PacWest Downgraded To Neutral By D.A. Davidson

On Friday, PacWest Bancorp (NASDAQ: PACW) reported Q2 earnings per share at $0.68 vs. $0.69 estimates and a revenue of $255.9 million vs. $264.9 million estimates.

D.A. Davidson's Gary Tenner downgraded PacWest from Buy to Neutral, while maintaining a $45.00 price target after Q2 earnings per share missed the analyst's $0.72 estimate.

Despite missing earnings, the downgrade was largely due to PacWest's share price rising towards the analyst's 12–18-month price target, said Tenner, "Regardless of the method, we think a significant capital return to shareholders is already priced into the stock."
