Zions Bancorporation is a financial holding company that focuses on providing community banking services by its core business lines of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and corporate banking. Zions Bancorporation is one of the USA’s premier financial services companies, with combined total assets exceeding $55 billion. A Zacks’ investment analyst recently wrote, “Zions’ first-quarter 2014 adjusted earnings were in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Improvement in non-interest income and prudish expense management were the tailwinds. However, a decrease in net interest income (NII), lower benefit from provisions for loan losses, deterioration in capital as well as profitability ratios were the dampeners. Nevertheless, we believe improving credit quality and initiatives undertaken to enhance balance sheet position will augur well for the company’s financials going forward. However, we remain concerned about a still low interest-rate environment, elevated expense level, asset-sensitive balance sheet and regulatory restrictions.”
