Hanmi Financial: Attractively Valued With A Positive Outlook On Topline Growth

Nationwide economic recovery will likely drive mid-single-digit loan growth this year. The presence of liquid assets and sticky deposit costs will ensure that the margin expands soon after a rate hike. The December 2022 target price suggests a high upside from the current market price. Further, HAFC is offering a decent dividend yield.
