Sterling Bancorp price target raised to $30 after Astoria deal at Maxim
Maxim analyst Michael Diana raised his price target on Sterling Bancorp (STL) to $30 from $28 based on his preliminary pro forma 2018 EPS estimate for the company following its all-stock merger deal with Astoria Financial (AF).
