Arrow Financial: Attractively Valued With A Flattish Earnings Outlook

Loan growth will likely improve this year on the back of the economic recovery in New York. The net interest income is barely sensitive to rate changes in the first year of a rate hike. The provision expense will likely return to a normal level this year on the back of loan additions. The December 2022 target price suggests a high upside from the current market price. Further, AROW is offering a decent dividend yield.
