The streak is over: EagleBank's run of record earnings ends

Every consecutive quarter for the last 10 years, Eagle Bancorp Inc.'s profits have grown — a fact celebrated in press release after press release that proclaimed “record earnings” since 2009. The run of record profits was a point of great pride for Paul, who in January called it “a record of consistency rarely seen in public company financial performance.” Bank officials didn't specifically point out the end of the run in either their press release Wednesday or conference call Thursday, but they confirmed it without comment. EagleBank (NASDAQ: EGBN) stock opened lower this morning at $53.27 per share but was trading up at $55.21 late Thursday afternoon.
