Is The Financial Crisis Over For Financial, Banking Stocks? / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Charles_Carnevale

The cause of the financial crisis of 2007 -2008, also known as the Great Recession of 2008, is attributed to many different theories.  However, one of the most common theories is an easy money regulatory environment that led to an abundance of subprime loans, which in turn inflated real estate prices to bubble levels.  Additionally, many blame the Financial sector, predominantly the money center banks, for exploiting the lax lending requirements with reckless and greedy behavior.  They did this through the creation of and proliferation of high risk bundled subprime mortgages (CMO’s, etc.) and the creation of other high risk and complex financial products that were being pawned off as safe investments. 

Additionally, many attribute the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999 as a major contributor to the financial crisis, which effectively removed the separation between investment banks and depository banks in the United States.  There was plenty of blame to go around, which included avarice, greed and excesses on Wall Street, and the failure of regulators to include many of the most prominent credit rating agencies.

Why Hedge Funds Love Greek Banks / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Tim Melvin writes: Talk about looking for best investments in the most unlikely places...

The bad economic news out of Greece has dominated the headlines for several years now. As the country tries to work its way back to prosperity, a solvent banking system is going to be critical to the process. Banks have seen their capital base shrink from bond haircuts, bad loans and depositors withdrawing money to get it outside the beleaguered nation's banking system.

Are TARP Warrants the Way to Play Banks? / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Tim Melvin writes: Believe it or not, the big bank rescue plan known as the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) actually has created some of the best investments for profiting from a banking recovery.

As you may recall, the federal government gave money to troubled banks in order to shore up balance sheets wounded by falling real estate and mortgage security prices. As part of the program, the government took an equity stake in these institutions in the form of preferred stock and equity warrants.

Why It's Time to Sell Too Big to Fail Banks / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: I'm not buying any bank stocks here. I don't own any at present. And if I did, I'd either sell them or at least hedge them.

It's not that they're doing poorly. They're not. Bank stocks have been strong because they've been making record profits. It's been a good ride if you're a Too Big To Fail bank or a shareholder.

By: Money_Morning

Tim Melvin writes: In the past, you used to be able to safely invest at the bank. But now, it might be wiser to invest in the bank, as the following institutions are looking more like attractive stocks to buy now.

Thanks to the U.S. Federal Reserve, interest rates will continue to be low for an extended period of time, meaning savers would be lucky to get 1%.

All of a Sudden, the Bank Stocks Look Good / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Profit_Confidential

The results are in for the bank stress tests by the Federal Reserve, and they show, as I had expected, an improving banking sector that is more defensive to risk and much improved as far as their balance sheets, liability, and vulnerability to dire market conditions.

The banks were tested based on a worst-case scenario to see the impact on the bank stocks and their ability to handle a major financial crisis. The key assumptions include: the unemployment rate surging to 12.1% (read “What the Government Doesn’t Want You to Know About Jobs Creation”), a pullback in the equities market by over 50%, and home prices falling by over 20%. (Source: Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System web site, last accessed March 18, 2013.)

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: The major bank stocks all closed off 2012 near their respective 52-week highs; and they’ve started 2013 with a bang. Driven by an improving banking industry that is assuming less risky businesses while shoring up their balance sheets and producing stronger units, the KBW Bank Index is up eight percent, outperforming both the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones.

By: Bloomberg

Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein spoke with Bloomberg TV's Stephanie Ruhle at the company's technology conference in San Francisco today. Blankfein said he has no plans to leave Goldman: "The combination of this being who I am and what I do and having absolutely no other interests makes me think this is what I'll be doing for a while."

Blankfein said that while he "would love to be wanted" for the role of Treasury Secretary, "that seems like such a distant hypothetical."

Meredith Whitney Says Bank of America is Stock to Own Without a Doubt / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Bloomberg

Meredith Whitney appeared on "Bloomberg Surveillance" this morning and told Tom Keene and Sara Eisen and said that she's "uninspired" by Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat. Whitney said, "We don't really know Mike Corbat's agenda...He didn't give us an agenda and he didn't even give us a time stamp for when he's going to give us an agenda, so it left people a little bit uninspired."

Whitney also said, "I think that Citi does ok, but I think Bank of America is the stock to own this year without a doubt." She also said that the S&P fraud charge is "very hard to believe and I think that's going to be very hard to prove."

Bank Stocks at Crucial Crossroads 2013 / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: Last year was a great year to be an investor in bank stocks. We’ve seen a dramatic rebound in the price of most major bank stocks in America as the earnings outlook has improved. Clearly, the earnings outlook at the beginning of last year was far too pessimistic for the majority of bank stocks.

The question: what’s in store for bank stocks in 2013?

Martin Hutchinson writes: Between the financial crash of 2008 and the Eurozone debt crisis, big Western banks have turned into pretty dodgy investments.

I'm talking about the banks that were "too big to fail."

These days the profits of these fine institutions are largely dependent on not writing off too many bad loans or incurring huge fines and lawsuits from various past misdeeds.

But they shouldn't have. Because no matter how satisfying it might be to see justice done after the financial crash of 2008, the truth is the real crooks have already gotten away.
