••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Business Description

Industry: Banks » Savings & Cooperative Banks
Compare:OCN, HOME, NYCB, PBCT, HCBK » details
First South Bancorp Inc., a Virginia corporation was formed on October 1996. The Company serves as the holding Company for First South Bank, or the Bank, a North Carolina chartered commercial bank. The Company oversees the business of the Bank and operating a commercial banking business through the Bank. It provides commercial banking services to its markets located in the state of North Carolina. It attracts deposits mainly from within the market area by offering a variety of deposit instruments, including checking accounts, money market accounts, statement savings accounts, Individual Retirement Accounts, and certificates of deposits. In addition to deposits, the Bank derives funds from loan principal and interest repayments, maturities and paydowns on investment securities, and interest payments thereon. It generates loans and deposits throughout eastern and central North Carolina where the Bank's offices are located. Further, the Bank sells single-family mortgage loans that it originates to the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation. It also exchanges single-family mortgage loans for mortgage-backed securities with FHLMC. Its lending activities are subject to the Bank's written, non-discriminatory underwriting standards, its outside investors, and to loan origination procedures prescribed by the Bank's Board of Directors and its management. Additionally, it offers fixed-rate and adjustable-rate residential mortgage loans and residential and commercial construction loans. The Bank underwrites its commercial business loans on the basis of the borrower's cash flow and ability to service the debt from earnings rather than on the basis of underlying collateral value, and the bank seeks to structure such loans to have more than one source of repayment.
