Deutsche Bank has raised its price target from $14 to $15 on Associated Bank Corp (NASDAQ: ASBC), where it pointed to efficiency initiatives and declining BSA costs. The firm maintained a Buy rating.

In the report Deutsche Bank wrote, "We recently hosted several meetings with ASBC's CEO/CFO, and came away with greater confidence in ASBC's ability to capture a small bank deal over the next year, and were encouraged by management's focus on reducing the bank's efficiency ratio meaningfully to the low 60%s over the longer term."

Associated Bank Corp closed Monday at $14.86.
