5 Banks Stocks Profiting on the Most Profitable Loans (Update 2)

SVB Financial Group (SIVB) of Santa Clara, Calif., grew its commercial and industrial loans by 12% during the fourth quarter, to $2.0 billion, as of Dec 30.

Usdin said that the company's overall 22% loan growth in 2011 was "the fastest pace within our coverage universe," led "primarily by C&I, which makes up roughly 85% of total loans. The analyst added that "SIVB's corporate finance client base and buyout finance lending practice [has] been responsible for much of the growth," and expects the trend to continue in 2012, "given strong client acquisition trends within the corporate finance channel and robust M&A activity in the tech sector."

Jefferies analyst Casey Haire has a "Hold" rating on SVB Financial Group, with a $57 price target, and estimates the company will earn $3.15 a share in 2012, followed by EPS of $3.50 in 2013.
