First Internet Bancorp (NASDAQ:INBK)‘s stock had its “buy” rating reiterated by equities research analysts at Maxim Group in a report issued on Friday. They currently have a $46.00 price objective on the bank’s stock. Maxim Group’s target price would suggest a potential upside of 11.25% from the stock’s current price.

The analysts wrote, “INBK reported 4Q17 core EPS of $0.63, beating consensus of $0.62. It was a strong quarter, in our view, driven by 11.9% (not annualized) linked-quarter growth in loans (despite portfolio loan sales), which in turn produced 6.3% growth in average earning assets. Combined with a 7bp widening of the net interest margin (NIM), net interest income was up 8.2%. The loan growth was mainly attributable to INBK’s new public finance group, as well as single- tenant lease financing. Mortgage banking income was down 40% (due to seasonality/lower mortgage originations and a lower gain-on-sale margin), though partially offset by sales of single-tenant lease financing loans.””
