Recent News & Updates
First Republic Remains A Top-Notch Growth Bank Stock
First Republic comfortably beat sell-side pre-provision earnings and core EPS expectations, with strong loan growth and growth in wealth management fees. Management seems confident that loan growth can continue at a mid-teens clip, and the bank continues to leverage strong customer satisfaction to add more clients and market share. First Republic's uncommonly strong growth profile puts its outside typical bank valuation approaches, but I expect the market will continue to reward high revenue, earnings, and TBV growth.
