In a report published Monday, Keefe, Bruyette & Woods analyst Catherine Mealor downgraded the rating on WSFS Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: WSFS) from Outperform to Market Perform, but reiterated the $80.00 price target.

In the report, Keefe, Bruyette & Woods noted, “A nice quarter for WSFS with lower credit costs, higher NIM, and solid fee growth driving LQ improvement in profitability to a 1.2% ROA (or 1.07% normalizing for credit costs).
