First Internet Bancorp (NASDAQ:INBK) had its buy rating reissued by analysts at Maxim Group. They currently have a $46.00 target price on the stock. The analysts wrote, “INBK reported 4Q17 core EPS of $0.63, beating consensus of $0.62. It was a strong quarter, in our view, driven by 11.9% (not annualized) linked-quarter growth in loans (despite portfolio loan sales), which in turn produced 6.3% growth in average earning assets. Combined with a 7bp widening of the net interest margin (NIM), net interest income was up 8.2%. The loan growth was mainly attributable to INBK’s new public finance group, as well as single- tenant lease financing. Mortgage banking income was down 40% (due to seasonality/lower mortgage originations and a lower gain-on-sale margin), though partially offset by sales of single-tenant lease financing loans.””

Westamerica Bancorporation (NASDAQ:WABC) had its hold rating reaffirmed by analysts at Maxim Group. The analysts wrote, “WABC reported 4Q17 EPS of $0.16, which included four non-recurring items (a DTA writedown, a low-income housing LP writedown, a loss contingency, and securities gains) which reduced EPS by a net $0.42. WABC’s core performance metrics were, as usual, very strong. WABC’s deposit franchise remained its greatest strength. However, lack of loan growth remains WABC’s greatest challenge, in our view, in spite of period-end loans growing slightly from 3Q17. We are raising our 2018 EPS estimate (which includes stabilization of loan balances) to $2.65, from $2.30, mainly based on a lower tax rate.””
