The Atlanta, GA based company reported third quarter earnings of $179 million, or 33 cents per share, down 82% from $1.07 billion, or $1.98 per share a year ago. The latest quarter was negatively affected by settlement charges, while the prior year was positively impacted by balance sheet actions. Excluding special items, earnings were $358 million, or 66 cents per share, up from $314 million, or 58 cents per share in the third quarter of 2012. On average, analysts expected to see earnings of 69 cents per share. Revenue fell to $1.92 billion, from $3.84 billion last year. Analysts expected to see revenue of $2.07 billion. Net interest income was $1.24 billion, down from $1.30 billion a year ago. Net interest margin was 3.19%, down from 3.38% last year.

  • Compass Points Upgrades SunTrust to "Buy" (STI)

    On Thursday, financial services company SunTrust Banks, Inc. (STI) was upgraded to "Buy" at Compass Point. The firm raised its rating on STI from "Neutral" to "Buy," and has given the company a $38 price target. This price target suggests a 12% upside from the stock's current price of $33.26. Analyst Kevin Barker commented: "We believe these headwinds are already priced into the stock and the bank stands to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of a pickup in CRE and residential lending." "In addition, we believe the company is getting very little credit for cost save initiatives and would screen as being more asset sensitive if it were to let its swap portfolio run-off. Add in the potential for significant capital return following the March 2014 CCAR and we believe STI is setting up to outperform in the next year," added the analyst. SunTrust shares were up 15 cents, or 0.45%, during pre-market trading Thursday. The stock is up 17% YTD.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of SunTrust Banks, Inc. (STI) have a 1.20% yield based on Wednesday's closing price of $33.26. SunTrust Banks, Inc.

  • Deutsche Bank Upgrades SunTrust Banks to "Buy" (STI)

    Early on Friday, analysts at Deutsche Bank upgraded financial services firm SunTrust Banks, Inc. (STI) due to its potential EPS upside as the housing market continues to recover. The analysts upgraded STI from "Hold" to "Buy" and now see shares reaching $39, up from the previous target of $36. This price target suggests about a 20% upside to the stocks' Thursday closing price of $32.55. "Our upgrade reflects the potential for EPS upside over time from a continued recovery in housing--which should result in better than expected trends in credit and expenses," Deutsche Bank analyst Matt O'Connor said. "While mgmt has pointed to expense leverage from lower environmental costs/operating losses, the benefit of declining default staff- related costs has not been quantified. We estimate this opportunity is worth $150m or $0.20 per share and is not reflected in consensus estimates. We are raising our 2015E to $3.46 (vs. FC of $3.24) to account for this." O'Connor added, "Our upgrade reflects this opportunity, the recent 8% decline in the stock (vs. -5% for peers) and the stock trading at 9x our 2015E (a 15% discount vs. peers)." SunTrust shares were up $1.29, or 3.96%, during pre-market trading on Friday. The stock is up 14.81% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of SunTrust Banks (STI) offer a dividend yield of 1.23% based on Thursday's closing price of $32.55 and the company's annualized dividend payout of 40 cents per share.
