In the report, the analyst notes:

" ETFC's quarterly earnings of 3 cents per share came in line with analysts' expectations for the latest quarter. That was down by 75% from earnings in prior quarter and but was an improvement from a loss of $6.74 loss per share in last year's third quarter. ETFC saw an 8.4% sequential drop in revenue but was helped by overall credit quality improvement in the quarter.

"ETFC's MACD is indicating a weak bearish signal. Although the indicator is above the critical level of 0, which implies that the underlying moving averages are bullish, the MACD has crossed below its 9-day moving average or signal line. This suggests that positive momentum has begun to slow."
