OmniAmerican is included on KBW's "consolidation list" of potential acquisition targets.
KBW analyst Brady Gailey's price target for the shares is $28. The analyst said in late July, after OmniAmerican reported its second-quarter results, that "we continue to believe OABC's attractive franchise will be sought after by at least a handful of buyers," after the end of the three-year moratorium, following the company's conversion from mutual to stock ownership in January 2010.
