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

Guru Investment Theses on U.S. Bancorp

Bill Frels Comments on U.S. Bancorp - Jun 25, 2014

U.S. Bancorp (USB), headquartered in Minneapolis, also finished the period as one of the Fund’s top five performance contributors. While the quarter remained challenging for many other banks locked into low-margin banking activities, U.S. Bancorp advanced 6.09% for the period, with a solid performance advantage relative to its peers. While many of its competitors contend with defensive measures and diminished growth prospects, U.S. Bancorp’s principled adaptation of risk management controls following the financial crisis of 2008-2009 has placed it ahead of the competitive and regulatory curve. Recognized by both their current commercial customers and financial regulators for its integrity and financial soundness, U.S. Bancorp enjoys one of the highest credit ratings available. Over the years, U.S. Bancorp has quietly cultivated and expanded its lucrative commercial lending operations, as well. We have been steadily acquiring and holding the company’s stock for some years, purchasing at attractive prices when the market does not recognize its value.

Lountzis Asset Management Comments on US Bancorp - Mar 21, 2014

US BANCORP (NYSE:USB) is one of the top 10 largest banks in the country with assets of $357 billion at year end 2013. The company has an outstanding credit culture, resulting in few credit losses and generates substantial fee income providing greater stability and predictability in its earnings. In 2013 the company generated $10.9 billion in net interest income and $8.8 billion in fee income. Operating revenues were $19.6 billion and net income was $5.6 billion or $3.00 per share.



The company’s financial metrics are among the best in the industry with a return on common equity of over 16%, return on tangible common equity exceeding 23% and a return on assets of 1.6%. We believe US Bancorp is well positioned to continue to build upon its outstanding franchise both organically and through selective acquisitions in the years ahead. The company should earn in excess of $3.10 in 2014 representing a price earnings multiple of 12.5x earnings-a favorable valuation for an outstanding diversified financial institution. While interest rates remain low, when they do rise the bank is well positioned to grow its net interest income and margins. Furthermore, with a large fee income stream the bank is better able to weather low interest rate periods than most competitors who lack such a large recurring fee income stream.
