They currently have a $31.00 price target on the stock. Stephens’ price target would suggest a potential upside of 1.67% from the stock’s previous close.
The analysts wrote, “We’re pleased to see CBTX announce a share repurchase authorization of $40 million that could potentially return a portion of the Bank’s excess capital to shareholders (current TCE of 13.0%). Our lowered EPS forecast assumes operating expenses remain elevated due to the ongoing FinCEN investigation through mid-2020, although we have very limited visibility on this timeline. Our $31 price target represents a 16x multiple on our 2020 EPS forecast of $1.91.””
