Huntington Bancshares Incorporated HBAN has reported third-quarter 2021 adjusted earnings per share of 35 cents, missing the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 36 cents. This excluded TCF Financial (NASDAQ:TCF) Corporation’s acquisition-related adjustments.

Full-quarter benefit from the TCF acquisition along with fee income growth, particularly in wealth management, capital markets, and card and payments processing, drove the top line. Improvement in deposits and a provision benefit were other positives. However, results were adversely impacted by elevated expenses and the TCF Financial acquisition-related expenses. Declining capital ratios created a headwind.

The company reported a net income of $377million in the quarter compared with $303 million in the year-ago quarter.

Revenues Rise, Expenses Escalate

Total revenues (FTE) climbed 36% year over year to $1.7 billion in the third quarter. Also, the top line marginally surpassed the consensus estimate.

Net interest income (FTE basis) was $1.16 million, up 42% from the prior-year quarter. The upside resulted from an increase in average earning assets, partly offset by a lower net interest margin (NIM), which contracted 6 basis points (bps) to 2.90%.

Non-interest income climbed 24% year over year to $535 million. The upside mainly stemmed from increased service charges on deposit accounts, card and payment processing, leasing revenues, and capital market fees.

Non-interest expenses flared up 81% on a year-over-year basis to $1.29 billion. This was chiefly due to higher professional services costs, outside data processing and other service costs, and marketing expenses.

The efficiency ratio was 74.90%, up from the prior-year quarter’s 56.1%. A rise in the ratio indicates a fall in profitability.

As of Sep 30, 2021, average loans and leases at Huntington increased 26% on a sequential basis to $109.9 billion. Average total deposits increased 26% from the prior quarter to $142.3 billion.

Credit Quality: A Mixed Bag

Net charge-offs were $55 million or an annualized 0.20% of average total loans in the reported quarter, down from $113 million or an annualized 0.56% recorded in the prior year. In the third quarter, the company reported a credit provision benefit of $62 million compared with a provision of $177 million in the prior-year quarter.

The quarter-end allowance for credit losses rose 17.4% to $2.21 billion. In addition, total non-performing assets totaled $893 million as of Sep 30, 2021, up 48.3%.

Capital Ratios Decline

Common equity tier 1 risk-based capital ratio and regulatory Tier 1 risk-based capital ratio were 9.57% and 11.35%, respectively, compared with 9.89% and 12.37% reported in the year-ago quarter. Tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio was 6.96%, down from 7.27% as of Sep 30, 2020.

Capital Deployment

The company has repurchased $300 million of common stock through Sep 30 and has $300 million remaining under the current authorization.

Our Viewpoint

Huntington put up a decent performance in the September-end quarter. Though the company displayed continued efforts in increasing loan and deposit balances, margin pressure and elevated expenses remain concerning. However, improvement in credit metrics on lower provisions due to the recovering economy is a tailwind.

Currently, Huntington carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

Performance of Other Banks

BancorpSouth (NYSE:BXS) Bank BXS delivered net operating earnings of 68 cents per share that beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 67 cents. However, the bottom line compares unfavorably with the 69 cents reported in the year-ago quarter.

Bank of Hawaii Corporation BOH reported third-quarter 2021 earnings per share of $1.52, surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $1.34. Also, the bottom line compares favorably with the 95 cents reported in the prior-year quarter.

Bank OZK (NASDAQ:OZK)’s OZK third-quarter 2021 earnings per share of $1 surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 97 cents. The bottom line reflects growth of 19% from the year-earlier quarter’s number.


Bitcoin, Like the Internet Itself, Could Change Everything

Blockchain and cryptocurrency has sparked one of the most exciting discussion topics of a generation. Some call it the “Internet of Money” and predict it could change the way money works forever. If true, it could do to banks what Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) did to Blockbuster and Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) did to Sears. Experts agree we’re still in the early stages of this technology, and as it grows, it will create several investing opportunities.

Zacks’ has just revealed 3 companies that can help investors capitalize on the explosive profit potential of Bitcoin and the other cryptocurrencies with significantly less volatility than buying them directly.
