John Keeley Comments on Bancorp South

February 05, 2014 | About:
Bancorp South (BXS) was another position that made a positive contribution during the quarter and for the year. In 2013, the regional ban k climbed over 61 percent and added 91 basis points of return to the portfolio. The compan y produced a very solid quarterly earnings report and remains a core restructuring holding fea turing a new CEO, Dan Rollins, who comes from a successfully run bank in Texas, Prospe rity Bank. We believe there are consider- able operating costs that can be taken out of the b ank over a multi-year period so we remain very positive on the stock and believe it should pr oduce earnings upside over the next few years.
