KeyCorp: Attractively Valued With Good Prospects Of Loan Growth

Efforts to expand Laurel Road and economic factors will likely boost the loan portfolio this year. The margin will expand in the year ahead thanks to a rate-sensitive loan portfolio. However, a long-duration bond portfolio and rate-sensitive deposits will hold back the margin. Anticipated loan growth will lead to higher provisioning expenses for this year. The December 2022 target price suggests a high upside from the current market price. Further, KeyCorp is offering a good dividend yield for a bank holding company.
