Texas Capital Bancshares, Inc. (NASDAQ:TCBI) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “buy” rating in a research note issued to investors on Tuesday. The firm presently has a $90.00 price target on the bank’s stock. Zacks Investment Research‘s price objective indicates a potential upside of 11.94% from the company’s current price.

According to Zacks, “Shares of Texas Capital have outperformed the industry so far this year. This price performance is backed by the company’s decent earnings surprise history. It surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters. The company’s diversified fee income sources should continue driving its top-line growth. Moreover, Texas Capital’s strong capital position keep it well poised for opportunistic expansions. Though, lack of geographical diversification and significantly mounting expenses keep us apprehensive, Texas Capital’s margins have relaxed to some extent, following the three rate hikes since December 2016.”
