10 Community Bank Takeover Targets

5. Texas Capital Bancshares

Company Profile

Texas Capital Bancshares (TCBI - Get Report) of Dallas has seen its stock rise 44% over the past year, to close at $22.11 Monday.

Out of the four targets Olney discussed with TheStreet, he said "TCBI will probably get the most attention," as the "franchise is very good and it is in a fantastic position to be acquired by any out of state bank looking to get into the state." Not only does Texas have a growing market for residential real estate, "it has a friendly tax structure." Olney listed BB&T as possibly having interest in Texas Capital Bancshares following Comerica's deal to acquire Sterling. He also said that "Canadian banks might be interested like TD (TD)," and that " BBVA (BBVA) might also be interested because it has a significant presence in Texas. "

The company reported fourth-quarter net income of $12.1 million, or 32 cents a share, increasing from $9.5 million, or 25 cents a share, the previous quarter and $6.4 million, or 18 cents a share, a year earlier. The provision for credit losses in the fourth quarter was $12 million, declining from $13.5 million in the third quarter but up from $6.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2009.
