Due to their strategy to earn their way to a reasonable capital structure rather than merely dilute their shareholders. Additionally, the markets that they operate in are relatively solid in part due to their acquisition of Amegy bank several years… More

From Jordan Wathen:

This West Coast banking franchise stands to gain from rising interest rates and can benefit from expanding margin, as it shifts its balance sheet toward higher-yielding loans.

Zions Bancorp has a treasure trove of non-interest-bearing deposits that are starting to show their value as interest rates rise. Roughly 46% of its total deposits were non-interest-bearing at the end of the last quarter, one of the highest proportions of such deposits of any publicly traded bank. As interest rate rise, Zion's profitability should follow because of the simple fact that it doesn't pay interest on nearly half of its deposit liabilities.

Beyond rate increases, Zions should see its earnings expand, as it redirects cash and securities (bonds) in its portfolio toward higher-yielding loans. More than a quarter of its interest-earning assets are tied up in securities that yield an average of 2.21% per year. In contrast, the company's loans yield nearly twice as much, or 4.27% per year, on average. A shift in its balance sheet composition adds another lever for earnings growth.

Best of all, Zions trades for roughly 1.6 times tangible book value, while peers trade at 2 times tangible book value or more. It's my view that the valuation differential should compress, as rising net interest margin allows its true earnings power to show up in its bottom line, driving Zions stock higher throughout 2018.
