Jefferies identifies six potential takeover targets for BB&T
Following BB&T's (BBT) recent bank comments regarding acquisitions and clarifications of its parameters, Jefferies analyst Ken Usdin identified six regional banks as potential takeover targets: BancorpSouth (BXS), First Horizon (FHN), Hancock Whitney (HWC), Iberiabank (IBKC), Pinnacle Financial (PNFP) and United Bankshares (UBSI). First Horizon and Iberiabank "look the best-fitting solely from a number perspective," Usdin tells investors in a research note.
