DA Davidson analyst Kevin Fitzsimmons raised the firm's price target on Hancock Whitney to $60 from $56 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst sees the company as an asset sensitive beneficiary of higher interest rates given its ability to lag on deposit pricing. Fitzsimmons adds that Hancock Whitney appears to be well-positioned for additional net interest margin expansion in the second half of 2022.

"Today's…

"Today's results reflect another solid quarter and the early achievement of our target efficiency ratio of 55%," said John M. Hairston, President and CEO. "As expected, upward rate movement was a tailwind and helped us achieve our efficiency target sooner than expected. Earning assets repriced our NIM back over 3% in the quarter, and we anticipate additional widening in the second half of this year. Loan growth exceeded our expectations, and we were able to deploy excess liquidity via organic growth. We observed an expected runoff in deposits due primarily to seasonality, spending of federal grant funds, with modest pressure from competitive rates, however, the mix remained favorable with almost half in DDAs. Pre-provision, net revenue (PPNR) was up $12 million in the quarter as improvement in net interest income and fees offset an expected increase in expenses. Credit continued improvement and ratios remain at historically low levels, with criticized and nonperforming loans declining and net recoveries in the quarter. Capital remains solid and we believe we are positioned well in today's uncertain macro environment."

Jefferies analyst Casey Haire lowered the firm's price target on Hancock Whitney to $55 from $60 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares as he adjusted estimates for the banks under his coverage ahead of Q2 reports from the group. He sees rate hikes and strong loan growth lifting net interest income estimates, but thinks quarter-over-quarter NII growth starts to top-out toward year-end 2022 and notes that sentiment remains weak for the group with "catalysts tough to find."

Truist analyst Jennifer Demba lowered the firm's price target on Hancock Whitney to $58 from $63 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares as part of a broader research note on Banks. The analyst is updating her model to reflect concerns about the health of the economy over the medium term due to high inflation. The group's improved net interest margins this year are also offset by slower loan and earning asset growth in 2023, though she still sees banks as well positioned for a downturn with strong capital and loan loss ratio levels as well as diverse loan portfolios, Demba tells investors in a research note.

"We are pleased to report another solid quarter and a good start to 2022," said John M. Hairston, President and CEO. "Despite the ongoing challenges in today's environment, our first quarter's results were on track, with core loan growth of 8% LQA, stable deposits, the beginning of a widening NIM, historically low levels of asset quality metrics, continued expense management and solid capital levels. We will continue to execute our strategic plan and adjust for any challenges in today's ever changing environment."

Truist analyst Jennifer Demba lowered the firm's price target on Hancock Whitney to $65 from $70 while also cutting her FY22 EPS view by 3c and FY23 view by 10c to $5.19 and $5.77 respectively to reflect its lower deposit service charges. The analyst still keeps a Buy rating on the shares and believes that Hancock Whitney should outperform over the near term given that it has significant tailwinds that include improving loan growth, substantial asset sensitivity and First Horizon sale merger disruption opportunities.

Truist analyst Jennifer Demba upgraded Hancock Whitney to Buy from Hold with a price target of $70, up from $50, after its Q4 earnings beat. The analyst cites the company's better loan growth, widening net interest margin, and improved expense control. Demba adds that the core loan growth momentum for Hancock Whitney should continue into 2022 and more of the company's excess liquidity can be deployed in loans and some bonds.

Raymond James analyst…

Raymond James analyst Michael Rose raised the firm's price target on Hancock Whitney to $65 from $60 and keeps a Strong Buy rating on the shares. While another negative provision and lower core noninterest expenses drove the Q4 headline beat, softer revenues drove a slight pre-tax, pre-provision income miss vs. Street expectations as NIM pressure was greater than forecast while mortgage/ specialty fees weighed on fee income, Rose tells investors in a research note. He continues to view risk-reward positively given ongoing fundamental momentum juxtaposed with its discounted valuation.
