Analysts are anticipating more upside for PNC.
Shares of PNC Financial have outperformed the industry in the past year. The company has an impressive earnings surprise history, with earnings surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate in all four trailing quarters. Second-quarter 2021 results were supported by fee income growth on higher asset management revenues, while higher expenses were negatives. Its focus to expand the middle-market lending franchise, and bolster digital products and service offerings bodes well. Given a strong balance sheet position, the execution of inorganic growth strategies to diversify revenue sources is likely to support the performance. However, continuously mounting expenses will likely keep hurting the bottom line of PNC Financial in the near term. Net interest margin (NIM) is anticipated to remain under pressure in the near term due to low interest rates.
The stock is up 6.63% over the past four weeks, and no earnings estimate has gone lower in the past two months, compared to 7 higher, for fiscal 2021. The consensus estimate has moved up as well.
