However, growth slowed a touch in a few, so there are some things that bear watching.
1. Earnings and book value per share continue to grow quick
2. Underwriting quality remains very high
3. Loan origination rate fell off in the quarter
Here’s the bottom line: A significant amount of BofI’s value – and the premium valuation of the stock – is tied to its incredible growth rate. Loan origination is a key measure of loan growth. The bank needs to consistently originate new loans not just to grow but to replace loans that are paid off over time.
