FBR Capital reiterated its Outperform rating and $25 price target on Flagstar Bancorp (NYSE: FBC) and added it to their Top Picks List.

The firm comments, "Following 4Q12 results, in which Flagstar shares were hit by what some investors viewed as a material reduction in the ongoing profitability of the mortgage business, we are reiterating our Outperform rating, $25 price target, and moving FBC to the FBR Top Picks list in place of PHH Corp. (NYSE: PHH) as we remain confident the company's core profitability and momentum in the mortgage business remains high and will outpace remaining legacy costs, which should lead to a ~$25 TBV by YE14. With shares now trading at a 20% discount to 4Q12 TBV of $18.97 and with over 60% potential upside to our FY14E TBV of $25.97, we continue to have high conviction in FBC despite this near-term setback."
