B. Riley Securities…

B. Riley Securities analyst Steve Moss raised the firm's price target on Meta Financial Group to $38 from $33 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. Yesterday's rally in bank stocks on news of a vaccine is reasonable, as an increased likelihood of a vaccine bodes well for sharply lower credit costs and better economic activity, Moss tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees potential for higher estimates in 2021 if there are no lockdowns.

B. Riley FBR analyst Steve Moss raised the firm's price target on Meta Financial to $27 from $25 and reiterates a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst left a conversation with management "upbeat" and believes Meta has a number of potential catalysts to drive the stock higher over the next six to twelve months, including improving credit trends, the potential for an acceleration in loan growth in fiscal 2021, higher fee income as a result of H&R Block and real-time payments. Meta trades at a 32% discount to peers, which is attractive, Moss tells investors in a research note.

Net interest income for…

Net interest income for the fiscal 2020 third quarter was $62.1 million, a decrease of 7%, from the same quarter in fiscal 2019. The decrease was primarily driven by lower overall balances and yields realized on the loan and lease portfolios along with a decrease in investment securities balances, partially offset by a reduction in total interest expense. During the third quarter of fiscal year 2020, loan and lease interest income decreased $9.8 million and investment securities interest income decreased $4.4 million, when compared to the same quarter in fiscal 2019, while interest expense decreased $9.4 million over that same period. The quarterly average outstanding balance of loans and leases as a percentage of interest-earning assets for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 decreased to 48%, from 68% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, while the quarterly average balance of total investments as a percentage of interest-earning assets decreased to 17% from 31% over that same period. These decreases were primarily due to the increase in interest-earning cash balances related to the EIP program. The Company's average interest-earning assets for the fiscal 2020 third quarter increased by $2.31 billion, to $7.61 billion from the comparable quarter in fiscal 2019, primarily due to the effects of the EIP program.
