  • FirstMerit Q2 Profit Rises, But EPS Misses Estimates (FMER)

    Even though the second quarter earnings of regional financial services company FirstMerit Corp (FMER) missed analysts' expectations, the stock is on the rise this morning. The company reported a 6% year-over-year increase in second quarter profits, while net interest income rose 67%. The Akron, Ohio-based company posted a second quarter net income of $48.5 million, or 29 cents per share, up from $30.6 million, or 28 cents per share, earned in the same period a year ago. According to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, the company was expected to earn 31 cents per share in the quarter. On a tax-equivalent basis, FirstMerit's second quarter net interest income was $201.6 million, up from $121.7 million last year. The company's non-interest income in the second quarter, excluding losses on securities transaction of $2.8 million related to the disposition of securities acquired from Citizens, was $72.2 million, up 32% from last year. "FirstMerit's strong second quarter financial results continued to reflect profitable growth. We completed our acquisition of Citizens on April 12 and introduced the FirstMerit brand to our new branch locations in Michigan and Wisconsin in June. As a combined company, we are now focused on taking advantage of the many revenue growth opportunities we see across our Midwest footprint. Our value proposition provides consistently strong financial results supported by strong credit quality, a solid balance sheet and high capital levels," said Paul G. Greig, FirstMerit chairman, president and CEO. FirstMerit shares were up 53 cents, or 2.45%, during morning trading on Tuesday. The stock has gained 56.24% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of FirstMerit (FMER) offer a dividend yield of 2.88% based on Tuesday's intraday trading price of $22.26 and the company's annualized dividend payout of 64 cents per share.
