Stephens: The Market Is Underappreciating Pinnacle Financial's BNC Bancorp Acquisition

Feb 5, 2018

The Analyst Stephens analyst Tyler Stafford upgraded Pinnacle Financial from Equal-Weight to Overweight and increased the price target from $72 to $74. The Thesis The market has largely ignored the EPS accretion associated with the BNC Bancorp buy, tax reform benefits and accelerating fundamentals from the legacy franchise, Stafford said in a Monday note. Pinnacle Financial shares trade almost at the same price they did prior to the M&A announcement, the analyst said. The company's shares have seen the greatest multiple compression of any mid-cap bank, declining 5.1 times its next-twelve month multiple, Stafford said. The stock trades at the lowest relative multiple to the bank index in recent history, he said. Citing recent investor meetings with Pinnacle management, Stafford said investor interest was strong and sentiment is beginning to shift more favorably on the stock. Stephens tweaked its 2018 and 2019 earnings per share estimates and consequently nudged up its price target. "With the integration nearly complete, continued double-digit growth expectations, and [greater than] 1.50-percent ROA, we believe the current 12.8x multiple can re-rate higher and are upgrading PNFP.
