Stocks Roundup: F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB) Stock Dips Despite Q1 Earnings Beat, Costs Up

On Thursday, Shares of F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB) showed the bearish trend with a lower momentum of -0.32% and ended its trading session at $12.51. The company traded total volume of 2,465,174 shares as contrast to its average volume of 3.10M shares. The company has a market value of $4.42B and about 319.09M shares outstanding. F.N.B. Corporation’s FNB first-quarter 2022 adjusted earnings per share of 26 cents surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 24 cents. The bottom line reflects a decline of 7.1% from the prior-year quarter.
Results were primarily aided by a rise in net interest income (NII). However, higher expenses and provisions, along with a decline in fee income, were the undermining factors. Probably because of these negatives, shares of the company lost 1.8% in after-market trading.
Results excluded the Howard Bancorp merger-related significant items and branch consolidation costs. Including those, net income available to common stockholders was $51 million, down 44.1% from the year-ago quarter.

Revenues Improve, Expenses Rise

Net revenues were $312.4 million, up 2.2% year over year.
NII was $234.1 million, up 5% year over year. Growth in average earning assets was partly offset by the repricing impact on earning asset yields, mitigated by the lower cost of interest-bearing deposit accounts and improved funding mix, with a reduction in higher-cost borrowings and growth in non-interest bearing deposit accounts.
The net interest margin (FTE basis) (non-GAAP) contracted 14 basis points (bps) to 2.61%.
Non-interest income was $78.3 million, down 5.4% from the prior-year quarter. The decline was primarily due to a fall in mortgage banking income, partly offset by the rise in service charges and wealth management revenues.
Non-interest expenses were up 23% year over year to $227.4 million.
As of Mar 31, 2022, the common equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio was 10%, in line with the Mar 31, 2021 level.

The Company offered net profit margin of 39.50% while its gross profit margin was 0. ROE was recorded as 8.00% while beta factor was 1.15. The stock, as of recent close, has shown the weekly upbeat performance of 2.63% which was maintained at 3.13% in this year.
