Lloyds should give the backslapping a rest after sale of government stake | Nils Pratley

Fanfare over paying back £894m on top of £21.2bn bailout seems undue given the job of turning around bank is far from done The smart way for Lloyds Banking Group to mark the government’s sale of its last shares would have been a short and dull statement. Something along these lines: “We thank the government and UK citizens for their support over the last nine years. The bank learned the lessons of the crisis many years ago and we’re sticking to our plan to support the UK economy.”Instead, Lloyds summoned trumpets and calculators and issued a three-page announcement. “We’ve turned the group around,” declared boss António Horta-Osório. The investor relations department found the most flattering way to present the state’s investment return: including dividends, £894m more has been returned than the £21.2bn put in.

Правительство Великобритании продало оставшуюся долю в Lloyds

Правительство Великобритании продало оставшуюся долю в капитале крупнейшего в стране ипотечного кредитора Lloyds Banking Group, таким образом, он вновь стал полностью частным чуть менее чем через десять лет после того, как был спасен в разгар финансового кризиса. Так, правительство реализовало 638,4 млн акций или 0,89%-ную долю в капитале банка, при этом финансовые детали сделки раскрыты не были. Сообщается, что вырученные средства пойдут на снижение уровня государственного долга.

Bill Blain: "Talking To Accounts The Bottom Line Is Asset Prices Continue To Rise Despite Our Disbelief"

From "Blain’s Morning Porridge - May 17" by Bill Blain of Mint Partners * * * Talking to accounts yesterday I was struck by a sense of resignation: stocks seem determined to go stratospheric despite the fact many people think a correction/reset is coming. Bond spreads are at all time tights – and everyone seems to be chasing them down. Investors are frustrated they aren’t catching the returns, and its human nature to find reasons to talk these gains down. For instance, I’m told stock market gains are due to “passive” investments like indices and ETFs rather than active management, and tight yields are unsustainable as and when Central Banks normalise and interest rates climb higher. (Actually, I think rising interest rates are further away than many think!) But, the bottom line is financial asset prices continue to rise despite our disbelief! Should you buy into the story at this stage in the game? The rule remains – don’t join the last 5% of a rally just so you can catch the first 25% of the subsequent crash! There are other games to play – and that's to look for real value opportunities out there. There are many stories – some of which are risk and obvious, some of which require a little more imagination. For instance, financials have become a real “catch a falling knife” sector in recent years. Everyone is very aware of capital risk – the risk a central bank or regulator might decide a bank’s capital position is unsustainable and bail-in debt investors across the curve. It's only happem with a number of basket case Olive-belt banks thus far. Banco Popular is an interesting one – back in the pre-crisis days it was one of my top European bank stocks. It had a superb cost/income ratio, stuck to the retail businesses it knew well, had management focused on the bottom line and even a AAA rating for a long while. Now its in serious trouble with a massive Euro 37 bln NPL book – mainly from real estate. Its Capital COCO Perps are trading around 18% plus. Is it a buy? Its put itself on the block to sell, sell assets or restructure. The stories are Bankia, Santander and BBVA are all keen to look, but we also know Sabadell and Caixa already decided it’s a “no-way Jose” story. The price is likely to remain highly volatile on any news – like another bank pulling out or rumours of an ECB capital discussion. I’d be interested in any client views on POPSM. And, also in banking, hats off to Lloyds – the last of the UK governments stake will be sold today, netting us taxpayers a modest £900 mm profit. Lloyds was a superb bank before the Global Financial Crisis (again sticking to its knitting and never pretending to be what it patently was not), but got hoisted on the petard of buying the toxic HBOS. Put Lloyds in context of the RBOS bailout. The government put $46 bln into a bank that has subsequently managed to lose a further £56 bln, and is still essentially unfixed and unresolved. I must giggle at a chum of mine working there who thinks changing the name of their investment bank to Natwest will somehow make them more palatable…  Or how about Scotland? As the risk of Indyrep2 reduces, how do fancy buying Scottish debt at a considerable spread over gilts, when the risk is exactly the same.. (unless of course Scotland ever does get itself chucked out the UK!)

Lloyds claims taxpayers have made £900m profit from bailout

Banking group confirms it has returned to private sector as government sells its remaining shares Taxpayers have made a near-£900m profit on the sale of their shares in Lloyds Banking Group, the lender claimed, as the government offloaded its final stake in the bank and closed a chapter of the 2008 financial crisis.Almost nine years ago, the government pumped £20.3bn into Lloyds, buying up a stake that was 43% at its peak. The bank said proceeds of the share sales and dividends since then meant taxpayers had received nearly £900m more than the government pumped in. Continue reading...

Labour's water renationalisation plan is a damp squib | Nils Pratley

Jeremy Corbyn’s manifesto pledge would be expensive – a simpler remedy would be tougher regulationRenationalise the water industry? If the Labour party’s ambition was to make a few quid for the exchequer and do nothing else, the idea is not as wild as it may sound, despite shadow chancellor John McDonnell’s gloriously loose description of his financing proposals.The government can currently borrow on the public markets at less than 1.5% for 10 years. It might cost £69bn to buy the entire water industry – that’s the value of the regulated assets – but the companies would arrive with income streams in the form of dividends. At Severn Trent, for example, the dividend yield is 3.4% at the current share price. Borrowing at 1.5% to buy an asset yielding 3.4% is not the worst trade in the world. And the state, if it wanted to act like a supercharged private equity house, would be able to juice up returns by refinancing the companies’ debt at a lower rate. Continue reading...

Will Theresa May defend workers' rights? Don't hold your breath | Nils Pratley

The prime minister has been slippery about getting workers on boards – and looks likely to do little about the gig economyThe suspicion that Theresa May’s commitment to strengthen the rights of workers is less than it seems is encapsulated in this passage from her piece for the Financial Times: “I will ensure that there is representation for workers on company boards and that every employee has a statutory right to receive information about key decisions affecting their company’s future.”Let’s take these promises in reverse order. Tell us more about this right to hard facts that supposedly information-starved workers will enjoy? “This will be no more than the information that shareholders currently receive,” says the prime minister’s next sentence.

Зомби банки

Современные банки используют невероятное множество приемов для сокрытия реальных финансовых результатов, манипулируя отчетностью, перераспределяя убыточные позиции через различные дочерние подразделения или выводя их в момент отчетности через производные финансовые инструменты. Даже находясь в чудовищных убытках, превышающие способность банка эти убытки обслуживать, сам банк может демонстрировать, что все отлично. Уже проходили в 2006-2008 и знаем.Оценить реальное состояние крупных финансовых структур через публичную отчетность технически и даже теоретически невозможно. Даже регулирующие структуры с высоким уровнем доступа могут быть введены в заблуждение умелой манипуляцией и подтасовкой информации. Сама по себе чистая прибыль априори является бумажным показателем и далеко не всегда коррелирует с денежными потоками и способностью обслуживать действующие обязательства.Это больше демонстрирует тенденции, чем реальную устойчивость. Однако, есть ориентиры, которые могут идентифицировать предел устойчивости – последовательность убытков, величина убытков от общих активов, от действующей выручки и что главное – от капитала.Красная черта – 3 квартала подряд убытков, около 0.5% убытков от активов в год, 15% от капитала и 20% от выручки. У этой границы, как правило, требуется принудительная реструктуризация активов, неизбежная санация и перестройка системы управления банком.На этот раз небольшой обзор крупнейших банков Западной Европы.Данные по чистой прибыли за год. Квартальная выборка не позволяет вычленить столь продолжительные ряды, а во-вторых, периодичность публикации результатов различна – кто то в квартал, но многие за пол года. Поэтому для полной картины – за год и поэтому только по 2015. Банки Греции, Португалии, Кипра и Ирландии в обзор не попали в виду своей ничтожности в объеме всех активов банков Западной Европы. Данные по ING в сопоставимом виде не получены.Собственно, в состоянии зомби пребывают, как минимум 4 финансовые структуры - Royal Bank of Scotland Group (этот особенно плохо, никто в мире так ужасно не выступает, как RBS - там форменная катастрофа), Barclays, Lloyds Banking Group и Unicredit. В тяжёлом состоянии Deutsche Bank и испанские банки. Английские банки держатся исключительно за счет хороших связей с ФРС, ЕЦБ и с Банком Англии. Убери нерыночные механизмы поддержки и все ... банкроты.В устойчивом положении HSBC, BNP Paribas, Nordea, DNB, Svenska Handelsbanken и Swedbank, т.е. в основном скандинавские банки.Пока не затрагиваю причины такого положения – это потом, т.к. у каждого своя специфика. Однако те, кто в наиболее тяжелом положении – такое состояние обеспечили преимущественно за счет рынка активов, а не кредитного портфеля. В будущем я рассмотрю более подробно банки, т.к. в условиях революционных сдвигов в денежном рынке (отрицательные ставки) весьма интересно проследить за динамикой операционных показателей и изменения баланса.Но пока совершенно точно можно сказать, что американские банки в сравнении с европейскими более устойчивы.

Банки британцам деньги не вернут

http://ru.euronews.com/ Миллиарды, потраченные правительством Великобритании на спасение банков, вероятно, никогда не вернуться к налогоплательщикам. К такому выводу пришла комиссия британского парламента по расследования деятельности властей во время кризиса 2008 года. Только национализация тонущих крупных банков Lloyds и RBS обошлась казне в 82 млрд. в перечете на евро. Так же комиссия во главе с Маргарет Ходж выявила грубые ошибки правительства при спасении самого первого рухнувшего банка -Northern Rock.
