UPDATE - Oppenheimer downgraded Citizens Republic Bancorp (NASDAQ: CRBC) from Outperform to Perform.

Analyst, Terry McEvoy, said, "Citizens Republic has climbed out of the deep hole resulting from the real estate-heavy acquisition of Republic Bank in ’06 and the recessionary environment in Michigan. Profitability has returned and should continue. Issues with regulators have been resolved. Restoring the $300M DTA will boost tangible book value by ~$7.60/sh and was the big catalyst behind our recent positive view on CRBC. With the stock up 95% over the past year, we have decided to lower our rating to Perform and rescind our $15 price target. Citizens still holds $300M of TARP, making it difficult for us to raise our price target much above the current price."
