U.S. Bancorp Stock Outperformed S&P500 Over One Month, Is It A Buy?
U.S. Bancorp stock (NYSE: USB) has gained 0.3% in the last week, outperforming the S&P 500 (down 4.1%). Further, the same trend was evident over the one-month horizon, with the stock increasing by 1.4%. In comparison, the broader markets lost 9.3% over the same period.
The bank reported fourth-quarter results last week, with revenues and earnings missing the consensus estimates. It posted total revenues of $5.66 billion – marginally less than the year-ago period. The wholesale banking (corporate & commercial banking) revenues dropped by 3% y-o-y followed by a 9% drop in consumer banking. However, the negative effect was offset by a 5% y-o-y jump in both the payment services and wealth management units. Overall, U.S. Bancorp’s revenues were around $22.7 billion for full-year 2021 – down 2% y-o-y, mainly due to a 3% y-o-y decrease in the net interest income (NII) and lower mortgage banking revenue. The stock has performed better than the market over the last month, as the investor sentiment is positive toward the impact of expected interest rate hikes on the bank’s top-line.
