The positives from a steeper yield curve outweigh the negatives for small and mid-cap banks, says Credit Suisse. Banks with larger reinvestment portfolios like Signature (SBNY) and Webster (WBS) will benefit from higher reinvestment rates. As higher rates come with stronger economic growth, C&I-heavy lenders like Columbia (COLB) and PrivateBancorp (PVTB) should gain. At risk as higher rates lead to a slowdown in mortgage banking are Umpqua (UMPQ), Associated (ASBC), and First Republic (FRC). At risk from core-deposit outflows: Susquehanna (SUSQ), BankUnited (BKU), and East West (EWBC).
