Wedbush initiates coverage on New York Community Bancorp (NYSE: NYCB) with a Neutral rating and a price target of $15.00.

Analyst Peter Winter commented, "NYCB is in the precarious position of holding back asset growth to avoid crossing $50 billion in assets and becoming a SIFI bank until they close the AF acquisition. We believe this will be an accretive acquisition and lead to the resumption of balance sheet growth. However, there are a few near-term overhangs, including 1) will NYCB receive Fed approval to close AF by year-end (which we believe will happen), 2) NYCB’s large CRE concentration, 3) not positioned for rising rates, and 4) Flat EPS growth will continue through 2H16."
