Jefferies maintains a 'Hold' on Zions Bancorp (NASDAQ: ZION) price target of $21.00 (from $22.00).

Analyst, Ken Usdin, said, "Results were OK (loans/fees up, credit better), but the core NIM was weaker and questions on capital remain. We now forecast a lower net interest income (NII) trajectory (core NII to decline into mid-2013), which takes a nickel from our estimates ('12 to $1.20, '13 to $1.75). Trading at 0.95x TBV, ZION has limited downside risk, in our view, but we would like to see better core business momentum before getting more constructive."
