O'Connor also said that the company's estimate of the hit to its Tier 1 common equity ratio from regulators' proposed capital rules, "combined with continued uncertainty over mortgage putbacks and sluggish underlying earnings may cause share buybacks to be less than expected over the next 1-2 years."
First Horizon's shares have now returned 1% year-to-date, following a 32% decline during 2011.
