On Jul 5, 2013, we reiterated our Neutral recommendation on
Texas Capital BancShares Inc.
), primarily based on increased revenues. However, higher
expenses were the downside.
The company's first-quarter earnings of 80 cents per share lagged
the Zacks Consensus Estimate but beat prior-quarter earnings by
14%. Additionally, over the last 60 days, the Zacks Consensus
Estimate for 2013 inched up 0.3% to $3.29 per share. For 2014,
over the same time period, the Zacks Consensus Estimate moved
north by 0.6%.
We are impressed with the growth of Texas Capital BancShares.
Amid a sluggish Texan economy, the company's gain in market share
from its economizing competitors was a positive. Texas Capital
BancShares' relationship-based model has been the main driver for
revenue and asset growth over the past 5 years.
Additionally, the company's capital ratios remain above the
levels required to be considered well capitalized. We believe
that Texas Capital BancShares' strong capital position will help
in both organic growth with the addition of loan and deposit
relationships, and in opportunistic expansions in the future.
However, we are concerned about the company's rising expenses,
which are likely to affect top and bottom-line growth. Further,
Texas Capital BancShares is primarily a Texas-based company and
without any efforts at diversification, its top and bottom lines
are likely to suffer. Additionally, intense competition from
nationwide and regional financial institutions and declining
demand in mortgage warehouse lending volume could weigh on
