US Bancorp’s Neutral Rating Reaffirmed at ISI Group (USB)
The analysts wrote, “We are reducing our 2013 EPS estimate by $0.05 mainly to reflect a modestly lower mortgage banking revenue outlook, slightly slower loan growth, and slightly more NIM pressure (all in 1Q13) following recent comments from senior management. We are maintaining our 2014 and 2015 EPS estimates as we anticipate USB will be able to offset a slower revenue outlook by controlling costs more aggressively.”
