B. Riley Downgrades 6 Banks to Neutral from Buy Given More Uncertain Industry Outlook for Loan Growth, Concerns on Credit, Capital

9:23AM ET 6/14/2022 MT Newswires
B. Riley downgrades Bank of Princeton (BPRN), Bridgewater Bancshares (BWB), HomeStreet (HMST), New York Community Bancorp (NYCB), Flagstar Bancorp (FBC), and Peoples Bancorp (PEBO) to neutral from buy. The firm also lowered the price targets for all six banks.

In a Tuesday research report, the firm wrote that the downgrades are due to a more uncertain industry outlook for loan growth, especially commercial real estate, and concerns about credit and capital.

The firm believes higher interest rates could slow loan growth and credit risks, and should pressure valuations.

B. Riley wrote that it continues to favor Silvergate Capital (SI), Customers Bancorp (CUBI), Triumph Bancorp (TBK), and Meta Financial Group (CASH), noting their distinct fintech businesses.
