre-tax loss being included in 2Q19 results. We regard this as non-recurring, and not reflective of credit quality issues. Therefore, we maintain our 2020 EPS estimate of $3.00, and reiterate our Buy rating. Our 12-month price target of $38 equates to a 2020E P/E multiple of 12.7x, which is consistent with the average 2020E P/E multiples of high-quality Small-Cap banks that we follow.”,” the firm’s analyst commented.
