Horizon Bancorp: Attractively Valued With Prospects Of Balance Sheet Growth

Economic growth, team expansion, and limited Paycheck Protection Program forgiveness will likely drive loan growth next year. Improvements in the asset mix and an interest-rate hike will expand the net interest margin. Provisioning will likely return to a normal level next year. The December 2022 target price suggests a modest upside from the current market price. Further, Horizon Bancorp is offering a satisfactory dividend yield.
