Zacks Investment Research upgraded shares of Texas Capital Bancshares (NASDAQ:TCBI) from a hold rating to a buy rating in a research report released on Tuesday. Zacks Investment Research currently has $104.00 price target on the bank’s stock.

According to Zacks, “Shares of Texas Capital have outperformed the industry so far this year. This price performance is backed by the company’s decent earnings surprise history. It surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters. The company’s diversified fee income sources should continue driving its top-line growth. Also, Texas Capital’s margins have relaxed to some extent, following  four rate hikes since December 2016. However, persistently increasing expenses mainly due to hiring of experienced bankers is likely to hurt bottom line growth. Nevertheless, the company's strong capital position remains a tailwind.”
