The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. We remain encouraged by TCF Financial's increasing loans and strong deposit mix, depicting its organic growth. Also, steady improvement in the economy will support its future performance. Further, the company’s focus on expansion highlights its future growth prospects. Additionally, the company benefits from an improving credit quality and is witnessing enhanced profitability ratios as well. However, bottom-line growth remains challenged by the company’s expanding cost base.  Further, margin pressure and a stringent regulatory landscape remain other near-term headwinds.”
