PNC Financial Services Group (NYSE:PNC)‘s stock had its “neutral” rating restated by Zacks in a report issued on Monday. They currently have a $87.00 price objective on the stock. Zacks‘s price objective points to a potential upside of 5.10% from the company’s current price.
Zacks’ analyst wrote, “PNC Financial’s first-quarter 2014 earnings outpaced the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Results were aided by lower provision for credit losses and declining expenses. Moreover, improved credit quality and strong capital ratios acted as the tailwinds. We believe that PNC Financial is well positioned to grow, given its diverse revenue mix, balance sheet strengthening efforts, strategic acquisitions and solid capital levels. Moreover, the company’s acquisition of RBC Bank (USA) was accretive to its earnings, excluding integration costs. However, a tepid economic recovery, a persistent low interest rate environment and increased regulatory headwinds remain concerns.”
