Sterne Agee analyst Brett Rabatin has a neutral rating on BOK Financial and said on April 25 after the company reported its first-quarter results that the company continued "to exceed our profitability assumptions" and that "results were very impressive in 1Q12 given strong fee income mostly from mortgage banking and solid loan growth," however, the analyst also said that he believed the company's ROA would "be slightly lower going forward." Rabatin said that "BOKF's model of diversified fee revenues sources and geographic positioning are continuing to result in stronger profitability than we expected," and that "the shares have some modest near-term upside and we continue to view the shares as a lower valuation alternative to more dearly valued Texas peers," but that "a more bullish thesis requires expectations for higher interest rates, [since] securities account for ~50% of earning assets." The analyst estimates that Bok Financial will earn $4.68 a share during 2012, followed by 2013 EPS of $4.33. Interested in more on BOK Financial? See TheStreet Ratings' report card for this stock.
