According to Zacks, “Shares of Texas Capital have underperformed the industry over the past six months. The company has a disappointing earnings surprise history, beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate in only one of the trailing four quarters. Further, earnings estimates have been going down ahead of the company's first quarter 2019 results. The company’s persistently increasing expenses, mainly due to hiring of experienced bankers, is likely to impede bottom-line growth to some extent. Moreover, lack of geographical diversification remains a concern. However, growth in revenues and favorable interest rates are likely to support the company. Also, the company’s diversified fee income sources, along with rising loans and deposits balances are likely to drive top-line growth.”
