Jefferies initiates coverage on Oriental Financial Group (NYSE: OFG) with a Buy. PT $20.00.

The firm comments, "We believe there is more room to run in the shares, as the company trades a significant discount to mainland-based peers with a similar ROE profile, has better post-acquisition capital than expected, should beat guided ‘13 EPS, and has strategic tailwinds. While the market remains concerned about a difficult operating environment in Puerto Rico, we believe the company can still generate better than average returns."
