"We believe FHN has two significant mortgage related settlements on the horizon: 1) FHA Investigation and 2) Private Label Securitization, but even after absorbing the losses, we estimate FHN remains 10% cheaper on P / TBV and P/E vs. peers.," Siegnthaler wrote. He also sees the bank as one of the best positioned to see a significant rise in net interest income once the federal funds rate begins to rise.

The analyst's price target for First Horizon is $13, or 14.4 times his 2015 EPS estimate of 90 cents, and 1.6 times year-end 2014 tangible book value, "in line with peers."
