It's "difficult to overstate" the benefit accruing to The Bancorp (TBBK) from higher short-term interest rates, COO Frank Mastrangelo tells Mark Palmer. The company has a high-class problem in that it generates more cash from its prepaid debit card issuance than it can profitably invest. Finding higher yields with where it can deploy the money would substantially boost the bottom line.

    This is absolutely spot on. The company has an enormous float in its prepaid business that has been earning close to nothing. As rates rise, their increased earnings go straight to the bottom line.
