TCF Financial Corporation (TCB): New Analyst Report from Zacks Equity Research - Zacks Equity Research Report


TCF Financial's third-quarter 2014 earnings missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. However, it came above the prior-year quarter figure. Higher expenses dragged the results while organic growth was reflected aided by increased revenues and higher loans and deposits balances. The company is better positioned in the market given its positive approach to market conditions and consistent top-line growth. Moreover, the company's strong capital deployment activities triggered by a healthy capital position reflect its robust footing. Also, continuous development in the consumer and commercial loan portfolio has led to enhanced performance of the company in spite of the sluggish economic recovery. However, persistent regulatory pressure and continuous rise in expenses continue to weigh on the financials.
