UPDATE: Regions Financial Q2 Profit Meets Estimates

In a report published Wednesday, Jefferies & Company reiterated its Hold rating on Regions Financial Corporation (NYSE: RF), but slightly lowered its price target from $8.00 to $7.50.

Jefferies noted, “We are reducing our '13 and '14 estimates by a nickel to $0.75. Our price target moves to $7.50 from $8 on our estimate revisions. Net interest income challenges drive the bulk of the revisions as net interest margin and balance sheet size both came in lower-than-expected. A placeholder for potential preferred equity issuance (we assume $500mm at a 7% coupon) also took a couple cents out of our estimates.”

Regions Financial Corporation closed on Tuesday at $7.08.
