SVB Financial Umpqua Holdings have most upside in group, says Barclays Barclays said SVB Financial (SIVB) and Umpqua Holdings (UMPQ) have the most near-term upside in U.S. small-cap banks. The analyst believes SVB Financial could raise its 2015 preliminary outlook and for its FireEye holdings to swing to a modest gain and for Umpqua to demonstrate expense synergies form the Sterling Financial acquisition.
