  • Barclays and Deutsche Bank Have Potential

    By Alexander Cho - August 2, 2013 | Tickers: BCS, DB, GS

    It is hard to understand the upside opportunity in European banks, especially when there is almost nothing ever positive said about them. However, given enough time, I think the risk-to-reward on owning European banks will eventually improve.

    What happened with these three European banks?

  • A Proposed Portfolio of High-Quality European Banks

    By Federico Zaldua - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: DB, HBC, SCGLY.PK

    With clear signs of macroeconomic improvement in the Euro-zone, I think its time to start looking at its banking sector. European banks are not only the most sensitive sector in the economic cycle but also they trade very cheaply compared to their US peers (there is an average 42% price to tangible book discount to US banks.) On average, European banks sell for 80% of their tangible book value. In more »
  • Is it Time to Invest in Europe?

    By Andrés Cardenal - July 26, 2013 | Tickers: SAN, BAMXF, DB, TOT

    The European crisis has been long and painful, and it´s still too early to tell if the Eurozone is leaving the recession behind. However, recent economic data is quite auspicating, so maybe it’s time to invest in European companies while they are still cheap.

  • Luxury Brands in an Austere Market

    By Jacob Wolinsky - July 16, 2013 | Tickers: COH, DB, JCP, KORS, RL

    Stocks of luxury brands Coach (NYSE: COH), Ralph Lauren (NYSE: RL), and Michael Kors (NYSE: KORS) have declined or have remained steady in recent months, reflecting divided opinion on these stocks. While the market believes these stocks need a correction, it may just be a blessing in disguise as discounted entry levels can be used to create fresh long positions.

  • These 3 Banks Are Back on Track

    By Shweta Dubey - June 10, 2013 | Tickers: DB, HBC, JPM

    With an improving housing sector, a rising employment rate, and more flexible monetary provisions, the banking sector has experienced some relief in 2013.  Yet future topline growth will face some challenge due to lower interest margins and slow loan growth rates. Banks are countering this sluggishness with better expense control and more favorable lending for its customers.  Let's take a look at 3 banks and their plans to sustain more »

  • Will Bitcoin Crush America's Exorbitant Privilege?

    By Fani Kelesidou - May 28, 2013 | Tickers: BCS, DB, WU

    With great power comes great responsibility. When it comes to the country that issues the international currency, with great responsibility comes great benefit.

    For the period 1990-2010, the World Bank estimated that U.S. seigniorage income derived from the greenback's international status has averaged $15 billion per year. When foreign demand for dollar assets was factored into the equation, U.S.-based borrowers enjoyed an extra annual cost of more »

  • Profit From Africa's Growth With These 3 Early Movers

    By Rupert Hargreaves - May 21, 2013 | Tickers: BCS, C, DB, MA, V | Editor's Choice

    According to the IMF, Africa's economic growth is surging, especially south of the Sahara with the Ivory Coast and Mozambique leading the way. Economic growth in countries south of the Sahara is expected to be 8% this year. South Africa, the continent's biggest economy, is expected to grow at 3.3% after recovering from the crippling mining strikes in the country last year.

    Meanwhile, the IMF predicts that more »

  • What Recent Earnings Mean for This Bank Stock

    By Alex Bastardas - May 13, 2013 | Tickers: BBVA, SAN, DB

    Finding a value stock in today's bullish market is not an easy task. Many analysts agree that, while there might be cheap individual stocks out there, there are very few sectors that are deeply undervalued as a whole. One exception would be European banks.

    One of the leading Euro banks, the Spanish banking giant Banco Santander (NYSE: SAN), recently reported its Q1 2013 earnings. What do they mean for more »

  • A New Look at Europe's Banking Landscape

    By John McKenna - May 8, 2013 | Tickers: SAN, DB

    On May 2, European Central Bank head Mario Draghi announced a 25 basis point cut in the bank’s interest rate, from 0.75% to 0.5%. This marks the first cut in the interest rate since July 2012 amidst the news of slow economic activity in the first quarter. This was a cut that many saw coming, as the ECB looks to stimulate lending to businesses among Europe’s more »

  • A Health Check on the Global Financial System: Can Europe Get Out of Its Jam?

    By Fani Kelesidou - April 23, 2013 | Tickers: ALU, SAN, DB

    After completing its latest health check on the global financial system, the International Monetary Fund revealed some encouraging results. Apparently, the system is in better shape than it was six months ago, showing greater resilience against macroeconomic headwinds. In the U.S., the housing market is on the comeback trail, consumer spending is picking up, and banks seem poised to increase lending.

    But, don't get your hopes up. The more »

  • The Cyprus Deal and Its Consequences

    By Federico Zaldua - March 27, 2013 | Tickers: BBVA, BNPQY.PK, DB

    In Cyprus, one euro in the bank is not worth one euro in the hand anymore. At least for deposits larger than 100,000 euros. Brussels and Cyprus's authorities have finally arrived at what seems to be a definitive bailout deal. We shall see capital controls to avoid a full-on bank run but, at least, it looks like we have a deal.

  • Are Shipping Stocks In Troubled Waters?

    By Jacob Wolinsky - March 18, 2013 | Tickers: DB, DSX, MATX, NMM

    Almost nothing has gone right for investors in the shipping sector. With international freight rates continuing to trend low, operators are finding it difficult to cover their expenses.As a result, losses are mounting.

    The Baltic Dry Index – a widely cited indicator of vessel demand and rates in shipping industry – has averaged 769 since the starting of the year. This is the lowest since at least 1985 and is indicative more »

  • Financial Transactions Tax and Investors

    By Nate Wooley - February 28, 2013 | Tickers: SAN, BAC, DB, JPM

    Starting next year the European Union – less the United Kingdom and a few others – will begin collecting a tax on all financial transactions. That means that for stock purchases, derivative contracts, repurchase agreements and other items that traders execute there will be an extra levy attached. This should have a fun effect on the market.

    This is one of a host of items, both in the U.S. and Europe more »

  • 3 Bank Stocks: Looking Forward, Not Back

    By Nate Wooley - January 14, 2013 | Tickers: BAC, DB, JPM

    Banks haven't been anyone's favorite companies for a while. The trouble with the world economy has been largely laid at their feet. The issues that confronted America and Europe were structural, yes, with overly risky mortgages and other questionable practices blamed on bankers being more interested in quick return than solid performance. It's no wonder that most people, from politicians to the man on the street, put more »

  • Deutsche Bank May Have Traded off Libor Rigging

    By Kyle Colona - January 11, 2013 | Tickers: BCS, DB, UBS

    Several news sources are reporting that an internal probe at German banking powerhouse Deutsche Bank (NYSE: DB) may have profited from trades linked to fixed Libor rates.

    My previous post concluded that the ongoing probe into the Libor Rate fixing scandal could be a big factor in the banking sector in 2013. Last year Barclays PLC (NYSE: BCS) was the first to get caught with their hand on the Libor more »

  • JPMorgan Sanctioned for Energy Trade Manipulation

    By James Stafford - December 1, 2012 | Tickers: BARC, DB, JPM

    It’s not so easy any more to manipulate energy trades. Ask JPMorgan Chase & Co. , which last week became the first ever actively trading company to be sanctioned by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

    The Commission has revoked JPMorgan Ventures Energy Corp’s right to trade power for six months in 2013.

    JPMorgan isn’t the only one to be targeted for manipulative energy trades this month: The more »

  • Pinching the Banks a Little More

    By Matt Koppenheffer - November 30, 2012 | Tickers: BCS, DB, GS, NES.DL

    The Wall Street Journal's article highlighting the fact that currency trading is getting squeezed for banks is a good reminder of what's a near-constant threat for many bank businesses: transparency. 

    And the explosive growth of electronic trading has brought transparency to a roughly $4 trillion-a-day market, making buyers and sellers less reliant on big banks to pair them up.

    We've of course seen this in a big more »
