Piper Sandler Delivers Respectable Quarter On Sponsor And S&T Strength

Piper Sandler is a more emerging bank in terms of reputation, but is delivering well against some of the comps in the advisory sector. Piper Sandler has a sales and trading business that is also doing well thanks to volatility in equities and interest rates. Public finance is also a solid exposure. Annualising PIPR's EPS, the 15x P/E ratio looks alright but only if you expect the factors driving volatility to abate. Unfortunately, we still see risks on the horizon. There are offsets in the business, but the timing could be better due to advisory exposure.
