Compass Point initiated coverage on Union First Market Bankshares (NASDAQ: UBSH) with a Buy rating and a $17.50 price target.

Compass Point commented, "We believe the bank is in a position of strength as it has been led by the same CEO since its inception in 1993, has never lost money through the downturn, has repaid their $36MM in TARP a year ago, and has built very strong capital levels. As support, management recently announced a 750K share repurchase program that is approved through 2013."

Union First Market Bankshares closed at $15.38 on Thursday.
