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.

Buy
Fidelity Southern upgraded to Buy from Hold at Sandler O'Neill
Sandler O'Neill analyst Casey Whitman upgraded Fidelity Southern (LION) to Buy from Hold, stating that he thinks the rationale to combine with Ameris Bancorp (ABCB) "makes a lot of sense" given Fidelity's solid deposit base and scarcity value in Altanta. Whitman thinks Ameris is paying a reasonable price and Fidelity shareholders are receiving valuable consideration, making the deal "a win for both sides." Given the all-stock deal, he raised his price target on Fidelity Southern to $33 from $25 to reflect the conversion rate and his $41 price target for Ameris shares.

Ameris Bancorp upgraded to Buy from Hold at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Jennifer Demba upgraded Ameris Bancorp (ABCB) to Buy and raises her price target to $48 from $36. The analyst notes that the acquisition of Fidelity Southern (LION) announced last month will give it a "significant deposit platform in economically vibrant Atlanta, reduce its cost of funds and further improve efficiency." Demba adds that she is less concerned with the latter's rate of loan growth, noting that although the management targets an expansion of over 10%, it has also promised to maintain the bank's underwriting standards.
