Ameris Bancorp upgraded to Buy from Hold at Sandler O'Neill

Sandler O'Neill analyst Casey Whitman upgraded Ameris Bancorp (ABCB) to Buy from Hold stating that the pullback has been severe enough that he believes that it is time to buy with the stock now down 43% over the last six months. Even based on estimates that are more conservative than the Street, Whitman sees the company generating EPS growth of 24% in 2019, he noted. Remarking on the company's agreement to acquire Fidelity Southern (LION), Whitman said the deal was a surprise but he thinks it makes sense to combine these two banks given Fidelity's valuable lower-costing core deposit base centered in Atlanta. The analyst, who also sees an opportunity for scale and efficiency in the mortgage segment, has a $41 price target on Ameris shares.

Ameris Bancorp downgraded to Hold at SunTrust on rising banking competition
As reported earlier, SunTrust analyst Jennifer Demba downgraded Ameris Bancorp (ABCB) to Hold from Buy and kept her $60 price target, saying she now reserves a bullish rating for banks with near-term catalysts such as outsized asset sensitivity and restructuring that offer upside earnings potential. The analyst cites greater loan/deposit competition, bottoming non-performing loans, and accelerating de novo formation for a more cautious view toward the sector. Demba adds that Ameris Bancorp stock trades "close to fairly valued" with its price to tangible book value above its peers. As part of the broader research note, Demba also downgraded United Community Banks (UCBI) to Hold from Buy and lowered her price target to $36 from $37. She prefers the "restructuring story" IBERIABANK (IBKC) and the asset-sensitive SVB Financial (SIVB) and Synovus Financial (SNV).

FB Financial guidance may add caution about mortgage heavy banks, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Tyler Stafford noted that FB Financial (FBK) has lowered its mortgage expectations for the second half of the year, which he sees being driven by softer volumes than originally expected coupled with incremental GOS margin pressure. Stafford thinks FB Financial's guidance may make investors incrementally more cautious around other mortgage heavy banks, he tells investors. On a list of banks with the largest GOS mortgage exposures as a percentage of revenue as of Q2 2018, Stafford identifies HomeStreet (HMST), Hilltop Holdings (HTH), Fidelity Southern (LION) and Flagstar Bancorp (FBC) alongside FB Financial.

Stephens ups Fidelity Southern to Overweight with profitability seen at trough
As previously reported, Stephens analyst Tyler Stafford upgraded Fidelity Southern to Overweight from Equal Weight, as he thinks the bank's profitability is at a trough and should inflect on a path to $2.00 of EPS and a 1.00% ROA in 2020. The analyst, who also highlights the bank's 93% core deposit base and "scarcity value," raised his price target on Fidelity Southern shares to $31 from $25.
